Undergraduate Housing Room Swap and Transfer Requests
Due to the lack of open spaces in Housing, fulfilling individual transfer requests may not be possible. Each student wishing to move is encouraged to find another student with whom to do a swap. To assist with this process, there will be a Room Swap event on Wednesday, January 17 from 5:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. in the Rieber Hall Fireside Lounge. Residents are encouraged to attend these events so that they can meet other residents interested in moving.
Submitting the Online Transfer Request is a formal request for an alternative assignment from the space currently occupied. There is no guarantee that a space will be available or that the request can be accommodated.
Request will only be considered if the following steps are completed:
- Residents are required to obtain approval from a Resident Director (RD) or Resident Services Coordinator (RSC) regarding their request at the Open Transfer/Room Swap Event before the request will be considered.
- Residents must attend the Open Transfer/Room Swap Event. Students unable to attend the Open Transfer/Room Swap Even will need to schedule an appointment with the RD or RSC before the event to be eligible for a transfer.
- Residents that have agreed to a Room Swap/Transfer will be instructed to visit the Housing Services Office to sign new contract paperwork. Approved Room Swaps/Transfers will not be considered binding or complete until all residents have signed new contracts.
If the request is approved, the transfer is binding and the student must move by the deadline stated in the new contract. The student will not be able to remain in his/her current space. Failure to move to the new room/apartment may result in assessment of improper check out fees and daily charges for each room/apartment. The costs associated with this request will be due at the time the transfer is accepted by the student.
To cancel a transfer request, use the Online Transfer Request application. If the Transfer Request application is no longer available online, please use Ask Housing at http://ask.housing.ucla.edu to email the transfer cancellation request. Cancellations may only be submitted before a request has been approved.
