    Itss like 70% is catered or something! So getting self-catered its quite hard ebcause you get gap year students etc whom will get accomdation allocated first.

    And you might be okay with ABC a friend got in with that and the offer was BBB ovbiously depends on the department.

    You might as well go self catered if that's what you prefer. I was initially given catered so I declined and reapplied (gap yah student) and got self catered in JoFo.
