I've applied for Cardiff through clearing and I'm applying for accommodation however I can't pick a specific accommodation? Does this mean the accommodation is going to be picked for me? This isn't really ideal...

I'm going to Cardiff as well. it was my first choice so I picked my accommodation in may but I got my 3rd choice. I genuinely haven't heard of anyone this year who got their 1st choice so if it makes you feel better you definitely won't be the only one to be upset with your accommodation. what are you studying? we might meet eachother

I'm doing French and Spanish. my name's Rosie and I'm staying in a student house on Colum road (number 100). my real name is Rosie btw. I think it's just that there really isn't that much to choose from so you just get what you're given I'm afraid.

From what I’ve read, if you go through clearing you don’t get to pick specific accommodation but you get to choose things that are priorities for you and they’ll try to give you accommodation that matches your specifications as closely as possible. As has been said above, you wouldn’t be given the accommodation you wanted anyway so you’re not in too much of a dissimilar position to those who picked Cardiff as their firm choice.

Hi, my name is Caitlin and I'm also studying Spanish and French. You're so lucky that you managed to get Colum road! I was literally given my last choice that's by Roath so I'm not impressed at all

Hi! Which halls were you assigned? Is there any chance you’d want to swap? I’m also really unhappy with my accommodation x
