I'm from Malaysia, and I was thinking of making Nottingham my firm choice.
Can you guys help me out? I have no idea which accommodation I should choose? I've read the previous threads and most people prefer the location of Cripps and Hugh Stewart halls, but I was wondering what about the room types?
I'd really appreciate any help on this. Thanks guys
Hello, I'm from Malaysia too and will be going to Nottingham in Sept 2012. I have had the same thoughts about staying in Cripps and Hugh Stewart as it is closer to to lecture halls. But I'm not sure whether we can choose which halls to live in or get allocated.
So far I have applied and got allocated in Ancaster Hall. what about you?

Doesn't matter. Pick good halls and put them on the form under special reqs or whatever the section is called - it's been a year. I would dissuade you from Ancaster and Cavendish on the basis they're pretty much the same from what I gather and I live in Ancaster. FloBo seems fairly spacious. Nightingale's bar is nice enough. Hugh Stu, Cripps, Lincoln and Derby seem nice. The rest I don't really remember much about.
Hey Alesx2602, I'm going for first year this September, and I got allocated in Ancaster, since you live there, can you tell me more about Ancaster Hall? And may I know how does the university allocated us in halls? Do they go by year or it is just random?
Earlier on I was thinking of staying in Cripps or Hugh Stewart as it is nearer to lecture halls and that's is especially important to me. From the campus map, Ancaster seems like a long way to lecture halls:/ Apart from that, I'll prefer catered halls as well.
I got allocated in Ancaster Hall, can anyone tell me more about this hall?
Also, I hate to stay far away from lecture halls, Ancaster seems like a long way to lectures. Are we allowed to change halls? If yes, how do I go about it?

Thanks, I haven't had a chance to go and see the accommodation. Do you know if it comes with items such as a kettle, toaster, iron + ironing board? And is there an oven? I couldn't see from the pictures. Thanks again
I'm not entirely sure about kettle and toaster - there's no list of items that are there but Broadgate is really close to Beeston so you can always see what's there and then go and buy what you're missing. There's usually an ironing board shared between a couple of rooms but I'm not sure.
There isn't a proper oven but there's a convection microwave (essentially the child of a microwave and an oven). I wasn't sure about not having a proper oven but my girlfriend had one in halls and we still managed to eat oven food so we'll probably survive it.

Is there anyone from neuroscience course living/planning to live in SPC ?
Starting my course in september and SPC's en suite seems most legit to me
Future neuroscientists, unite !
I'm doing neuroscience too - I was going to go for SPC but I chose BGP instead. I still haven't had an offer yet.
Just have to play the waiting game...
What grades do you need to get into Nottingham?

I will be joining Broadgate Park, a single study bedroom in September. I was wondering if anyone would know that one can take mini fridges or not?
PS:Anyone who has visited Broadgate Park? How is it like? :P
I'm going to BGP in a single study too - I don't know if we are allowed mini fridges or not but I'm brining one anyway. I think if it is only a mini one they can't really say much can they? It'll be kept in your room so...
I haven't seen it myself but I bet like all student accommodation it will not be the best place you have ever stayed in XD
