    I've only just received my offer for child nursing at nottingham and went straight on the accommodation but there are no ensuite rooms left in broadgate, surely this is unfair as i couldn't apply earlier cus I didn't have my interview until monday 30th april and just got my offer today. Any ideas where I can apply for ensuite accommodation

    Congratulations! I think Raleigh Park does ensuite, it's also situated between the two hospitals which is helpful for nursing (I have an offer for child branch MNursSci )

    St peters court. I've been offered an ensuite there. Its £106 per week but included in that is a free hopper bus to the city and the uni. Theres also a gym on sight which is only £10 for the whole year.

    En-suite at Raleigh Park is for post-grads only, so you wouldn't be able to have one there until you're on the final year of your course as, if I'm not wrong, Nursing Science Masters is three years UG and a year PG rolled into one course?

    Broadgate only has a very small number of en-suites available and the site is arguably the most popular. St. Peter's Court, as mentioned, is all en-suite and will still have spaces at the moment.

    I just declined my offer from brodgate park because i realised the rooms are so tiny and i wanted an ensuite but i'm looking to apply again for st. peters court but i'm just really worried about the distance but the hopper bus to university park is running so i hope it won't be a problem. I'm just worried they won't have any rooms left i'm really late in all of this :/

    It really isn't that far from the uni or the city centre...probably about 25 minutes walk each way.

    There should also be loads of rooms left.

    Bus can be a bit of a problem too- especially the 8.40 which usually fills up and leaves because there is not enough space on it for all the people waiting. Obviously the place has some plus points like not having to move all your stuff out at the end of term.
    So you're saying not to go to SPC because the 8.40 bus fills up before you get there?! The solution to that is get to the stop earlier or get to UP an alternative way.

    The gym being a few years old is hardly an issue, especially seeing as it's included for free. If you still feel that a few years is out of date then use one on campus instead.

    I'm pretty sure there's still many places, my flat hasn't been filled yet for a start

    Yup, block A at SPC.

    As said, it won't be full...no flats have been completely filled yet as far as we all know.

    It's easy to be too optimistic about these things. I've given you my honest opinion. Let me know if you still feel this positive when you miss a 9am lecture because the bus is too full and you didn't want to get the earlier one because it would mean waiting for ages on campus.

    Ages being about 15 minutes?! You can hardly disregard an accommodation option because YOU miss the bus. Don't want to get any other bus then get to the stop earlier and be first on.

    As I have tried to highlight in my previous posts, my opinion is based upon a combination of factors. If you are set on these halls then please do go ahead and book a room there, i'm not trying to stop you.

    Also the gym isn't technically free, you pay a £10 induction charge...
