I'm looking at a campus en-suite, anybody else? I know it's a little bit more expensive but compared to other universities it's a bargain!
I am.

I wake up in the night too much to not go for it. I thought about the village for a while, but decided that being closer to the campus would be better for someone who's nearly always running late...

Yep, UEA accomadation is some of the best going - proven by their accolades :cool:

What are you first choices?
First choices? As in universities? UEA is my only choice, I declined all the others *looks evil* If you mean accommodation - campus ensuite

I was planning on putting Norfolk/Suffolk first choice but I'm not entirely sure.

Everyone here seems to be going for campus en-suite...

Yeah, me too. But then I wasn't sure about the sharing bathrooms thing. I'd kind of like my own for the first time...
having said that Norfolk/Suffolk have nice views over the grass and lake rather than over other halls...
I'm just torn!

Just a question about the halls. I live 30 miles away from the uea and was wondering whether i would get accommodation in the halls or not? Do they think i have to commute from that distance?

thanks any help appreciated
Taken from the site:

The following categories of students are not guaranteed accommodation:
Undergraduate students joining through the Clearing process.
Students who live in an approximate 12 mile radius of the UEA (see details below).
Students with a UK or EU fee status starting an undergraduate course and have lived in UEA accommodation during a previous wholly or partially completed undergraduate course.

The OP asked this back in 09 and isn't going to UEA now.

Nope, just the path is right outside my room so people feel the need to stare as they walk by.. I rarely open my curtains for that reason in all fairness, which ain't great when the weathers lovely!

The old 'I'll be a recluse' trick. We usually swamp the kitchen and sound over enthusiastic and scare them a bit. At least you dont have hoards of school children everyday walking to the sainsbury center- children glance but the teachers stare.

Nope! I used to run on black man's time! For the unititiated...
(Original post by The infallible Urban Dictionary)
A very relaxed concept of time, as used by black people the world over...
e.g. aiming to get somewhere at 1 when it starts at 12 and actually get there at 2.30 :rofl:*cough* That's an exaggeration. You don't aim to get somewhere an hour later than planned, it just... happens!
...then I realised everyone else was actually excepting me to be on time! And so you will now see me being early to everything... apart from school, which despite being 15 minutes away at a slow walk, 10 if I stroll, 5 if I power walk and 2 minutes if I take the bus, I somehow always arrive at 9 on the dot or half an hour late. :sad:
My parents are worse than me haha, if I want my dad to get me somewhere on time, I have to tell him the event starts two hours earlier than it actually does. :rolleyes:
But yeah, campus en suite it is!

I considered that before I applied, but I ended up thinking that if I was 5 minutes closer to lectures, I'd probably just end up decided that meant I could sleep for 5 more minutes ><

I woke up in the village 10 minutes before my very first 9am lecture, I've never moved so fast in my life but I actually made it lol.

Haha! I have to say I'm the same. Only I run on 'Ish-ish' time. As in, it starts a 8, so I say '8-ish' and end up somehow rolling up 15-30 minutes late, no matter how early I get ready to go, which is irritating, to say the least... I'm starting to wonder when my friends will start telling me things start earlier than they do, like your dad.

Haha, bravo! That has to take some skill to get ready and get on campus in that much time. It's a skill I don't think I have. I'll have to work on before I get to uni!

Not huge. A couple of feet wide at most. They've got a shelf above them, which I can't reach (but I shove big things up there like big jumpers/scarves and stuff), and a set of drawers. I also have a couple of boxes under my bed full of tights and shoes, but I probably have too many clothes. I'd bring a bit of extra storage if you've got loads of stuff. And bring hangers. Many, many hangers.
