    Many people have not received their accommodation (Around 200 first yrs in my uni), and some are 2nd and 3rd yr students. Other reasons include being rejected, or even due to increase price in rent so most drop out and decide to look for others.

    Fair enough impression was they left it too late which maybe some did
