    you go to the accomodation office and they will put you on a waiting list and let you know when another room becomes available.

    will they ask me why i want to swap rooms? If so what is a good enough answer? my real reason is because i just want to be more near to a friend who is in teh other flat as i feel a bit lonely with the people i am at the moment

    ive no experience of this personally so i dont know, but i know of others who moved halls because they weren't happy in their original halls. The only thing is they may not be able to guarentee you a room in your preferred halls

    I know someone who's moved halls twice, because he didn't like his flatmates the first two times. That was accepted as a good enough reason both times, but he didn't have a say in what halls he was moved to (probably hence the second move).
