    I'm an international student who is 17. I just found out I'm not eligible to move into uni accommodation since I'm not 18, but I'll be turning 18 six days after the move in day so I can't move in till then. Any international kids out there who have late birthdays (don't turn 18 until after the start of school)? How did you guys handle the situation?

    Contact your uni and ask for their advice. What you can do is going to depend on location and the uni you're going to.

    Hey Pans_Lost_Girl! You are blessed with youth!

    The University will have a policy about it that you should stick to, and procedures to follow - have you asked them about it? The Student Union where you are going should be able to help too...
