    Hey all,

    Mainly directed at York Team (who i know are very active on here thank you guys!) but I was told that Heslington East takes preference on foreign students. Is this true? And why so if I may ask as it seems slightly unfair to prioritise anyone!

    Also, I was told that for heslington east there's a 7.5% chance of getting your first choice, and with no proof I'm slightly hesitant to believe that but any clarification?

    Thank you!

    Hiya,

    I'm not sure where you may have heard this information but I can let you know that this isn't correct.

    We do not allocate certain rooms to international, EU or home students over and above another. We use a random allocator to assign rooms based on an individuals preference list that they give us when they submit an application. We do allocate firm students first before those who have put us as their insurance choice.

    Campus East is a very popular choice, but the chance of getting a room there varies depending on how many people have selected a room there as one of their top choices and whether a particular room type is more in demand than another for example ensuite.

    The chance of getting a preference near the top of your list is raised if you submit an application sooner rather than later as we take into account the date of when the application was submitted when we allocate. Again, the chance varies depending on how many other applications we got on that date and how many had the same preferences listed as their top choices.

    You can see more on how we allocate at the bottom of our Applications and payments page.

    I hope this helps, if you have any more questions please feel free to email us at [email protected] or call us on +44 (0)1904 322165

    Thanks,
