    Hi,

    Manchester is my insurance. Do I have to apply for accommodation now or after results day? Is accommodation allocated on a first come first served basis or so long as I apply within the 31st august deadline it's okay?

    Thanks!

    I think, because Manchester has loads more accommodation than they need, you can apply for it even if it's your insurance (indeed, I have a feeling you can even if you haven't yet made choices). Not sure if it's first-come-first-served, but I think it probably is.

    If my info is wrong (might be, as it's from memory), at least this is a free bump.

    Yes, you need to apply now - Manchester is unusual in that it treats firm and insurance applicants equally for accommodation purposes, but the earlier you apply the more likely you are to get the halls you want. Have a read of this http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=2091577
