PQ - I was walking past Gower the other day and looked up and it did look as though there was so little life going on up there, there HAD to be some empty flats. The new online system should be up this year? My boyfriend is starting in 05 so I wonder what that'll mean for him..
In the subject of accomadation, PQ, perhaps you could help me. Soton is almost definately going to be my insurance for English, but i read in the prospectus that they don't guarentee accomadation unless you put them as your first choice. Do you think this will be much of a problem? Are you likely to be given accomadation anyway, and if you are, are you just put in the worst one?
I know I'm not PQ but when I went to Soton last week they gave me an accommodation guide which says "If you nominate Southampton as your insurance choice we guarantee to offer you a room in a University owned, managed or nominated residence within the first four weeks of the start of Session. Where places are not immediately available in Hall, students...living outside the City boundaries, details of a Lodgings Provider willing to make an arrangementfor you to lodge with them on a short term basis will be sent to you." There is "LodgeSoc, a student-run society dedicated to ensure that all students in lodgings take an active role in student life from day one."
