    Will we have an iron?

    I'm in Fylde Superior Ensuite if it helps
    There's not usually an iron in the flat, but I think most colleges have some that you borrow from the porter's lodge on production of a library card.

    After a month of uni, I bet you will only use it when absolutely necessary. I used it onced in a whole year...

    The trick is after using the tumble dryer hang them up STRAIGHT away. then you dont need to. A hard shake does the trick too

    I think I'll send an email asking/nagging now, haven't heard anything yet and my flight tickets will probably sell out if it's gonna be much longer. Should be a nice excuse eh? anyway, I don't want to call as the international call would be so expensive - which is the best email adress to use?? accomodation@lancaster.ac.uk ?

    Maybe... or it might be worth emailing the cro of your 1st choice college - go direct to the source. Or, email anyone and everyone and then hopefully someone will reply :p:

    contact your bank to find out the problem. The tell the uni you are trying to pay but there is a slight problem and you are endeavouring to sort it out.

    This has happened to me a couple of times as it's a large payment that you don't make often so may have been flagged by fraud detection. As Ponpon said a phone call should sort it out!

    You sign the contract for the year so are liable for rent for the full term of the contract unless you find someone to take your room (who is not vacating other uni accommodation) who is acceptable to the cro.

    On Moving In day. You'll register first with the College, and then collect your keys from the Porters - Just tell them your name and they'll have a list with all the information on to work from.

    All sorted when we arrive I believe, since they're not actually allowed to give any more details.

    Oh! I actually applied for a standard room but they gave me a superior en suite room. Being an international student, I have to stay on campus at least for some amount of time. My friend told me that I can talk to the accommodation officer once I arrive and see if there are any rooms available as a few students don't come and a few would want an en suite room.

    How likely is this to happen ? En suite room is kinda expensive. I really want to switch to a standard room.
