I think I really messed up on the calculations, I'm awful at maths but I did it a silly way when looking at how much i'll have on my first term.

Basically on the 24th September I'll get my grant payment of £1129.00 and the loan payment of £1274.46
so 1129.00 + 1274.46 = 2403.46
I have16 weeks until my next installment comes into my bank, all 16 weeks need rent paying for (apparently we pay rent over Christmas break? )
124.95 x 16 = 1,999.20

so 2403.46 (grant and loan) - 1999.20 = 404.26

404.26 - 16 = £25.26

I've probably really embarrassed myself with that wrong formula but yeah, I'm very worried. Specially baring in mind that this is my cheapest accommodation, Vine Court single is something over £130 and Crown Place double is something in between
Ok so I think this situation may not actually be as bad as we thought! (I may be wrong)
On the Liverpool uni payment page, it says the rent is split into three equal amounts.
So rather than paying for 16 weeks, you'll instead be paying for 13 weeks.
E.g. my rent is about 5,000. So, that split into 3 would be about £1,700, rather than £2080, which would be 16 weeks of rent.

I hope I make sense!

I'm in Dale Hall, we're only there for 15 weeks; spoke to them over the phone and they actually don't have a clue where we're gonna be put after that!
I'm looking at private accommodation, its so stressful!
I applied for crown place single, double and vine court single and didn't get any of my choices! Complete the opposite of what I want, need to pay out for a bus pass but don't know how long i'll need one for and AHHHHH
what? how come i've not heard any of this when they told me on the phone that that was where i had been put?

Has anybody else's accommodation application details/confirmation/payment/stuff just completely disappeared from the online account thing after you accepted the room offer?

so I've gone from having a room in a place I really didn't want to be to potentially having no room at all. great.

She looked me up on the computer and told me that, then I looked at the tenancy agreement and it says my contract is until December... Personally I think private is a better option, I could stick with Dale Hall but I really don't like the idea of not knowing where I'll be put after the 15 weeks

Because they have no where to put us, whilst we're there they will sort out something, I asked if that accommodation will be like my initial choices (en suite, self catered, close to campus) and she just said that those things have been oversubscribed

Hi, i was in the same situation and didn't receive any of my choices. In fact, it was the opposite of what i wanted :/ so i looked at private student halls. You can look to request with first years, and some are pretty cheap. I thought it was a good option good luck with it, see you in September

What halls are you looking at privately? Not had much luck, because LJMU do their accommodation all privately it seems to be around their campuses... Ideally I want something as close to campus as possible might call round a few and ask for the numbers of first years in a flat that I can be allocated to if that makes sense, really worried about being stuck with postgrads.
