When can I swap my room?
From October we start taking requests for swaps. Once all the forms have been completed and sent to email@example.com 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 students who wish to swap their rooms. Our Residences Facebook groups are one way to connect with other residents, but the KCL Flatmate Finder Hub, managed by the Advice Services, also connects King’s students looking for halls contracts to take over. You may wish to try The Student Room too, which 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
