    I was wondering whether it would be possible to book an accommodation visit this late in the year, only i didn't get to visit the halls on my open day, and I've been offered a place in Margaret Rule halls! Just have no idea what they're like

    You can see photos on the websites of each hall, they're obviously mocked up to look good but still give you a good idea of what the halls look like.

    I doubt you'd have much luck booking a place this late and at short notice (since I think you have a finite amount of time to accept your offer). Only way to be really sure is to email accommodation and ask. But be aware they're super busy sorting out accommodation offers and so on. You'd have more luck trying to see if anyone has photos besides what are available on the website.

    Congratulations on your place at Portsmouth and accommodation

    EDIT: Went looking for the link:


    Turns out Margaret Rule are being fully refurbished this summer. So even less likely you'll get a visit in. Not that it matters if it's all being refurbished though. Just don't expect to see anything before you move in. Should be pretty nice though if it's all being redone.

    What Acsel said!

    Margaret Rule is a smashing hall and it's going to be super-lovely once the refurb is complete )
