Hey!

You guys should be receiving accommodation offers in the next week or so If you have a major problem with your accommodation offer, like you can't afford it or want to be in a single gender block, then you can phone up the accommodation office and they'll see how they can help Don't worry though guys, a lot of people are still waiting on accommodation offers so you're not alone and it'll all get sorted soon!

Hi! What happens if you've accepted accommodation, and realised it wasn't single-gender which you wanted? Can it be changed once I've accepted or not?

Hey,
I just did some research and came across this on the Kent Accommodation FAQs. The page states:

"Due to the heavy demand at the start of the academic year for University accommodation, we regret that applications for room changes are not accepted until early November. Any vacant rooms arising before this date will be offered to any suitable applicants not living on campus, who still need University Accommodation. Any student wishing to apply for a room change must complete the relevant form available at the Accommodation Office Reception Desk in Tanglewood in November.

Please also note that informal exchanges of rooms are not permitted and may result in fines to the accounts of the persons involved.

Room changes in November are not automatically granted, usually due to a lack of suitable vacant rooms, and requests from students living off-campus will still be given priority over room change requests for any vacant rooms.

Please note that there is a charge of £50 to cover the cost of administration and cleaning, once a transfer has been officially agreed, arranged and completed."

I would definitely recommend that you contact the accommodation's team still just to double check and so you can make them aware of your circumstances which will be filed. (Tel: +44 (0)1227 766660)

I hope this helps.
Do let me know if you require further assistance.

Phil

Hi there!
If you're worried about any of the financial side of things then I'd recommend contacting the University's accommodation team and also the Income office as they may have some systems in place to help students financially I'll leave the links to their contact pages below.
Income office (scroll down and their contact info is on the right hand side); https://www.kent.ac.uk/finance-stude...cts/index.html

Accommodation Office; https://www.kent.ac.uk/accommodation...mmodation.html

Just so you know, they say this every year, but I've seen people switch accomodations around this time last year too. If you have a good reason you're unhappy or are up to arguing a bit they will actually do it sooner too
