    do you know when we recieve the accommodation pack? I've an unconditional so I heard we get first choices? lol
    I had a chat with one of the people in the accommodation services and he said it should be sometime next month, so most people should have it by the end of March/beginning of April I think.

    So I don't quite get the timings of fresher's week? I've been told that it's 2 weeks before classes start? So does that mean we do freshers and then either go home or remain in the accommodation for two weeks, or I'm wrong...?

    You won't actually be able to apply for accommodation at all with NTU as you hold an insurance offer, so you won't get an accommodation pack with booking details as only people who have it as their firm choice get this. its the same for most unis so you will apply at whichever uni you have a firm offer for accommodation and if you happen not to gte in on results day then you apply at your insurance choice and see what they have available
    I just found out about this recently. My school didn't tell me about any of this, and just rushed me into my firm and insurance. Damn! Never mind, I guess i'll just find out on results day? Thanks.

    I'm going to try and stay in Sandby hall too if I end up going to NTU. I'm a bit OCD about having my own bathroom LOL. I can't share a bathroom with other people...

    No problem, sixth forms never make it clear to students sometimes that they can't apply for accommodation if the uni is their insurance or some of the other stuff as well sometimes

    Freshers week will be the week before the term officially starts.....

    From my own understanding, this year the dates for freshers week will most likely be the week beginning 26th Sept, but the weekend of 23rd-25th will be moving in weekend.... and the term starts officially for all or most courses on Monday 3rd October....

    That's only how I understand it to be though so don't take my word for granted lol.

    That's so annoying that they didn't tell us... blaaa. Well I guess i've just got to try and meet the grades for my firm. I've been to Nottingham Trent twice now, but I've forgotton everything LOL. How far is Simpsons from the city campus? And Blenheim, how far's that? I think I'm just going to try and get into Sandby Hall if I can, Gill street has a lot of demand so I know i won't get into there. And I've heard some very bad thing's about Norton Court. Do you go the Uni? Where are you staying? (SORRY for so many questions... Just pm me if it's too much lol)

    hey, Yes i study at trent, final year student studying history at clifton so i'm not far from finishing now.

    here's a map giving rough details of the locations of all the halls, not to scale so it makes some seem closer than they are really. https://selfservice.ntu.ac.uk/accgifs/map.htm best place to look for info on the halls would be www.ntu.ac.uk/accommodation click on browse accommodation and then search all the ones for city, prices will differ though but info won't.

    Norton court is in Radford which although not far from uni by bus isn't in the best area but if its like the last few years then bus pass may be included with that one. blenheim is quite near to the uni but its up a really big hill which is a downside but is right near the main shopping centre and maybe 10 minutes walk to uni. sandby is on the campus so its basically on the doorstep for lectures, simpsons is quite close by near derby road and easily accessible by bus to the city centre. sandby is probably the best bet to be honest

    Thank you That was all very useful. I think Sandby will be the best option for me. I've got NTU as my insurance choice, and I've been told that If I do end up going there I'll probably get put in Norton Court as the others will all be full.
