    Finally , I made my decision from offers of surrey,kings,leicester.dundee,gl asgow and manchester . I selected MANCHESTER!!!


    Question about halls

    I have applied for
    1 ) weston halls en-suite.
    2 ) George Kenyon Hall (university place hall ) En-suite
    3 ) Opal Hall en-suite

    I am international PG student confirmed starting in sep 09.

    Does anyone think i can still get a room there in any on the three at city campus, considering that its late?
    Also what is the processing time and i mean real time not mentioned
    one !

    Anyone in the same boat heading to manchester ?

    cheers ppl:woo:

    Well seeing as you're international you will definitely get a place in halls, but your late application means there's not such a great chance you'll get one of your top three (seeing as they're all high demand places). Best things is just to wait and see. And it's impossible to tell how long they will take processing your application, they seem to vary so much.

    you'll probably get weston, I don't think it's that high in demand. there is an accommodation thread already, also, where you might find some more information.

    Why? I didn't think the vast majority of places were assigned until after results day? I haven't applied for accommodation yet as I was under the impression that places weren't assigned on a first-come-first-served basis.

    Well many people have already had their accomodation offers... and they do advise you not to apply to 3 ensuite choices as they're high high demand.

    Don't all of the people who have received accommodation offers already hold unconditional offers to start in September though? Surely they aren't giving out accommodation offers to people with only conditional offers already?

    Should I be worried now since all my choices are en-suite?

    Yeah, and the OP states he is unconditional (well he says confirmed, seems to be the same thing). They only allocate a certain amount of the key places to unconditionals, they can't go handing them all out or they'd all be full up before the conditional people get a chance.

    What's to worry about? And even if you worry, there's nothing you can do about it now. You're unconditional, international and postgrad, you're high on the list to get your places, so please don't worry. So many people want en suite and don't get it, then wonder what the fuss was about (me included in this!).

    Internationals and PGs (as far as I know) are guaranteed accommodation so you'll be fine

    Well the popular halls are en-suite + self catered + city campus . So most of them are already taken by students who applied early .

    I wouldn't worry too much about getting a room, Manchester uni promises (or at least to) to provide accommodation to all first year students, though obviously it might not be your first choice. And you're not really that late. Anyway you have a place, so congrats!
