    Hey I'm studying BSc Geography here but have yet to be given an accommodation offer. Is there anyone else in the same situation as me?
    Yes same course and everything applied for accommodation way back in March so don't worry!

    Cool! Birmingham was my firm but insured Soton- getting a lot of Soton insurers on this forum. That's strange you didn't get mayflower since I thought their rooms were in abundance

    You're lucky you got Glen Eyre- that was my first choice but they've probably ran out really quickly since they're so popular

    I just usually just say physics applied to the earth as nobody knows what the course is! I haven't heard anything from accommodation mine still has the status of 'submitted'. Which is starting to stress me out a bit especially since so many have already been allocated to other people! I can't even get on the website at the moment because it's too busy! Never mind, where abouts are you from then?

    Well it was my insurance already and a month or so I decided I preferred soton because it was considerably cheaper than York (a few hundred pounds cheaper!) And because it offers the option to study abroad which I really want
    Lol that makes sense I wanted to do that too but don't think it's part of my course
