I want to switch my uni room because I got put into the international block because of a glitch saying I'm an international student on the accommodation website. Is this a valid reason? Main reason is that all my flat mates are always quiet and keeping to themselves (I've tried asking them to do stuff but they decline or get out of it all the time, and that's if I even do see them) so I feel like a couple more weeks of this will make me want to bash my head against the wall

Sorry do not know the answer to your question per se but if rooms are available I would imagine saying you do not get on with the others in your flat is good enough reason. Did not know there was such a thing as an international block. Would you mind telling me which university this is ?

A lot of my friends moved flats in first year because they were uncomfortable or didn't get on with their flat - if they have room (which they should as less freshers due to covid) they should be able to transfer you depending on their restrictions

Uni of leeds, IQ leeds. From what I've heard the block I'm in is international and it seems to be correct from what I've seen

IQ Leeds is a private student housing. They do not worry about trying to mix internationals with locals. Internationals tend to prefer certain types / locations of residences. Internationals will mostly go for ensuite at least in first year. So if there has been mainly internationals applying for accommodation in that complex all flats are likely to have mainly internationals. In Uni of Manchester for example internationals tend to apply to Uni residences closer to city and Uni. Locals prefer Fallowfield which is 15 min by bus.

Anyway now you are there just ask. If you could find a location where there are more locals ask specifically for that. Saying specifically that you wish to be in a residence that has more action is fine. Google reviews may help. If they have a room vacant somewhere else they should accommodate your request.
