Room assignments

Important for September 2020:  Your room assignment/offer of UNB residence accommodations is conditional on in-personal classes resuming and residences being open and operating normally in September 2020.  Due to the uncertainty created by the COVID-19 pandemic, the University of New Brunswick reserves the right to delay residenece occupancy or revoke residence accommodation offers completely. 

Room assignments, for both incoming and returning students, are posted on July 30 on your eServices account. If you do not see your room assignment, or have questions regarding your assignment, please contact our residence administrator at

Viewing your room assignment

  • Log in to your eServices account. If you do not know your login credentials, please call the Registrar's office.  
  • Select the ‘Residence’ tab and then select ‘Fall’ as the term. Your winter room assignment should be the same as the Fall, you can view it by selecting ‘Winter’ as the term.

Requesting a room change

We understand that following check-in, your room assignment may not meet your needs. Contact your Lead Proctor (after September 15) to request a room change, all room changes must be approved by your residence life coordinator (RLC) and Residence Administration before moving. 

There is a fee for changing rooms. This fee will be charged to your student account when you pick up your new room keys. Any additional charges or credits resulting from your room change (I.e. different room rates) will also be applied to your account.

If you have applied for a single room, review our criteria on how single rooms are assigned.

Priority for room transfers

If you have special needs that require an expedited room change, speak directly with your RLC. You may be required to provide documentation indicating your medical or other special needs.

Students requesting a room change due to special needs must complete our Special Room Assignment Consideration form.

Living with a roommate 

Living with a roommate or roommates is one of the most exciting aspects of living in residence, but it can also be challenging at times. This is why it’s important early in the year to talk to your roommate(s) about setting boundaries and addressing anything that could be a source of conflict.

To help navigate this conversation, we have put together a roommate handbook to help you and your roommate(s) have a positive residence experience.
