    i went brack 3 year ago and the 100 was rubbish. getting to brack wasnt a problem in the morning, even though it was full of school kids that delayed the bus, but it was getting home that was the problem, 7 out of 10 times the bus would be late and standing in the middle of the countryside waiting for the bus was not good at all!!
    pretty expensive too especially when you have to catch an NCT bus then you have to jump on the 100...thats 2 separate bus tickets! i start in oct and im not looking forward to the travelling at all. early mornings and 2 buses for me!

    Heyy jammy66, I'm glad to hear that Southill House is alright as I'm going to live there this year to study Animal Biology I was wondering what the atmosphere in Brackenhurst is like?
    Cheers!!

    Hey, Awesome WC is excellent

    Yeah i have, and im living on campus next year too, next door to where i am now, which is nice!

    Older accommodation is aright, it's shared toilets/showers but it doesn't look too bad. Southhill not sure on that i have only been once, and i didn't see much of it... but you are sharing rooms and toilets... Being just over the road from brack, don't miss out on anything as its easy to get too... and the same with the older accomidation!

    I am pleased i have en-suite not only because i have IBS but also it's a lot nicer.

    I might be a fresher rep for you guys soon, so watch this space!

    Hello

    I have a question, or a few. What's NTU like? In terms of the 1) people, 2) uni and its facilities 3) societies and all that like uni experience type stuff and 4) the actual area. (I was told something about NTU being in an area full of chavvy people and stuff and that you'll have annoying chavvy troublemakers trying to start fights or etc
    Also what's the ntu population mix like? Is it a mixed population or is it for example mostly white people?

    Also has anyone studied Zoo Biology at NTU? if so, what's your opinion of it? Pro's? Con's?
