Also wanted to know how many floors the lakeside accommodation has and due to my friend applying through clearing and unable to be allocated accommodation, if they are unable to find suitable accommodation before term starts, are they able to stay within my accommodation until they have found a suitable private off campus accommodation?

Sorry for all the question, I appreciate your help

How does the laundry setup work? - are machines/dryers within the accomodation halls or somewhere else. Also, how much does a wash/dry cost each time? Thanks.

Hi,

It's been a number of years since i've set foot in Lakeside, but i believe Lakeside is around 8 floors.

In terms of guests, i believe accommodation policy states you can have up to two guests stay for three days at a time.

Hope that helps

Washing machines are based in the bottom floor of blocks A and B of our ASV accommodation and lakeside accommodation, you'll be able to check their availability using the app too.

It's all handled by a topup card system, you can find more information here:*https://www.circuit.co.uk/

Hope that helps

Hi,

I believe lakeside has seven people per flat, those will be sharing the kitchen with you.

I wouldn't worry about security on the ground floor, the whole of Lakeside is gated accessible only by your student card, any would be thief will have to pass up to three authentication points before they get to what will be a locked room door.

Hi,

Usually interviews are held for Optometry applicants who apply through UCAS, but may not be put in place for clearing applicants. Best thing to do is contact [email protected]

Hope that helps

Varies from course to course, sometimes you have a lab with an assessment, attendance is logged via the online assessment.

Lectures don't often have attendance recorded.

Hi

I feel like I must be being really dense here. Everyone seems to have gotten their accommodation sorted, but when I log into the accommodation page it says all of my applications are still awaiting 'verification'. I don't understand if i have missed some vital part of the application process here? I can't find any way on the site to that would allow me to 'verify' the application, and I thought I had completed the application. So I dont understand why (if it's not something I need to do myself) I haven't been given or denied accommodation.

starting to panic now, someone please respond!

Hi, mine said the same at one point. I think its Aston univeristy who need to do the verifying. I had to wait a couple of days until they offered me accomodation so i believe it's normal. For piece of mind i'd email them!
