First of all, thanks for your reply, a pretty thorough one.
Yeah, I've read about Derwent's reputation for partying... To be honest, though, I don't really care much about partying, I'd rather go to a pub with a small group, talk and have some drinks. Parties are a bit too overwhelming for me, so I could do without them.
You have a very good point about missing out on cooking with others... I would still have to cook during weekends, though. The Heslington East colleges look very good, but my lectures are on the West campus and I'm not a big fan of walking long distances to get to a lecture haha. The other option I was considering was ensuite self-catered, either James or Alcuin, and those are £
4581 per year, so the difference is less than £
200 between these two options (and since I'll be paying Overseas fees, it's a good idea to save as much as possible).
I'm not at all picky about food (except for special occasions), so I think I'd use the service regularly... Trust me, it can't be worse than the lack of variety of food I ate at school regularly last year!
I'm fairly certain that Derwent P Block is going to be the block that was Langwith D Block before... Are these rooms good, okay, bearable, or bad?
