How are they actually giving accomodation offers out? I applied straight away for accomodation, got all the right grades etc etc but still havnt received an offer. Why are some people like Rj04 even getting the opposite of what they wanted? Doesn't make any sense, I've tried phoning, emailing and even tweeting to find out whats going on but havnt discovered anything.

Same situation for me, I applied for self-catered and ensuite and got offered Lady Mountford which is neither and it's single sex.

All of mine were self-catering, and I got given D&R Catering! No friggin way would I be able to afford, or even want to do catering! I'm happy with D&R though.

Same situation, I put on campus, self catering, en suite and have been offered Morton House... Bit of a joke really. You'll have to ring up tomorrow and see if you can change it! x
Yep, I applied for self-catered ensuite and got catered with a shared bathroom, which is an absolute joke seen as I applied for accommodation as soon as it became available to apply for, and they have given me the complete opposite, which wasn't even any of my choices! (Morton House too). I tried to ring up soon as I got the offer but it says if you have been offered catered/shared bathroom when you applied for selfcatered/ensuite you have to email them with your requests after Monday! Don't know whats going on with the accommodation office, loads of people seem to have been given the complete oppsosite of what they applied for...

Applied in April too. HOWEVER, people, EMAIL THEM!!
I sent them an email saying I was unhappy with it, and they've given me self-catered in Roscoe and Gladstone. There's only 10 self-catered rooms in the hall apparently haha. So I am now a happy bunny ^_^

When did you email them? I tried to phone them but it said if you have a request to change accommodation sorta thing you have to email after Monday, if you email before it won't be considered

Just got an offer for Roscoe and Gladstone catered at Greenbank. Pretty much the opposite of what I wanted. I think somethings going wrong at the accomodation office, maybe problems with the system or something because this is happening to a lot of people.

All we can do now though is email them with a request on monday and hope that works.

Hey,

I'm the same all three of my choices were self-catered and en-suite and didn't get an offer for one instead got Morton House. My first preference was Vine Court. I love meeting new people and excited to move and all but sharing a bathroom is putting me off Morton House plus it's not as close to the city as the other places and I'm fussy about what I eat but suppose the cost of Morton House is the same as Vine Court self-catered.

If it comes to it and that's my correct offer then I suppose it won't be soo bad as your only sharing with 3 other people. Everything happens for a reason ehh? & maybe make friends quicker in a Hall like Morton House. Though going to email tomorrow just to double check as a good number of people are in the same situation.

Yeah that's what me and my mate have done, book through unite this morning, although everything is pretty much booked up and we're with international students! Will be better than Morton house though. Don't leave it long if you want to do this though, not many spaces left. Also opal court and opal great newton hall is fully booked up, but you can book it if you're a LJMU student, they obviously have set amount of places for both uni, but seems unfair if Liverpool Uni students are willing to book it!

£122 per week for classic ensuite for 43 weeks. The fact that its on-campus makes it automatically better than anything off-campus in my eyes.

As much as I love my home comforts and being on campus is great, it's only a bus ride away and the atmosphere at Carnatic halls is ameant to be great. I think quicker make mates in Carnatic halls then going through unite.

Hey, I'm just wondering if anyone else is going to Melville Grove? Or even on campus, as most of those seem pretty close? It was my second choice & at first I was a bit disappointed (first choice was D&R) but now I'm pretty happy what with it being on campus and everything. There's advantages to each place I guess It's stupid that they're messing you guys around so much considering they made us each put down three choices.
