    My flatmates make a lot of noise and a lot of mess, we don't really get along and I don't wanna live with them anymore - these guys are too wild for me! I don't really care about making friends with my flatmates - I'd just like somewhere quiet where no one bothers anyone.
    My uni might let me transfer rooms but might I end up swapping with someone who moved for the same reasons as I did?

    Do you know of anyone who changed rooms? Were they happy with where they got put?

    well swapping rooms is a gamble just like being allocated in the first place... it's possible someone has just dropped out through no fault of their flatmates... but anyone leaving a flat is leaving for a reason so I think arranging your own swap is better as you can try and figure out their reasons (some people will leave because their flat is too quiet but horrible flatmates are more common reasons!) so you are taking a risk that you may even get someone worse

    Which uni are you in? I left my flat so now it'll be open for someone else to take. My university (and maybe others) don't let people swap for a few weeks, though.

    Transferred flats, speaking from a different room right now - they let me transfer pretty quickly (got my application in early) and put me in a pretty good place like I asked for. Hopefully you will have the same success.
