Lindsay hall or court? (Also Bump*)
Otherwise you may have already read this but

  • Consider carefully whether or not you feel able to share a room with someone you don't know before accepting
  • You only pay 50% of the total room cost whilst sharing
  • It will not necessarily be your permanent room
  • You will be offered your own room at the earliest opportunity
  • Temporary shared rooms are single rooms with bunk beds
  • It is not possible to share on a permanent basis
  • Don't bring too many belongings until you have your own room
  • We are unable to indicate how long you will have to share
  • You will only share with a person of the same gender
  • It is important to respect your roommate and their privacy
  • We ask that you do not have guests in your room while you are sharing
  • You may refuse two alternative room offers, but will have to move to the third room we offer you
  • Once you refuse a room, your priority is lowered and you will go to the bottom of the lis
  • Where possible we will offer a room in your current block because we know that you might have made friends, but can’t guarantee this
  • We will email you and your roommate to let you know that a room has become available
  • We recommend that you both go and look at the room
  • You both decide who will move:
    • This may depend on the type of room and what either of you can afford
    • One of you may have friends nearby
  • If one of you accepts the room, you will have 3 days in which to move and you will both need to accept a new contract
  • From the point of accepting a new contract, you will both be charged the full room rate
  • Should you refuse a room offer, it will be offered to another pair of students sharing a room and will be noted on your accommodation records. You should be aware that it may take some time before we can make another room offer to you
  • If you refuse two offers to move, you will be required to move to the third one offered
  • Even if you are not one hundred per cent happy with your room offer, you can accept it and request a room move to your preferred choice of room

It's fairly common at the start of term.
