    When I first went into Teesside we found out about our accommodation based on how early we applied for it, so people that applied earlier found out earlier.

    I received my contract for Parkside West (Which also told me which room I was in and everything) on 02/07 and was made to pay a £150 deposit within the week of getting the contract to confirm my place.

    It was the same for everyone in different accommodation as well from what I remember so I imagine that's what will have to happen unless they've changed their system within two years.

    Well...kinda used to traveling a lot so no issues ..have you guys been to any open days ?.i have no clue about the uni or the area..i have to depend on google atm for pictures..uni looks great,although i've read almost everywhere that middlesbrough isn't exactly safe nor friendly
    Middlesbrough is alright, it's quite multi-cultural, you walk around and you will see many different types of people, however since the EU referendum that may have changed, but it seems that way everywhere right now

    I dont really know much about the town as Im not from there but I've been a couple of times, you get the few bad people walking around, but there will be loads of Uni people too

    Hii I'm Melanie and I'm going to be studying History come September. I did have an offer at Durham but it just felt so empty and maybe a bit too formal when I went for a visit. I didn't feel like I would fit in. I didn't like Sunderland much either, it's a bit too spread out but Teesside felt so warm and it has a good environment, the other two Unis were lacking it for sure.

    I'm not from Middlesbrough but I'm sure a 40-1 hour bus journey wont be too hard, just dreading 9am starts if we have any as it means I need to get up about 6:30, get the bus from my home into town to catch the Uni bus to Middlesbrough and with the morning traffic rushes I will need to make sure I can get into my town on time to catch the right bus that will get me to Uni on time, then walking up from the bus station to the Uni itself, but I guess I will work that out when it's time

    Nope, staying at home. I have really bad anxiety and slight depression so maybe that is for the best. Also you cant have pets and I would miss my guinea pigs

    Hey guys, I'm Ali, I'm studying Biological Sciences (Extended) hopefully if I get the grades

    I've been offered a place in Central Halls and I emailed them the other week cos I was concerned because I hadn't heard anything but they replied saying the paperwork is being sent out late this year due to new Occupancy Agreements, I was worried too! Hope this helps others who were wondering

    Looking forward to meeting you all in September
