    Looks like you have some more shopping to do. Oh well it's another distraction I suppose Had to buy new bedding too - after 2 years in a single bed at uni I get a double in this year's accommodation! Might get lost in a double bed as I am only tiny lol!

    I've already got single sheats for beds because I thought that they were small and my mum said singles would fit... And now I'm realising that they will be too small. I might needs more pillows too.

    I have a feeling a double sheat is the only option.

    Loads of time left yet so I wouldn't worry - though in truth my mum sorted most of that stuff out for me when I first started - I was in denial that it was really happening lol - I was such a scaredy-cat about the whole results day/going to uni business.

    Actually it depends on what my accommodation offer is!!!
    Due to speaking about this I thought I'd check my accommodation application and to my horror I found it blank!!! They had all my details but my room choises so that was a fright and a half!!!
    I've spent almost 7 years (if not more!) in a king sized, it's going to feel so small
    And you aren't waiting for A-level results?

    Probably a stupid question but is a 3 quarter length bed smaller than a single? The pictures look bigger but it can't be right?
    When I applied for accomdation at Nottingham uni the slightly more expensive option was for a ' single study plus ' room which includes a 3/4 bed which is 3/4 the size of a double bed and thus is bigger than a single bed and is known as a ' Queen size ' bed so yeh it is deffo bigger ! Hence why I picked this option as I don't want to be in a tiny bed

    Yeah, I assumed it was 3/4 the size of a single :lol:
    I guess I'll find out if I need to go shopping after results day.
