Students who move from one hall or room type to a different hall or room type will be charged the published rate for the new space from the effective date of move-in.

Mid-Semester Room Change

If you want to move during the semester, you, the student, should initiate the Mid-Semester Room Change process by speaking to your Residence Hall Coordinator (RHC). You should expect to discuss why you're requesting a move and your preferences for a new location.

When the meeting is successfully completed, log in to the My Housing portal and you'll see the Mid-Semester Room Change form. Indicate the new room and building you want to move to, based on your discussion with your Residence Hall Coordinator.

We'll notify you by email whether your request has been approved or denied. If your request is approved, you'll receive instructions on picking up a key for your new space.

At that point, you need to make arrangements with your new Residence Hall Coordinator to pick up your new key, and arrange to return your key to your current Residence Hall Coordinator.

You must move within 48 hours of room change notification.

Room Changes Before Spring Close

If you would like to find another room before Fall Semester, you may either participate in Mutual Room Exchange or Find A Vacancy.

MUTUAL ROOM EXCHANGE
April 23 - 26, 2018
For returning students living in Upper-Division areas next year

Mutual Room Exchange allows you to swap rooms with another student.

  • Returning students living in Upper Division areas may swap with other students living in Upper Division areas.
  • Students living in All Gender or PRoUD communities may not participate in Mutual Room Exchange via the My Housing portal. If you are interested in a room change with another student in your community, please contact ResLife-Housing@udel.edu for further information.
To participate in Mutual Room Exchange, you will log in to the My Housing portal and select Mutual Room Exchange from the Student Home page.

Post your future assignment and list preferences for where you would like to live for the next academic year. Note: your future roommate(s) will be informed that you have made your space available for exchange.

Once your space is posted, you can search for other available spaces and make or receive offers to exchange.

Any student who has received an offer can accept that offer; however, the exchange is not complete until the student who initiated the offer finalizes the exchange by selecting Swap in the application.


FIND A VACANCY
April 23 - 26, 2018
For returning students living in Upper-Division areas next year

If you are interested in finding a vacancy on campus, you will log in to the My Housing portal and select Find a Vacancy from the Student Home page.

You can search for an open space on campus by Room Type, Location, Available Beds or any combination of these. You will also be able to view the profile of students living in the room, suite or apartment to help you determine if they are a good match for you as a roommate.

If you see a space that meets your needs, you will select it and confirm the room change.
