    Oh cool, I haven't had a chance to see the uni for myself so I'm gonna go. Do they give tours of the Accomodation?

    Generally on open days they do, they did accommodation when I went in the summer (I went on the weekend so I don't know if it might be different on weekdays?). You'll probably be given an open day guide with all of the information for talks etc running through the day. They normally have subject sessions, accommodation tours, campus tours etc.

    I got an offer for Criminology & Psychology for 300 UCAS points, I was contemplating putting the University of Roehampton down as my insurance but reading through the booklets today it says I can only apply for accommodation if they are my firm.

    I personally know I want to firm Royal Holloway (although I don't know if I'll get in) so bit gutted that I won't be able to apply for accommodation for Roehampton too as living out for the 1st year is really important to me 😟

    So, if I do put Roehampton down as my insurance I'll have to live at home which provides food for thought I suppose...

    You can still try and find your own private accommodation if you end up at roehampton or put your name on a waiting list or something in the hope that a room will become available because some who got accommodation may go through adjustment or clearing so might not end up at roehampton so you can take their place. Although you may not end up in the hall nearest to your campus which shouldn't really matter.

    Because I wanted to put them down as my insurance, but in the offer holder booklet it says if they are my insurance choice I can't apply for accommodation.

    Congrats on your offer I got an offer for Criminology.

    To be honest, it's entirely up to you if you want to put Roehampton as your firm or insurance choice but of course you are aware that if you put Roehampton down as your insurance, then you will not be able to apply for accommodation. You should choose the uni that you really want to go to as your firm. There are always alternative accommodation options

    Thank you! Congratulations to you too Yeah, I will go to all the applicant days and then make my find up. But Roehampton was never going to be my firm, it's more a matter for me personally deciding whether I want to put them down as my insurance but I'll just choose my 2 favourite unis and sort out accommodation somehow. Have fun at the open day! I have to go to 2 applicant days so decided to give the open day a miss x

    Aw thanks yeah that would be best ^_^ I decided not to go the open day either considering I've already been. I'm just going to go to my applicant day on the 25th Feb. Is this one of the dates that your applicant day is? X
