I found out today that one of my friends, 1st choice for their uni applications is at the same uni as me (Portsmouth).

If it ends up that we both get offers and firm it and apply to halls, can we request that we're in the same flat?

Yes, but whether or not they honour that is a separate matter. Can't you just apply to the same / nearby halls and then go and see each other regularly?

There's never any harm in asking, but it'll depend a lot on how the uni manage their room allocation procedures as to whether it's possible/whether they'd be prepared to do it.

Also, think carefully about whether you and your friend would have compatible lifestyles in terms of sharing accommodation. Sometimes sharing a flat/house with someone can put a strain on an otherwise strong friendship, such that actually the people involved would have stayed closer if they'd lived slightly further apart!

You can ask, but it depends on whether the university will listen or not. Sometimes they may put you near each other anyway, depending on how they allocate rooms, my friend was put next door to her sister, despite neither of them requesting it.
