dwelling woes (5)

22 year old college student here.

Lately I've been agonizing over my current apartment situation. Over a month ago I set out to find a new apartment for myself near my University. I originally approached a friend of mine and asked if he was interested in sharing a two bedroom. At the time he said that that wouldn't really be a possibility, that he had accommodations elsewhere. This wasn't really a problem, I just decided to look for a one bedroom. After a while of searching I decided on a single bedroom apartment and signed a lease approximately a month ago that I was pretty happy with. Now, with just a week and a half until I'm supposed to move in and start paying rent, he asked me if I had already signed a lease. Explaining that I had he then asked if I would be willing to move up to a 2 bedroom apartment in the same complex, I'm not even sure if this is possible. I want to help him out as he's my friend but quite frankly I don't want to have to go through the trouble with my move in date less than two weeks away, and me not even being sure if such a changeup is a possibility.

I guess my question is sortof twofold. Whether or not I could even move up to a larger apartment in the same complex and, perhaps more importantly, whether I should really even try. He's my friend and I would feel awful about not helping but I put alot of effort into finding my apartment and don't want to change now. Also, I've got to have a place to live by the 1st as I'm taking classes, have a campus job and have nowhere else to go.

I'm just confused as to what to do. I feel sorry for my friend but I don't want to throw away all my efforts and risk getting in trouble with regard to my housing situation.

I'd say keep what you have.
You gave your friend the chance to look with you, and he turned it down.
I would stick with the one bedroom, honestly. It's too much of a hassle to switch, especially this late in the game, and it's really not a good idea to disrupt all your set plans.
Tell you friend sorry, but no, and offer to help him find another place if you really feel bad.
But don't disrupt your work because he needs help.

I hate friends who change plans at the last minute and expect you to comply.

Your friend's a retard. Don't risk your home for him.

you should stay with what you got and if he wants to get something with you when your lease is up then cool. but if you already put your name on the lease you have to think about your credibility. is your friend worth possibly damaging your credibility?
