    I think Origami Bullets said in another thread that they never sell out so you should be fine. Although, I think the general recommendation is that you wait until you get there to see what your flatmates are doing.

    Ah that would probably explain it, still at least you got accommodation sorted early and everthing. I'm having an absolute nightmare with mine, tempted just to go private.

    I'm so happy I was able to swap my catered owens park accommodation to oak house MA.1.23.166
    How did you manage that? I'm trying desperately to get mine changed but having no luck at all.

    I'm not usually a shy person but I'm getting really nervous thinking about meeting everyone now! Just want to move in and make friends with my flat
    Same here I know the small talk will be easy enough just hope my flat mates are nice and want to go out and do stuff , getting nervous already about making friends even though I'm ok at being sociable

    Hey, I'm doing Ancient History! I got into UoM through Clearing so basically saw the Uni for the first time today... It was everything I expected and much, much more! Incredible environment, really great course... I'm looking forward to it! Slightly nervous because I'll be moving up from London and I am praying that the accommodation is good. I've sent off my application and I'm just waiting for them to get back to me. Hopefully I will get what I asked for, but I know that that is less likely now.
    I wouldn't worry about accommodation if I were you I looked on google maps and most places are within 30-40 mins walk of each other so you can walk to a friends house . Also if you don't like your accommodation you can apply for another later in term one , I think the form is on the accommodation site but you might end up liking your halls anyway . Good luck with getting your first choice !
