Room Selection Room Change

Room Selection Room Changes

If you have selected a room through the Room Selection Processes but would prefer a different room type and/or location you may apply for a room change using the Room Change Request Form at

  • Beginning February 27 and ending July 31, complete the room change request at MyHomeAtPenn. You may request a mutual swap with another student, a specific space in a friend's room, or a general room change. If you are interested in a general room change, include specific room types and locations you are interested in and use the additional comments section to give information you think would be helpful in finding a new room (example: "anything with a kitchen", or "any room with a private bedroom," etc).  You will only be offered spaces that meet your criteria.
  • As spaces become available through cancellation, they will be offered to students on the room change waitlist.
  • If you are offered a space, you must accept it in writing to within 48 business hours.  If we do not hear from you, the offer expires. You will remain in your originally selected room.
  • If you want to apply as a group with potential roommates, each person must submit a request. Use the "additional comments" section to include names if you have more than one roommate. If the group is offered a room change, each person must respond by the deadline.
  • If none of your preferred room types becomes available by August 6, you will keep your original assignment.
