    I'm in D5 Room 10!

    I'm probably being really slow here but how do we find out how many we're sharing with/if it's single/mixed sex? I've only looked at the email briefly for now so it probably says somewhere in there hopefully?? Or do we not find out til we get there haha?

    Relieved to have got the offer though, did you get exactly what you wanted?

    Well apparently in Derwent you are either in a flat of 6 or 10, I'm considering phoning Sheffield tomorrow to see which mine is. I opted for a single sex room but it didn't say anything about that in the email, I'm not really too bothered either way though.


    Eeeeee I really can't wait for September now !!

    Most of Derwent is single sex, with the odd mixed flat thrown in. However, they may change that this year! You don't usually find out until you discover your new flat mates.

    Awesome, yeah it's on the ground floor so you'll be in a single sex flat. It's a flat of 10 too. It's not too bad as it's at the end of the block and not too loud when people are coming back from nights out, it's also in a good position in relation to The Edge and that as it's one of the 4 'main' blocks.

    Nope, definitely not just you! Before I got my accommodation I was still in the mind frame that uni was AGES away! Now it seems so much more real :eek:

    I can't help you on the colour of the room, but I'd guess that it's 10 people, I'm in D4 and I'd guess they'd be the same and mine's definitely got 10 rooms
