    I have an uncondition offer for A&F, I am seriously considering taking it up. If I apply now, would I be guaranteed accomodation? Im from London so I definatly need that guaranteed room. Also, what is the nearest to gyms/sports/school of business!

    Thanks in advance.

    I thought Uni choices have been already decided by now?

    Well if you can change your first choice to Loughborough - then yeah you should get accomodation! It's clearing/second choice students that will be most likely not to get a place though that is also unlikely!

    In terms of nearest;
    Business School = Rigg Rut
    Gym (Luffs) = Telford
    Gym (Powerbase) = Rigg Rut
    Sport = well depends what sport you want to do! Though Butler/Towers are nearest to the sports halls and things

    You won't have all lectures in Business School (you'll have hardly any!) so unless you really want to be by the gym(s) (on that note, don't apply to Telford unless you are a gap year student) then just go for whatever hall you prefer!

    Check out this thread for more information and to ask any more questions

    I applied mid may - Since I have my A levels already - Im not getting conditional offers, so I don't have any 1st/2nd choices like most people, I just choose which one I want to go to.

    Thanks for advice, I will definatly look into it after I finish work! So exactly where are the business lectures held if not in business school:O!?

    You'll find that it's normal for departments to hold their lectures in random rooms across. The only time we go into the Computer Science department is if we have a practical that we have to attend.

    Though, since it seems you're into sport/exercise, I'm sure you shouldn't mind if you have a bit of a walk to get to lectures

    Busines school lectures are all over campus so don't let that be a factor.

    If you dont get campus accomodation, there will always be back up accom and then just living in a house for pretty much the same price. You wont have to commute from london!

    To put it simply:

    If you reply to Loughborough before the deadline and accept them as your firm choice, then no matter what offer you have or what course you're on, you will be given a place in halls. This isn't to say that you'll be given preference over what type of room you'll get, but you'll get a room nonetheless.
