    HELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLOOOOOOOOOOO THERE.

    So happy I've finally found a post about this! I'm Abie, 20 years old, I go to Reading uni but I didn't like my course here or the general city so I'm moving to Oxford Brookes to start as a fresher once again I'll be on Headington campus, so hopefully Clive Booth or Cheney, saw them both on open day so if you have any questions about accommodation or generally being a university student I'm all ears :cool: x
    Hey!! Glad you've found the thread, it's been extremely helpful so far What did you think of the Clive booth ensuite and non ensuite rooms? Also what course are you doing?

    Holaaaa, Clive Booth looked so nice, and in comparison to the halls I'm living in right now a lot better! The lounge/kitchen space is huge there with loads of sofas - ideal for pre-drinks big field nearby, shortest walk ever to Headington Campus! I've never liked the sound of non-ensuite but I looked at the Clive Booth ones anyway and they aren't actually bad at all! It's basically like a shared house upstairs and downstairs which is cute, big kitchen/dining area again, front/back door, two seperate shower rooms and two toilets with sinks, and it's only 4/5 of you in a shared town house thing as compared to St. Patricks hall at Reading uni where one floor has to share one bathroom!!

    So definitely a lot better! I'm studying Fine Art and History of Art

    when I went to the applicant day they did say there was an option to rent out your room at Cheney over the summer period, but you do have to organise it yourself before formally notifying the uni of the changes, meaning you'd have to find a tenant etc, I don't know if this helps you at all but I just thought I'd pass it on
    Thanks
    I know that it's a possibility but the likelihood of there not being anyone willing to take on my room, or the fact that there will possibly be another couple hundred people looking to rent their rooms out is what's worrying me. That, and the fact that in the contract it states once signed that you are responsible for the room for the whole period of the contract... which makes me worry about any damage anyone might do to the room over the summer that I could end up paying for :/
    Maybe I just worry about it too much :') Ahaha....

    I haven't posted on here in quite a while but basically I've firmed my unconditional to study Politics and International relations which means I'm definitely going to Brookes in September! I've put down Clive Booth en-suite as my top choice for accommodation. Is anyone else doing the same course or put down the same accommodation?

    Hi, just thought I'd join in too. I've firmed my conditional offer to study BA Film Studies, and applied for accomodation. I really liked Slade Park so I'm hoping to go there. I don't mind commuting, as I currently commute about an hour for school.

    Ah well done you , did you do foundation diploma?? I'm going to have my 21st birthday at halls ... talk about oldest fresher majority of the people I met in halls on the open day were around 20 years old, a lot of them did gap years so hopefully I'll be okay and get a decent flat this year!!

    I got adopted by another flat in my block this year at Reading because the people in my flat weren't my type of people at all wahhh hopefully I'll be surrounded by fun loving random people!

    I've finally firmed oxford brookes, after much deliberation.
    I haven't really posted much (really at all :P ) on here, so i thought i'd begin so i wouldn't be a complete hermit when i arrive.
    The only thing that bothers me about accommodation is the price, which i wouldn't mind so much if i could acquire employment while i study, however i'm not sure how easy it is to find a job.
    either way, as evidenced here, i'm sure i'll find other individuals whom i can befriend ^_^
