    can't do much I'm afraid, you'd be much better off looking for some mates to get into private accommodation remotely close to uni, than thinking about cheating your way up the waiting lists. IMO. :yep:

    Generally, Second years don't qualify for halls.

    Could you not try to rent privately? Gumtree etc...

    First years are the one's guaranteed places in halls. You may never get one.

    thanks, all of my friends have got their houses now and theres no room ... the reason why i want halls is because it is far safer as there is security all the time on campus which i need after something i went throught last year, which is why i can not see my self living off campus by myself...

    try and find a private rent, alternatively tell the accomodation office why you want to be in halls. TBH unless you are in immediate danger living off campus then i doubt they will see it any different to other 2nd years.
