    Anyone staying in McClaren House this year? Had my offer through for a room this week & just about to accept

    Also, can anyone shed some light on the payment situ? They say we need to pay the first installment on the 7th, but I don't know anyone who'll have £2,000 knocking about! Anyone spoken to them about this?

    It's McLaren House. Stayed there 2010/11, thought it was ok. Can't help you on the payment question. I just paid the instalments whenever they were due.

    All rooms in McLaren are en suite. They don't have mixer taps though - means you can either burn or shock-freeze your hands and face :-/

    hi im olivia, also staying in mclaren house!
    i queried the £2000 payment on september the 7th, the woman quite rudely told me there isnt much they can do and that i have to borrow it from family or use my savings. i explained that im going on my student finance and that there are no other options, she then told me if i can prove my student finance is on its way i can pay £800 then the rest when i receive my finance.
    £800 is still a large amount!

    They don't pay the student finance til the 16th Sept do they? That's crazy, don't know how they expect people to pay over £2000, a week before people's loans come in! X

    If I've read correctly, the majority of rooms are en-suite & about 14 aren't. But I'd imagine if you've got in early you'd get an en-suite

    That's right. I've just received all my nonsense from them. I think the actual deadline for SF is 31st May, but I spoke to quite a helpful lady who told me you have to pay 6 weeks worth on the 7th, and just show your SF confirmation to prove you'll be receivinf funds on the 16th, then you can pay the remainder of the first installment
