    Its 2 pages long, so yep pretty much 😣 but they are categorised into terms, so there's about 5/6 books each term. Yeah I got it through email from the department alongside another "congratulations on making it lancaster" attachment letter. You might hear from them this week perhaps

    Hello! International student here, doing a foundation in life sciences, hoping to move into Ecology & Cons. BSc. Staying in County, but moving in on the 1st as I booked my ticket for the 1st months before, and they very kindly let me move in a day early. Honestly, I'm terrified (despite the fact I'm slightly older due to a goal switch so I'm a little late to uni) and worried about living in a foreign country with no family or friends. Are you guys all locals?

    Hey, I'll be doing Ecology and there are a few international students on the course already, so don't feel like you're the only one! Lancaster is a really nice place and there's a strong international community among students. If you have facebook, there's a page just for students studying in the LEC, so you could join that if you have more questions or if you want to meet other students.

    Hi! That's great to hear, you'll be my actual senpai in 2017 then haha! But yeah, my best bet would be probably to find friends from my country (fingers crossed) just for a little respite from homesickness. I just really hope I get along with my flatmates and find buddies to do stuff with. Thanks for your reply!

    I found a Facebook group that has lots of people saying what blocks of accommodation they'll be in within their college (I was specifically looking at the Pendle one). Does anyone know how to find this? I'm really confused because I can't see anything on the accommodation portal

    It should be in the induction portal. Have you gotten the email? They don't give out room numbers, but they do tell you what your building is once you've seen all the pages and set a time to pick up your keys.

    I ended up getting that email about an hour after I posted that, but when I tried to login then and now it says 'Web Login is unavailable due to an internal error'....

    I had that issue too until a few days ago where it seems they fixed it. The error isn't on your part, so you might want to email the uni tech department or whatever. It really should be fixed by now because it has been weeks since they realised the original issue.

    I waited a while to see if they'd fix it but it still isn't working so I messaged them, hopefully they'll reply soon! Is there anything super urgent on the portal that I need to do? I don't want to end up scrambling last minute because of it being broken
