Accommodation Watch

Hi, I have accepted my offer as I didn't want to end up with no accommodation. But I have since been to the university and I really don't feel comfortable with the accommodation I have been given.

I called up and they said I can apply for a room move in October but it is unlikely.
I don't want to call up again as I was on hold for ages and obviously that costs money.

So I thought I would ask on here. If I put in a new application for accommodation would it go through? Or if I withdrew this application would I then be able to submit a new one?

I really am not happy with the accommodation I got so I am desperate to change.

Many thanks

Email is easy to communicate with universities. I would assume that as you have accepted their offer they will be less likely to give you another one. You run the risk of having no accommodation if you withdraw from the one you have. It may be worth looking into seeing what private student accommodation is remaining that might be slightly better (but more expensive)

Room moves are charged a fee too, which will only be waived in certain circumstances. People do swap through the year, but it's usually a little later in the year. Hox Park, The Pad, and The Podium offer accom on Egham hill, which is 5ish minutes from Founders, but at a significantly higher price than the most expensive of RHUL's accom.

Which accom did you get accepted into?
