You should be able to use the " /part " command when in the room to leave it.

Room actions

Enter an existing HipChat room 
(HipChat web app only)
/join room-name/join IT Team
Leave the room you're currently in/part 
Change the topic of the room you're currently in/topic new-topic/topic All things IT

To disable your account, you'll want to go to Once it's been disabled, you should be able to sign up for the proper team (either by creating a new one by going to or by getting an invite from your existing group.

I get a 404 error when I go to the deactivate page.

404 when you go to either link

Please copy/paste the links, the Community website seems to have issues with links not starting with http(s). It thinks they are relative links.
