When can I swap my room?
From October we start taking requests for swaps. Once all the forms have been completed and sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and the room swap has been authorised by the allocations team, we will confirm your swap date.
Can I swap into a room that's currently empty?
No, vacant rooms are reserved for students who don't yet live in residences.
I am a KAAS recipient, can I swap my room?
Yes, as long as your "swap partner" is also a recipient of KAAS.
How can I find a "swap partner"?
There are many ways for you to find student who wish to swap their room. Our Residences Facebook groups are the easiest way to connect with other residents. The Find a Flatmate Facebook managed by Advice & Guidance group hosts King’s students looking for halls contracts which they would like to take over. Also, The Student Room has a large following from KCL.

What if I'm in intercollegiate halls?
Unfortunately we cannot offer room swaps for these residences as your agreement is with a different provider. If both of you live in a hall with the same provider, the local reception staff will be able to tell you if and how you can swap.
Can I swap my room with a student not current in residences?
No, you'd need to arrange a room transfer instead.
Can I swap my room with an undergraduate if I'm a postgraduate?
No, as rooms are allocated based on student classification (Foundation/UG/PG).
I have signed a 40-week contract, can I swap with someone on a 51-week contract?
No, you will need to find a "swap partner" on the same contract length.
I am withdrawing from College, do I need to find a replacement for my room?
No, as you are terminating your study you are not required to find a replacement for your room. Please ensure you've completed a Notification of Withdrawal from College as mentioned above and notify us on email@example.com.
