Changing Halls Watch
The university does not allow people to transfer within university accommodation for 4 weeks due to the huge number of people wishing to change at first. If you do come out of the Residence Contract there is a low possibility you can move straight to private as the University will continue to charge you, even if you are not living there, unless they find someone to fill your room. This is because you signed a contract and the university will otherwise be at a loss.
I have heard of people leaving and getting back money from accommodation as they were only there a short amount of time (e.g. they paid the two thousand for a week) but that is from people who left the university completely.
I would advise you to look into it if the situation worsens or if you can financially manage to swap accommodation or try your best to talk to your Residence Mentor about these problems you're having. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
Has anyone had experience of changing hall accommodation? What if you've got a place in a flat in Endcliffe and one of your flatmates has already started to bully you AND you've found an ideal opening in another, similar, flat with a friend - what are the chances of the University doing the sensible thing and letting you simply swap rooms? I plan to phone them in the morning but I'm wondering if anyone's got any insight into this. Thanks.
