    Hi,
    I plan to firm Exeter University. As such I am now deciding on an appropriate accommodation. I prefer somewhere catered, close to the the university/lecture halls,and preferably new/modern? I do not really fancy old buildings although they're full of character,just personal preference.

    After some research,I've come across Holland Hall,which seems new,catered and close to campus.
    BUT
    I've heard that most rich or snobbish ppl live there? And there have been cases of bullying too. Is this true?

    I'm actually a non-white international student,so naturally I am, really really worried about not fitting in or making friends.

    Any thoughts?

    Is anyone else having a panic attack over the costs of the accommodation? My Maintenance loan barely covers even some of the cheapest accommodation.

    I know i'm probably going to have to get a job, but it's still gonna be a struggle.
    same thats my worry too!
    altho it might be nice to have a job?
    i don't have a clue as to where I'm going to fork out all this money from....:confused:

    I visited the University on Wednesday for the post applicant open day and I loved the place! So as soon as I got home I firmed Exeter

    I think my preference for accommodation is: Lafrowda, Birks Grange Village and Duryard, in that order. Really liked Lafrowda and love that I'd only have to walk 5 mins to the centre of campus
    What subject did you apply for? I applied and firmed maths myself! Can't wait!

    Any accommodation recommendations for a guy that doesn't really mind going out, and drinking, or just chilling. And loves his sport.
    I will be a second year student this fall and i stayed in James owen court for my first year which is pretty decent. It is very close to the city centre, clubs and bar. 20 minutes walk to main campus (streatham) and 10 minutes to St' Lukes for students doing medicine and sport science

    No if you've insured you have to wait for your results and if you got into your insurance, you can apply then.

    I applied for Duryard accommodation! My choices were Duryard > Lafrowda > James Owen Court and so far I've only met 5 people who put down Duryard as their first choice :lol:
