How to Room Swap

After Self-Assign ends, students can still change their room! A room swap means two students agree to switch rooms and perform the swap online themselves.

To start the process simply log-in to My Housing and use the Room Swap tab on the gold bar. Advertise your room and search for another advertised room you that suits you better. Direct messages can be sent to other students through the Room Swap process.

Room Swap Steps

  1. Student A and Student B log into Room Swap, indicate building preferences and advertise their rooms.
  2. Student A "Requests" to swap with Student B.
  3. Student B logs back into Room Swap and clicks "Accept" the request.
  4. Student A logs back into Room Swap and clicks on “Initiate Swap” by Students B’s name.
  5. Student A MUST then click "Complete Swap" on the Room Swap confirmation page. The Swap is now complete!

Please note that mid-year room changes must be authorized by Housing and Residence Life staff. Any improper room changes could result in a fee. 

Room Swap will be available after room assignments are completed and will end a few weeks before move-in. If you know someone who plans to cancel and you want to swap to that room, be sure to complete a room swap PRIOR to that student canceling their housing contract/room online. You can also submit an Administrative Room Change Request, which gives Georgia Tech Housing permission to change your room assignment.

Per the housing contract, room/apartment changes that take place after move-in require authorization from the appropriate hall director.

Those in Student Staff rooms, Athletic housing, and Family-Monthly apartments are not eligible for Room Swap. Changes for these rooms should be requested by the program coordinator or assignments office.

Living Learning Community students may only room swap within their LLC residence hall with other LLC students.

First-year students in an apartment must submit a ticket to the Housing Help Desk to request a room swap.
