    Hi everyone! I have recently firmed my unconditional offer for medicine! Looking forward to start!!! Just a few quick questions..
    How do I get the student ID required to apply for accommodation?
    What is the most popular accommodation for medics? (it's not that I want to be with medics only, but it would be nice to live with someone doing the same course/having the same timetable!)
    Thanks!

    Not sure about the ID, ask in the current applicants thread.

    All of the halls at Oadby have plenty of medics, it's a big course, but probably most in JoFo. However don't worry about that too much, you get Introweek at which LUSUMA put on loads of events for you to meet other medics without anyone else there, culminating in the PJ bar crawl, so don't worry about meeting other medics.

    Thank you so much! Do you happen to know when introweek takes place? Is it at the same time as the normal freshes' week or before? Because on the university website it says that term 1 starts in october, but in my offer letter it said on september 24th.. so maybe that's the week? thanks!

    Traditionally Introweek has been the week before normal Freshers, with all medics in one set of accommodation for that week. Then during normal Freshers' medics are in normal lectures, though so are a lot of other subjects by the end of the week, just try and stay strong through the hangover!

    I can't imagine why they'd have moved Introweek to run parallel to main Freshers' but you can always ask once there's an official medic freshers' 2012 group up on Facebook.

    Heyhey!

    You get your student ID with the email that they send you. And I'm a medic fresher too and just confirmed my JoFo offer. I heard JoFo was pretty popular with medics too and I know of another medic fresher living on the floor just below me as well.

    Hello! I was actually thinking about JoFo myself! Hopefully I'll get that or something close to it! Student ID in the email? I'm sorry I must be blind but I can't see it anywhere in my offer email.. where should it be? thanks!

    It should be at the top of your email along with your UCAS ID number? it might be on the email that leicester send to you after you confirm the offer?

    Apologies in advance if this is a repetitive question, but I've gone through this whole thread and still have a few questions.

    Situation: I'm an international student who holds an unconditional offer. I'd like a single room with my own bathroom. Laundry onsite. Preferably on campus (or near it /10 minute walk the max). Also not to far from local amenities (i.e. supermarket, doctors office, bank etc etc)

    I assumed Nixon Court/Opal court would be the common answer but I read in the thread that you need to pay for your internet usage in this one?

    Thank you!

    The link on accommodation says it's only Opal and The Grange where you have to pay for internet. Opal varies from 150-480 depending how many meg you want.

    Ahh, I see. Thank you for that clarification.

    So just to reiterate, Nixon/Opal are the closest residence areas to campus and are self-catered?

    Self catered single bedroom?

    It's just behind the new quad and backs on to the Botanical Gardens which is nice. All girls and not many in there (6 maybe?) so creates a nice atmosphere not dissimilar to a house in second year (according to someone I know who lived there).
