    Does anyone know what Lasdun House is like on the inside? Unfortunately I never had the chance to look around and it wasn't my first choice so I don't really know anything about it.

    Thank you

    So I've been located in the city for my accommodation (Opal Court to be exact).

    I was really hoping for acc. in one of the Oadby places (all the city places were my lowest priority choices).

    Is there any way I can try to change this by contacting the somebody in the Uni? or is it kinda a lost cause?

    I heard Oadby is better for the social side of things and so this is why I was hoping to be there as opposed to the city...

    Any help? Thanks

    Hey, I've just got accepted to Leicester to do Biological Sciences this year (YAY), and my accommodation offer is in Digby Hall (Blue Block, self-catered), which is great

    Nobody's really saying much about Digby or blue block.. what's it like there? I went to the open day but it was months ago and all the accommodation has just blurred together. Somebody's mentioned it's just been renovated or something? Is this true?

    Anyone else in blue block this year? I'm in room 1 on the ground floor, ha.

    So I got into Leicester as my insurance but means I've been given really rubbish accommodation, I got no ensuite and I'm on city living (Nixon Court). I know I wasn't gonna get what I wanted exactly because of it being my insurance but I'm thinking it's gonna be rubbish living on city living with all the postgrads when I'm an undergrad.

    I just wanted to get some opinions on this and whether it's worth ringing up and begging to see if they have ANYTHING at the student village or not?

    It's mixed between all three; PG, International and UG. I lived at Opal (practically the sister of Nixon) and I found it to be mainly international/UG. I knew someone at Nixon who would say the same. Obviously they try and place you in a flat with similar students so don't be that afraid. Nixon is great for three reasons; 5/10 mins away from uni, closer to local amenities (morrisons is 5 mins away and town is about a 25 minute walk) and there's a pub about 2 minutes away from the main blocks, ahha. Obviously the closeness to uni is a big bonus on nights at the union. (It'll save taxi fares if you have someone to walk back with) I would say if you want a more sociable living quarters though, I'd go for Oadby. Plus Nixon has only been half renovated. If you live in the renovated blocks they're amazing (expensive too!) but the other blocks are standard student living quarters.
    what blocks are the renovated ones?
