Catered or self-catered?
In self-catered there is a kettle but no toaster I believe. I would wait to get a toaster though, and all chip in as a flat to buy one once you have moved in.
I would think catered would be the same, but I am not certain...

Well, that is a relief. Well, apart from the fact neither of us know where we will be yet!
I don't know about you, but not knowing makes me jittery. The fact the it could take until a week before we have to move in makes me nervous, especially if we have to book time slots!
Yeah me too! All last week I was checking my emails so much but I have sort of got tired of waiting now and just not worrying about it! One of my friends also applied to Leodis and hasn't heard, so I have no idea what's going on and why it's taking so long! I wanna buy stuff too but I don't know where I am so I can't really buy too much just basics! x

I was the same, constantly checking my email (still am a little bit to be honest)!
I know that everything is alright, and that sorting out 8000 people takes a long time, so people are bound to have to wait, but I wish I knew where I was going to be.
I don't want to ring them up 'cause I would feel guilty I was wasting their time! Afterall, I don't suppose I need to know right this second... I just hope that when I finally to find out I am still able to book a timeslot for the Saturday (I can't move in any other day!). Eeeep!
Ah, by stuff do you mean furniture and things? I don't think I am getting anything like that... at least not until I can save up some money!

I just called! They were fine about me calling and said I'm at the top of the pile and should hear in next day but not today cos they are short staff with the bank holiday. If u applied by 1st July you will probs hear tomorrow too cos they start allocating people who applied after dead line at the end of this week

Oh! I did think buying furniture might be a bit odd, but for some reason that is what my mind first thought of!

I don't mind either really. The only place that I don't particularly want to be is Boddington: just because I have had to deal with with traveling an hour to get to college, then an hour back, for 3 years and I really don't want to have to go through it again!
Though if I did get put there, it wouldn't be the end of the world I supppose. I have heard there are a lot of flat parties, which is more my thing than clubs, so silver lining and all that.

I was hoping that I could find out through the portal thingy-ma-bob, but my accomodation intro isn't showing up yet. Have you had a look?

Ooo! Did they tell you what you got, or just that you will hear soon?
That puts my mind at ease a bit, as I did apply before the deadline (only a couple of days before mind you!).
Thanks for letting me know, maybe I can stop panicing a bit now.

As laura2701 just said all applications done before July 1st should be dealt with before the end of the week. Don't worry.

You can move in from the day your accom contract starts, although most people will probably move in on the weekend (17th/18th) for one reason or another.

I am doing Business management and philosophy joint honours , i was considering doing sociology instead of philosophy because i had never done it like you, but i stuck with what i know with philosophy
Ohhh very nice ;D and aah I did philosophy at alevel, was considering doing it at uni too but for some reason I just didn't want to haha, probably gonna regret choosing sociology if i turn out to be rubbish at it hahaha xxxx

Yeh same i did philosophy at A-level, so decided to play it safe and stick with it, plus i found it really interesting. TBH i wanted to just do business management but that was 3 A's which i was not confident of getting so did joint honours to guarantee place, only needed ABB . Still im sure i will enjoy Philosophy

When can we start registering for electives out of interest? I quite want to do beginners Italian or French, advanced German or some beginners Russian. Got to think about it first but I imagine they fill really quickly.

I think you can do it once you've gone through the registration process, but I didn't do it until freshers last year as I wasn't sure what I wanted to do and we had an introduction to the uni's IT system.

I've just done the registration process, but the system says I'm not currently allowed to change or add any modules. Was there a fair choice when you looked for electives at freshers?
