    My course director (nicest person on the planet), said something like that... We have some lectures or workshops or something together, can't totally remember what it was, but because our courses are so similar or something.

    Ah cool (: I'm doing set design, stage and screen one, not seen anyone else from my course on here yet
    Same, I messed up my application so I had to change it, I doubt I'll get any decent accommodation now!
    I looked around earlier, and theres loads of decent house shares and stuff, just would rather find one that's all students so I can have fun! But I bet noone will need a flatmate till like august .. might just wait and get something then eek.
    What kind of sites do you look on for house shares? Yea I'm so tempted to just leave it all till last minute, o well whats the worst that can happen- I'm sure there are some very nice bridges around Wimbledon I can live under!

    there's looads um, I googled some, which probably isn't safe.. and there's some linked from this site: http://www.studenthousing.lon.ac.uk/
    they have a guide to stop yourself accidentally renting a pavement or something
    I think they have an office for private uni accom. from here too
    http://www.arts.ac.uk/housing/private_sector.htm

    promise if you find something good to tell me too? I'm so easily distracted when i'm meant to be researching for my future..

    I don't know anything about the hall but I know you can reject the offer of the Uni, but it just means that you're not garunteed halls...if you reject it and dont get anything you can call back housing services on the 5th of June and see what they have available then? It's safer to just accept what you've got now though.

    it would take you about an hour to get from Bethnal Green to Wimbledon...you'd have to make 3 changes - Central line, then Piccadilly and finally District. You'd be traveling from North East to South West...so it would take a whilee :/

    TBH there aren't really any halls very close to Wimbledon...I think that the closest is Brooke Hall, but thats still a 45 minute tube journey

    Hope I helped!

    Yeah I had a look at a tube map :/
    You have helped! thankyou (:
    are you at Wimbledon too? Just can't decide whether it'll be worth it, want the security of halls and knowing where I'm going to live, but I've seen rooms for rent in Wimbledon that are loads cheaper and walking distance .. I hate decisions :/

    you've just gotta consider whether or not you want to risk not meeting AS many people in Halls, I don't mean you'll never meet anyone 'cause thats ridiculous, but you'll meet different kinds of people (if you go in halls) within your flat, and then also within the actually building itself, theres always randomers that you'll meet and possibly get on with, which of course is important for the second year when you get somewhere else to live with friends that you make. You'll make friends on your course too obviously but a lot of people make friends to live with from within their halls too!

    Hi Just thought id let you know that nearest station to cordwainers is either 2mins to london fields or a ten min walk to hackney central. Which is 55mins to wimledon & just 2 changes at highbury & islington, then vauxhall plus half the journey is train which is nicer than tube! Im going to cordwainers hence the interest x

    Yeah I agree, I'd really rather be in halls! It's just the distance that's worrying me, Didn't want to spend too much on halls, so kinda restricted, I thinkk I should go for it, just hope there's someone else at cordwainers going to Wimbledon so I have travel buddiess

    It seems like iv got a similar dilemma. Brookehall is like an hour from Wimbledon too, gunna have to wake up at crazy early o clock. Also worried there won't be other Wimbledon people there, don't want to get knifed up on my home! That furzledown place wouldve been so much easier, but someone told me its full of asbestos or something so maybe not! Think I'm gunna just accept halls, seems the easiest thing at the moment.
