    I've applied to do maths stats and actuarial science and got an unconditional. I live in Edinburgh and was wondering how likely I am to get into halls if I accept?
    I'm not sure if I want to go to Heriot watt or Edinburgh Uni because Edinburgh is more well known but I prefer Heriot watt campus and the student life is apparently a lot better. No idea what to do, any advice?
    Thanks :-)

    Hi there. From HWU's website I can see that they have around "1,700 residential places available" on campus. I Googled to see how many freshers (1st years) there were last year and I found this document: (http://www.hw.ac.uk/documents/annual_statistics.pdf).

    In here there is a page titled '
    UNDERGRADUATE FRESHER STUDENTS BY GENDER: 2011/12 - 2013/14' where it states there were 2,131 freshers for the year 2013/14.

    So, in summary, it may be that not everyone will get halls, but remember that not everyone wants halls!

    While it's true that there's no guarantee that you will get halls if you're from Edinburgh, there's no harm in applying and seeing what happens. When I lived in halls there was a girl on the floor above me from Edinburgh and another guy from Bonnyrig so it's not that unlikely I don't think.
    About choosing between Edinburgh and Heriot Watt, it's worth your time deciding which course you would rather do as you can't do all the actuarial stuff at Edinburgh.
