    The meaning of phrases

    Does "in accommodation with" and "in accommodation to" mean "cooperation" and "suitable" repectively in the following sentences?


    Living in accommodation with other students can give you a great start at university.

    This new service is provided to offer additional choices in accommodation to students studying, or enrolling to study, at the Hobart and Launceston campuses.

    Try definition 1 here.

    In fact, a lot of the questions you have been posting about 'accommodation' could be answered by looking up the word in several of the dictionaries here.

    Hello, Shamisiyan.
    I think you are misreading those sentences.
    "in accommodation with..." and "in accommodation to..." do look like fixed phrases.
    However, they are not.

    Living / in accommodation / with other students / can give you a great start at university.

    This new service is provided / to offer(=give) additional choices in(=about) accommodation / to students studying, or enrolling to study...

    Do you see what I mean?
