I've just received an offer of a single room in Rosebery. But, actually, I wanna live in Northumberland, for I wish to live a little closer to the school. So, I wonder anyone here, who holds the offer of Northumberland, is willing to exchange to Rosebery. If you are interested, just PM me. . If you have any question, you can post in the following.

PS. High Holborn is fine as well...

I don't have an offer, but are you asking for a single room in Northumberland? Because undergrads always share.

NH is mainly shared with post grads getting the singles.

Hmm, yep, I want a single one. But, if there is none available, twin room is okay for me.

Just FYI, Northumberland singles are only closed to FIRST YEAR undergraduates. That means second and third year undergraduates can be allocated them, as well as postgraduates. But since second and third years often don't get student accommodation since they aren't guaranteed by LSE, your friend must be fairly lucky then (but not lucky enough to sidestep the rules!)

Hardly anyone gets a single, and it's usually as they may have told them that they have a medical condition or some reason why they cannot share. (UNDERGRADS THAT IS)
