Room Selection for Transfer Students

Untitled-1

“Living on campus has allowed for a much easier transition into life at UT. It has made it easier to make friends and pushed me to be more involved on campus because I’m constantly surrounded by all of the wonderful opportunities we have here.” -Shelby Furer, Political Science Major, transfer student from Ohio

University Housing is excited to welcome you to the University of Tennessee!  Living on campus is an important component to your UT experience, and we are happy you are interested in joining the Volunteer community!

To ensure the quality of the UT experience, transfer students are highly encouraged to live on campus.

Please review our step-by-step instructions below to participate in the 2017-2018 Room Selection for Transfer Students:


Shortly after confirming your enrollment, University Housing will send an email notification indicating that your contract has been activated.  Please follow the instructions below to complete your contract:

  1. Log into My UT Housing using your NetID and password.
  2. If you have forgotten your password, click here and follow the instructions provided.  Once you re-set your password, return to step one.
  3. Follow the prompts to confirm student information, and to select and confirm roommate and suitemate request(s).
  4. You are preparing to enter into a legally binding contract for University Housing for the Fall 2017-Spring 2018 academic year. Click the “I Agree” button to accept the University Housing Terms & Conditions of the housing contract.

Once you submit the housing contract, you will be eligible to participate in the Room Selection process. University Housing will contact you via Volmail with instructions to participate.

 

Deadlines:

  • Fall entry transfer students, who complete a housing contract prior to February 15, may participate in Room Selection on February 17-20.
  • Fall entry transfer students, who complete a housing contract after February 15, may participate in Room Selection in June.  Additional information for Transfer Student Room Selection in June will be sent to Volmail accounts during the spring semester.

You may request any available room at any time during February 17-20.  Students who do not select a room during their Room Selection date range will be automatically assigned by University Housing.

Room Selection will be open 24 hours per day during Transfer Room Selection, and University Housing staff is available from 8am – 5pm Monday-Friday to assist students with questions.

Please follow the instructions below to select your room:

  1. Log into My UT Housing using your NetID and password.
  2. If you have forgotten your password, click here and follow the instructions provided.  Once you re-set your password, return to step one.
  3. Click on “Room Selection for Incoming Students” link.
  4. Review your roommate choices and select roommate and suitemate request(s).
  5. Select an available room.  Available rooms are determined by certain criteria, including the number of requested roommates, gender, and spaces held for various university academic programs.

University Housing contracts for transfer students enrolling for the spring semester are sent to Volmail accounts late in the fall semester.  Shortly after completing your contract, University Housing will assign you to an available space in a residence hall.  Space will continue to be assigned through the first week of spring classes.

Transfer students interested in living on campus for mini-term or summer courses can access the University Housing contract through My UT Housing.  Shortly after completing your contract, University Housing will assign you to an available space in a summer school residence hall.  Space will continue to be assigned throughout the summer.

University Housing is excited to invite our residents to find their roommate and meet other residents through the RoomSync app on Facebook!

Click the link below to add the app and find your roommate. We recommend that you not click the link from your mobile device; wait until you are in front of a computer. Don’t worry, there is a mobile app that you can add after joining RoomSync.

Once you have matched with your roommate on RoomSync, you will need to make your request official by visiting requesting your roommate through My UT Housing.

Happy Syncing!
