    Wahey, Whitworth Park is the best. Don't swap to Oak House!
    I still feel a bit peeved though, is it not a bit crappy it not being in Fallowfield?

    To be honest, im not too bothered which campus im on as long as its not catered or in PG accommodation, ur lucky you have somewhere!

    No, not at all. It's close to the city centre, right next door to the academy where all the gigs are, which is also the union (just been refurbed too, though I never thought of it as much of a dump before they did it up), and right near lectures! So it's all good.
    If you visited the open house day, you'll probably have seen the amount of buses up and down Oxford Road. If you multiply that number by about 10, that's the amound of buses you'll see going to fallowfield on that road per hour. Busy bus route. Get on a bus to fallowfield and you'll be there in about ten mins. So you won't miss out at all

    Surely its not the same as actually living there though, and having a place to stay up there?

    I wish I had SOMEWHERE to stay! lol

    I wish I was in the situation to complain about not being in fallowfield...

    Im still waiting for my appeal to be answered

    I don't follow. You get where you're given and you make your friends, you have a good time. I don't get what all this fuss is about regarding halls and people not being happy!

    You may as well put a deposit down, it'll be transferrable if you do get moved and at least then you don't risk being stuck with no accommodation. When did you send your appeal?

    well, i got forced into putting deposit down for Owens Park (Green court) but i really really want Oak House, ur so lucky!
    I hope i can change when i get there

    Don't worry hun, there's a period in October before your first accommodation payment is due to be made where anyone who wants to change, can change
