I havn't heard anything, although I eager to know what accommodation I have, ha. I have heard different things..Liverpool give the impression we hear back fairly quickly, but I have heard it can take a few weeks/1 or 2 months, so who knows!

A few weeks/months??!! Im afraid i'll be giving them a call if ive not heard back by next Monday lol more out of fear of spending my room deposit rather than just being stubbornly impatient lol

The bus isn't that bad you know, only takes about 15-20 mins to get up to the halls, and in my time living up Smithdown, I only had to wait a couple of times.
I hated waking up at half eight and realised I was definitely late for my 9am class in my time at Carnatic. However having moved near the campus, I could even afford to wake up 20 minutes before the class. I know a lot of ppl would prefer Smithdown which is a popular place for students, but my experience told me I would rather stay somewhere near everything. Again, it really depends on individuals.

Confirmed Liverpool as my first choice to do Physiology, looking at the different halls and have no idea which to pick. I am interested in meeting lots of new people, working hard, but also playing hard ha! Any advice would be great please!!

Thanks

can anyone help me out i've firmed liverpool today and i'm stuck on accomodation

everyone on here seems keen on prospect point, why's that? does anyone reckon it'd be a dodgy walk past the hospital at night etc. my course is quite intense so i would like something onsite so i could go to my flat at lunch if i need too, but i really want ensuite/self catered so i don't have many choices

do you think it'd be too late to get a decent choice now? i had my interview on the 23rd and just got my offer, so i'm still waiting for the accomodation form

is anyone worried about the bus service form off site campus's? someone said that derby and rathbone, where i'd be more inclined to go, has it's own service in the mornings so it's easy to get a bus, but then i read on other threads that it's the same bus which means the one from carnatic sometimes has to go straight past greenbank and you could be waiting ages. i'm not a massive partier but definately want to make good friends outside my course

ahhh what a hard decision :P please help!

i wish liverpool had onsite campus,self catered and ensuite that was popular with first year undergraduates :P
Hey, I've just applied and if I were you I'd go to Derby & Rathbone as I've heard it's one of the better campus halls away from the main uni, plus it's the only halls to do self-catered, en-suite. My friend's sister goes there and she's in Roscoe and Gladstone, and says that D&R is better and not to go for Carnatic.
I've also gone for Prospect Point cause its self-catered, ensuite If you want self catered and en-suite, go for those two and quickly! Apparently the bus services are fine and it helps being able to get away from the main campus so you're not there all the time, and it encourages you to explore more of Liverpool and that sort of thing.
Hope this helps!

I looked at accom for ages before deciding and got a few tips off a friend's sister who's in her final year there:
-Apparently Greenbanks is nicer than Carnatic, so if you want off-site halls, go for GB.
-Food's bearable but it's much more practical (and cheaper) to go self catered. Derby & Rathbone at GB are the only ones that do self-catered ensuite in halls off campus, if you can't stand shared bathrooms (although I've heard they're really not THAT bad)
-Prospect Point is the most popular campus accomodation as its self catered, ensuite. However, they say you meet more people at the off campus sites and it's nice to escape from the main campus sometimes. However, the on campus accomodation (which apparently all of it's nice) is closer to the city and saves you having to buy a buss pass which is apparently £300?

Hope this helps! I went for D&R at GB and then PP

In the end I just decided to play it safe. Even though I initially wanted self catered, en suite, I thought I'd just go for somewhere without any risk of it being poor socially. I see it more about the people as opposed to the actual accommodation I suppose. Thrown in what was going to be my first choice as my second choice just for some variation...

1 - Dale Hall (catered)
2 - D&R (self catered, en-suite)
3 - Lady Mountford House (catered)
Gawd I'm so indecisive. Ended up swapping the first 2 choices around. Will leave it at that now.

As long as D&R/Greenbank are social and decent enough, it should be fine should I get it.

^ you have to wait for them to send you an email inviting you to apply, you should get it a day or 2 after you've made their offer your firm conditional or unconditional.

I imagine that it would be first come first serve, it would be the only fair way? Worth asking them I suppose.
