    Hello everyone, I'm Italian and I won a 9 months erasmus scholarship for the university of kent (starting in september 2013:CAN'T WAIT UNTIL THEN ).

    Yesterday I've sent my application form and I'm waiting for my ID and password in order to apply for accomodation. How long does it takes from the time you send the application before they send the ID?

    I'm a bit anxious because I've read so many threads about accomodation dated January and I'm wondering if I've got a chance to get the room I want ( My first choice will be Park Wood 6 bed houses). Thanks everyone!

    Hi Dic!

    Congratulations on getting the Erasmus Scholarship!

    Trying to organise accommodation from abroad can be really tricky, but don't panic, there will still be rooms left in September. You might have less of a selection to choose from but doesn't mean that there won't be good rooms available

    Keep an eye on placebuzz.com - they advertise lots of rooms in student house shares.

    Good luck with your planning! Hope this helps

    Thanks for your answer, it was really helpful. Anyway, I will probably apply for accomodation within the next week, so I hope to find something! I've read that many students prefer Keynes college or Darwin because they're closer to the lectures, so I hope I'll find some room left in Park Wood ;D
