    Yeah same here. I rang up and they've put me on the waiting list for cancellations. I don't want to get private accommodation in case a room in halls becomes available, so I may have to commute until I get a room. I'm a bit worried about what freshers week will be like if I'm not in a flat

    Was Birmingham your insurance, or did you go through clearing?

    Yeh was my insurance, and you? I'm sure freshers can't be much worse as long as you're living with a few mates

    Yeah it was my insurance too, I firmed Bath. I'm torn between looking for houses and people to share with or holding out for a cancellation. What are you thinking of doing?

    It seems crazy to me that they can offer all these places to people and yet have no way of accommodating you!! It smacks of money grabbing to me. My daughter is in the same boat, good luck in your search

    I'm looking for someone to take over my accommodation, I'm currently at Cardinal House through City Accommodation for Students on Bridge Road in Birmingham. It's a suite with a double bed and an en suite with a kitchen inside the room for only £115 a week. I'm selling due to wanting to drop out and go back home, but need someone to replace me as a tenant. Anyone interested?If studying at Birmingham city or university of Birmingham it's a 10 minute drive, 40 minute walk, 20 minute bus or 3 minute train to New Street. Thankyou!

    Most flats I know have some spaces left so it's weird, my flat in Tennis Courts has 6 rooms but 4 people.
