    According to the accom. booklet the forms are treated in date order. But you can change your choice of accom after the viewing date if you hand it in before and this doesnt affect it.

    Yeah but....

    It's a conspiracy I tells ya! :p:

    I wouldn't want to walk that far every day, it's hard enough walking back to mine at the moment and I live right by Selly Oak station...

    *moans about the state of affairs* I wish i could get assessed for disability and get an electric wheelchair or something...

    i spose with the walk it depends whether you think it's worth it or not... to me it is, to others it isnt!

    Yeah, i live on Heeley Road :eek:

    I used to walk absolutely everywhere, then I made the fatal error and bought myself a car. Now I can barely get downstairs without feeling the need to be propelled along by a motor and four wheels

    Cool! We think we're gonna go for one of the houses we saw there! So be careful what you say about the beeches!

    Conspiracy or not, it still stands that the Beeches is great! And the Spinney on Pritchatts Park, and Pritchatts Park in general sucks!

    Yikes I'd hate that. They can't just assume you're best buddies just because you go to the same school!
    Ridiculous...

    My mate who always wants to stay at halls wants to come and stay in he same block/flat as me! Actually it will be hella fun, we're not like best buddies or anything but we get on realllyyy well so I doubt we'd be antisocial or piss people off! Maybe we'll write it all over our accom forms so we can get in the same flat!

    I'm starting Birmingham this coming september *assumes he passes exams* and i want to make sure i have a wicked time socially, so what hall would you recommend, i guess it's out of Shackleton, Chamberlain Hall, Mason Hall and Manor House, and also tennis court's i guess. I'm really keen to get involved in inter hall sports and just generally having a wicked time so which is the best?

    cheers

    This may have been asked before, but which of the halls have mixed sections? There's an option for it on the form is all.

    Also, what happens in the 2nd/3rd year? Do you have to live out?

    Mason has gone, so that's not in your list anymore

    I would recommend anything on the vale, so that is shackleton, elgar court, aitken wing, maple bank, tennis courts. the other halls have perfectly good social lives but there aren't the same number of halls clustered around one area.

    Unknown... I don't think there are any mixed ones this year, so it could be a new thing for you all next time.

    Yes.

    You dont *have* to live out... You could stay in accommodation or become a mentor and stay in accommodation... It tends to be foreign students that do that though...
