    For anyone who has went through this process, I know that you get to put down 3 choices for where you want to stay. I would prefer to stay at the £90 (2014 price I think) accommodation and I am aware this covers three houses. Are they separate when putting your 1st,2nd & 3rd choice on the form or is it done another way? If so how?
    I would also like to ask, How is the £90 accommodation at Hillhead?

    Thank you!

    Hi,

    I was at Hillhead last year. The three houses (Adam Smith, Fyfe, Wavell) count as one choice and then you say if you'd prefer mixed/single sex.

    For what you get I think the accommodation is reasonable though the showers can be tepid and not have strong water pressure. Kitchens aren't great as you have one fridge/freezer to share between 5 people and the food cupboard you get is tiny - cereal boxes can't fit.

    BUT it's warm, well sized, and cheap.

    I wasn't in the catered accommodation, but I'm pretty sure you eat in the restaurants on the 1st floor of the Hub.

    Thank you! fingers crossed I get accommodation in those house as I don't particularly want to have to pay for the more expensive ones :L Plus I'd rather mixed sex and I'm pretty sure the other mixed sex ones are the expensive ones and some the catered options.

    Where can I find the ID number needed to apply for accomodation? It says it has 8 digits, the ID from the letter of admission, however, has 10.

    If you're an offer holder applications for accommodation aren't open yet.
