Room Changes During Room Selection until prior to the Room Selection End Date

Room changes can occur at any point during Room Selection, up until assignments are made final.

Students who have a room reservation for the upcoming academic year may change their room using the Room Swap Tool.

Please see more information about the Room Swap Tool here.

Room Changes During the Academic Year

Housing assignments are final and there is a room freeze during the move-in preparation: the date in which assignments are finalized until mid September for students who have fully reserved a space through HLS Housing. During this time, housing assignments cannot be changed. Students who do not yet have a room reserved are still allowed to shop for and reserve a space online but will not have the option to change once they have reserved a space.

Since HLS Housing is typically filled to capacity, there are very few opportunities for a room change. Room changes during the academic year are very limited and must be reviewed by the Assistant Director of Student Affairs and Residential Life. If you have an urgent need for a room change, please contact housing@law.harvard.edu with full details of why you are in need of a move.

We are unable to process room changes for current residents November 1st -February 1st. During this time, we are assisting students who are incoming to the law school for the Spring semester, such as students returning from a study abroad program and Spring Only exchange students. All current assignments are frozen and all vacancies  (including current and new spring vacancies) are offered to these students, who currently do not have housing.
