    You won't get anywhere in Talybont through clearing but most other halls will have some rooms, Uni Halls is usually a place where quite a few people in clearing go but they usually get put in some of the crappy buildings there, at least the buzz at uni halls is amazing so maybe have a look there.

    I received 3 emails from them this morning: one with my username, one with password, and another later on about the accommodation..

    But I still haven't applied for it as I can't get on the website as there's always a server error

    Everyone seems to have had their username and password and I haven't and I cant get hold of anyone to ask them for it!

    Oh noooo!! I just figure that even if we get stuck somewhere awful because we apply late, whoever we are with will be in the same situation?

    I applied through clearing and got an email saying they can't guarantee accommodation for me :/ I have an interview on the 25th when there might be cancellations, fingers crossed! Anyone in the same position?

    Yes, I am! Looks like we might be living in a Hotel for a while... I hope they manage to find some vacant places, I'm not sure if I'm keen on living in privately rented accommodation in my first year.

    I was in exactly the same position after clearing. I really didn't want to go into privately rented accommodation but I found some private halls really close to the main campus and they said that they put all freshers in the same blocks so the experience is the same as uni halls. Here are the links if you want to check them out rather than living in a student house or something!

    Yeah well the hotel might be fun for a while :P But I would prefer to be on campus for the first year :/ Just had a look at the Victoria Halls link but my finance is going to be late so I wouldn't be able to pay them in full. Not sure what to do, guess we'll just have to wait until the interview and hope for the best!

    When I spoke to them they were fine with me paying the first installment when my loan came in. From what I hear if people are getting accommodation it will be in uni halls which is really far away. Good luck

    Yeah I'm not gonna sign up for anything just yet accommodation wise, I'll just wait till the 25th and see what the latest is. Have you received that letter they said they would send yet? I'm not back in London until the 15th so I hope we don't have to do anything with the letter anytime soon (eg sign it and send it back)

    These actually seem quite good but I'm just going to wait and see what they say on the 25th, if campus halls aren't available then these will be my backup. Thanks for the help
