    But it is unconditional for a long time as i said in my previous post. The message didn't send well i think.
    Apologies, you didn't quite mnage to quote me so I didn't see it before. You can email if you want, but I suspect as your offer only turned unconditional in July they will sort out your accomodation with the conditional offer holders.

    I see, is it normal for students to wait this long for their accommodation offer after they had their place confirmed?

    It depends when you recieve your offer. Accomodation is allocated in batches, not as soon as someones offer becomes unconditional. One of those batches of offers is distributed a few days after A-Level results day, so those whose offers became unconditional on getting their A-Level Results wont have to wait long. However those whose offers become unconditional at other times will likely have to wait. In my case my offer became unconditional in March, I had to wait until the start of August for my accomodation offer.

    I studied a BTEC so i don't see why they haven't given me one yet. How long should i wait before contacting them?

    Do they email me the offer or sent it to my track?

    Its up to you really, just be aware they will be likely very busy so don't expect an instant reply. And the way they do the allocating is that those whose offers became unconditional after a certain date have to wait until after results day. It's just due to the volume of applications they have to deal with.

    I have an unconditional offer as well and haven't received my accommodation either. If I remember correctly, I read on the website that if you apply for accommodation after 26 June then you'll get the room offer the week commencing 22 August.

    Would you guys who live there say it's too far into Norwich? It looks far compared to say Lincoln, which has the city on its doorstep.

    Lived on campus for a year and then near the uni for another 3 and I didn't find it a long distance at all. Its only 20 minute bus ride to the centre or closer to 15 in a taxi, that goes by in a flash, especially when you are talking to others.
