    No idea why I got rejected..I'm gonna call them tommorow and see if I can find out. Tbh I was shocked when I read their e-mail. I have a conditional offer for the MSc International Banking and Financial Studies.

    Funny thing is that my status is "submitted" as well.. I must have done sth wrong with my application. Maybe cause I wrote down only 3 preferences and they were all ensuite rooms....
    I read somewhere in their website that you need to submit different types of rooms, not just self-catered/ensuite....no idea.
    It's too harsh I think to reject me if you take into account that I am a postgraduate!
    Unfortunately postgraduates aren't guaranteed Halls accommodation, and with the fact that Chamberlain is no longer in use (takes away about 150 rooms), they have to make sure all the Freshers are offered rooms first.

    Still, it certainly wouldn't hurt to ring them and beg. :yy:

    You probably did something wrong in your application, because as I understand, all conditional offer's students should receive an answer in Aug/Sept. If for year 10/11 there are no available ensuite rooms, why they appear in the rooms options?

    Are you an international/EU student?

    @byraul: I'm a EU student from Greece.

    Yes I am starting to think that I did something terribly wrong....and I think I found what it is. In my online application, the student type field says 2 E which means current postgraduate. I'm not current postgraduate ofcourse..I have a conditional offer for 2011/2012. I must have mistyped there.

    I just called the accomodation service and I reported that mistake and they said they will inform the headmaster or whatever and let me know if I can make a new application done properly this time.
    But it's strange that they didn't check my Student ID in order to see that I'm not a current postgrad and I have a conditional offer..
    Any other suggestions?? Should I call the School of Management and report the problem or it's a waste of time?

    Wait for the answer from accomodation service. If it's not a positive one, try to contact your school or admissions office. Good luck!

    Ok I just got their reply email and they erased my application so I can make a new one! Thank god!

    Now any suggestions for the application? What have u guys put in the accomodation types, etc? I am interested in ensuite rooms but from what I've seen from the uni website they want applicants to differ the room type between their 5 choices.

    Can you apply for a Short Contract for any halls? I think I'm going for Standard w/washbasin in Wessex Lane, so I think thats Monte 1?

    Bit confused about whether I can apply for a Short or have to do Standard Contract length and still get the hall I want?...More than willing to move my stuff out for Easter and save 5 weeks pay though!

    Highfield Hall (small halls)...always forgotten haha.

    Anyway it has about 120 rooms between Aubrey and Wolfe House and a dining room (it's part-catered) and has a small bar. The rooms are arranged on corridors with about twenty people sharing kitchen/bathroom facilities. It's less than five minutes walk from Avenue Campus and about 10-15 from Highfield. I am not sure if it's only Highfield that has the short contract or if other halls do as well.

    Exactly the same, with no preference for gender.

    Hopefully get enhanced though, just for less people sharing bathrooms.

    Kalimera ; ) I'm also EU from Spain. Do u think they'll wait to send the accomodation offer till we meet the entrance conditions? Coz for me this could mean September and by then for sure then wont have any room to offer

    Yeah, I'd prefer enhanced just because I don't want to share a toilet with 20 people. Seems far too many :/

    Highfield counts as small halls, as does Bencraft. They can't be specific, since they've got fewer rooms than the individual sections of Glen Eyre/Monte.
