Without accommodation at Nottingham UniversityWatch
Do you have a guarantee that they will provide accomodation (usually for first years and international students if you submit before a certain deadline)? If not you might not get an offer.
I wasn't guaranteed a place at Southampton, and although I was eventually made an offer, by that time I'd already sorted out a place in private halls as I wanted the certainty of knowing I had a place to live. So I understand your frustration, although to be fair, by applying on the 11th September you haven't given them much time really. I'd definitely be on the phone tomorrow if I were you. On a positive note, you may find you can get a discounted place at private halls as some (esp those that usually have a lot of international students) are struggling to fill their rooms.
This is a rant and am trying to find people in similar situations. So I am attending Nottingham University and my course starts tomorrow (Monday) and I haven’t received a response to my accommodation application that was submitted on the 11th of September. I am currently in Nottingham and am staying at a hotel whilst this is all sorted. This is crazy and has been extremely stressful.
