Sample 1 You Have Been Offered a Place at A University and Wish to Find Suitable Accommodation
Dear Sir or Madam,
I am writing to inform you that I have been admitted to the university and need a place to reside there. It is my humble request to arrange it somewhere in the university.
Let me inform you that a university dormitory is my first preference. If it is not possible, a youth hostel would be suitable. It will be convenient for me to be close to the university.
Furthermore, I am a graduate of psychology and further seek my future in the same branch. I live in a rural area, which is far, miles away from the university campus.
Besides, vegetarian food in meals is my first requirement. I have an allergy to cheese, so make sure the meals do not contain it. Also, I would like to live on the ground floor as I have a problem moving to and from due to a fracture in my leg.
Would you be kind enough to supply me with the information about the monthly rent? Is it possible to pay quarterly to free me from the worrying situation of paying regularly? What things did I need to submit as proof to ensure my place?
I look forward to hearing from you.
Sample 2 You Have Been Offered a Place at A University and Wish to Find Suitable Accommodation
Dear Accommodation Officer,
I am writing to enquire about the accommodation options available for students at your university. I have recently been offered a place to study at your esteemed institution, and I am excited to start this new chapter of my life. However, before I can fully commit to the offer, I would like to ensure that I have a suitable place to stay during my studies.
Ideally, I am looking for a single room in a shared apartment or house with other students. Living with other students will give me the opportunity to socialize and make new friends, and I believe that it will help me settle into university life more easily. I am also open to the possibility of living in student halls or dormitories as long as they offer a comfortable and safe environment.
As for myself, I am a 20-year-old female from the United States, and I will be starting my undergraduate degree in psychology this fall. I am a responsible and tidy person, and I like to keep my living space clean and organized. I am also a non-smoker, and I do not have any pets.
In terms of special requirements, I would prefer a room that is quiet and conducive to studying. I am a conscientious student, and I take my studies seriously, so it is important to me that I have a peaceful environment in which to focus. Additionally, I have some dietary restrictions due to a medical condition, so I would appreciate it if the accommodation options available could take this into consideration.
Finally, I would like to mention that I am very excited to join the student community at your university. I am eager to get involved in extracurricular activities and make the most of my university experience. I hope that you will be able to provide me with some suitable accommodation options that will allow me to do just that.
Thank you for your time and assistance.
