    Ive come through clearing and just been offered this accommodation, Accommodation: Room 29 Staircase P Clifton Hall Brunel University UB8 3PH

    Clifton Hall any good?, whats its reputation like?
    Can I ask a few questions? It's so I can see how long it'll take for me to get my accommodation sorted out too, if you don't mind.

    - When did you get accepted on UCAS track?
    - How long did you have to wait before applying for accommodation?
    - Did you apply online or through the phone?

    Thank you!

    Got a nice rug and got some soft cushions for my bed plus taking own duvet covers (even though Brunel provide and wash them) so will have to wash own sheets, but also got nice posters. Unsure about the fairy lights posted by someone earlier, theyre usually on the banned list with candles.

    That was me lol I saw that ,but I asked my sister when she was at first year if anyone took battery powered fairylights and she said she saw loads. If they still wont allow me I'll just put them in my room at home..I'm redecorating anyway.

    The stuff you got for your room sounds really good. Gives me a couple of ideas.

    Just got a text to check my inbox as it said i had been allocated a room and i just need to accept it. The only thing is there is nothing in my inbox and the deadline to reply in 1st of September (this Tuesday). With a bank holiday and all that, i really don't want to leave it to the last day.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Got my room assigned for Clifton the other day, and I had a quick look on the floor plan. Looks as though it's 11 rooms and only 1 shower (because the floor has 1 bath instead). That seems a bit excessive?! Not sure I'm going to be able to put up with sharing a shower with 11 people.

    Surely that can't be right? Does it mean 1 group of shower rooms or something maybe?

    I'm afraid it will be like that, 11 people sharing 1 bathroom, 1 shower, 1 toilets. Some floors have 2 showers and 2 toilets though.. if it bothers you that much you can try and swap with someone else from another floor if they're willing to.

    I'm in Clifton Hall too, I called them to see If I could change but no En-suites were available. The Bathrooms look disgusting, how can It be that 11 people share 1 toilet,Bath,Shower, I definitely won't be having a bath! I can't even see how 11 people share a tiny little kitchen, do you have to share Fridges & Cupboards? I'm so annoyed

    Have you been there and looked round by the way?

    I've got same worries as you, just a shame it's a bank holiday weekend I havn't been able to sort anything out. Just need to decide if I'm going to reject my halls choice and see if I can find a house/flat share with some Brunel students.

    Would have liked to stay on campus in halls but I can't see it being that great in any of the older halls. To a certain extent I can put up with the noise and things, I just don't think I can cope with sharing with that many people. It's bound to present tons of problems.
