    Hiiiiiiiiii reading all these posts has made me even more excited about going to Winchester, if that's even possible lol! It's my firm choice, and I'm hoping to study Creative Writing, which seems to be quite popular on here too just done my housing application, put Queens Road as my first choice. I got really confused by the 'Quiet/Moderately Quiet' thing as well, not sure what the difference is tbh, sooooo I just chose moderately quiet :')
    I'm getting really excited now nervous too, and a bit daunted, but excited!!!

    Wooooooo Creative Writing rocks! Hehe :P what kind of stuff do you like to write?

    But awh, don't worry, I'm sure you're not the only one who picked quiet and Queens Road is so compact, you probably won't be far from people who chose moderately quiet at all if you're really worried, you could always try ringing the housing people and asking them to change it

    Yepp! That's what I'm worried about, being in quiet accommodation...is that like the choice for us social recluses?! Ahaha.
    I guess I'm being silly, just panicking about everything and I should chill. CHILL.
    I just changed to quiet

    Edit: Oh, say if I wanted to change courses a little (from creative writing and journalism studies to just creative writing) how easy would it be to do, and does anyone know who to to actually contact? I assume that course enquires is just for pre-applicants?

    >_> Never mind. Apparently I have to go to Winchester and get a registry form T___T

    I literally just write whatever comes to mind! I haven't had much time for it of lately seeing as I've got exams...looming over me. But I'm hoping to carry on with some short stories I've started beforehand. My last one, this will sound morbid I guess, was about the last man alive on earth and how he was coping with life. Or not. What about you?

    Ahaha, well, I worried enough and got it changed, so now I'm hopefully in Queens Road - Self Catered - Moderately Quiet. Yipee!

    I've applied for west downs en suite so fingers crossed!
    Let's just hope Winchester helps me move on my stand up career a bit. Maybe it'll just be a few more years of writing and limited shows. :')

    It's not that I was upset :') I just decided that it sounded slightly less sociable? Obviously you live there, I've no idea what it's like!

    Oh, well I'm sure it'll work out. It seems pretty possible tbh.

    Doesn't mean you can't be sociable in general though, with societies and whatnot

    Depends on how long it's been since you accepted Winchester as your firm choice. It takes a couple working days for your details to go on their system, so you may have to wait a bit before applying for housing! Keep trying obviously. Happened to me though, I accepted Winchester on a Friday and couldn't apply for housing until the Monday!

    Monday 2nd April was the day housing applications were being taken. I firmed it back a couple of months ago lol. I have tried to register but keep getting rejected. Oh well, I will ring up on Tuesday!

    Thanks

    You're supposed to have had a letter of correspondence from the uni, it has it on there!

    Failing the letter, you can ring reception (01962 841515), they'll ask for your name, date of birth and address. When they've confirmed this they'll then ask for your email address, and they'll send it over for you It takes about 5 minutes, if that, and it's done. Hope this helps.
