    Hi, if you have a 31 week contract, does this mean you have to leave during holidays e.g Christmas, and take all your belongings out and then move back in. How does it work?
    Thanks
    Yes you will have to take all your belongings with you at the end of the term. As the rooms may be used as accomodation for Conferences and other events. I heard it is a hassle to move out.

    Hi guys, just a quick question, do any of you know if I'm right in thinking that the faster we apply for accomodation, the more likely we are to get our first choice?

    I'd preferably wait until the visit day on the 3rd of April to have a look around, but if my first choice (im quite certain I'll pick Saunders) will be full by then, then I'd rather apply sooner than later!

    Please let me know if you know if that's the case? Thanks and see you all this fall hopefully

    It depends where you stay, I'm pretty sure your student loan will not cover you staying at High Holborn!, but staying somewhere else on a 31 week contract, single room should be fine and I think your loan should be sufficient.....but remember food cost ect need to be considered......so it's hard. The UK maintenance loan is 7.5K I think, so it probably won't be enough.

    ok thanks, is it a 31 week contract that people living in the uk do? so then that just covers term time which is what i would want

    The length of the contract depends on the specific hall. Rosebery and Carr-Saunders for example, offer a 31 week contract meaning you can only use the room and keep your belongings there during term time and not over Christmas, Easter or Summer holidays.

    "LSE accommodation is allocated on a random basis within quotas set out for each hall."

    thats quoted from the website

    want to go to a social hall, i applied to: 1) carr-saunders 2) rosebery 3) high holborn
    for those who want more information on roseberry and carr-saunders i would advice these two threads from last year - i found them really useful.
