    Mines just changed to processing, applied on the 28th march. I've also had another choice added to my list, I applied for Victoria Halls and Opal 1, Devonshire courtyard has been added for me.
    Any idea what this means? Maybe we were meant to pick 3 and only picked two, and to progress the application they had to add another? :s

    Mine still only has 2 choices and changed to processing on Friday. Don't want to be a downer but maybe they've allocated you to the residence that they've put as your third choice? I can't see a reason why they would otherwise

    Mines the same, changed to Processing this afternoon but no 3rd choice has been added, maybe those (lets hope not) that got a 3rd choice is where they have been allocated to due to the high number of applicants to the other choices they had?

    I suppose we'll find out when the paper work arrives, I'll be just glad when it's sorted.

    Well Devonshire courtyard was added to the choices after the accommodation applications website went active, so I imagine it is undersubscribed. It has some negative reviews but looks pretty modern and the location is great, near Victoria Halls, also it's cheap. I would have probably had it as my second choice instead of the forge if I had seen it when I applied

    Yes I've been pretty impressed with the pics i've seen and the location, some parts look a bit small but never mind. Makes the crawl home a bit easier pub underneath it as well, according to google maps.

    Haha would be quality with an adjoining pub, as long as it's not too rowdy late at night.

    My third choice came through as it changed to processing, there's still plenty of people waiting, most haven't got their results yet. I know it doesn't make it any better for you, it's terrible having to wait but I'm sure once it comes through you'll have en suite and all that.

    Mine came through as well, Victoria Halls Q3, bit annoyed though as I said I wanted a single or 3/4 room and they've allocated me a double room. No point asking for another room though cos I'd probably end up in exchange works or something.

    Overall pretty happy though

    Could always try find someone to swap who didn't get what they wanted later on. By the way how much is the Double room?

    It's £97 a week, £4074 total, so about the same as the Forge's cheapest room, which isn't too bad if you look at it that way.

    I put £100 and put in the notes that I didn't want to spend more than £95 and would prefer a single room, they gave me a double at £97 lol.

    Which choices did you make? In a lot of blocks the only option offered is en suite.

    I did the same as you and in the additional information requested an en suite and described why I needed one, if I don't get an en suite i'm going to be annoyed because its mostly because of a health problem. Single Rooms with ensuite were £87 per week on the website but now seems they've gone up to £91.
