    Hi guys!

    I'm a future Portsmouth student but I am finding myself in a little bit of mess. Basically, today I recieved my offer for a room in a hall of residence. All good and all, but they mispelled my last name Not in a horrible way, just switched two letters between then. Who do I contact to solve this? Student housing? I know it might sound like a little thing to worry about, but in another letter they send me there was the same mistake and I am thinking that this is afterall a contract, so the names must be correctly spelled. :eek3:

    Best thing to do is to either ring them or email them on the contact details on the letter/contract and say that they have mispelt your name and ask whether it's important - if it is they'll send you a new copy with the corrections. If not they'll just ask you to send in your current mispelt version contract.
    What halls did you get by the way? I'm still waiting to hear!

    is it only the communications from student housing that have the incorrect spelling? or it it everything the uni has sent? if its just your housing you need to inform student housing. if its everything you should contact your departments admissions office AND student housing.
