    I got two offers of accommodation yesterday and both of them are in John Foster Hall and are premium plus ensuite rooms. I didn't apply for premium plus because of the price so these offers aren't actually from my choices and the cost is much higher than i'd like because the prices seem to have gone up from last year. If i ring up the accommodation office is there a change they will change it or do I just have to take this accommodation?

    I'm in the same position, I emailed them today and they basically said that's all they have left. All five of my choices were standard/premium ensuite rooms so I presume they don't have any in that grade left. Think I'm just going to settle for premium plus, even though it's much more expensive than I'd like.

    If you contact them they can usually put you on a waiting list for a move, as a lot of people move particularly after the first term.

    John Foster pavilion rooms are a lot more expensive but they are nice and the kitchens are as nice as the self-catered places despite you being catered for. The kitchens in other catered halls are tiny and extremely basic and don't have many facilities whereas the JoFo ones are big and have everything (microwave, kettle, fridge, freezer, oven, hob, dining table and chairs, loads of cupboards). Also in JoFo you get your room cleaned once a fortnight which includes your bathroom, and the communal areas get cleaned once a week. They also do the bedding laundry for you (sheets and pillow covers) every fortnight, and that's all provided for you, and they provide you with a pillow and duvet and duvet cover. So yeah it's a lot more expensive but you get all that stuff that the other halls don't you see!
