What if I don’t get along with my roommate(s)?
We do our best to match students with the best possible roommate(s) based on the information that is provided in the housing application. If a roommate conflict arises, we encourage residents to try to work out a resolution. If this does not work, the Resident Advisors and Residence Life Area Coordinators are trained and available to assist in resolving issues.
How do I request to change my room assignment?
Residents may request a room change during the room change periods. Detailed information including when the Room Change Request period deadline is included in the Weekly Newsletter, which is sent to all residents Cal Poly Pomona email. If the room change request is due to a roommate conflict, please contact your resident advisor. Your resident advisor will assist you in trying to come up with a temporary or permanent solution.
University Housing Services works closely with the Disability Resource Center (DRC) to address any accommodation needs of our residents as it relates to their housing assignment. Students needing specific accommodations must FIRST contact the Disability Resource Center or firstname.lastname@example.org
