    Any postgraduate students who have received their accommodation offer? I submitted my application on 30th April and haven't heard from them yet. Although the website does say that graduate students should receive a response by late July OR August. I guess I am just getting impatient.

    I've had an unconditional offer since early 2015 (I took a gap year) and submitted my accommodation request in April. On the website it says that you should be told about where you'll be by mid-July, but I've yet to hear from them, or get my username/email. Has anybody else got their accommodation details yet, or are things just moving slower than they expected? Thanks!

    Does UCL require a deposit for accommodation?

    Yeah a £500 deposit is required for all accommodation. They just subtract the amount from the third term accommodation invoice.

    Any advice on how a poor person like myself with £0 to my name is supposed to pay a £500 deposit? As far as I'm aware, I don't have access to my student loan until the start of term?

    Hi, I am also looking for accommodation for the following year. I'm a 2nd year male maths student looking for other maths-related degree students to share accommodation with. The cheaper the better, but all sensible options considered. Would prefer to live within cycling distance of UCL.
