    Yup it is :/ I thought that too! I like being able to eat what I want when I want and the flats dont even have a lounge area so your either in your room or with everyone else in the building!

    I thought I was in Claude Gibb because I got a phone call earlier today saying there was no room except for the catered ones or private accomodation. They told me to ring back in the morning but im worried my room will have been given away it was my insurance too

    I got in through clearing, kept ringing and got told all the accommodation has been given out and I am now on a waiting list. Then in September there is a flat finding day for all undergraduates who have not been given accommodation. So we may not be in halls.. Really annoying if you ask me!

    I'm an insurance applicant aswell as being an international student because I live in the Isle of Man. I rang the accommodation office like twice today and they haven't been very helpful so I've just applied for Student Castle which is private accommodation for Newcastle and Northumbria students even though I really wanted to be in halls

    Yeah I've done the same, student castle is so lovely and apparently it's just like halls but I'm scared because its got your own kitchen bit so I don't know if it will be as sociable that's my main concern and as a first year from a long way away too I'm worried about making friends etc

    Yeah it is really nice and that's exactly what I'm thinking! And there aren't any little common rooms for the flats just one big one. But I think the majority of people there are in the same situation as us so it won't be too bad! I haven't accepted the offer yet still got a little bit of hope for halls haha

    " New applications received on or after 15th August - We will assist you with finding accommodation and you will receive information about accommodation before the end of August "

    I am the same going up to see it on Friday, it is really close to both liberty quay and manor bank halls literally they are over the road! I thinkk a lot of us are in the same position and I spoke to the man who works at student castle and he said they put all the freshers together on the same floors and put on social events to allow us to meet people!
