Has anyone heard how difficult it is to get graduate housing? My college offered me a room aat Exeter house, but I am going with my husband and 4 kids, so I am on the waiting list for UNiversity family accommodation. I know the list is long, but we got on it in February. Has anyone heard any nightmare or success stories with regard to landing one of these family houses/flats?

Does Exeter not have family accommodation? Some of the more mature friendly colleges do.

When I was at Oxford, it was just me and my partner, no kids, but we had no problems getting both coll and uni accommodation (both 1 bed flats).

I guess this is going to be a hard question to answer though, as you're more likely to stay put with a family etc.

In my experience, when it comes to uni accommodation, the 'free-er' you are the better. We were on the 1 bed flat list for about 4 weeks before we were offered a flat at Rewley Abbey Court. We got it, because the myriad of people ahead of us were not in a position to move...
