Ok i'm gonna split this up.
From memory, the form asks you whether you would mind sharing or not - generally Warwick try to have everyone in their own room because they feel we all need our own study space. So there is a chance are you could end up in a single in Benefactors, yes - but there aren't that many of them. Or you could end up in a sharing room and your partner not turn up and have a big room to yourself at the lower rental rate, which happens more than you'd think it would
There are rumours floating that Benefactors may be closing anyway - we shall see.
1. Don't panic.
2. You have to chose 5 and you can chose a 6th if you wish but...
3. Basicallyyyyy... With medical considerations you should
get your first choice, but as I've said it doesn't always happen (fuss-making time).
Kitchens are cleaned monday, wednesday and fridays in all accommodation so there doesn't really tend to be an issue with mess until sunday night - though sharing with 24 is slightly different to sharing with 8! Just remember that everyone else is in the same situation and in my experience people are generally fairly respectful of other people's food. Utensils, etc, aren't provided, so you'll need to get your own anyway, and you can always put them in your room if you don't want others to use them.
You're only supposed to have a fridge for medical reasons, though some people get away with it if they get on with their cleaner.
Sherbourne is still being built so none of us know what it's like, but being new is always a good start
In terms of location it's out by Lakeside - I'm not quite sure of the layout in terms of proximity to central campus as I'm not over that way much, but it will either be the same walking distance, or slightly further, than Lakeside, so probably not ideal for you.
Appreciate JM is stretching it - I still think you should strongly consider Tocil.
They're smaller flats (6-12 people) so not so much of an issue with kitchen mess, and they have 2 fridges so lots and lots of space!
The rooms are fairly standard, quite large, and the bathrooms (from what I've seen) are fine too (not en suite in Tocil though).
Price is not too bad, and the location is pretty good for you.
Claycroft possibly a bit too far to SS? I don't know.
You'll find you end up happy wherever you get anyway, and you'll adapt quickly, so try not to worry about it too much!
phew ok back to revision!
