    When I started I had to send my degree transcript to my department and when they confirmed my place, I got my accommodation a couple of days later.
    I'm not sure if that was only my course though, you should contact either the accommodation office or your department to see what the situation is.

    All 3 years I lived in ensuite PG/mature spaces soon appeared, even if they weren't there to begin with...sure it wont make that much difference (particularly as mature students for undergrad may not have had results).

    As far as I was aware, PG students had first pickings on accommodation did they not? I'm intending to return to Halls for my Masters year when it comes round to it as I don't know all that many people on combined honours courses :p:

    Can you do that on an undergraduate masters unless you have special circumstances? (as your sig says MMath)

    Well I don't know really, though it was possible to stay in Halls for a second year if I felt the need to, I know of two people in my old flat who did just that.

    I think you can apply (decisions made Jan/Feb), but it's only guaranteed to non-EU international students and first years...so may be possible (just not guaranteed like if you were going onto a postgrad masters).

    As halls places have increased over the past few years it is now possible for anyone to stay in halls after their first year, they advertise specifically to attract non first years in. Yes its not guaranteed but the vast majority of those applying before the deadline get it (I worked for the uni for 2.5 years).

    That's very interesting to know...(the info re: halls places).
