  • In the first few weeks of the term, many rooms appear to be available but they are in fact contracted to a student who has arranged a late arrival. 

Due to the numbers of requests at the start of the session, it is unlikely that we will be able to arrange all requests immediately. Where possible, we will try to coordinate moves as quickly as possible.

The transfer list will operate in the following priority order:- 

  • Date of application priority
  • Medical Need/Disability 

You will need to complete:  In-House - Transfer Request Form

Please be advised that there is a £50.00 administration charge for all successful transfers. 

  • Please check emails regularly. Any updates will be sent to your university email.
  • Please ensure to give as much information as possible for your request in order to offer you the best alternative.
  • The request must be renewed every 14 days or the request will expire.
  • After the offer is made, you will have 3 days to accept it before it is cancelled. 
  • All transfer/room move requests if successful will be charged a £50.00 administration fee.
  • A transfer may not be considered if there is any outstanding debt.
