    If you got catered when you asked for self-catered then I'm not sure how many people there will be in the opposite situation where they asked for catered but got self-catered. The UCL Accommodation Office is utterly useless. Rude and treats you with contempt. I'm not convinced they actually read your application.

    I support your post. They are not helpful at all.

    I totally agree. I put down proximity to campus as my priority and they assigned me to basically the farthest building from campus. And I submitted the housing form in March...not like it was late or anything. The accommodation office literally does SUCH a bad job with everyone's application I can only assume it's intentional. There's no possible way anyone could do this bad a job at anything purely from incompetence. I think you basically have to assume that the staff in the Accommodation office spend their days reading though applications and laughing their heads off about how much they're screwing each student over by doing the exact opposite of what they request.
