    Hi
    I have submitted by application by the 22nd of August, just wondering when I will receive my accommodation offer? Thank you

    Hi tp567 ,

    Apologies for the delay in responding. All of our offers for students who applied before the August 22 deadline have been sent out so hopefully you have received it. If you have not please get in touch with us and we can check out your application.

    Best wishes,

    Alexander

    Hello
    I will be staying at Cairncross House and I have an issue with shipping of my personal belongings. As I am an international student, I have no choice but to use delivery services to bring my things to uni. As far as I know there is no storage facilities at Cairncross House, so I cannot send it before my arrival. However, I was wandering if my package could be delivered on the day of my arrival, just a few hours in advance. Thank you.

    Hi @siege98,

    Unfortunately Cairncross doesn’t really have any secure storage areas to hold packages sent in advance so it would be best to wait until you have arrived and received your full room details before having anything sent through.

    Best wishes,

    Alexander

    Hi!

    How much storage space is there in cairncross house bedrooms? I've seen photos, but wondered if there was room to bring boxes and whether there was room under the bed for storage?

    Thanks!


    Hi @Scottie1058,

    Unfortunately the beds at Cairncross are all fitted so there isn’t any space underneath. For a better idea of what your room will look like why not check out one of our 360 room images one our Flickr page?

    Best wishes,

    Alexander

    Hi @Peet79,

    Unfortunately, due to data protection rules we cannot give out information on your future roommates before you have both moved in. If you know someone in particular that you would like to share your room with then we can try to accommodate you both together but that would obviously depend on availability etc.

    Best wishes,

    Hi Boredandlazy,


    Apologies for the delay in responding. We’ve actually got a new forum for this year that is available at https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho...php?t=5061862.


    Yes, if you are going to be a registered student with the University you will be able to apply for accommodation. If you visit our website you will be able to view the kinds of accommodation that we have on offer and submit an application.

    Best wishes,

    Hi aoibhinnmurphy

    We’ve actually just had a similar question on accommodation from another dentistry student on our 2018/19 accommodation thread.

    There isn’t really a preferred choice amongst our dentistry students as all of the residences are within easy travelling distance of both the main university campus and the Dental Hospital. As far as distance goes Cairncross House, Kelvinhaugh Gate and Student Apartments are definitely the closest being only around 10/15 minutes away from both campus and hospital. Queen Margaret, Winton Drive and Murano Street are slightly further out but, on foot, are only 20/25 minutes way from campus about 40 minutes away from the Dental Hospital. Our catered residence Wolfson Hall is further away again, but like Queen Margaret and Murano Street, it is located close to some good transport routes that will get you into the west end and city centre.

    You’ll find a lot more about our residences on our website which has locations maps and breakdowns for each site. Hopefully this will help with your decision but if you have any further questions please get back to us

    Best wishes,

    Alexander
