    I've applied to RHL and plan to put it as my first choice the application for accomodation starts tonight however to apply you have to put RHL as your firm choice. I cannot do this as my second choice has yet to make me an offer (which they should do). Am I going to miss out on the accomodation I want or will waiting a week be ok? I've spoken to my second choice but they say I have to wait til the end of the month. Please help!

    Are you sure the accommodation is chosen on a first come first serve basis, or do they wait for all applications before considering places? Would seem a bit unfair, but hey, I'm yet to apply for accommodation myself!

    Contact the uni and see what they say. They might ask you to apply anyway with a note on your application saying that you are yet to firm RHL, but definitely will when you have all your offers.

    Yes, at RHUL it is first come first serve, but OP you will still be offered accommodation if you firm RHUL, and there's always the chance to switch rooms once you get there. Definitely call up the accommodation office and explain your situation; they're really helpful and friendly so I'm sure they'll be able to help you.
