    Nice :-). Well I'm pretty sure it'll be south courts. My ex lived in the towers and I think they're too noisy/ full of idiots. The houses were wayyyy too quite and the Quays or whatever it's called is too far (I'm lazy xD).

    What about you?

    Plenty of idiots everywhere, you won't escape them by avoiding the towers.

    I realise this. Though it seems like the general consensus for choosing to live in the towers is to party all the time (they're even advertised as the party accommodation almost, on the accomodation website :/). I'd just rather not get stuck with people like that.

    Also, whilst there's idiots everywhere, there's considerably more idiots in a flat of 16 ;p.

    hopefully going to try for south towers, as you get nice social life there but without having to share with 15 others

    If you're at the south towers you will be sharing facilities with 15 others.

    I don't think they have towers with so few people at all. The accommodation site says 13 to 16 people for towers. :/

    When you apply you rank them in order of preference, including information about whether you would like a smoking or same-sex flat and they try to accommodate everyone as best as possible. It is always better to apply early, FCFS or not. It certainly isn't random.

    When you secure your accommodation is largely irrelevant - the same assurance your friends have will be afforded you as well and in practice it makes no difference. I wouldn't worry too much, you have plenty of time to research it if you so wish.

    Hi, my name is Jennifer. I'm *hopefully* going to be studying Biochemistry at the University of Essex in October. I'll be staying at the Colchester Campus. My insurance choice is Wolverhampton University. I'd like to get to know a few people before I go if possible, though.

    Might be worth seeing if there are any groups on facebook, you'll share most of first year with the biomeds.
