    I have an open day tomorrow so would it be better to apply for accommodation now to try and get in somewhere decent, or leave it until tomorrow evening after I've looked round the uni?

    Congrats

    Id say wait because its not accommodated on first come first served basis then again i think people who got offers without using clearing will probably have higher chance of getting their first choice. But you will 100% get placed in a room in one of the colleges. But you might be better off asking them tomorrow .

    Hope you enjoy the open day the uni is awesome!!

    PC Gaming really is the better option anyway

    I would have disagreed with you a year ago, but it's growing on me. Maybe it's because I now own a laptop that can actually run games released in the last decade

    Well I suppose I can post here even though I'm not techinically in yet... I have a verbal offer, and am waiting on an e-mail, which Lancaster promised will arrive tomorrow.

    Course: LLB Law
    Offer: Clearing
    Grades: ABBB
    College: I have no idea how to even apply, as they have not told me yet. Any advice on how to apply for accommodation would be appreciated

    With console, I'm considering taking my 360 if I can find a small cheap TV.

    With accommodation, aside from cost, what is putting people off from the self-contained apartments? Just curious...

    Heyyy you will get the offer don't worry lots of people have missed the grade by one or two grades even 3! And they still got accepted.

    Im guessing after they send you your congratulations letter (by post - this will prolly arrive like next week or maybe on sat) they should send you an e-mail to with a username to log in and pick your accommodation.

    On Facebook type 'Lancaster Residences' and you can see all the colleges and different types of accommodation they offer. They should give you a deadline (i think its around 10-15 days time i heard it was the 24th of aug don't quote me on that though ).

    Im bringing my PS3 and 32" TV as i don't see the point in spending money on a TV when i can bring the one I already own .

    Apparently self contained flats are more common for grads or couples and its very secluded from other students/people and socially wise too - this is since there is no lounge or shared kitchen area. And i don't think many students get accepted even if they apply .

    Hey guys so I thought i'd make an early thread. Congrats to all of you who got in . I already have my results and will be studying Computer Science. Now we just need to wait for our accommodation offers, I'm hoping to get an superior en-suite room in Grizedale College.

    Now that we all have our results when are you going to start buying the essentials? God I have so much crap to get lol. Ive started of with getting my student account set up, i guess its a start

    If you could respond with the following that'd be great:
    Course: MSci Computer Science (4 years)
    Offer: DDD (BTEC)
    Results: D*D*D
    College: Grizedale Superior-Ensuite (hopefully )

    PS: Also any gamers bringing their console with them and a TV?

    Hey Tish ;P

    Course: MSci Computer Science (4 years)
    Offer: ABB (A-levels)
    Results: A*ABB - confirmed in 2012 and entry deferred
    College: Grizedale Townhouses I hope!

    I'll be bringing my 360 (PS3 BOO), probably upgrading to something bigger and whooshier at christmas, depending on how soon I get a job after I arrive. I run mine through my PC monitor as I've never had a TV ;P
    Not much of a gamer except for CoD/Fifa/portal currently, i suck at Battlefield ;P

    Hope to see you all there (woo)
