Interested In:

If you are hoping to move to a different space within the residence halls for the spring semester, there will be a room change request process that will take place in early November. Room change applications will be available in your housing portal with strict submission deadlines. If we are able to offer you an alternative space based on your preferences, we will contact you the week of in mid-November. You will need to complete the move-over to your new space prior to leaving for winter break. Please keep an eye on your email for detailed information about that process!

Please note that if you do have an opening within your residence hall space, you are welcome to pull someone in. If you do not request a pull in, we will assign another student to the space over the winter break. Please check your Housing Portal frequently to view updated roommate information.

If you are hoping to request a space within the on-campus apartments for the spring semester, you can submit the Apartment Request Form (available in November). These forms need to be completed and turned into the Housing, Gables or Woodside offices.

If you are hoping to move to a different on-campus apartment space or you have an opening in your apartment and would like to request to pull another student in, you are welcome to do that! The Apartment Request form and the Apartment Pull-in form are are available in mid-November. These forms need to be completed and turned into the Housing, Gables or Woodside offices.

On that note, if you do have open space(s) within your apartment and you do not have a pull-in request, we will assign another resident to that space over the winter break. Please continue to check your Housing Portal for updated roommate information!

Anyone who accepts a room change before they leave for winter break MUST move their items out of their fall room.
If you accept a new space in a residence hall for the spring semester, you must move your items to your new assignment before leaving for winter break. You should talk with your Hall Director about coordinating to move your items to your new room. If you don’t move your items out of your fall room, the new space is a void and you will go back to your fall space (or be assigned a different one).

If you accept a new space within the on-campus apartments for the spring semester, you must move all of your items home for the winter break period.

If you are planning to participate in a long-distance internship, are graduating, withdrawing from UNH or are transitioning to fully remote learning for the spring semester, you’ll need to submit a petition to be released early from the Room and Board Agreement. The Semester II Petition for Release from Housing will be available online in your housing portal in early November.  More information about the petition process can be found on our cancellation information page.

Please note that if you do have an opening within your residence hall space, you are welcome to pull someone in. If you do not request a pull in, we will assign another student to the space over the winter break. Please check your Housing Portal frequently to view updated roommate information.
