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.
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 must complete a short application to request a transfer.
The application is open from 12 noon on Friday to 9 am on Monday each week. You must be up to date with your rent payments to be eligible to transfer rooms.

If we can offer you a room transfer, we will send you an offer email by 5pm on Wednesday. The deadline to accept the offer is 5pm the next day (Thursday). You will need to move on the Saturday. We will charge an administrative cost of £45 to your account.
If we cannot offer you a room transfer, we will notify you on Wednesday and invite you to re-apply in the next round of applications.
