Accommodation Providers: Are You Ready For Clearing?


Today is one of the most important in the student Calendar – the day that 416, 310 new students have had their university places confirmed. As you’ll well know this will mean a flurry of excited accepted applicants rushing to get a place in their preferred accommodation and a myriad of new enquiries scoping out what’s on offer. As accommodation providers start to get their numbers confirmed ready for those with allocated places, it’s time to prepare for last minute bookings from the 129,20 students eligible for clearing.
