Concerned About a Roommate?

Is your roommate’s behavior beginning to worry you? Perhaps they are displaying signs of out-of-character behavior, depression or drug abuse. You might be the closest person to them who is capable of evaluating the situation closely – and objectively. Don’t wait for the problem to escalate. Contact Residential Life staff.

Requesting a Room Change

Residence Halls*

Obtain a Room Change Request Form at your Resident Services Office (RSO). If your room change request is based on your relationship with your room- or hall-mates, you may be asked to have a consultation with your Resident Advisor or Resident Director. All other reasons will likely be handled directly by the RSO. If approved, the actual physical relocation will be communicated and coordinated by RSO. Room changes are not permitted during the first and last two weeks of any quarter.

UCR Campus Apartments*

A room or apartment change should be requested using a Contract Cancellation Request Form, which can be obtained at the UCR Campus Apartments Resident Services Office or the Housing Administration Building. If approved, UCR Campus Apartment relocations are communicated and coordinated by the Resident Assignments office, located in the Housing Services Administration Building.

*Room/apartment changes cannot be guaranteed and are not permitted without official approval of Housing Services. There is a $75 administrative fee for all room changes. Other damage and cleaning fees may apply, as well as penalties and disciplinary action for unauthorized room/apartment changes.

Roommate Agreement Form

Complete the Roommate Agreement form with your roommate(s) to establish ground rules for your living environment. After it’s completed, return it to your Resident Advisor.
