Is anyone else in this position?

It's the Univeresity of Leeds. She basically got yet another holding email on Saturday. I know the University is working hard to help all the students. Should we be looking at finding accomodation privately do you think? Or is this to be expected?

We are all getting a bit stressed about it.
Many thanks.

I wouldn't worry too much. If she's gone through clearing then they're probably still allocating as they'll have to wait for firm offers to accept their accommodation place before they know what's still available. There was another thread a few days ago where those going with their firm at Leeds had only just received accommodation allocation, so clearing ones are going to be even later.

Thanks LadyPenelope, I guess we have to be patient for a bit longer. Dd is getting quite stressed about it. My feeling is that the University is working really hard to place students (the acccomodation office answered the phone after 5 pm on Saturday!) but they are overwhelmed for whatever reason this year.

I'm pretty sure Leeds guarantees accommodation for all first years. I know it's a worry but I'm sure it will all work out soon. My dd is at Leeds & was in accommodation with lots of last minute people last year & it worked out really well
