Find out about room swaps and transfers

If you find that your current accommodation doesn't suit you well, you can apply to swap or transfer rooms.

A room swap is where you find another student who would like to exchange rooms with you. Room swaps are open to all Newcastle University students who hold an offer or a contract in university-owned or managed partnership accommodation. Swaps are most often agreed at the beginning or even before the start of the academic year.

A room transfer is where you apply to be allocated to a different room in our accommodation that is currently empty. Applications are usually available from November onwards and are processed on first come first served basis.

Students living in managed partnership accommodation can only transfer rooms if another student moves into theirs. The accommodation team will assist you with this but we cannot guarantee that a replacement tenant will be found in order for the transfer to take place.

All room swaps and transfers are subject to availability.
