Hi! I've been accepted at Darwin and have been allocated to a room at Frank Young House, which was not one of my preferred options. Because of COVID concerns, I wanted to stay in an ensuite room, but FYH does not have any. Moreover, I've been allocated to one of the most expensive rooms at FYH.

Can anybody who has stayed or is staying at FYH please tell me whether they've had a good experience or not? In addition, how likely is it for my room allocation to be changed if I ask the Accommodation Manager?

Thank you!

It's very normal (at every university) to be allocated a room that isn't of your preference. If there are financial concerns with you being able to afford FYH, then speak to the Accommodation Manager. Otherwise, they will have a long list of students wanting to change rooms just because they prefer a different one. But without much further reasoning the answer tends to be a no, in my experience. Your best bet would be moving into FYH and then seeing if anyone at the college is willing to swap with you.
