    Has anyone accepted yet? I just tried to accept mine and it says pay by direct debit but the first payment is like over a grand and i dont have a grand in my account yet? so im worried that if i input my bank details they will try to take the money out and wont be able to! Also do they take the money out before you can request a room change? that seems a little odd if they do....

    i wouldn't think so, direct debit is usually delayed for a couple of months while it's being set up, isn't it? are u going to use ur student loan to pay it off? i hope i get mine for october!

    You can put your details in now, the payments do not come out until after your student loan instalments.

    At least they didn't last year, this year won't be any different.

    hmm.. so many undergrads still waiting for the accommodation emails. I thought you guys would be placed first hand.

    I got my accomm.offer in mid August, even though I applied after July 1 (well, a geographic mistake at the faculty - they thought I was an international student and gave wrong directions, but later promised to sort the things out for me). ok, I haven't got what I wanted (Polden Court), but at least I'm informed.

    good luck you guys in getting what you asked for!

    Just a quick question too... these En Suite "Pods", what actually is a "pod"? How is it best described? Is it one of those bathrooms where the whole room is tiled and you walk in and there is a plug in the middle of the floor to allow everything to "slip" through... and the shower is on the wall.... so everything gets wet? obviosuly there is a toilet as well, but for them drunken nights/competitions etc ! (kidding) Is it worth bringing a pair of flip flops? :/

    tiny little thing with shower, toilet and sink.

    sitting on the toilet you can probably touch all the walls (although not at teh same time).

    things do get wet, but the shower is kinda in an enclave.

    flipflops? yes!
