- This is a thread for all those who want to wallow in self pity.
- For all those that check their emails every 10 minutes.
- For those who go rushing to the letterbox in the morning, in the hope that a juicy accommodation pack has arrived.
- For those that have been brushed off on the telephone to HAS.
- For those who have been having nightmares of living in a flat filled with postgrads and no-one to go to freshers weeks with.
- For those that have nearly turned green all over by hearing people talk about: living in the Vale hotspots, along with moving in dates, finding flatmates on facebook and generally knowing their future.
PLEASE JOIN THIS BABY.
THANK YOU. THE EMO NOW SIGNS OFF.
oh bugger I put it first!!!!! nooooooooooooo I really don't want there. and victoria as my second? what the hell was i thinking?
have all the offers for mason redevelopment and oakley court gone out?
are you able to change at all?
lol my application was submitted on the 27th may, day before it closed.
I am going to have no social life whatsoever :[
That's so not true about the social life thing. Besides, its as social as you make it, halls has got nothing to do with it. >_>
i wouldn't mind jarratt hall..........i think.
they are putting students in Victoria....so you may end up there.
can't a team of them sit down and spend an intensive day allocating rooms for us all? or have a computer do it for them? i swear, it's not THAT complicated is it?
well yes but 35 hour weeks plus possibly in halls with mainly second and third year students? would they put all the first years together?
and I can't afford jarratt hall, my mum changed her mind on giving me money lol would that be a good enough reason for them to put me somewhere else?
i wouldn't mind vicoria so much, the location is v good in my opinion as a local but theres meant to be lots of international students. i really want oakley me thinks.
will just have to sit tight, it's not the end of the world i guess
Well, you're not entitled to a room because you're not covered by the guarantee, but shrug. And to leave enough rooms for you and other clearing students, they should ignore some of the firm people? That's what you're implying. Which is just wrong, as it says in every website/prospectus/leaflet, its first come first serve.
And believe me, theyre more organised than a lot of other universities. In my group of friends, im the only one who's heard about accommodation. I assume by 'cocking up firm applications' you mean people not getting their choices? Hardly HAS's fault. They only have a certain amount of rooms and allocate them as quickly as possible.
Im not saying you cant have a fun freshers week, the opposite in fact. Freshers should be awesome. But what Im saying is that HAS are trying their hardest, and people like you complaining etc dont help things. Plus, you cant really tell them how to do things unless you're in their situation. You dont know how hard theyre working, what theyve got to do etc.
lmao. this thread was a light-hearted one for people who haven't yet got accommodation, to have a little moan.
no need to be self-righteous. no need to be rude. you're not in my position so don't give any lectures!
Wtf?! Biased remarks?!
One, he was in your position last year, so that would cancel out any bias, as he knows what you're going through and probably had some of the same thoughts as you.
But seriously, instead of pissing and moaning about it all, grow up and realise that the logistics involved are huuuuuge and that your single application probably isnt the most important thing to them at this moment in time.
