    Hi all!

    Sorry that you didn't get into halls It really sucks but unfortunately halls are always under high demand every year and Accommodation aren't able to offer places to everyone.

    Don't worry though, here's some advice on where to look next:

    We have the Official Goldsmiths SU Housing Group on Facebook where people post if they have rooms to rent or are looking to rent, so my advice would definitely be start there.

    Additionally, there's the University of London Housing Service, AccommodationForStudents.com, or RightMove Students.

    We’re also hosting a Speed Housemating event at the Students’ Union on September 10th. We have a Facebook event with more details here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1405083176380097/

    On the GSU website's Welfare section, we have a sub-section on housing on the menu on the left which gives some general advice and things to be aware of while renting.

    And if all else fails, don't panic, get in touch with us at the Students’ Union and we'll see what we can do

    That's being rather economical with the truth when you say there's no space left. The fact of the matter is, accommodation was offered to FORTY students only from the A Level results. There was never any space available, cept for the lucky 40. There are 940 accommodation units at Goldsmiths and 900 out of the 940 available had already been allocated long before the A Level results which were out on August 15th. It is not that anyone is 'unlucky' in this specific situation it is in fact that 40 people got extremely and I do mean, extremely lucky.
    I have responded to your comment in this thread, but as I've said there and elsewhere I'm really not sure who told you only 40 places were reserved for A-Level students because that's really not the case :confused: A-Level Graduates make up the vast majority of people who were offered places in halls; more than half of the total places available were offered and allocated to Freshers from the UK.

    I was told by the office there that the bus stop is right outside, one change and then it takes you straight to Goldsmiths... I think its around 30 mins?
