I don't get along with my roommate; How can I change my room?
Room & Roommate Change Days begin in the second week of classes. Students are allowed to change rooms on a space-available basis. All room changes must be initiated in the Housing Division. Students wishing to change their room are required to do so at the end of the semester, and not during check-in of the next semester. Students are expected to give the room keys back and remove all belongings from the current room. Storage will be available for that purpose.
May I stay in my room during vacations and breaks?
A student can stay free of charge in his or her room between terms provided he or she has paid for the next term. The only exception is for the December break. Only students whose homes are outside the UAE can stay in the housing during this period.
May I have a refrigerator in my room?
Yes, Students may bring in mini-refrigerators only.
May I cook in my room?
No, students are not allowed to cook in their rooms. This includes, but is not limited to, using electric pots, ovens, microwaves, hotplates and toasters. This rule has been instituted to ensure a safe and hygienic environment for all residents.

What items should I pack and bring to university?
Single bed sheets, pillows, pillow cases, blankets, iron and ironing board, toiletries, towels, hangers, laundry detergent and laundry basket. (Many students find that space in the rooms is limited and two peoples’ belongings will completely fill the room. Students are cautioned to pack wisely.)
