    Ah sneaky plan. I get the impression that a lot of people do that. I'm guessing you want to be right next to the uni then!

    So you are also an unconditional offer holder, right?

    They never fill up all the places and give the rest away first come first served.

    The fact that nobody else seems to know about it is what's allowed me to keep doing it
    Well now you've told the interweb...everyone on TSR is going to be trying it!

    Only the unconditional offer holders have received the accommodation stuff.

    :P So do you just ring up accomodation on the day the rooms are given out and reserve one for yourself?

    Also do they have different kinds of rooms available or only the most expensive ones?
    They have a form on the accommodation page that you can fill out. Then they ring you a couple of days later if they've got a room for you.

    Medicine requires you to be 18, some other courses might too.

    Lemming Pembridge and Garden at the moment, as my choices are all restricted to 115ppw max. I've actually penned down two types of rooms for both of these halls, and put down a Beit twin as my last one.

    I know some Evelyn Gardens and Wilson House rooms also fall under this price band; but I haven't put them down for a reason - if I'm going to be put somewhere further from campus, I'd much rather it be in a slightly more "home away from home" setting. (Close to campus is another story, because they're ALL together in a cluster.)
    Evelyn Gardens has quite a few halls clustered there so it feels like a very studenty-packed village, and Wilson House is massive - in contrast, Pembridge has 99-100 max (you see where I'm going here...) So a bit more close-knit, and more like "home".

    PS// No, haven't applied. "Penning down" = my own list to refer to later xD

    Nope. It's a total luck-of-the-draw thing with regards to roomies.

    does electrical engineering (H600) require me to be 18? My offer does not say I am deferred entry, so does that mean that I can still start even though i'm 17?

    Just a question before I look at all the halls, does/can anyone recommend a hall close to the chemical engineering faculty, and at the same time is known to be sociable?? Cheers

    Do you know if all of the halls offer guest housing? Or is it only some of them?
