Southampton Accommodation Watch
I have an offer from Southampton - do i have to organise accommodation with them now? Thanks for any help
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.
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.
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also I was told that you would find it difficult to get a place on the Highfield campus, although this info is a bit out of date.
