    I am considering making this uni my firm choice, but I have not heard positive things about their accommodations. Any opinions on which accommodations are better? I'm an international student so I won't be able to see the uni until I arrive for classes.
    What negative things have you heard?

    I've just found out today that University of Portsmouth has declined me for studying Diagnostic Radiography but has offered me a place for studying Human Physiology instead. I don't know why they have done that because I thought I did pretty well in the interviews. Also, does anyone know why they have offered me a place for a different course?

    They probably didnt think you werent right for the course happened to a friend with Sussex who got offered 3 different courses it was probably what you said or did at the interview they think the other course was better

    And can you just answer these questions for me since i have an interview coming on wednesday!
    How was the interview (were they easy going and friendly?)
    How many people interviewed you ?
    Were you invited to workshop? If yes what happened at the workshop?
    Are the optional tours (have to come in at 9am) worth it?
    And in general how was the day?

    Oh no, bless her! I swear I felt ever so confident that I completely said the right answers in my interview though but oh well.

    Yeahhh sure!

    The interview was pretty good actually, weren't intimidating or anything!
    There were two people interviewing me.
    Nope, there wasn't any workshop for me.
    No the tours aren't optional because when you come in at 9 am, they do your CRB check etc! Plus, the tours were kinda worth it for me because you'll get a feel of the uni's surroundings. And you won't get lost
    The day was good but there was a lot of walking to do during the tour though. I didn't find the day stressful though, I was actually quite prepared for my interview!
    Hope this helps

    I mean if you place them as your insurance of course they will give the accommodation to those who have made them their firm first. However I'm sure there should be some go those who have them as an insurance. Are you going to visit Portsmouth at some point if so I reccomemend asking then and they should let you know.
    My friends were offered accommodation last minute after results/during clearing so there is a chance you will still get accommodation. If not, the uni gives you LOADS of help in finding a house in your first year. My friends who didn't get accommodation in their first year didn't feel like they missed out with any experiences in private housing.

    Dorms are reserved for first years except in exceptional circumstances but you'll be glad to be able to move out with friends for a different experience

    As for bugs; if you keep your room and kitchen messy and dirty, only then is it likely to happen. Same with mould, if there was anything then the uni will send maintenance to sort out. More likely to have issues with mould in private accommodation where the houses are all very old.
