    The rooms are really nice, quite spacious, and you get a good view if you're higher up. I can't find any pictures on FB, but this is good for giving an idea what the rooms in the College itself are like http://www.uni360.com/uni_vt2.asp?un....ipx&campusid=

    I also just got in through clearing. Am I wrong in interpreting the website as saying the deadline is up for applying for accomodation there and in uol shared halls?

    In any case, is there anyone who has accomodation at or near heythrop who wants a roomate? Will pay my fraction of rent, food costs, etc. I don't need a bed, just a place on the floor to put a mattress or sleeping bag, or a couch.
    My email address is <email removed by moderator - PM member if you wish to contact them> if anyone is interested.

    thanks.

    Have you stayed in the halls after year 1? Did you have to move out of halls? If so, was the increase in price considerable? Thanks for your help.

    I didn't live in the Alban halls at all because during my first year they were female only. I stayed at Nutford House, and intercollegiate hall, during my first year, but moving into private accommodation in my second and third years I paid less than I did staying in halls.

    edit: you can stay after the first year sometimes as a responsible person/warden for your floor, but that's not guaranteed, and imo you'd miss out on living in London.

    Are you getting full loan/bursary from the SLC? If so, then Heythrop also give you £1500ish by way of a bursary on top of that, £750 in March I think, and the rest in June/July. If not, then I'm sure if you call the person in the link I gave and speak to them, they will help you find somewhere suitable, be it in halls, or sharing with students in private accommodation.

    How much is it, out of curiosity?

    From student finance, i get 5000£ and thats the London part. I don't know anything about any bursaries or anything. Unfortunately, one of my parents was made redundant that year and because she was at her company for like twenty years, she got a massive payout and that! So i'm not sure what i'm going to do now


    EDIT: Its 6250, for the year, in Alban Halls, don't know how that works out per week.

    They will find you somewhere, even if it's just an emergency temporary measure, but it can hurt too much to call and ask what's happening

    They are, I wouldn't worry about that, great vibe, vast majority of people at Heythrop tend to be really friendly, open minded, fun and up for doing things, and even the people who prefer a quieter life tend to be pretty tolerant of other people so that won't be an issue. I've never felt that I'm missing out on anything while being at Heythrop, in fact I'm pretty sure I've had a lot more fun here than some of my mates who go to more well known universities like LSE, Imperial, Royal Holloway etc.
