    Do part-time postgraduates get guaranteed accommodation? (I'm not an international student)

    Also, I am thinking of applying for accommodation, particularly STandard Single City (Mary Chapman) or Standard single campus (Orwell Close, Wolfson Close). I'd prefer the latter, would they make sure that I'd be sharing with other grad students?

    How many people do you share toilets/bathrooms with and how many are there available? Is it 1 toilet/bathroom per flat or are there lots of cubicles on the floor? What are the sanitary conditions usually?

    Thanks for any help!
    O/W have cubicles shared between a group I believe whereas Mary Chapman has 2 bathrooms per flat.

    I don't think they can guarantee who you'll be sharing with but I think you can let them know a preference. For O/W there's usually one of the buildings that's mostly post grads so it's likely you'd be with them there.

    Please correct me if anyone sees anything that's changed (esp the O/W bathrooms as I haven't seen a pic in a while!)

    Are any FB groups available yet to find flatmates? The fresher's one just seems to have trolls on it with admins not really caring.

    The university should create them once the bulk of accomodation offers are given out post A-Level results day.

    So from reading the email UEA has sent to me it appears that Home Undergrads need to be at campus 19/20th of Sept but home Undergrads only get accommodation 24/25 Sept and SU's fresher's is W/C 18th Sept. Anyone else see something wrong here?
    the standard academic year is from the 26th september with freshers week being that week. Some courses start earlier (medicine, allied health courses the main ones) and for those students studying them accomodation move in date is earlier too. Medics also have their own freshers week.

    I have a question if that's alright; I was assigned to Norfolk terrace in the ziggs at Block F Flat 1. Can you tell me where that is in terms of where it is in the building i.e ground floor or first floor etc. Also if by any chance you know anything else about that specific flat or block that would be superrr

    Anyone else in that flat? or close by?

    It depends which accommodation. For the ziggs or Mary Chapman fairly big. For the village it's a tiny pod. For ensuite campus they're a reasonable sized ensuite.

    Is your offer conditional? If so, then you won't get an offer until your place is confirmed post results day

    As I said, if the offer is conditional its normal that you haven't heard from them yet and there is no need to contact anyone.

    But it is unconditional for a long time as i said in my previous post. The message didn't send well i think.
