University of Brighton Option for Insurance Choices!!! - ACCOMMODATION QUESTION Watch

    So I was wondering if anyone here had any relevant past experiences? University of Brighton does not offer any accommodation for people who make it their insurance choice and for 30% of the people who do make it their first choice, because of limited spaces.

    They do send guides for house-hunting and finding roommates but I'm a but worried about results day!

    If I do happen to go the University of Brighton as my insurance, is the amount of time, from the 18th of August to the beginning of the course, enough time to find a place to live?

    They're sending guides and information now but what they don't cover is this specific situation. I don't want to commit to a house and roommates if it's an insurance offer and there's no definite chance I will be going. But on the other hand I don't want to not apply for anything and then find out I need to find a place to live before my course starts. Also, I live in the north so it's not feasible to go down on a regular basis to go looking for options.

    Hi SarahMarie
    We know that this can be a worry for insurance applicants so we do provide lots of support and information to help you with the process

    Lots of students are in the same situation as you each year. You will be able to find a place to stay in that time although you will need to be able to put in the time to find somewhere. You can join our facebook group, where all sorts of students are looking for people to fill vacant rooms or to group-up to find a place together. We run househunting events in the summer too where people can group-up and view properties.

    Our studenthomes website is one place where landlords advertise properties directly to UoB students. They adhere to our code of conduct and don't charge admin fees. You can get useful info about househunting in our guide and our friendly Accommodation Team are here to help.

    I hope this info is useful to you. Best of luck with your results!

    I am hoping to come to this university through clearing! What is the chance of me having a place in halls as I live in Manchester so I won't be able to commute to university
