    Same im gunna get up early on tuesday morning to apply if they do open that day do you know if like previous people who have applied for accommodation got their first choice?

    Well done ;D and I think I can get them, my tutors seem to think so, so thats good Im doing a BTEC so its a bit different to standard A-Levels cuz I need 1 distinction and 2 merits but ill think Ill get it

    I cant wait for uni haha! x

    Heya, accommodation opens next Tuesday, and you will get the information on how to do it just before. I'm not doing Criminology, but I have an awesome friend who'll be doing it there

    (Original post by Castaras)
    Yeah, I meant shared bathroom. The Standard non-basin ones, which JoFo has none of. Wish I could go for premium, but can't. =/
    Did any of you receive an accommodation email today? I didn't.... *hope it'll be tomorrow or they lied on the phone :emo: *

    The site's been updated, and these are the things it says on the site...

    " * Firmly accepted an unconditional offer since October 2010 or Firmly accepted an unconditional offer before October 2010 and have taken a gap year...

    You will be able to apply for accommodation online from March 2011 and you will receive an email giving you the appropriate instructions in late March 2011. Once you have submitted your application, you will be made an offer of accommodation by email within 15 working days.

    * Accepted a conditional offer as your firm choice...

    You will be able to apply for accommodation online from March 2011. You will receive an email giving you the appropriate instructions. Once you get your results and your place on the course is unconditional, you will be made an offer of accommodation by email."

    So looks like it could be a few more weeks. :s

    That's so annoying, it would be much better if they didn't continually give me the wrong information by phone.
