Housing waitlist

So we are 3 weeks away from move in day and UB still hasn’t gotten back to me about housing. I applied for their “wait-list” back in early July and got an update saying they would start offering housing for people on the waitlist the first week of august but still haven’t heard anything back. A couple of my friends got offers…I emailed them several times and called their office a couple times but they weren’t “available”. I was just wondering if anyone else who was on the waitlist got offers or should I look for an apartment? I’m sorry this is just frustrating
