    thanks for the prompt reply..

    lasdun FX bottom floor? to tell the truth i only visited beaumont on my open day, haven't got a clue why i put GMS first pick.

    do you know how many people to a block and how the blocks end up working in GMS? i just know full well that a couple of weeks in i'll be loving partying with randoms, etc. but just for that first couple of days where the nerves are still there i'd rather have a group of people i can huddle for safety with
    That'll be easier in lasdun than it would be in Beaumont, as the blocks are split into flats of 5 or 6 (I think). In terms of sociable nature within the block it seemed very similar to Beaumont (where I was) judging from people I knew there. Being bottom floor it will be all guys in your flat

    I stayed there for a week at one point and the rooms are pretty decent, bit more recently renovated than Beaumont though the outside is somewhat errrm distinctive.

    I called them for a similar reason , I'm vegan and love to cook so had a bit of a panic when they put me in catered! There's no self catered in Oadby (well that's what they told me but dont quote me on it !), but there were self catered in Mary Gee and the Grange =]
    Huh. It's weird that they gave the option for it... but maybe all the self-catered spots have been taken up then? That was quick!
    Thanks for letting me know.

    Did she say there is none left or none what so ever? If the former, perfectly understandable, if the latter a damn right lie.

    On their accomodation page:

    Changing Your Offer

    We understand that if you are not offered your first choice of accommodation that this may cause some initial disappointment. Unfortunately it will not always be possible to transfer your offer to a different room before the start of the academic year. During the weeks leading up to the start of term our priority is to get all the thousands of applicants into rooms and all rooms will therefore be taken up by this process.

    If you are unhappy with the accommodation that has been offered to you we will do our best to transfer you to an alternative room.

    Once the term has begun, it is inevitable that some students will not arrive to take up their residency, or will leave early, and this will create vacancies. However it is not possible for us to predict in advance how many vacancies will appear, or at which sites they will become available.
    If you wish to be considered for a room transfer you should accept the accommodation that has been offered to you and then complete a Transfer Request Form, which will be available from the Accommodation Office after the start of term. Should a suitable vacancy become available we will contact you immediately.

    Quoting you because you're awesome/grabbing your attention.

    I got my offer of Beaumont Hall which i'm pleased. But where abouts is Block 7? I've been there a few times and I can't for the life of me figure out which building it is and I was hoping you would know

    Thanks!

    I just realised a PM would've been better to grab your attention, bleh.

    Haha thanks

    Before I go any further, Block 7 is the absolute dog's testicles, congratulations on getting a place in undoubtedly the finest accommodation Leicester University has to offer

    In more relevant news it's in New Quad. So from the dining hall follow the building round to the left and take a right into New Quad, Block 7 is slap bang in front of you, no doubt looking absolutely delightful. Let me know if you have any other qs

    That is the best forum post I've ever read and I lurk quite a bit here and there :')

    What's so great about it? haha

    Edit: Found the official Facebook groups for each accommodation, think they've only recently been set up hence the lack of people liking them but I'm sure in due course they'll get rather active!

    I lived there

    Other than that those blocks (6 and 7) seem to create really close groups and everyone I know from them had an amazing Freshers and made a lot of close friends. I'm still living with 5 mates from Block 7 and I'm going into my 4th year :yes:

    This doesn't seem to be a one off either, I know people who lived there the years above and below me who had similar experiences. This video from the group a while back now captures it (and halls generally) really well I think. Makes me all nostalgic, cannot describe how jealous I am of all you lot!
