    joining in on the 'this has probably been asked' theme - if you've been accepted to a hall and you had it as your second choice does that mean you were rejected from your first?
    See this is what I dont understand assuming probably a vast number of people who have conditional offers get better or worse grades than they expected and therefore dont go to Reading, there will surely be lots of spare spaces in each of the halls, including your first choice accomadation. Surely then you should be given priority to fill these spaces in your first choice if you still want too :?

    I had the same problem earlier when I was trying to check my application. I assume the system is just down, but if it's not working tomorrow you should probably email the accommodation office.

    Also, I think if the hall is full then they remove the option from the application form, that's what I've heard from others who have applied recently. Quite a few people were put off by the prices of Mackinder and Stenton though, so hopefully there will still be spaces. Good luck

    all help appreciated

    Well that sucks. Stenton and Mackinder, all rooms are classed as enhanced en suites though so its the standard rooms still left. Yeah Stenton is only part complete but the front part of it (the bit nearest to the centre of campus will be done!)
    I reckon you may be able to change but it is unlikely because others will be given priority for example those who get a place through clearing who can't get a place in halls straight away.

    Stenton looks just as good as Mackinder so I don't think you have much to worry about

    You need to contact the accommodation office, they are very friendly and helpful. Just telephone 0118 378 5555. That's the number on the website so I assume it's the right one. Good luck

    Anyone had their accomodation offers through yet? Mine has shown accepted for ages now and I thought that offers would be going out a month ago. I see they published pricing now so I am not sure what is holding mine back!

    Yeah do this. Although I reckon they require a certain amount of 39 weekers so that they get enough money to start covering the costs of building work. They may make an allowance though so it would be a good idea to ring them up

    Is your course offer conditional or unconditional? Because if it's conditional apparently you won't get your accommodation offer until results day, when your place is confirmed.

    I've got an unconditional offer but no accommodation offer yet, they said it'd be 3-4 weeks two weeks ago so I guess now it'll be 1-2 weeks until they start sending out offers
