    Hi there,

    Are you a post-grad? If so, would you mind telling me how much your 52 week fees are? I've just received an offer I can't afford so I'm trying to see what the going rate is this year.

    Thanks

    Thanks for your help, but I already know what the "official" prices of the halls are.

    Also, on the post-grad application form, there's no box saying "give me the cheapest room possible" which you can tick. They just give you what they think is best, in line with a few questions regarding preferences.

    cheers anyway

    hmm I just know it from the undergraduate form that you can write some extra notes down and you could just mention that you need cheaper accomodation because you cant afford it.

    It's a postgrad-only catered residence. It's located across from the Cathedral, further along than most students go everyday (usually as far as the Buchanan and that's it).

    I'm assigned #31, but I had read somewhere that the numbers are just the order in which we're offered a place and we don't get our actual room assignments 'til we arrive. There are only 48 of us anyway, so we can't be that far from each other! Have you seen pictures of the dining room? It's unbelievable! (If you haven't just google image "deans court dining" and it's the first picture that comes up).

    Then you contact accom services and make a polite request. They are in my experience, quite accommodating.

    Can you be a subwarden for a hall? In catered halls you get free rent (often a flat), free food in exhange for being responsible etc
