    They're definitely not temporary, it's just that those who are sharing a room are the first to be considered for a single room if somebody who has one drops out of uni. I have been given a shared room and I have been looking into house sharing as an alternative, but it is so hard to find flatmates! Has anybody been given a shared room in Woodland Court?

    This is what my email confirming I had accommodation said:

    Be aware that the room allocation will most likely be one of two outcomes;

    - A single room in one of University Residences in the City Centre

    - A temporary shared room (two students per bedroom) in one of our campus residences

    Those allocated a temporary shared room should realise it may be November or December before we are able to assign you your own single occupancy room. If assigned a temporary shared room we will do our best to match you with someone who has similar schedules and daily routines

    Oh, mine just said that I had been allocated a shared room and that they would try to match me with somebody from my faculty.

    I phoned the university and they said it was the only thing they could offer me. :/

    Hello everyone! I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this (I'd hazard a guess that it is) but my name's Ben and I've been allocated accommodation in Eastwood House as a first year studying Natural Sciences. Anybody else living in Eastwood? It'd be great to get in contact with people before I got to Uni

    Oh right. I wonder why they said on that email temporary then :/ Oh well, If I do end up getting shared it would be strange sleeping in the same room as someone I don't know.

    Been put in "The Lodge" wherever that is in a shared room. No information about it though. Considering it isn't mentioned on the website I feel a bit put out. It apparently only holds 14 undergraduates in total.

    Edit: Just found out it is part of Westwood C which makes me feel better, I thought it was going to be just some random building on it's own haha.

    Interesting, In a shared room in Eastwood at £60 per week, and an email said I get given £35 a week for food on campus as there are "limited" cooking facilities there.

    Suspicious of getting charged £25 a week for a room! What is Eastwood like?

    I was given a temporary shared room at Woodland Court but now it has been changed to John Wood Court. I would have preferred the shared one tbh since it's cheaper and I don't have to get the bus every day.

    Hi,

    I work in Admissions at Bath so thought I would post a reply.

    You should shortly receive an email from us with details of how to apply for accommodation.

    You will need to wait at least 48 hours from when you choose us as your Firm option at UCAS until you can apply for accommodation as we do not receive notification of your decision from UCAS immediately.

    Hope this helps!
    Thank you for posting from Admissions! I'm hoping to attend Bath in 2014, and firmed you on the 3rd April. Will I be okay to apply for accommodation on the 8th? Is the weekend counted in the 48 hours? Kind regards and I look forward to hearing back from you.
