Is anyone else still waiting to hear from UCL about accommodation?

I know people who were told where they're going to be staying days ago but I still haven't heard from UCL, stating to get worried I'll get a s***** room?

Same situation. I emailed them and they said it was "normal" - but I'm worried anyway. Plus I am from Italy, so I can't go there and ask in person.

Normal as in normal that they haven't told us yet? It seems excessively negligent for them not to even tell us they haven't got a room so we have to find our own about 3 weeks before we start. Ipcdc3, if you'd like I can post an update here after I go on Monday.

if it was your insurance and you aren't close enough to commute you should get onto a waiting list for private accommodation just incase

I'm not looking forward to dealing with their admin for the next 3 years. I went to their accommodation office a couple of weeks ago and checked in person, they said I was definitely on the list and was guaranteed accommodation but Idk what type yet, and uni stsrts in only 2 weeks. They also still haven't sorted out my fee status

Yes, normal in that way. I should have guaranteed accommodation, so I am not as worried as you are, but I'd definitely appreciate it if you could post an update on Monday! Thank you very much!

Insurance, so I know that firm people should get it before me, but still, only 3 weeks left and not a peep confirming that they do or don't have accommodation for me is a bit preposterous, since even renting private accommodation takes time.

Damn, I haven't even been guaranteed that much. Looks like I'll be taking the early train on Monday.

If any of you guys is still looking for an accommodation, I have a room in Station Court London for about 185pound a week. It is a full-year booking, that means it will last 51 weeks, starting from september the 14th, so all in all 9450 pounds the year. It includes a kitchen pack with 20 items such as pots, plates etc. and a bedding pack. Commuting to London centre will take about 20min. If you are interested, you can take over my tenancy agreement, which would help me a lot, as I would have to pay the full rent even though I won't be living there. Feel free to ask for any further information!

Ok so basically apparently it's UCL policy just to leave insurance students in the fog. The lady I spoke to said that unless you're under 18 on the 23rd or have a medical condition, you have to find your own place. I'm still a bit mad about that as their website is so vague about this, just saying "it's not guarenteed". But apparently it's always been this way.

But apparently the leftover rooms in intercollegiate halls are up for grabs on the UoL website from tomorrow at 10 am to Wednesday at 10 am. We just have to apply online and we should hear back from them in a week if we're successful. UCL halls themselves open to application on the 23rd.
