    Hi, I'm a little confused about accommodation and wondered if anyone could help. Royal Holloway is my insurance choice, so does that mean that I can't apply for accommodation unless I don't get into my firm choice? Thanks

    I'm fairly sure you can't apply for accommodation at RHUL unless you've firmed it, so, you're right you can't apply until after results day (assuming you don't get into your firm - which I'm sure you will!)

    Hey guys! So I just applied for accommodation this morning :L I got reid as first choice and founders as second and then of course all of the modern ones, KW last. When around do you think we hear about room allocation? and what chance is there of me getting near my top choices..?

    Thanks
    Are you conditional or unconditional?
    If you're unconditional I imagine your chances of getting your top choices are fairly high, though people have been applying for accommodation for a long time now so you may be towards the bottom of the pile of unconditionals, so to speak.

    In terms of conditional - I suppose it depends where's popular this year as to your likelihood, again, people have been applying for a good while now and it's first come first served but it depends on demand for particular accommodations!

    Thankyou! I was a tad unsure, so you've cleared it up nicely

    They have no way of checking. Apart from kingswood 1 and founders you don't have to go anywhere near security to get to your room.

    There probably would be space, but you'd be better off putting the ps3 and xbox under the desk. Or in a cupboard, so you actually do work instead of goofing about :P

    Lol well I am a little too old for goofing about (if it's possible to be too old), but I am sure it will be something I can try to master a long with the art of procrastination! :0)

    Hi guys, I am coming for Entrepreneurship Msc. this Sept, any one for the same course?

    Also, does any one have any experience with postgrad halls? I just applied on May 20, do you think it is early enough to receive a room at Victorian houses? Does RHUL indeed let home/EU students know only in July about room offers? I am worried if I don't get the preferred one, there won't be much time to look for private shares.

    What are the best places to look for private accommodation with RHUL students? House Search doesn't have many offers.

    Any of your advices are appreciated. Cheers!

    I'm in Reid this year, and my friend has similar equipment and there is plenty of room. The rooms are MASSIVE

    I had the same problem, you should contact RHUL. I waited for few days and it was OK again...:-) Are you an under or postgrad student?
