You may be able to find another student who will exchange (swap) accommodation with you.
Be aware of these rules:
- You can usually only swap with someone of the same gender.
- It does not count as a swap if one of you is withdrawing from the University or leaving University accommodation.
- Undergraduates are not able to swap with postgraduates.
Finding a swap
We can help find a suitable swap by filling in a Room Transfer and Swaps form (usually available from early October). Upon reviewing all requests, we may match your preferences with another student who wishes to move room and/or residence. If we identify a suitable room, we will arrange for you both to share your contact information so that you can view each person’s current room.
Arranging the swap
If you decide that you wish to proceed with the room swap, you should both get in touch with us via email@example.com to confirm that you want to swap, and providing a date that you want to move. You will be required to agree and accept new contract terms before exchanging keys and agree to ensure the room is clean for the new person to move in to.
Students who move or swap rooms will each be charged a £50 administration fee, which will be added to your residence account.
