I was given an unconditional offer which I firmly accepted a long time ago. I applied for accommodation only a few days after it opened. I ranked the 4 halls that I could pick from. I get allocated Lady Spencer Churchill which is off the main campus. This was my least favorite choice as I really don't want a catered hall as I am vegetarian and quite fussy with eating. Although my course is at the Headington campus I really really don't want to live there :/ . Is there any way I could change my accommodation assigned?

You need to look at their allocation policy. Time of application sometimes makes a difference and other times it does not.
Talk to them and ask about a waiting list or any other ways such as a swap. You can point out when you applied, but if they dont take it into account then that has no bearing. . Sometimes they release in tranches and normally unis let you swap with another student. Ask them nicely.

Hi there,

For more information on hall allocations and swaps email [email protected] and they should be able to answer all you accommodation related questions.

Hope this helps,
