Yesterday I got my accommodation offer for uni!
I knew I was getting it sometime yesterday, but I didn’t know exactly when. It was quite nerve wrecking to see people (in this big Facebook group with all new undergraduate students) get offers when you’re still waiting.
The room offers were sent out in random batches, so you didn’t know when you were getting yours. I finally got mine at 7pm and I was so excited!
I ended up having my third choice (out of eight) so I was pretty happy. I really wanted self-catered and en-suite, which I both got.
I’ll be on the newer part of campus, which is a bit away from the main part, but not far at all. It’s a bit more quiet, which I think I’m going to really enjoy. The more I think about it the more I like it that I got this accommodation instead of my frist choice for the main campus.
It has been quite weird to get a room offer. We’ve now paid an advancement for it too, which makes it very real all of a sudden. It’s still about a month and a half away, but it’s getting very close, which is difficult to comprehend.
I’m really glad I’ve got a friend who is also going to study in the UK so we can freak out together!
Have a nice day!
