    I hope you choose and are successful in coming to trinity, and that you then enjoy your time here and make plenty of friends. I love it here, I love my subject and I love the friends I've made. It can be a great place if you're willing to explore its possibilities.
    Thanks! You make it sound really cool. I would really like to go, the other places I applying are the London colleges, and trinity sounds more fun and studenty with a campus (even if most people dont get to actually live on it)... I really hope I get in, but postgrad applications seem so much more uncertain and difficult to judge!

    I know a few people who have gone to Trinity and everyone seems to really like it which is quite rare for a uni. I think it's one of those unis that's so diverse that you'll fine something you really like about it whatever type of person you are. I think Trinity has one of the best systems for accepting people as well...Instead of relying on predictions, they make their offers right after A levels, based on your actual results n personal statement etc.

    Apply for on campus firstly. They're competitive but if you get it, it's worth it. Halls are a definite bus journey away (~10 mins). Anyone I know who has stayed there has loved it and they are great digs (modern, private and ensuite etc) though there will tend to be a lot of younger undergrads there. While getting a flat in the city centre can be a bit of touch and go, if you're willing to put in the effort you can definitely get better value than halls and a lot closer. Talk to other people looking for acommodation if this is the route you decide to go. They'll advice you of areas to avoid, websites to look at and the rest.

    from http://www.tcd.ie/accommodation/Stud...ts/HowtoApply/

    Postgraduate

    Postgraduate accommodation is available at Trinity Hall for both academic year and calendar year occupancy. A limited number of single rooms for postgraduate students is available in College. Continuing postgraduate students may apply for accommodation for a four week period commencing in early February as per the College Calendar. New postgraduates should apply as soon as they have been accepted by College. Priority is given to those students registered for higher degrees by research only.

    Is TCD the place where you aren't meant to walk under the bell tower as its supposed to be cursed? I might be totally wrong though...
    I don't think so...
    Isn't that Birmingham where if you walk under it at a certain time then you're supposed to fail your degree??:confused:
    I know that there's an arch in Seville where if you walk under it you'll never get married

    I notice the agreement for accomodation includes all this crap about having to register 'overnight guests', having to get permission and not having them too often. Is this like at my college where if it is another student (who is your gf/bf) then in practice nobody bothers about it. I was practically living in my gf's uni room in my final year, do they really do anything to stop that kind of thing?

    Yeah pretty much. They just don't want people living there rent free and hence the rules, on the offchance that somebody tries that. I've never heard of it being enforced to any extent.
