I have an offer for postgrad at warwick and most of my future classmates who got accommodation offers are off campus, even though they had first few preferences for on campus accommodation.
Why do you suppose this is?
Whats the point of asking your preference if they are going to give you your 4th 5th preference at this stage? Its still august.
Doesn't the university prioritize international students for on campus considering they are going to a completely new place?
