No, i dont think you do. I got an offer from them back in November and I haven't had to sort out accommodation yet! I'm going to an open day there on Wednesday, so i'm sure we'll find out then exactly when we have to sort it out

I've just accepted Soton as my firm choice and haven't had accomodation details yet. Going to an Open Day in early march

If you accept a uni as your firm or insurance choice you'll recieve an accommadation form soon after you send your decisions letter back to UCAS. (however remember that a lot of uni's wont guarantee a room if you're an insurance student (or they may guarantee it after 4 weeks of term so you may end up spending freshers week in a b&b))
Oh right, it's just that for Birmingham you send your accommodation form off as soon as poss - i sent mine back yesterday and haven't confirmed my decisions to UCAS or anything, so i was wondering if it's the same everywhere. Clearly B'hams the exception.

LSE do that as well! I haven't had an offer so i haven't had to do it, but i know people that have had to, so its not only Birmingham!

BTW- for LSE it's better to have accepted your offer before applying for accommodation (accepting your offer takes all of 5 min), otherwise it creates more problems further down the line.

This is a Southhampton thread, not an LSE one.

I was replying to Gemma's post. (Why single me out for comments when others have made posts regarding Birmingham etc- last time I checked Brum isn't in Soton as well.....?)

I know that Soton make you apply for accommodation as soon as you accept their offer- it was my insurance place. It's probably best to accept it as soon as possible, although if you accept it as your insurance offer then they won't guarantee accommodation for the first few weeks- also I was told that you would find it difficult to get a place on the Highfield campus, although this info is a bit out of date.
