Leaving early or swapping rooms

We hope that you'll stay in your room until the end of your contract, but we know that circumstances can change.

2 - Swapping between rooms or halls

Room and hall swaps are possible but you need to find somebody to exchange room with, get authorisation and complete the necessary paperwork before you swap.

Swaps are not permitted during the first two weeks of the Michaelmas Term, and are only available until 22 April  for each current academic year. 

  • Charges - A £50 admin charge applies to each student involved in the swap. 
  • Signatures -  You must obtain the required signatures and return a copy of the completed form to the Residential Services Office (see "How to contact us" on the left).
  • Deposit - Your deposit will be transferred with you to the new room or residence (unless you move to a non-LSE residence, in which case it will be returned normally within 28 days from moving out).
  • Paperwork - Ensure that a new Licence Agreement is made out and any other paperwork is completed eg room inventory or next of kin form.
