    Sorry to break the chain, but i'm insuring Sheffield - it was between Newcastle and Sheffield and then Sheffield gave me a lower offer, so it seems logical! Love the city and the university though, I spend a lot of time there already

    Me Hopefully going to apply for an ensuite there. Since I've got an unconditional, I think I'm right in saying that I'll be amongst the first to be allocated a room, so crossing my fingers I'll get it!

    Me too! I'm sure I read somewhere that you get allocated accommodation first if you have an unconditional, but I might just be making that up, haha. I hope so, anyway

    apparently rooms are not allocated on a first-come, first-served basis anyway. so there's no need to rush anything.
