TRANSFERRING TO A DIFFERENT ROOM OR 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.
Three Types of Transfer Requests
- General Transfer - For students in UAH units who would like to move to another UAH apartment or room. Please note that due to limited availability, students in their first or last year of housing are typically not prioritized for transfer. 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.
