    I'm not sure, only international students have priority on-campus... European/UK students are considered after international students for on-campus accommodation. Anyway, it's already mid-August and we're still waiting to hear from them. It's so annoying...
    I chose Tocil as my first preference, then Claycroft, Heronbank and Lakeside! But I really hope I'll get into Tocil.

    I called them yesterday. They told me we have to wait and we might hear from them either in late Auguste (wtf?! we already are in late August) or early September. I don't understand what is taking them so much time

    I guess they're prioritising PhD students over MA - makes sense! Guessing Heronbank was your first choice?

    Hopefully. I'm worried because I hear that they didn't have enough place last year for all PG students.

    And maybe they are sending offers in alphabetical order... if it's the case I'll have to wait until the end since my family name starts with a T... Tough life

    yup exactly, though I've heard there is minimal difference really between them

    Bit considered after reading reviews on TSR regarding different accomodations on campus as lakeside getting quite a bad rep, but hopefully all the reasons were for 1st years as opposed to PG's

    I'm sure you'll be fine and I know people who confirmed to me 2 years ago they didnt do the alphabet system for PG applications, so should b the same for this year.

    What choices have you made for off campus?

    tbh off campus has its benefits, I only vouched for on campus due to convenience and laziness to fly to Coventry to find a flat, the price of lakeside is ridiculous!!!

    Ahah we'll see. But there is no way I end up in Coventry... I didn't even put Coventry as a choice. I had a terrible experience two years ago in Cov and I finally moved on campus.

    Anyway, I'm still praying to be in Tocil. Maybe I'll have an answer by the end of this week.

    I'll let you know!! And congratz for Lakeside! You'll like it!

    Hey Najah! If you are worried of privacy on campus I can tell you that it's not that bad. It can be even better than off-campus accommodation. In on-campus you'll be able to lock your room and this might not be possible in off-campus accommodation, especially in small properties. If you're worried about the shared bathroom, only very few off-campus accommodation have en-suite bathroom and you might have to share your bathroom with your other housemates. Most of the on-campus PG are ensuite and if you have to share your bathroom (like in Tocil and Claycroft) it will only be with 2 to 4 people max.So trust me, privacy on campus isn't a real issue.Have you already applied? Some of my friends and I are still waiting for an offer from Warwick accommodation... it's really annoying to have to wait that long.

    That is really nice !
    and what about the single sex areas, I have asked them and they just keep telling me that they could never guarantee that.
    I have not applied yet as was thinking about these things :/


    Hop you receive a convenience accommodation offer soon

    I know they do have some single-sex flats and I think you might be able to get a room in a single-sex area. However, as they said, it's not guaranteed. You should apply, the deadline was on the 31st of July, so it might be to late to get an on-campus accommodation but they might have some off-campus accommodation left.

    You can also try the SU forum. There is a thread for people looking for accommodation. You can also try on the PG community on FB, some people are sometimes looking for another flatmate etc...

    Yes, I hope so ! I'm just tired of waiting. I think it's a shame because Uni starts in one month (or less) and a lot of us do not know where we're gonna live and we paid £250 application fees to wait this long, it's a joke.

    oh that most likely the same day as me, I don't think I will tbh as I know the area well and also being from the UK. It's alot of money which is better suited for people coming to study in the UK for their first time, so I'm still undecided, might hop along some events if i don't attend it though.


    Also thinking if coming on the 23/24th is a bit too late given most people settle in quickly and will know people by then : S
