My roommate genuinely scares me and I was denied a room transfer. What can I do?

Keep pressing the issue with housing, contact the hall director and the head of campus housing. Stay in contact with your RA, as of now they view this as the 2 of you just not getting along.

This may or may not achieve the desired outcome but you could try saying something like, “Hey man, we have a different sense of humor and a lot of your jokes are making me uneasy. I’ve already requested to change rooms, so if you could hold back until I’m out of here I’d appreciate it.“Hopefully, he either plays along or it will make things awkward and he’ll stop anyways. If he gets all pissy tell him you have reported any specifics but if he doesn’t stop you’ll report the suicide and bomb jokes which will shut him up if it’s nothing more than dark humor.
