    Why didn't you get accommodation?
    (Original post by DizzTate)
    Hi, did you not get accommodation because you live in London? I'm in the same boat but still need to move closer to the campus as I live way too west to commute. Are you going to go in for a house/flat share?
    Yep, it's because I already live in London. I live in the North West so literally on the other side of the city. I think I'll have to look into house/flat share, on the open day it took me just 2 hours to get there and almost 3 to get back so I really don't want to commute. (Granted there were major delays on the tubes and coming back was during rush hour, it was a nightmare!)

    Are you?

    Yeah, exactly the same. Not sure where to start looking though ha. I reckon there must be a lot of first years in the same position so was thinking about trying to buddy up with people to get a house or flat.

    Yeah, that's hopefully what I'll be doing once results day is over with. Those events organised by the Students union to find accommodation sound helpful, will be checking those out.

    they send you an email with the offer, and you have to complete what looks like a series of rather complex forms haha. They said on their site that it should be on average two weeks from your offer becoming unconditional firm to getting an accomodation offer so I figure mine was rather early!

    And hooray everybody! Guess we'll see each other there!

    Hiiii guys
    I am one of four girls who shall be living in a beautiful house in South East London from September.
    We have one bedroom spare, at £105 a week, from the 3rd and really need to find someone to rent it.
    The house is about 7 minutes on the bus from both Goldsmiths, and Elephant and Castle, on a quiet road round the corner from the Police Station. It is a mid terrace, good sized, generally rad house, and we're all superb. Not that I'm biased at all. We all go to Goldsmiths, and are now in our second year. Anyway, we're looking for someone to come and live with us. With bills, it should be around £117 a week, which is a darn good deal really. Let me know as soon as! And congrats on getting into uni!

    Anyway, please message me at : [email protected]

    Haha. I'm sorry to disappoint but I'm 25!! However, I've spoken to a couple of 18 year olds via the FB group who are going to be living in Chesterman so I'm sure you're gonna be fine!

    P.S. What's wrong with living with the oldies!?
