    I applied for Cartmel as first choice when the email offer to apply came out! Got my course place confirmed last year! Any clue when confirmations of room applications will begin?

    From what I understand, though this is referring to Furness rather than Cartmel. You should receive allocations around late August. At this point you should know the type of accommodation and your college. You may know your block as well but will not usually know your room number or floor until you arrive.

    Confirmation for your rooms begin from this week! They may take a while as their all sent off by our residency officer, Edwina, and it's a very busy time for her. You'll get an email explaining everything so make sure you check your junk and spam folders too!

    How will I know whether I have been accepted by this college as I haven't applied for accommodation?

    College allocation is based entirely on what accommodation you've applied for. All undergraduates (Freshers) are guaranteed a place in residence if they apply before 15 August, so you need to apply really quickly to get a place!

    There's a page here that shows all the different prices of accomodation and the lengths of their tenenacy: http://www.lancaster.ac.uk/sbs/accom.../ugsummary.pdf

    And here is where you sign in with to actually apply for the accomodation: https://www.colleges-residences.lanc...y/Default.aspx

    Take a look at the first link and see what suits you best. I really hope Cartmel is the college for you! We have the best rooms and best facilities on campus

    I'm moving in with my husband, is it considered inappropriate for him to come to freshers stuff?

    We're both pretty young (I'm 21, he's 26)
