    It's likely that we'll get one of our 5 - though there is the horror story of the guy who applied for single rooms and ended up sharing a room on the south bank with 2 Thames Valley students :eek: Though obviously that can't happen now ICL isn't part of UoL.

    I just hope they don't put me in a single deluxe room or anything stupid

    This. My dad has agreed to pay up to ~£5500 of my accommodation. Think I'd probably be paying the rest myself if I ended up in an ensuite

    Hah, yeah. Good luck with that :p:

    I mean, the thing is that I don't get a grant because my parents can afford to help me out. My parents help me out because SFE don't give me any free monies. Etc etc.

    The only people who get screwed over are the people whose parents earn lots and don't help them

    I agree

    I doubt i'll be getting that much extra though (far less than my parents would give me if they were rich lol) - hence the need for me to keep my part time job whilst at uni :dry:

    Can't remember where it is, if you have a look in the funding section of Imperial's site then it's around there somewhere

    Basically, they give you some money if you get some grant. Top bursary is £3300 :eek:

    Yep :yep:

    It's roughly the same as your grant, which you can get an idea of on the direct.gov site if you know your household income

    :woo:

    I'm going to try and get a job in Lush simply cause I want the staff discount :p:
