    Ok. Deviating from the topic in hand but does any1 know whats happening about a Freshers Week? I cant find anything on the Portsmouth website or the Unions wesite. Is there one? Cos the Halls open on the 2nd and apparently the 1st semester starts on the 4th or does that include a freshers week?

    Please forgive my ignorance!! lol!
    i assume so! i dont think theyde make us find our own accommodation for freshers...be a bit pointless!

    maybe it starts on the 4th and they just include it as part of the term!?

    I'm sure they wouldn't make us go to lectures and work during Fresher's Fortnight! I think it is just incorporated into the term, as has already been said

    The site is down, but it was about the Fresher's Ball I think. I really don't do formal occasions very often, so I guess I'm going to have to don a suit for once :rolleyes:

    mmm. I am slightly worried about it. Apparently i look good in a dj but i think she was slightly biased. What a blow to confidence if she was biased! Arrrgh!

    It's now Tuesday the 3rd of August, and I still haven't heard anything from Portsmouth about my accommodation. I think I'll need to give them a call.

    Definately - call them up and they'll let you know which hall you're in and possibly delay your due payment date if your letter doesn't turn up

    i dont like to say this, but they said that if you dont hear anything then it means that you havent been offered a place in accomodation...

    that could be the case, or they could just be a bit delayed in sending out all the letters!!

    my fingers are crossed that you get a place!!!!!

    Hmmm.. I'll ring them when I get home. I don't see why I shouldn't have been offered a place because I put them as my firm and I sent the accommodation form out which they got before 1st June because they sent a reply slip. ARGHHHH!
