    Hi I'm possibly (still deciding) using Lincoln as my first choice and I was just wondering if there would be anybody interested in going into private accomodation? I've looked on lincolnstudentpad.com and found some really nice places that look even better then the one's that the uni have and are even cheaper then some of them too. If I do end up applying I will post it on here, but for now I was just wondering.

    A bit about me:
    Hobbies: Reading, watching films, listening to music, browsing on the internet
    Course applying: BA Journalism
    Drinking: I do drink but I don't get drunk, I drink for the taste (I do sometimes get tipsy though).
    Nightlife/Social: I would much rather go to a pub then a club. I haven't been to a club so I will try it, but to be honest, the pub sounds so much better. I love the cinema and I would love to get more time to go to the theatre too (I love anything related to culture).

    I'm looking for private accomadtion at the moment, definatley don't fancy halls. :P Trying to find some where close-ISH to the uni ( within about a 10-20 mins walking distance or a bus ride) Im stationed up opposite the catherderal so I have to hike up that darn hill every day... looking forward to that....

    just trying to find some one to rent with is my prioraty at the moment- Don't want to end up with some one who youre gonna be butting heads with allt ime time =/

    About me:
    Hobbies: reading, writting, drawing, baking. internet stuffs, walking.
    Course: BA Illustration
    Drinking: I dont really drink. I'll have rather literally one glass of archers and lemondae or somethign and I'm good for the rest of the night XD
    Other- I dont smoke, I love curling up and watching movies or documentaries on the tv.

    where else are you thinking of going ?

    Hi it's ok. Don't worry.

    Yeah, finding someone was one of my worries but I'm glad I'm not the only one. Damn that hill, well I'm sure you'll get used to it eventually.

    It sounds like we have a lot in common so I think we'd get along quite well to be honest.

    I've got offers from Lincoln-Journalism, Edge Hill-Creative Writing and English Literature, Anglia Ruskin-Writing and English Literature, Leeds Trinity-English Literature and Writing and York St John-Creative Writing and English Literature

    I don't really fancy halls much either, I don't wanna be with a massive group of people who are gonna want to go out and get drunk as much as they can haha. I prefer the quiet :P

    Oh hey I applied to Anglia Ruskin too 8D Got it down and my backup choice.


    nah halls definatley arnt my style. Im a really light sleeper and you just KNOW that you'll be sandwhiched in btween the two party animals in halls.... I also kinda dont like the idea of sharing a kitchen with about 7 other people... you konw someones onna eat your food >_<

    SOunds like we would get along fairly well! Keep me posted on what you're doing uni wise

    Oh, awesome. I've not visited Lincoln but Anglia Ruskin is really nice. A bit expensive as it is in Cambridge though.

    Yeah, that's one of the main reasons why I wanted to go private. I do enjoy going out but I do want to be able to go to sleep too. I don't wanna be with a massive group of random people. The most amount of people I would wanna be with is 4 (that including me). Anymore than that just seems too much for my liking. Anybody steals my food, I assure them, it will not end well for them :P

    Yes, it does I will do. Thanks for the friend request by the way

    I'm from Sheffield (only an hour on the train).

    Oh ok, I'm guessing you're doing a BTEC then? I need 280 Points (I'm doing A Levels) so thats basically 2 Bs and a C. I'm really thinking about applying here now.

    Have you applied for student finance by the way? I'm in middle of doing it and it wants to know when the end of my course is and I have no idea when

    It's so complicated I've not even had a go on that yet but from finance talks I've been on the total I'd get is around 6 grand, maybe a bit over. I'm gonna try and get the rest done a.s.a.p. so I'm gonna try and talk to mine as well.

    By the way, in terms of accomodation, have you seen anywhere nice? Private mail me a link if you do
