    I think you're treated just like everyone else and are given a random number and an accommodation unless they specifically mentioned firmers get priority.

    I'd imagine unconditional firms come before everyone else, I was a conditional firm and had no problems (neither did my friend at college who applied for the same accommodation) and as far as I can recall nobody I spoke to during first year who had firmed had not been given the accommodation they wanted.
