    Ahh whats goin on?! I called up the accomadation ppl and they said I was getting a broadgate park ensuite studio, but today a tenancy agreement for St Peters Court arrived. I cant even call them cause its the weekend! Ahh confusion... Is there much difference between St Peters and Broadgate, apart from the distance to campus is one much better than the other.. should I just accept this offer?

    If they said they would give you BGP studio - then that's what you should be getting! Don't accept an offer that you're not happy with. I'd say give it until Monday, give the accommodation office a call and see what's happening. It might just have been a silly mistake.

    Yep, there's bike sheds in fact, which are a lot better and a lot more secure than normal racks 'cos you have to have your keycard to get in to the shed. I'd personally recommend bringing a bike if you can. It's pretty secure in the shed (although still get it insured), saves time when running up to Sainsburys in Beeston and getting to lectures. It's also an easy way of getting exercise and good fun coming back down the hill from UP to Broadgate. I had my bike for most of last year, and found it a godsend! Took 5 mins to get to lectures instead of 15

    ... + extra weight that you're not used to (ie: bags/books)...
    you forgot your new and rapidly developing beer belly. Trust me, you'll get one. If not from beer, from takeaway pizza.

    lol, it happened to me, although not as bad. I wanted large standard plus, but they sent me large ensuite, which i didn't want,because it's like a thousand pounds more. They said they'd sort it out, but i had to ring them, eventually they had ran out of wht i wanted, so i was stuck with a standard plus, without the large, grr

    Ah, it's not that bad - all you get with 'large' is slightly more room, thats all really!

    I think you're looking tops 30-35 mins. You could probably do it in 20 though if you were running late!

    Hi mate. Ok, I'm gonna be completely honest with you - I think the studio rooms are probably most suited to postgrads or final years that will need to and want to be in working hard towards their degrees. As a first year undergrad, it's almost definately not worth heading for - you'll miss out on so much, even if it's just socialising with your flat where you make your first friends. I guess people that do venture out will be a part of the Broadgate community but why pay the extra cost? A flat kitchen is just as good - probably better (as you don't have to put up with annoying cooking smells in your sleep) and more sociable.
    Sorry, I have been pretty biased here, but a lot of that is worth taking in to consideration.
    ive applied for one of them studio rooms but im unsure now coz i dont want 2 b anti-social maybe i shud at least share a kitchen will they let me change?
