As soon as a student completes the housing process, roommate information is given to the student online. Students are encouraged to contact their roommates as soon possible.
Roommate Requests – Before Move In
Students who want to live together should sign up for housing at the same time while space is available.
If a full room is not available, students who wish to be roommates may request a room swap. To make the request, one student fills out the Room Swap Form and the other person's currently assigned roommate also fills out the Room Swap Form. The two students swapping must know each other's Texas Tech Student ID in order to make the request.
Both students must be eligible for the requested space or Learning Community and both students must have already signed up for housing.
Roommate Requests – After Move In
Students who are current residents and wish to switch rooms should contact their hall office.
