Move to a new room or residence

We know how important it is to be happy about where you live, and we want to make sure you have a great experience living in our university accommodation. You can apply to move rooms or seek support from your Residential Life team.

Get support

We understand that you may feel unhappy in your room but want to assure you that there is support and help available. Speak to the team at your Student Support Centre if you are finding it hard to settle in.

Request a transfer

You can apply for a transfer by logging into the accommodation portal and selecting 'Apply for a room transfer' from the menu bar. You will need to complete a short application to request a transfer. The application will be open from 9am Friday to 9am Monday each week.   

What happens next?

If we are able to offer you a room transfer, you will receive an offer email on Wednesday. The deadline to accept the offer will be Thursday at 5pm and you will need to move on the Saturday.  An administrative cost of £45 will be charged to your account. 

If we are unable to offer you a room transfer, you will be notified on Wednesday and invited to re-apply in the next round of applications. 

Please remember that we only have a limited number of available rooms, and that your Residential Life Team are here 24/7 to support you with any difficulties you are experiencing.
