Interested in changing rooms or pulling in new roommates for Spring 2018? All current residents who will be living with us this Spring will have the opportunity to participate in online room changes for next semester on Thursday, November 30 or Friday, December 1. Our new online process is a convenient and easy way for residents to attempt to get into preferred spaces or pull in new roommates. The process is very similar to our previous in person room change process except for the creation of roommate groups.
Here is how it will work:
Step 1 - If you are only completing a room change for yourself without any desired roommates, skip this step and proceed to STEP 3. If you are interested in pulling a current or future resident into a vacant space in your unit, first you and your desired roommates will need to create a roommate group before you can process your room changes. To create a roommate group, go to housing.uncc.edu now and log into your housing account. Select Room Changes and then Create or Update Roommate Group. In order to be able to pull in roommates, you must invite the new desired roommates to the roommate group. You will need your desired roommates student ID numbers to submit invitations to the group. All participants must accept or decline the invitation before roommate group placements can be made during room changes.
Step 2 - If you want to pull roommate(s) into a vacancy in your unit for Spring 2018 OR convert your existing double tower to a single, you need to make sure that you do this online November 30 between 7:00 am - 12:00 pm to be eligible for priority placement. If pulling in roommates into vacancies in your unit, you will be able to complete these actions as long as your invites to your roommate group have been accepted and the desired space is available. Select Priority Roommate Pull-In or Priority Double to Single Conversion options and follow screen prompts. Click on the icon to lock the desired spaces. Once you finish the process, you will receive an email confirming that the action has been submitted. IMPORTANT NOTE: If you are pulling in new Spring 2018 residents, you will need to choose a meal plan for them as well. Make sure you know what they want.You will receive a confirmation from the Housing and Residence Life Office once your requests have been processed.
- If you are simply doing a room change for yourself, you can visit housing.uncc.edu
. to log into your housing account on December 1
between 12:00 pm - 8:00 pm.
Select Room Change(with optional Roommate Pull-in)
and simply follow screen prompts to search for available spaces in desired room types and living areas. You will only see available spaces for which you are eligible. Once you find an available space, click on the icon to lock the desired space for yourself. Once you finish the process, you will receive an email confirming that the action has been submitted. Please log back into your housing account to check your assignment to ensure that you see your requested space listed as one of your assignments for Spring 2018.
Step 4 - If you want to complete a room change for yourself AND pull in a roommate on December 1 between 12:00 pm - 8:00 pm, make sure that you have created your roommate group (see STEP 1). Look for spaces to accommodate you and your desired roommates together (ie if you want to pull in two others, you need to find a unit with three vacancies). Remember that your roommate group must exist before you can pull them into a unit with you. First - search for available spaces in desired room types and living areas. Select and lock spaces for yourself and the others. IMPORTANT NOTE: If you are pulling in new Spring 2018 residents, you will need to choose a meal plan for them as well. Make sure you know what they want. Once you finish the process, you and the members of your roommate group will receive an email confirming that the action has been submitted.
Please note that once you process room changes, your original Spring 2018 space(s) will no longer be available for you and will immediately become available for others interested in room changes. Once we have confirmed the final processing of your Spring 2018 room change, you will receive your final confirmation of the submitted room change.
