    Not sure if it's the same for all uni's, but at mine this happened for a few of my friends. They rang up accommodation and just paid an extra week's rent and moved in early

    If UCAS says that, it's not necessarily right-in fact in this case it seems to be wrong http://www.mmu.ac.uk/about/termdates/

    I didn't realise they were allowed to do that though, I thought they had to provide accommodation for all first years for the whole time?!

    This, quite often UCAS will state the first of whatever month your course starts on. I'm fairly certain Manchester's term doesn't start until the 17th September this year.

    ucas just puts the 1st september as a starting date by default and most unis dont bother changing it, the correct starting date will be on the man met website
