    I'm doing Maths so I applied for accommodation at Singleton Park. I've just had another check to see if my application has been processed and it's still saying nothing. It's very frustrating as otherwise I need to sort out alternatives ASAP.

    I haven't received any email and my application just says "processed" when I login online.

    I don't want to have to walk miles just to get to the Campus.

    You should definitely call them ASAP before its too late.

    Non of us want that tbh. There are many accommodation that are walking distance (no more than 20min) to Singleton Park, so it's best to consider one before all spaces get taken.

    Someone thought it was good idea to set the deadline for the accommodation on a Friday, which means any problems can't be answered until Monday because they're closed over the weekend.

    The grammar on the page before you login as well is shocking.

    Unfortunately all our residences are now full and at present we are unable to offer students a place in University accommodation for this academic year. We appreciate that this may not be the news that you were hoping for but please be assured that we have options for finding accommodation that prove very successful every year. You should have received an email about attending the Housing Fayre on 13th and 14th September and finding accommodation in the private sector with other students in the same situation as you.Staff and Students' Union officers will be available to offer advice on student housing and help you in your search during the event.

    there is little difference in distance from the university between HSV and St Marys. The bus service is £300 per year approx. St Marys is in the centre of town 2 minutes walk from Wind Street and the city centre shops. HSV is about 5 miles out of the city. It is your choice and you must base your decision on the basis of cost and which environment suits you better.

    HSV would be alright, but not having an en-suite doesn't sound appealing at all. £150 per week is a lot of money, but it's somewhere I can stay for my entire three years and it has so much more luxuries included in it. Even though I could do with the money from HSV, I think I'll just go to Queen Mary's.
