Hi there,

So I've been rejected for student halls at QMUL, kinda gutted but I'm not sure about what to do next. Private halls and accommodation is unfortunately out of my reach. By public transport QMUL would be about an hour to an hour and a half away from home, whilst my insurance (which is in central London) is only approx 30 minutes away. Would it be worth commuting all that way if I got my firm choice for QMUL? What are your experiences?

Thanks

How is private accommodation out of your reach? You would need to look into that after first year anyway even if you had the place in halls.

Have you looked at Cass and Claredale? QMUL recommends them as alternative halls, and they have rooms at around 130pw.

Never heard of them to be honest. Are they private? Time to Google! Thanks for the info

Can I ask, how did you get rejected for student halls? Isn't there a guarantee for first year undergrads that they'll get an offer in student halls? Or is this only guaranteed at some universities?

Well everyone got an email from QM to update whether they were successful in getting into student halls or not. They said to me "Due to the unprecedented volume of applications from eligible applicants, currently all rooms in Queen Mary housing and Intercollegiate Halls are fully allocated to those who applied much earlier than the published deadline. Our rooms are allocated on a "first come first serve" basis, in strict date order.." (this is where I messed up)

Thereafter they offered the private halls at a negotiated price, both in East London, but still out of my reach.

Queen Mary is also one of those unis where you cannot reapply to live in student halls for second year.
