Wooo! The halls are lush aren't they. Have you been to any open days? What course is it you're doing?

Yeah! The look great from the pictures. Yeah I went for one last year but I didn't really get to see the accommodations. I'm doing accounting and business. Have you been to any open day? And what course are you doing?

Hey there, I'm currently at Mackinder and if you have any questions about this hall or living in halls in general, or anything else, feel free to ask My suggestion is if you have an opportunity, go and check the accommodation, the newer halls are really great place to live. I'll be on the open days after 2 weeks, but I don't think that they'll allocate me to the accommodation tour, but nevertheless, if I can be of any help, just write me and good luck to everyone!

Hey,

I am doing accounting and business too and have been offered a place in Mackinder! Went to see it at the open day and preview day and it seems really nice.

Does anyone know what the move in day is and how we book an arrival slot or do they announce these closer to the time?

I was having a look on the website yesterday and they now have halls arrival guides! If you read them it will say the arrival day for your hall

Really hoping that I get offered a place in Mackinder! (Well provided I actually meet my offer…)

Hey Mlwells!! its great to finally meet someone doing this course too and staying in mackinder aswell.. you can find all of that info on the welcome page and the arrivals guide. (to book the arrival slot you have to complete your e-induction first through the student portal but im not sure if you can do all of that now)

If you guys are wondering what Mackinder is like, this video will show you what it looks like inside.

The video is actually for Stenton Halls but the inside of the halls are pretty much the same, just the different colour schemes:

Hey, same, so glad I found someone! I have done my e-induction but there was no link after it? Have you booked yours yet, I'm so excited! Have been on a gap year so bored out of my mind at the moment.

HEY! I've got a guaranteed room in Mackinder halls for this year that I no longer need. If you want, you can take it up from me! Let me know if you are interested ASAP.

really? i havent even done my e-induction yet (when i logged on i couldn't do anything), but what i read was that after the e-induction you'll be able to do that. its probably too early then. you should probably just keep checking back. Same here!!! i'm literarily counting the days for this summer break to be over. So excited to be back in England!!! :P

Yeah, it just says e-induction completed but nowhere seems to say book arrivals or anything? You are probably right, maybe they have to wait until everyone has been made offers?

Where are you from/have you been?
