    Do you need accommodation before you enrol? I haven't ordered my iD card yet and the deadline is the 17th if you want it on time...so idk?
    Not sure, give accomodation a call to confirm. Hoping that we all hear where we are staying early next week rather than the last day on 17th!

    Got my offer last night, Connaught halls, wessex lane - part catering, cat 1 (no ensuite or even a basin in your room)! sharing 2 showers and toliets with 15 plus kitchen which is tiny as its part catering. Not sure how they tried to match my choices as they were all self catering with ensuites!

    I think its a bit of a shock when you get offered something that you did not choose, but looking at reviews, I have seen great things about Connaught.

    Hi

    Antony from Unilife here. I have stumbled across this thread and notice that quite a few students are panicking about not having received their accommodation offers yet or were hoping for en-suites and have been offered shared accommodation instead.

    If it helps at all we still have some availability in our two Southampton buildings and have a large number of 1st years booked for this year. All our luxury self-contained studios feature en-suite bathrooms and include all bills, unlimited high-speed Wi-Fi, TV and TV license, contents insurance, 24/7 CCTV security and on-site gym and social hub. We also currently have a special offer whereby all Southampton bookings qualify for £400 cashback. Feel free to take a look at our website to find out more or take an online virtual tour of the studios.

    Hopefully this helps provide some of you with other alternatives to consider, in case you do not receive the accommodation offer you had hoped for.

    Feel free to message me if I can help at all.

    Antony
