One cool feature within LifeX is the ability to swap rooms with members in other cities for a small holiday. For example, are you interested in visiting Paris, meeting other members there, and still feel at home? Then take advantage of this opportunity. 

How it works: join the #roomswaps channel on Slack, where you can connect with LifeX members from other cities. You can both post your interest and see what other members are looking for. Hopefully there is a match of interest. From here, it is up to you both to organise the exchange yourselves, and ensure both of your respective housemates are okay with it before going through with it.

No unsold rooms can be used for this exchange. Ie. You must either swap with someone renting a room elsewhere, or take over a room of someone who has travelled for the time you wish to visit. You cannot ask to stay in a vacant room, as cleaning for this room would not be paid for or scheduled.

Room liabilities: You are liable for the room you borrow, meaning if something breaks or gets extremely messy, then you will be responsible for paying for the damages. You are also responsible for making sure the key is left in the room upon your departure.
