    I was wondering if it's done randomly or on a first come first served basis? Some people advise don't even bother to apply for the most popular accommodations as they're so over subscribed so just wondering how it works.

    It's not first come first served as applications open on the 1st of November until next July, so not fair on those who get later offers
    If it's oversubscribed i.e. CV, on your application you rank importance of certain aspects i.e. close to uni or having an ensuite
    If they cant put you in your first choice they'll place you based on that ranking, so if you put ensuite as most important you'll probably be placed in Oxley
    My recommendation is to put Leodis - Ensuite, 15 minute walk uphill to Parkinson, never too oversubscribed
