The guarantee The guarantee

Your guarantee is for a room in University residences (or accommodation otherwise managed by the University), not for a room of a particular type, or necessarily a single room. This means that we cannot guarantee that you will be allocated your preferred residence or type of room, but we promise to do our best. If we do not have enough single rooms to meet demand, you may be offered a twin room to share with another student of the same sex as a temporary measure. Usually, as the term progresses, we are able to offer all guaranteed students a single room of their own.
