    Hello,

    I just wanted to ask how UEA choose if you get your first choice of accommodation?
    I also wondered how they organise the flats, like who you are put with?

    Thank you.

    Unlike some universities, our accommodation has a mix of students studying a variety of courses, meaning you get to know people away from the subject you have chosen to study. You could be a Nursing student, living with Art History, Pharmacy, and Psychology students. You get a broad mix living in each block

    With regards to the Accommodation Preference Form you rank each of our accommodation blocks based on preference, so you'll put down which ever block you want as your first choice. We try to match you up to your first choice. If not possible then we work our way down the list. The Accommodation Office's aim is always to try and get people their first choice, and they often have considerable success. If I recall previously the stats have been 80% get their first choice, 90% get a choice from their Top 3.

    Any questions do email [email protected] and they can advise
