    Thanks for your warm response
    I also hope what you said is true, otherwise it is hard to meet conditional offer holders' first choice because the room which they want to get will be allocated to unconditional offer holders.

    BTW, nice to meet u!
    Most people I know got their first choice and the vast majority were straight out of school.

    Also, not going to be many unconditionals in your year, gap years probably looked a lot less appealing at 18k a go in extra fees...

    No worries - the accommodation office said it's a first come first serve basis, so conditional offer holders just have to apply as soon as possible and hope for the best. Have you sent your application off?

    It's nice to meet you also
    yeah just sent my application last week, but now I dont get any reply meybe because of the Easter vacation. I also read the accommodation allocation policy, and the information in Uni website is not very clear. Fortunately I find this forums and get more information I need

    I also plan straight out of school when I'm sophomore..but this year I'm a international freshman (undergraduate)...and it will be the first time that I go to UK, so not be familiar with this country.For me, I think living school is the best choice in the freshman year

    I meant as in they're straight out of what you think of as High School.

    If you use language that Americanised at uni expect some serious banter, so here's some tips.

    School (UK)=High School (US)

    Uni (UK)=School/College (US)

    Fresher (UK)=Freshman (US). Please don't say Freshman, people will laugh at you.

    Second Year (UK)=Sophomore (US). If you say Sophomore a lot of people won't know what you mean.

    Hope this helps And it is indeed best to live in halls during first year in my opinion. PM if you want to know anything about Leicester.

    No unconditional offer holders, ie. school class of 2011. If you're conditional, so doing your A levels in a couple of months, then you will hear about what accommodation you've got once you've confirmed your place (by meeting your offer conditions in August) and then get sent an accommodation offer soon afterwards. For a lot of people the accommodation offer, address etc. is when it all starts to seem real.

    Ohhh, so I won't find out until I've actually got into the Uni? And the people that have offers for accommodating right now are those with unconditional offers? Okay Cheeeeeers

    Cool Yeah, I'm super excited. I've been at Durham for the last three years, and although I love it there, I'm looking forward to being somewhere a bit bigger! (and I'm from London, so being a bit closer to home will be nice too).

    Sorry if this has already been answered, but I've firmed Leicester and am applying for accommodation, but I'm unsure of two different accommodation types in John Foster.

    What's the difference between a Premium Plus Ensuite Room and Premium Plus Flat? I was thinking of going for ensuite, but I just want to find out what premium plus flat is before I confirm it.

    Premium plus are, majoratitively, in the JoFo Pavillions (covered in wood, blue and green, like Premier Inn inside. If you've been on an open day you've seen them). Essentially Prem+ have a full size room as their ensuite, not just a retrofitted pod; the room itself is likely to be a bit bigger and (in JoFo) you'll be in a 'cluster' round the kitchen rather than along a corridor. At JoFo Premium rooms are in The Coppice which is mainly gap year students and all self catered.

    Premium has a retrofitted pod bathroom but is different to standard as it has recently been refurbished (new furniture, carpets, kitchen stuff etc.).

    Hope this helps.


    I've lost track of how many times I've answered that, the uni really should explain the difference better,
