I've just been offered an unconditional to UoN for this September which I'm going to accept, and I'm now looking at accomodation. I'm an international student (Australia) and back home almost no one does student accomodation with some exceptions, so I'm not really familiar with how it works. I've looked at the videos online and have got a rough idea of how it operates, but still have a few questions:.
1. When / How do you apply for it?
2. Do you get to choose which "hall/building?" you live in, or is it more of a first in first serve or random assortment?
3. With that, do you get to choose which kind of room you get?
4. Which Halls are generally considered the best or more sociable?
Ideally I'd like to choose a room with an ensuite and bigger bed, but from what I've heard it seems like you just get given a random room? Or do you put down preferences?
Any help / advice is super helpful as I'm a bit lost!
Over the Easter break
