    Hi, I got an unconditional offer for Literature at Manchester University, which I firmed back in May. However, I haven't received any letter or email regarding course dates, or anything like that, which my friends who are going to different unis have received. I am REALLY starting to worry because I still haven't applied for accommodation since I don't have/don't know how to find my university ID number, which you need to apply for accommodation. We rang the university (trying to talk to someone who would know about accommodation) and were redirected to the English Literature department because they asked for my course code, who told us 'centre' hasn't sent anything out yet..? So I want to know am I the only one who hasn't applied for accommodation at Manchester and if so HOW DO I APPLY OR IS IT TOO LATE??? Thank you in advance

    Manchester university is massive and it sounds like they have sent you on a bit of a goose chase on the phone.

    I would urge you to phone student services and voice your concerns.

    man, it's so hard to get accommodation of your preference this late, just pray and hope for the best. also call the uni.

    I emailed the uni for my ID to apply for accommodation months ago, they gave it to me and I have my accommodation offer now... Just do the same email them and provide your ucas ID, name and date of birth and they'll get back to you
