    Well i mean it went active at 7:38 for a start (from yougo a girl said she refreshed every minute and since she got Sandby, which was out when i looked, i believe her). I went on at 7:45 after looking at 7:35 when it wasnt active, and when i clicked "Check Availability", Gill Street didnt show, and Sandby showed but all the rooms were greyed out when i went to click one.

    So yeh, it was out quick.
    Alright thanks for the reply, i'm just utterly disappointed how i didn't get into the flat litterally stayed all night only to find out that it was gone

    Yay! I'm in Hampden- ground floor room 31
    We only had to pay the deposit right?
    What you studying?
    I'm really worried I'm in the wrong room because my sister used to go to NTU and she said ground floor is boys only and first floor for girls do you know if this is still the case? :confused:

    Yeah I think its the deposit only...

    I will be studying BA Health and Social Care.

    What about you?

    No worries, nothing can be done now so just try and see the positives really. I was up most of the night too, Norton was my fifth choice, but I'm warming too it after reading more of the stuff

    It says 20 minute walk, so not too bad like. And walking times are usually overestimated, so probably like 15.

    no cus im from sweden and we dont have university owned accommodation you get the money each month so im gonna have a really hard time paying
    I'd suggest ringing the university to arrange an alternative pay scheme. I can't imagine that your situation is uncommon with forgeign students. Maybe they'll allow monthly payments in return for a higher deposit?

    Worth asking though, i'm sure. Good luck and I'll see you there!!!!

    Flats accommodate for as little as 3 to as many as 12, (most are about 7 though). You get an ensuite
