No, they havent.
However, I've got a letter from a UCL officer where she sais that 'If you require a CAS document to apply for a student visa, the UCL Admissions Office are sending emails this week regarding the process'.

By the way, has anyone applied for the UCL accomodation? If so have you heard back from them at all?

I sent the application about a month ago and have not yet received even acknowledgent of receipt (though I know DHL delivered it). The website says they should confirm receipt in 4 weeks and I am a bit worried something went wrong ;)

I have. And I've also recieved two acknowledgements: one by e-mail and a 'postcard' by post. And they say that they will 'make me an offer of accommodation in late June'. However I havent got one so far.

I sent in my application for UCL housing by regular mail a few weeks ago, and then e-mailed it as well to meet the June 30th deadline. Your best bet is to give them a call to see whether your application has been received in time. The website states that housing offers will be made in August, so it'll be a while before we can be sure about anything i guess...

Thank you everyone.

Called UCL residences today. They confirmed receiving the application and told me that they will be sending accomodation offers in late July (to those who hold unconditional offers). So are certainly behind on acknowledging applications, but hopefully we will have certainty regarding housing well before September :)

Hello all, can I presume that all of you are international grad students (non UK/EU). The link below seems to indicate that UK/EU students will not be offered any accommodation before term starts, has anyone here applied anyway?

Cheers

Any ideas when one can move in when accepted in accommodation? I read somewhere that it's the last weekend of September which is 24th.-25th. but not so sure about that.

Hi,

I'm gonna study at UCL, too!

I'm from Germany and I've applied for accommodation as well. I called the office and they told me the first time that I have a 50 % chance of getting an offer, on the second call they told me 65-70 % to get an offer.

But actually I'd prefer private housing. Does anyone know other sources for this than gumtree and the UHLS website?

Did you accept your UCL offer and apply for housing before June 30th? Because the website states that you will be guaranteed a spot on campus if you meet those criteria and have not studied in/near London before (check http://www.ucl.ac.uk/prospective-students/accommodation/accommodation/applications/when-to-apply). Assuming you're going for the graduate (LLM) programme ofcourse.

I sent in my housing application just before the deadline (pfew!) so according to the website i should have a 100% chance to get accomodation. Guess I'll give them a call though to see if they think so as well ;)

Well...the next paragraph says:

Graduate students from the UK/EU are strongly advised to seek private sector accommodation. No offer of accommodation will be made before the start of the first term to such students.


This corresponds with the answers given on telephone...I'm afraid, but there seems to be no guarantee, if you're from the EU.

Don't worry, I was asking the same question and just yesterday got an e-mail from the administration saying that no one is made a accommodation offer yet and they will do that in 2 weeks for those with unconditional offers and about 3 weeks for those holding conditional. I was also thinking about looking for a private place to live but probably will do that only if I'm not accepted in one the halls.

Cheers :)

Hey,

I'm going to UCL to do the masters in 2011-2012 as well. Im definately going for private accomodation and was wondering where people would recommend to start looking as it is getting pretty close now. I too was worried about whether being a UK grauate if i would get college halls and then heard it would be alot cheaper to go privately anyway. Any help and avice would be greatly appreciated.
