    Choices so far -
    1. AV/JM (just can't decide, too little in between )
    2. Westwood
    3. Cryfield/Lakeside

    Thoughts?

    Updated the thread a bit.

    Includes the new prices for 2012-13. At the moment we don't know the complete accommodation distribution for freshers/finalists/PGs or if Benefactors has survived.

    I've also finally redone the map for the first time in over a year:
    Check it out here or in the full guide.

    I'm a prospective student, and thinking about accomodation for 2012/13.
    I was just wondering for the Halls that do not have integral laundrettes, how do those students get their laundry done? Is there a communal launderette on campus, or do most of them live close enough to home to get it done by their parents?
    Cheers.
    There are communal ones, Rootes Launderette is massive and covers most halls - I had to use it last term when the AV2 one was locked out of use! :hmmm:

    Ha, I was just thinking this! Ah well, guess I'll have to go outside like everyone else...

    What about stuff like smoking in the bathroom? (in your own ensuite room)
    Could that work? :cool:
    There's no fire alarms in the kitchens. That's where everyone smokes.

    All the smokers in my halls last year smoked outside, and if I saw someone smoking in the kitchen I would've happily reported them.

    It's two different styles of building within the same group of halls. When you apply, you would just put 'Rootes' as one of your choices and if you get it, they'll put you in either old or new. Usually you wouldn't make this choice yourself, although I suppose you could put down a preference in your personal description but there's no guarentee that they would follow it.

    You don't get a choice - you can only apply to Rootes. You find out whether you are old or new when you get your accommodation offer.

    As for old vs new. The first blocks, A-H, was built about 45 years ago, the others, J-P about 35-40 years ago. As for I block (international house) :iiam:

    There are pics in the 4th post of this thread of both - but really there's no difference between them.

    For example, A-C blocks have new kitchens for this year whereas other blocks might have older kitchens. To be honest, there has been enough time to refurbish all of Rootes many times over - so much so that you can't really say one is better than the other.

    I got in there during a publicity run after Christmas. The place is a maze and every door seems to lead to no-where. There were no rooms or kitchens in sight. The mystery's even stronger after going in than it was when it was just speculation

    I found out some more information about the new accommodation, Sherbourne. The entire area will compromise of 6 buildings each 4-storey. There will be 8 flats per building and 13 people per flat, in a style of 11 single rooms and 1 double room. (All en-suite).
    There will be an 8 person lift and a staircase in each building. There is a kitchen per flat (hence shared by 13 people) however it seems there are going to be 2 cookers and 2 sinks per kitchen. Each building and flat will have a key-card system to gain access to it - I'm not sure about the rooms though.
    It will be located just north of the Lakeside accommodation (just across Scarman Road from it actually) and will be between the Tennis Courts and Lakeside Apartments. It is estimated to be just over 15 minutes from the Students Union.
    It will be £117 for 2012/2013 entry. And a 39 week let.

    Hi everyone.

    I heard that neither Tocil or Lakeside will be available for first year undergrads starting this year. Is this true?

    Thanks

    Tocil definitely isn't. Not sure about Lakeside.

    But all will be revealed in the next few weeks.
