My daughter is starting Performers in Sept and we have been looking for months but a house went up on Spare Room recently and it is currently being re-furbished and it will be taking 6 students and it's done through an estate agent so I have her name down there - my daughter has posted numerous times on the freshers page but never gets any responses from anyone except to say they are sorted so don't give up - as she's only turned 17 and doesn't drive I want her as near the college too to save on travel costs as well so this house is about a 20 min walk and there is a 2nd house going to be right beside it with 5 rooms so it's on spare room the house with the 6 doubles if you email them there might be some rooms left - they are going to send me pictures/virtual video when it's ready and I've found the estate agent very good

Yes that's the one - message them quickly as I think there are a few who have contacted them about this house

Does anyone know of people still holding several places or are places pretty much set now? Found out roughly where my dd is on bird lists this morning and wonder how much movement there may still be.

I'd say a few might still be holding places but I'd say the majority have made a decision at this stage - I know my daughter and all her friends have decided on their colleges at this stage - one of her acquaintances heard they got a Dada from Bird this morning and she only auditioned during lockdown via video link so things are still moving there.

Ah was that off the reserve list or straight from audition? My dd is on the reserve for a dada place too and is she taking it?

No don't think it was straight from audition -- so must have been the reserve list - hope you get some good news soon

I am wondering if a lot of people may be hanging on to more than one offer to see which colleges go back and in what form in sept. I know some have suggested a mix of zoom and hopefully socially distanced, smaller groups. This may mean we get some news on what can happen in sept people give up other places?
