Hey everyone, seeing as I messed up my first year at a different uni, I've decided to transfer to Man Met but it has been a bit of a nightmare. I finally have my MMU student number so can apply for accomodation, but it seems I have to wait a few days whilst I am put onto the system.

I was just wondering what the chances of living in Cambridge or Cavendish Halls would be...or am I too late and have no chance of being offered?

Thanks for the help!

If you don't get MMU uni accom there's plenty of private halls still advertising rooms.

Thanks for the help, I haven't looked at private accomodation yet. I just really liked sharing with a lot of people last year, so Cavendish Halls seemed alright!

I hope I'm not too late! :mad: Does anyone think I have a chance?

i think you'll be alright, i mean, there will be lots of people that won't be able to apply for accomodation until august with results say if it's an insurance choice or whatever, and also people who live within 30 miles of the uni can't live in the uni halls so both of these are going to up your chance. i mean between them (cambridge and cavendish) there's like near on 1400 rooms, i think you should be okay, but don't quote me on that! good luck x

There are lots and lots of private places which just means you dont have to apply through the university, you do it yourself.

They're also cheaper for the most part.

I think your chances of getting into cambridge or cavendish are pretty low, you'll be able to get in somewhere I imagine but I would expect to be told that you will be put on a few waiting lists

I put Grosvenor Halls as my first choice last year but the uni messed up my application and didn't realise I needed accommodation until about this time last year, I ended up in Wilmslow Park which wasn't one of my choices so I take it the All Saints halls were full. But like everyone's said, there's always rooms in private halls so they'll sort something out for you, I wouldn't worry about it.

There will be plenty of people on results day who have accomodation but choose not to come/go to Manchester Met, and the uni has to fill those halls somehow. Email them and ask about availability, and if there is little to choose from, wait until results day (even if you aren't actually getting results) and call or email about availability then, you should have more choice IMO.

Thanks everyone. I guess the only thing I can do is wait and hope for the best, nothing I can do to change it. :no:
