    no problem I'd start looking at university offered Halls of Residence (just look on the website at accommodation), no where private would let you rent as you need to physically be there to apply...

    There are other student halls companies, i'm going to be moving into Liberty Living - Rosemount halls, it's super super cheap (£60 per week, all bills/communal cleaning included) and really close to both work and uni for me

    I was in a private flat for most of my undergrad degree but all my friends are moving away back into halls I go!

    I'm guessing Liberty living also needs you be physically there?

    Because it's specifically university halls (and not private rent) you don't have to be in the country to view/sign contracts, it's all done online

    Heyy, got accepted for Analytical Chemistry. What is this Liberty House? Does it belong to the University? Because I didn't find anything like that on the website. I'm thinking of Trinity but that sounds interesting. Also does anyone know if they are same gender rooms? Coming from Greece so I have no idea where to stay.

    Can someone tell me when they got their Certificate of Acceptance? I didn't get a straight answer from the Admissions Office. I got a conditional offer, finally uploaded all my documents, but it's really important to know when I will be fully accepted, because I have the accommodation thing to sort out and the prices are going up. Thanks

    So I was told by the international office that I would be getting mine 3 months before my start date. Not sure if that's different for domestic students though..
