Hi, basically I've got University of Kent as my firm choice and Middlesex as my insurance, but if I go to Kent I will be staying at home (so obviously havn't applied for accomodation) and will need accomodation if I go to Middlesex. Do I still need to apply for accomodation for Middlesex?
Yes. Some universities guarantee accommodation for all new undergrads, including insurance applicants, but some only give accommodation to insurance applicants if they have enough places. Either way, if you want to have a chance of getting accommodation at Middlesex, should you end up going there, then you need to apply for accommodation.
