    How's aberdare hall..HONESTLY? i heard that there no facilities & all,but on the website they mentioned about having a private library & garden? Thanks in advance for your help
    ... Aberdare Hall is the most equipped of them all.. it serves breakfast and dinner every day, it has a large hall that is often used by the uni for events, it has a lovely courtyard to sit in and it is the only halls that has common rooms as well as kitchens (although they keep removing the common rooms one by one to build new bedrooms...). As for the private library, I'm afraid that this year they took out all its books and turned it into the Music Library, but you're free to use it whenever you want and the silver lining is that it now has computers, WiFi, printers, photocopiers, friendly librarians and Music students (some of which are male!). The downside is that the library is no longer private, and some people seem to resent the fact that men (shock horror) and the general public (during working hours on weekdays) are now allowed into their halls (albeit only in the Library and they're not even allowed to loiter when walking between the front gate and the library).

    Oh. I want mine too.

    Mine only went unconditional a few weeks ago though; I hope that doesn't mean I'll have to wait ages to get my accomodation offer.

    I would guess anyone who has an unconditional though will get the accomodation they want (unless by some freakish coincidence we all applied for the same small halls), so probably no reason for anyone to worry.

    You appear to be forgetting the rules, here:

    Whatever the Senghennydd one with the en suite was. Wanted to be close to the CS department, easier than getting the bus or whatever up to the sport centres a few times a week. Then the other senghennydd ones, then the taly ones and then I forget the order entirely.

    I remember it took me ages to find my student number for the accommodation site, I had to find an email talking about my deferred entry. At least, I hope that was my student number. It was in this format (top left of email):

    7 digit number
    My Name
    My address
    My post code
    LD/DEFER/my UCAS number
    That was genuienly the only thing I could find...
