    If Portsmouth is my insurance do I still need to choose accommodation?
    to get uni halls you need it as a first choice. If its insurance you might need to check local housing.

    Is anyone (female) looking for accommodation? I'm looking at private halls which are hell of a lot cheaper and nicer! I want to share a 'flat' or 'double room' which is shared kitchen/bathroom with separate rooms for £65 a week!

    http://www.unilife.co.uk/locations/p...ation/stjames/

    It's a really good deal as it's in the center of portsmouth right next to university, cheaper and don't need to share with 6 others!

    Hi, I am interested in this option. I just had a look at the link and I really like the rooms.

    Im rooting for Rees! I checked out it out when I went on tour at Portsmouth, and it just spoke to me. I dont feel like sharing a bathroom or risking having someone steal my food in the kitchen. Plus, I really love British food, so having someone make it for me twice a day is just too good to pass up Still hope there is some American food in the hall's neighborhood!

    Anyone know when we hear back about accommodation? Apparently you need to pay the deposit for the first term in June/July

    It says on my accommodation pack that students hear which halls they have been allocated "by the end of July onwards"
    From what I can see you pay the deposit to secure your room on receipt of it being offered to you.

    Hope this helps,

    Chris

    Im from California. Well, its actually cheaper for me to study in the UK than it is here at home in California. The expenses are ridiculous, so it is slightly less for me to study over there. Not to mention it will be nice to actually have health insurance for a change (too expensive here so I cant afford it). Also, the state is so overcrowded that entry into universities is extremely competitive. For example, one of my "local" universities had 14,000 applicants last year, and only took in 2,000 of those applicants. I had a friend who had a good GPA who was denied simply because there wasnt enough room.

    Other than that, most of the universities dont have the program that I wanted. The UK seemed like the best option for me since I love being there and would get a better education there.

    I've been a student for a year and I've visited every halls other than Rees and Trust Hall(langstone).

    I would recommend Margaret Rule or Trafalger, and recommend against Langstone and James Watson.

    I would only be against James Watson hall because of the curtain walls allowing a draft in mainly during the winter or when its windy and cold and also there were many fire alarms, most were in the lift lobbies so it is difficult to determine who set it off. On another note, security is really bad when it comes to managing the fire alarms, it's as if they don't care or they have nothing else to do.

    Really hope i get in Rees Hall, just 3 more weeks left until I hear from the university as will many other people and their respective choices of halls.

    If you're applying for Sept 2013 entry then you've missed the chance and will have to find private. Unless you're being very prepared for 2014 entry ;-)
