Want to swap rooms or leave halls?

Changing rooms

We only consider a request for a room move if there are extenuating circumstances which support it. If you would like to swap rooms, please contact your Hall Manager in the first instance so you can discuss the reasons for a room move with them. Please be aware that room moves will only be approved in exceptional circumstances. 


To change rooms, there's an administration fee of £25 that you'll need to pay before you move. You will have to sign a new letting agreement to replace your existing one and we'll arrange a date for you to move. When you've moved, we'll check your old room for damage. If your fees in your new hall are less than you have been paying, we'll refund the difference into your bank account.

Leaving halls 

When we can release you from your contract

Parking refunds for residents who withdraw from their contracts

The parking permit is for the duration of your tenancy agreement and is non-refundable whilst you are a registered student at the University. In the event of you withdrawing from University, the costs of your car parking permit charge will be calculated on the same basis as the cost of withdrawing from your contract.
