    King, don't worry about accommodation stuff and all that at the moment because mine hasn't not come through yet either although I do have my registration pack thingy. However I had a bit of a dodgy application aswell because Kent was my insurance but I asked to be released from my Firm so that I could go to Kent instead. Still waiting on student loan aswell because had to be reassessed because of "Change Of Circumstances" (ie. won't be at my original firm choice).

    Oooh! The excitement!!

    Rick.

    same here I didnt get my first choice and had to fill in a "Change Of Circumstances" C01 form a few days ago wonder how long that will be getting sorted out. Is there anything interesting in the registation pack ? any idea if there is a deposit to pay or anything ? I phoned the uni and they said it will be at least a week before I hear anything. Just have to wait now cant wait before we start. Heard the first week is ment to be the best as you dont have any work. Wonder whats happing the first week. Does Kent have a freshers week ?

    must remmber to add name after message keep having to edit them lol !
    must be the excitement of watching the footy tonight another good result for Arsenal 4-1 they won.

    Yeah thats the same as me cos my first choice offered my another course but didn't want to take it. I don't have my registration or accommodation pack either.

    looks like we could get them the day before we move in. Emma when did you get your place mine was only confirmed last Tuesday. Must say I like the looks of the uni they have loads of things even their own nightclub + loads other other stuff. Was well worth going to the openday last Saturday even through it took ages as I am in Aylesbury and had to go by train that day and Victoria Station go closed just as I arrived there due to a bomb scare, a real pain lots of changes on the underground to get to another station to get to Kent. I made it just but it was worth it in the end and was pleased I got there that day. It made me choose it staight away over my other offer Kingston.

    My place was confirmed... last friday i think. I jus wish i knew what accommodation i have! Cos if it's self catering i need to learn to cook...and fast!

    same here I am going to my Sisters in London next week so she can teach me if I have to do it all myself just wish I knew to what they are up to and what I will end up with. Park Wood is nice.

    Well as far as I know the catered halls only offer breakfast, everything else (lunch, dinner etc) you have to pay extra for...so I didn't see the point..thought it would work out a lot more expensive than going self-catering!

    I have got my accommodation sorted - I'm in Lypeatt Court in Park Wood, apparently it's where they put all the comp sci/engineering/geeky people! :rolleyes: Not too bothered really, it's right next to the bar and shop and I'll also be able to park my car

    i got my accommodation stuff through yesterday and, whilst i applied for parkwood, i've been put in Darwin Court self catering houses. Not to worry i guess as i get everything i want and i'm very close to the computer buildings.


    What house are you in Jo?

    I'm going up on the Saturday (18th) although I imagine the majority of people move in on the 19th.
