    I had the same problem today! Email them and they'll reset your account - service was surprisingly quick (I'm still angry at their system as a whole tho haha, what's the point of giving us all the infomation of the residences online if we don't get a choice?!)

    OK thanks I have emailed them I tried calling earlier but couldn't get through and figured emailing would take them longer so that is surprising you heard back so fast. I thought that as well! I wanted GDSA cos its the cheapest ensuite, and now if I apply for ensuite I will either have to pay tons or be placed far away, with a slim chance of actually getting GDSA!

    How do we apply for Intercollegiate Halls? Do we apply to them through the portal the same as if we were applying to the King's residences, also do we get to choose what Intercollegiate Hall we want or is it chosen at random like King's accommodation
    Yup its through the KCL portal. If you choose the intercollegiate option they give you preference for these halls over the kings halls, but you don't get to choose which intercollegiate you get assigned to.

    Hey guys,I am a Postgraduate student at King's who is looking to give up my studio apartment in a private hall at Southwark, (10 mins walk from Waterloo and Guy's campus) by May and was wondering if anyone would be interested in taking up my tenancy which ends by the 2nd of September this year. Please pm me if interested. Hope to hear back from someone soon!
    Im interested. It would be great if I can see more photos of the studio.
    Please pm me if you got it. Thanks

    your details will be -
    username: your king's student ID (which is a 7 digit number)
    password: your date of birth in the format DD/MM/YYYY (slashes included)

    if it doesn't work then i'd try emailing them!

    so last year i applied for accommodation through king's and was able to select my 5 top choices. i then deferred until this year, and now i see that you're not allowed to choose your accommodation anymore. i think that's pretty stupid, given that there are halls in different areas of london (and travel zones), meaning that lots of people will have longer and more expensive commutes because they weren't allowed to select preferences based on their campus location! and all my research into the different halls is useless since they will allocate them completely randomly, basically. (i'm annoyed at king's, can you tell?)

    Hi, I completely agree! I found this out today and I am very angry (and worried) because there is now a good chance of getting halls on completely the other side of London to where I wish to study! + It means that all my research into accommodation was a waste of time! I think it an extremely stupid idea / very lazy of them. I can't seem to see their logic in doing this

    Hi Guys,
    I lived in Wolfson House for a year, and Great Dover Street for 2 weeks.
    I've also spent some time in Stamford Street.

    If you have any questions just let me know, especially about Wolfson.
