    I've heard Simpsons is quite good.
    Norton Court, St. Peters Court and Cotton Mills are in Radford, yeah it's a bit of a rough area but it's not as bad as it's can be made out to be, it's a bit far out from City campus though. About a 20min walk if you're like me running late and walking ridiculously fast.

    If you get placed in Accom last minute you could end up somwhere not so great, if thats the case I'd check out Cotton Mills or ask them about it cause it's a really good standard of living here and you get a lot more for your money (I think cause it's private) - I'm paying the same as what people at Sandby pay for a room twice the size (I've put a double bed in my room) and a proper bathroom not a white plastic box also the kitchen/living area is quite big and you only have to share that with 4/5 others, with free view tv - dont have to pay for a license etc.

    Ah just some people were being charged for breaking/doing stuff at Sandby that they didn't actually do, so they're not happy.

    Sorry I'm not much help, I don't really know how to go about booking accommodation for insurance etc.
    How far is Cotton Mills from the Clifton campus?

    What's life like in Cotton Mills? I was thinking about going straight for that instead of having to compete for halls, would you say that's worth it?

    If i do go to Nottingham Trent, I've been told i'd probably have to rent out private accommodation.. so I guess that's what it'll be then. Thanks for your help

    How far's Simpsons and how much is it per week?

    I'm thinking Hampden because it's affordable (it's 6 per flat and 2 share bathroom facillities which isn't that bad). It's also on the doorstep of the city and campus
    What are you looking to study, also when can we start booking our accomodation?

    people with conditional offers, if the accommodation booking this year is anything like last year you will have to be so quick in getting your accommodation. when booking opened (at 1.25am or something ridiculous) for conditional last year, there was hardly any left and from what i'm aware of now gill st is pretty much all people who had unconditionals. sandby was a fairly similar case. i went on at 7am and had the choice of 3 halls (excluding private)

    i'm at norton court. it's alright, just a 30 min walk (i'm slow haha, might be 20 mins for fast walkers) to uni and it gets a huge pain in the ass, and if it's raining then it's even worse. if i was going to pick with what i know now, i'd go for goldsmiths court or trinity square which are both private but are lovely and still have a good social side as well!
