    Yeah, it really does seem that way! That's good! Not AUB halls no. I've actually just (on Tuesday) secured a studio flat at Bracken House. It's flats for students in general, not just for AUB!

    I just wanted to get things sorted so I knew I HAD a place to live! Halls seemed a little uncertain - and im not good with uncertain, lol - ooh, yeah! I think most rooms, even halls, you get an en-suite just some its a shared kitchen area! - I felt exactly the same too!

    I'm kind of organised I guess, but more of a last minute person unfortunately lol. I'll have a look at Bracken House, thank you! Also, if you don't mind me asking, are you currently studying A2 or foundation?

    I'm sure your very organised and everything will work out great! Yes, you should! Urm, neither. I'm 21, so took a few sorta gap years. It was never my intention to go to Uni after College, but things changed and I found my true passion, so applied just for the AUB Modelmaking Course (as a mature student, outside of education) - How about you?

    Thank you! (: That sounds really, really great! I'm glad you've found your passion I'm doing a foundation in art, design and media. I applied for animation for my other 4 choices, however I'm more interested in stop-motion animation so I decided to specialize in modelmaking to get into the animation industry - making props, houses and characters/dolls.. hehhe :-)

    All the best, good luck!!!

    Thank You so much! That really sounds like such a fascinating aspect of it all and where it can lead to! I really do hope everything goes very well for you.

    Would love to know where you'll be living when you've decided on halls etc. ?

    Thank You - All the best and good luck to you too!

    Hiya, I've applied to AUB for Graphic Design, been accepted, and just accepted their offer! I'm super keen. :- )
    Congrats! I got an unconditional offer for graphics recently too! Waiting for one last response before I make any decisions. AUB is pretty sick though.

    Hello - yeah, I got a studio flat at Bracken House for my first year, rebooked for my second year....and have also again for 3rd year (starting in Sep). It suits me well - its close to the station and the Uni bus picks up near by too.
    It is okay - the rooms are decent size and you get your own shower room and kitchen as well - which was an essential part of what I wanted from student accomadation.
    The building itself is a little shabby. They are a bit slow with maintance repeares....one of the lifts hasnt worked for months....but, its okay on the whole.
    There is key fob entry, so quite secure.
    Other tennants can be quite noisy at times, but, they let you keep yourself to yourself...if thats how you like it!
    Not sure what else? Its not perfect, but, i guess it could be worse. It suits me okay and not having to change accomadation throughout my whole degree has been a huge relief.
    Hope its of some help... do message me, if youd like to know more etc.
