    I recently received an offer from Chester for BBC and have searched about and apparently you don't choose which accommodation you specifically stay in?
    Is this true and can someone explain the process for me please?
    I'm planning on staying in Self Catered and my immediate preference is Grosvenor House.

    Hello, it's true that you can't choose a specific hall to live in. However you can specify the type of accommodation that you would like to live in (such as self-catered, fully-catered, en-suite, standard, etc). Grosvenor House is Studio accommodation (a self-contained flat with kitchen and bathroom) and is currently our only Studio accommodation.

    If you specify Studio accommodation as your preferred accommodation, you will, in effect, be stating a preference for Grosvenor House. Whilst we can't guarantee that you will be placed there (as allocation depends on a number of factors including having Chester as your first choice of study and your distance from Chester) you will be indicating a preference you live there.

    Hope this makes sense, let us know if you have any further questions.
