    The staff answering the clearing phone line at Newcastle will know this.

    Anyone else will be guessing

    Hi Soph,

    If you've already applied for accommodation at Newcastle then you won't have to fill the application form in again. You're still guaranteed accommodation, however your application will be processed after students who meet the conditions of their offer. Your preferences will still be taken into account, but there will be a much more limited selection of sites.

    There's more info about accommodation for students coming in through Clearing here.

    Hope that helps!

    Just to add that last year there were people entering via Clearing who were offered accommodation which was my son's first choice. He was taking up his Firm offer and was offered his his third choice on results day (which was still a good fit)... these things work in mysterious ways because accommodation isn't all allocated in one go but in waves (gender will make a difference to for achieving balance)

    So don't assume you can't get accommodation that suits you best just because you are a Clearing entrant, at Newcastle anyway.
