There are a few ways students assigned to Winter Session residences can request to switch rooms. We try our best to accommodate these requests but cannot make guarantees.
Before moving in
To help you find another UBC student to switch rooms with, you can use our Room Switch forum.
After moving in
If you would like to switch rooms after moving into residence and you find another student who shares the same floor, house, or residence area with you whoÂ wants to switch, please visit your residenceÂ Front Desk together to discuss your request.
Students who live in different residence areas can also request a switch and must visit our Main OfficeÂ together to discuss the request.
There is aÂ $10 administration fee per person.
Students who would like to move rooms, but are unable to find another student to switch withÂ can apply online for a room transferÂ beginning at the end of the first week of classes. Room TransfersÂ are offered based on availability. Before applying, we encourage youÂ to speak with a Residence Life team member, who would be happy to discuss your concerns and help you find a solution and access resources. There is aÂ $50 fee forÂ room transfers.
