    Some of my friends going to other unis already know who their flatmates are, so they've been talking on facebook ect. I was wondering if you can find out who you're staying with at Lancaster too?

    No sorry mate, not in my past experience at Lancaster. You can find out a bit a little bit before, but not much more than a few days. This is because you get your flat number a bit before.

    I didn't even know my flat number until I was given my key to it! This may change between different colleges, though.

    I think that is a failing of Lancaster's intro week, personally. I think it would be better to know some people before I arrive. On the other hand, everyone is on an equal footing and cliques can not have developed before people move in, which might be why they do t.

    Nope. You just walk into your flat and meet everyone then. I think it's brilliant because everyone's on equal footing. I personally think that it's just so they can move people around.

    You can find out from the accommodation portal about 3 days before move in. Then you can look on facebook for other flat mates :P, this was for Cartmel though and to be fair, it wasn't really worth the hassle lol.

    Fair enough. This system did not exist when I was a fresher.
