    Obviously things are going to take a while to reach Prague so keep your patience and you'll get everything!

    The accommodation shouldn't be affected by the differences in the universities since they share accommodation. Despite being a Manchester student I'm going to be in UMIST accommodation, for example.

    My friend is going to UMIST and hadn't got anything throught the post so he kept phoning them up. They didn't actually allocate him to any accommodation until last thursday and he got his first choice (richmond park) and i got my accommodation about 2 weeks ago and ended up with my 3rd and we both applied to the same places i think

    Anyway if you really want to find out just phone and actually hold until you can speak to someone.

    I had that down as my second choice. Seemed quite nice from the accommodation brochure...you definitely get a washbasin, Internet and phone in your room.

    En suite really isn't everything! Oak House is great and u still have a bathroom and toilet between 4 people...OK, it's not as modern as richmond park but it's still much better than a lot of accomodation ive visited in other unis! I promise you'll have a great time there! Don't get down about the richmond park situation!

    I didn't realise I had to send my accomodation contract straight back! I'm such a mong! Its been sat on my windowledge for about a week now. I just phoned them up, they've reallocated my room, but they're going to try and get me another room in Bowden court.

    I'm such a mong!

    Or email them at [email protected] ... thats what my mum did as I was away on my gap year and had to sign the contract... they keep your place then. The email address should be with your accomodation letter if not post a message and I'll have a look for you in my stuff.
