I'm currently looking at studying BA Archaeology at York in 2017 and I'm pretty much set on this as one of my main choices but I'm just wondering what accommodation would be best for me if I was to study Arch here? I attended the open day and did the tour round King's Manor and realised it's futher away from the main campus than I was expecting!
I'm looking for self-catered accommodation that isn't going to take me hours to walk or get the bus to the manor but I still want to stay in one of the blocks/colleges with good social life and things to do. I've read some horrific tales about Halifax and how dull it is so please set me straight or warn me away from certain choices that aren't going to kill my social life if needed.
Also I'm a little confused on what each college specialises around? Someone told me that Vanbrugh College socialises more within the Music and Arts groups so does that mean each college focuses more on one area of study/interest with it's members?
I'm really new to all this information but I figured it couldn't hurt to ask now even if I have got over a year to decide! Help would be great!
Best accommodation for Archaeology Students?
