    I'm glad I'm not the only mature applying for halls then! Where are you from?
    I'm also 'mature'.. just 21! :/ I'm debating about accommodation too, think parkside is my favourite. But also some one I know who has graduated now recommends Teesside House, http://www.campuslifestyle.com/teesside.htm. Its new private flats, I've been for a look round n it looks lush! its en suit and pretty much the same price as uni accommodation; but probably a bit quieter and fewer freshers if thats what anyone is looking for. only things putting me off is that its a 52week contract and it sounds like you'd only really get to know the 4/5 people on your floor.. dilema!

    I agree, I was very impressed by the quality of the Uni. Everyone's been negative about me going there, I just really want to show them around it so they can see how good it is, haha.

    That's handy, I'm a Londoner living in Leeds so it's a bit of a journey for me either way ha.
    This is exactly why I am slightly regretting making them my firm (BSc (Hons) Computer Science, to be specific). It was mainly the interview day that won me over, something about the place made me feel welcome than any of the other universities I had visited. I recently begun researching the university and surprisingly it all seems to be very negative, it's really putting me off despite the feelings I had on the day. Even having told people about my decision they were initially surprised.

    I'm not sure what to do . Is it not possible to have my firm/insurances changed?

    Yeh, I've been looking at Parkside too, or King Edwards Square. From past experience I think living in private accommodation would be a no no for me! I did that in Sheffield and it was pretty isolated and like you said, you only really get to know a few people. Decisions decisions!

    I sort of agree, the interview won me over but all my friends are telling me I should've firmed a different Uni. I've heard very mixed reviews some people love it and rave about it and some people say it's just where people go to "put off the real world for another three years."

    I'm not sure if you can change your firm/insurance. You'd have to ask one of the UCAS people that. But my advice would be to try and change if you're not happy with your choice. There's no point going somewhere if you're not happy with it. I'm slightly more positive because I've heard nothing but good reviews about the course I'm doing, but I can see why you have doubts.

    It's the city, more than anything else, that's putting me off. Many people have said it's grim, and I sort of got that impression on the day. It's a shame because 99% of the locals I spoke to seemed like lovely folk. But good luck with whatever you do, mate.

    Thanks. The area doesn't bother me, I live here after all . Teesside University is right on my doorstep. I just kinda wish I had went with one of my much further away options, such as Liverpool University. People I know who studied CS at Teesside have nothing negative to say, even few of my own teachers have nothing but praise for the School of Computing.

    haha, it doesn't seem too bad, but someone on here said I should learn self defence before I go...that terrified me a little bit..haha.

    But, I wish you luck with it, mate.

    Hey just firmed teesside computer games programming,

    little bit worried about the area but im guessing if you stay in groups there won't be any real trouble :P

    Not sure where to go for accommodation, en suits mean you meet fewer people as you share with people on your course usually but obviously it means you have more privacy but non-en suits get you to mix more with other students.

    Anyone else got any advice, bit un-nerving going to uni not knowing anyone :P

    Complete nonsense, honestly ignore it. I've never had any bother in my whole time here, but I don't go out looking for it. You'll be fine.

    Feel free to ask any questions should you have any regarding the area. Before anyone asks, I can't give any advice on accommodation because I haven't looked into it as I won't be needing it.

    This might be a bit late, but King Edward's Square looked like the stand out to me. It depends what you're after.
