    Hi,

    I applied as a firm choice. Unfortunately getting accommodation from QMUL themselves will be difficult. However, you could use private accommodation. On their site they have private lettings as well as private halls of residences info. Well worth a browse. Sorry I couldn't help any more.

    Will I have any chance? Will the private accommodation be with other students though? I don't want to be by myself

    As Rajvir has said try the link, it provides useful information. A lot of private accommodation is house share so you will be with other students. Even the private halls will have loads of other students. Please don't worry about being on your own.

    You will almost certainly be able to find a place at one of the many private halls nearby, but the problem is most of them are £195 a week + which is very expensive.

    I recommend apply for either of these halls http://www.cassandclaredale.co.uk/

    They are the two cheapest private halls that are near enough, and are cheaper than some of the QM accommodation.

    I'm in my second year this September and I got offers from both, although I applied months ago and you'll probably go straight to the waiting list, but it's worth trying anyway.

    I'm frantically looking for accommodation too! I've been having a look and personally, I think the Scape one seems best considering what you get and the price. It's still ridiculously expensive, but it's an awkward situation!

    Also, have you tried calling them residential department - they never answer?

    Was that ensuite? 215 a week is crazy. I'm in the same position as you

    Private halls are getting really full apart from the expensive ones (anything around 200 is still shocking though) so i'm looking to find a house nearby from the private lettings site with some people instead. There are some reasonable ones being just £120'ish a week and still look nice so you shouldn't worry .
