    Hey, I've had problems with my accommodation even though I applied the earliest that I could and I'm probably going to have to live at home now. I was just wondering if it's going to make it harder now for me to make new friends and get involved with freshers week?

    It might make it harder to make friends in the first week cause alot of people with have shared accomadation with other students but I think once courses start you'll be fine, and maybe join a few societies and meet people that way

    I'm not sure of the number I'm afraid, google search? It's definitely worth giving them a call.

    I read on the accommodation pages that insurance is included with your uni rooms, but do you have to confirm it anywhere? I saw the mention of endsleigh but am unsure about whether that's just for extended cover. Thanks

    Last year I applied as soon as it opened in April for accommodation, and I got my Norwood place on the 5th of September. Calm down.

    Do you know what the communal showers/bathrooms are like in Brendon Court ?

    Are they individual in a separate kind of room like in the pictures here http://www.bath.ac.uk/study/ug/accom...urt/index.html

    or are they all in one room together with a shower curtain instead of a door ?

    Thanks

    I would imagine in separate rooms like they are in Norwood, but I've never been into Brendon I'm afraid.

    Thought I was going to be told my accommodation then but it was just an email to ask if I still wanted accommodation. I just want to know where I am going to be living! Got my hopes up then!

    I'd say the earlier the better. I doubt there will be anything on before the time they told you to but buses to campus can be a bit flaky out of term times and if you're early then it's just more time to explore

    My son is there as we speak. He had to travel down today as it is approx a 4 hour train journey to Bath from where we live. Really hope he gets some accommodation sorted before he returns home on Sunday

    Hi, I applied to the accommodation at the 1st of September as bath was my insurance choice and my firm one only replied to me on the 30th of August. I heard about the private houses hunting but today I couldn't go! Is there any possible way to get a place without going to there?

    I still haven't heard Do you know what the deal is with shared rooms? I know there temporary, does that mean one of the people gets to keep the room? And where would they put you after?

    They're definitely not temporary, it's just that those who are sharing a room are the first to be considered for a single room if somebody who has one drops out of uni. I have been given a shared room and I have been looking into house sharing as an alternative, but it is so hard to find flatmates! Has anybody been given a shared room in Woodland Court?
