    Hi all!

    I have accepted my offer for Portsmouth University, and its now my firm choice. I've been told i need to apply for my accommodation ASAP, although on the website it says accommodation packs won't be sent out until the end of march.
    Does this mean i can't apply until i get the packs? Or do i have to wait until results day??

    Thanks,

    Yeah mines conditional, and cool sounds interesting! I applied for MEng Civil Engineering but I need 340 points which I'm worried I wont achieve!!
    Which hall do you think you will apply for? I like James Watson but its £126 per week! I think ill end up going for Trust hall as its cheapest (£88 per week)

    I just had a look on their web site and they send accommodation packs out from the beginning of march as long as you have fired Portsmouth by then

    That sounds good! Ahhh 340?! I need 280, although I dont know what the Grade equivalents are for 208??
    My minds completely set on Harry Law halls! Simply because i want to be sharing with as many people as possible (8-9 people) and its en-suite with a decent window in the bathroom haha! They're £122 BUT the £88 ones arent close to the city centre/university itself and i realised that that may be the reason as to why the Trust Hall is cheaper because you'll have to get the bus almost every day?

    I think 280 is BBC? I'm only predicted BBB so will only have 300 (I need another 40 from somewhere lol)

    Harry Law Halls look so nice! and I would like an ensuit bathroom but I'm a bit too mean to pay over £100 per week :lol:

    I agree, the Trust halls are quite far out. Haha I wonder if anyone applies for the studio flats?
