    Well as the title suggests I applied to Cardiff through clearing, and found out today that I can't be allocated halls and to turn up "on the 27th or 28th" to either go straight into halls or stay in a hotel for an undefined amount of time...

    Three problems- a) Freshers starts on the 18th, and I do not fancy missing out on those drunken shenanigans b)Course inductions start on 26th for most courses and c) I can't be arsed with the hassle.

    Judging by the email and how many courses Cardiff advertised through clearing, I imagine that it was sent to a fair few people, a couple of which I have spoken too today. Basically what I want to do is sort a big house (7 or 8 bedroom) in a good location (Column Road or surrounding streets to be close to town, most of the uni buildings and the SU) and am looking to see what the uptake would be. These are examples of what our money would rent privately-pretty sweet, double bedrooms, all nicely kitted out etc... it's not quite halls but i'm sure with the location it won't matter a great deal!

    It's the sort of thing that I'm hoping to sort within the next week so we can get moving dates and stuff sorted, and I'm in Gloucestershire so I'm happy to do a lot of the legwork- I'm probably only 45 minutes away from the town centre.

    So yeah just looking for other clearing freshers who want to get involved, either comment or PM me for more details.

    Hey guys,

    I got into Cardiff through clearing, and everyone who lived in my halls also got in through clearing Don't worry! We all lived in Uni halls, and there were actually empty rooms so you should all get a place in accommodation
