Online Room Selection
Students who hold an assignment on campus are able to participate in our Fall Online Room Selection process. This process will be available bi-weekly for four cycles starting on September 6th. Appointment Request will remain available through Monday at 11:59pm. Appointments will post on Wednesday by 3:00pm. Room Selection will take place from Thursday morning through Friday at 4:00pm. Students will have one selection opportunity. Students can begin moving 3 hours after they have selected their fall housing assignment and must complete their move by no later than 11:00pm on Sunday. Students who do not complete their move by this time will be subject to a $150 Blocked Room Fee, will be reassigned to their original space and will not be eligible for future in semester online room selection processes.

Students with a confirmed vacancy in their room are able to pull a preferred roommate into the space using the Pull-In process. Students interested in completing a pull in will be able to submit the form starting on September 6th. Both the student with a vacancy and the student being pulled in must complete this form. Residential Life Student Services will review and update approved mutual pull in requests on Thursdays before 10am. Students will be notified by email when their assignment has been updated. Students who are reassigned will have until 11:00pm on Sunday to complete their move. Students who do not complete their move by this time will be subject to a $150 Blocked Room Fee, will be reassigned to their original space and will not be eligible for future pull-ins during the fall semester.
Please note: Students must log out of all non-UMass Google email accounts in order to access the Fall Pull-In Form.
Thursday and Friday, September 12th - September 27th
Students who are in 'like' spaces and are interested in completing a person-for-person swap complete the Swap Application in SPIRE on Thursday or Friday of any week beginning on September 12th.
A like space is defined as shared-to-shared rooms, singles in the same residence hall to singles in the same residence hall, and North-to-North. Both students must also be eligible to live in the new space (i.e. a student attempting to swap into CHCRC must be a member of CHC).
• Students will have until Sunday at 11:00pm to properly check out of their assignment.
• Each student should go to the RSD of their new assignment and pick up the key for the new assignment, move within the allotted 48 hours, and then return the key to their previous assignment to their previous RSD.
Please Note: Students should not swap keys! Failure to properly check out through your Residential Service Desk will result in locks being changed at a cost of $60 to the student.
Unassigned students who are interested in securing an on campus assignment can walk in to our office to discuss on-campus availability .
