    No idea to be honest. I never lived on BGP.

    I just own the Bar and Shop.

    At Spar prices, Sim? Pah! Although it is excellent for when one runs out of cigarettes at 9:45 in the evening :P

    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!
