So... I haven't met the entry requirements for my first university of choice, which means I have to with my insurance choice (which is Nottingham Trent). The trouble is I haven't booked any student accommodation, and on the NTU student accommodation website it says that the only way I could book accommodation is by having a NTU login and password.

... Here is the problem, I can only get a NTU password if it was my first choice on the UCAS track, and like I said earlier its my insurance choice. What do I do? I need to move out by September 4th out of my current property.

Have your first choice said that they ll be rejecting you yet? Finding private accomodation in under a month is doable.

It sounds like you're not guaranteed accommodation at Trent because you didn't Firm them, but nevertheless it is definitely worth phoning their accommodation office to discuss your options (if you have been declined by your Firm choice uni so you are definitely going there). After all, not everyone who Firmed them will have got in, so they will have spaces becoming available after A level results day on Thursday. Make sure you phone them early in the week - preferably on Monday before it gets too busy.

Hi
I have student accommodation close to NTU called Radford Mill. There’s a possibility I might change Univeristy after results day (Thursday). If you want, can you please send me your number and I will let you know if I won’t need the accommodation anymore so you could replace me. Thanks
Is it still available?
