    Hi guuyss!
    So I applied late for uni, got in QMUL and applied for accommodation about 10 days ago, immediately after receiving my offer. But the housing services just emailed me and told me that it's very unlikely that they will be able to provide me with university housing so even though I'm on their wait list, I should start looking for private housing alternatives.

    I have an unconditional offer, firmly accepted and I'm an international student, do you think I'll et any preference? Also, do places at uni for housing open up following the results?? Really worried please help!

    I would advise you to email the QM Housing Services again and seek advice from them regarding private accommodation. You are gonna say you are international student and you don't know what to do and how to find private accommodation. They will be able to give you some guidance.

    And it's true that it's unlikely that you will get a place for accommodation since you applied for accommodation pretty late. It's safer to start finding private accommodation in case you end up with nowhere to live.

    Regards.

    Thanks!! Emailed them about my situation. Hopefully, it gets sorted out soon.

    Have you tried the list of alternative accommodation on the QMUL housing website? They list private halls and have a student flatsharing noticeboard, and recommendations for short term accommodation (to enable you to find something when you arrive).

    I have the same problem, also an international student.

    Did you manage to find somewhere to stay yet?
