    I'm sure you'll have already found this but if you haven't it might be worth having a look at our accommodation web pages. Which ones are you choosing between?

    I received an unconditional offer if I firmed Hallam, and I did so I'm definitely going to uni!! I'm going to study Accounting and Finance which I've been dead set on doing since Year 10 but recently I've been wondering if the Finance and Investment degree would be better for me? I don't know, but I'm just so excited to go to uni!

    Hello

    I've got a conditional for Journalism and have put Hallam as my first choice loved the open day so now I'm actually so excited for September!

    I'm just wondering, how quickly do we need to apply for accommodation - is it likely to be full as soon as the UCAS deadline hits?

    Congratulations Charlie, that's awesome

    Glad you loved the open day. September will come round in no time.

    We'd recommend applying for accommodation as soon as you feel you're ready. Applications opened at the beginning of December, so if you have confirmed your offer you can apply now. Some of our accommodation is very popular and fills up quite quickly so if there is a particular location you'd like to live in, we'd suggest you apply soon. If you're still thinking about the type of home you'd like to live in though, do take the time to work out what you want before you rush into a decision.

    If you have any further accommodation questions, let me know

    Thanks,
    Laura

    Congratulation for getting your place at Hallam!!!
    Hi,Im Arif I do finance and banking at Hallam and am on my 3rd year, depending on what aspect of finance your interested in, you can speak to a course adviser at 01142255533 to compare the two courses or you can click here and compare the course and see which you prefer. Both courses will be held in the City campus, which is great as it is in the city centre and in walking distance to most accommodations. Personally I love the course I do as its practical based and real world orientated.

    Hi,

    I've applied for psychology and received a conditional offer. I don't seem to have found anyone else that's applied for the course though :/
