    haha yeah, probably better not to doubt your uni choice though, just say the accommodation service is crap, and leave it at that lol. I already have my family trying to get me to change my uni (even though i physically can't, even if i wanted to), i don't need myself doubting it

    That would be horrible, i'd just go ahead and start filling in a Open university application if they said that to me, don't think i could handle the stress

    Someone earlier mentioned that they have an unconditional offer and never recieved their ID, so they rang NTU and got it that way. You will probably have to do the same. Most people who don't have their ID, me included, are going to ring tomorrow because the office is closed today, seems like NTU have f**ked up pretty bad here.

    How hard do you think it is to leave your accommodation earlier than at the end of the year? (you have to find another student who is willing to take the room instead of you)

    or would it be easier to take up accommodation after courses have started?
