    I'm the same! I called the paragon and asked if they have any idea where else I can go and they said I have to speak to the college. I called West Thames but the person they directed me to wasn't there. I want to get it sorted too. If I find anything out I will let you know xx

    Paragon said I can wait until August to see if any rooms become available but I'm not sure I can risk waiting that long because if I don't get a room I wont be able attend the course. I emailed Michele gates the higher education lady and she wasn't aware of the problem and they give out the paragon leaflet to students which isn't very good xx

    Me too. I'm panicking now. I'm from welling in Kent. If I wanted I could probably travel about 2 hours each day but if rather move out. I'm going to try and find somewhere by the end of the week so I can start getting it sorted. If i do have any luck I will let you know xxxx

    Hi girls I'm in the same boat, was kinda relying on getting a place at Paragon! I've looked at other halls in London but they're way more expensive But I'd be up for a house share with you all cause at least then we'll be living with people from the same college!

    I'm doing the HND Specialist Makeup btw xx

    I've just been looking on Rightmove and I've seen quite a few houses in Isleworth, Ealing etc so quite near the college, a lot of them are like £500 a week so if that was split between a few people it wouldn't be that expensive xx

    I know! It might even be cheaper than halls. I have found a few cheapish halls too but I think they're more like hostels tbh, and I really don't want to stay in one of them lmao xxx

    No I wouldn't either. Are the bills separate with the house? Like not included with the £500 per week? Xxxx
