Rant about Kings Accomodation TeamWatch
But Kings refuses to take any of this into account and won't let people swap until october - but even though i have someone willing to swap with me, how do i know they'll still want to switch in october, after they've already settled in and might fall in love with their accomodation? how do i know i won't be stuck with a room i can't afford? kings wont even let me switch into a cheaper room in my own accomodation, despite the fact i also found someone who was willing to do so.
worst of all, some people don't even get accommodation whatsoever and kings tells us so late that most decent, semi-affordable housing in central london or its surrounding areas is taken up. I only just found a decent room today (a spare room in a flat ) that is affordable and won't impoverish me, but its a 50 minute to 1 hour train commute every day. and now im also worried about being isolated and not meeting anyone
and ultimately, i might not go to kings at all if i cant find private housing and ill have to wait a year and reapply to other schools and hope they'll take me. there's my rant and if any of you have advice, itd be much appreciated

i just wish someone at kings would see this and realize how much they need to get their act together. most universities aren't THIS INFLEXIBLE..
