Manchester guarantees accomodation to everyone before august 31st according to their website. Leeds say they have no guarantee but that you can apply and they're "confident" they ll find you somewhere. Bristol has no guarantee but says that 190/290 people in clearing they were able to give accommodation to in 2017. Loughborough also guarantees it before august 30th. Nottinghams website for clearing accomodation doesn't appear to be working. York says they say nearer the time to results if they can or can't guarantee accommodation. But when you call them all ask what the situation is in case it changes.
I was also wondering this for some similar unis OP.
With Loughborough and Manchester, what are they 'guaranteeing'- a place in halls with first years? or just like a guarantee but you might be living with older years?
