It's stupidly close already. 29 takes you to college in 10 minutes flat.

So I got an offer for College Hall, cant afford it so I need to swap it with someone. I was looking to move into Ramsay but I guess I cant be too picky at this point. I need to figure this out now so quick replies would be appreciated. Thanks

Hey. Lets talk. I've just got an offer for Ramsay and College was my second choice (Connaught first). I can't guarantee anything just yet but I'm certainly up to discuss it.

its a single, i called ucl and they said that swapping is possible but you have to talk to the who manage the intercollegiate halls, so i spoke them and they said something about the swap being finalized before the 1st of Sept.

Odd, I just phoned UCL and the guy said you have to wait until 3 weeks into term, then something about a list you have to sign up to. Regardless, this sounds much better. I don't want to move in, meet people, then move out...

Yea true. Anyway ive got 4 days until this offers expires or whatever, gives us some time to think about this, I think the best thing do to would be to go there personally, if your nearby that is.

Sorry man. They won't change it. I have to wait till 3 weeks after term before they will consider swapping. Intercollegiate halls such as College obviously have a different rule. I hope you are able to find someone else who can swap.

Yea i called them to, they said its the same for intercollegiate halls as well, so If I wanted to swap from College Hall to Ramsay id have to put my name on the list and all that, then i can swap in 3-4 weeks. Is there anyway we can swap before term starts?

Hi,

I have been offered a room at Frances Gardner house for £168 a week. It's way out of my price range and would like to know if it is possible to switch with anybody. I have already called UCL accommodation who have been very unhelpful and said there is no way to switch, so if you cannot afford it don't come here. Wanting to switch to anywhere relatively near UCL which is cheaper.

Thanks

well, tbh its true, i know your asking for help, but one would think, to ask parents for help? They clearly have sufficient money if you get NO grant.
