APPLYING TO TRANSFER TO A DIFFERENT ROOM/APARTMENT
We expect that your student housing will be suitable for the duration of your studies at Columbia. However, should you want to transfer to another apartment or room, you may submit a transfer request via MY HOUSING PORTAL.
Types of Transfer Requests
- General Transfer - for students in UAH units who are looking to move to another UAH unit. See information and guidelines.
- "Room to Room" Transfer - for a student in a UAH unit who wishes to move in with a friend who has a vacant room in their apartment share or dorm suite. You will need to indicate the address and room number on the transfer application. See information and guidelines.
- "Group Share" Transfer - for two or more students in UAH units who would like to live in the same apartment. (Availability is very limited.) See information and guidelines.
PLEASE NOTE: Hundreds of requests are received each term, and it is not possible to accommodate all. Requests are generally approved based on the availability of housing. Other factors include the reasons for the request, the length of time in housing, and housing eligibility.
