    It's first come first serve, and people who live further away get priority if you live in the same place as your uni you automatically get stuck at the bottom of the list. If your concerned about halls pick less popular options e.g. no private bathroom, less people choose this and the rooms tend to be bigger or catering (but chances are the food will be awful). I'm in my first year now and in halls (and catered-the food sucks). hope this helps

    Different people say different things. But usually no it isn't first come first served. It is allocated to people who have unconditionals first around July time. Then it is allocated to those with conditionals once their offers are met on results day. At which point it is whatever form they pick up first. It doesn't go off distance as that would be unfair and it can't go off the loan as that might not have anything to do with your accommodation (ie. parents pay accommodation and you get the loan to live off)

    Pretty much yeah... Unless MMU do it differently to every other uni (which from what I can gather from their website they don't) then yeah you won't hear until after exams...

    They won't allocate it to conditionals because there is no point in case they don't meet the condition and the room would be empty

    Here's what it says on the website...

    "Allocations usually commence from July each year and you will receive your formal offer by email. Therefore it is essential that you provide an email address that you will have access to during the summer."

    That means they start giving them out in July... to people with unconditionals. Anyone else it is through the summer. Mainly when your offer becomes unconditional. They won't give them to people with conditionals because if they don't meet the offer they will end up with a whole bunch of empty rooms to re-allocate...

    Trust me, I'm at uni... and the uni I'm at does it in that system because of the whole if you don't meet your offer thing. Therefore if you have an unconditional you're actually more likely to get your first choice accommodation

    eMMU has heard a rumour on Student Room that offers of accommodation will only be sent to UF applicants in July. THIS IS NOT TRUE! All CF/UF applicants are processed at the same time

    Scroll down to the 14th of April. Thursday !!
