    Always good to be prepared! I think the university housing could be more expensive than a private one potentially.. but you get insurance and often shorter contracts, whether in university halls/houses I believe.

    Also up for sharing with anyone.. providing I'm not exclusively with couples :P
    Me too!! Also not in a couple, so you wouldn't be alone :P

    How easy is it getting around from say Earlsdon to Leamington? They stressed at Open Days etc most social events are in Leamington so would be good to know it's easy to get to public transport wise!

    There is a U1 bus that goes from the university to leamington that you can get a years pass for £330. Other than that you can cycle it, takes me about 40 minutes each way.

    I really wouldn't. It's kind of far out and it's definitely not the nicest area, it's cheap and there are bus links but I woudn't take anything valuable out there.

    Good to know, I'm attached to my valuable items.

    Leamington is nice, lots of restaurants and bars but a little far out and quite expensive.
    Earlsdon is close to the city centre and about 10 minutes walk to the medical school and relatively cheap.
    Tile hill is cheap but far out (not as far as leamington, only about half an hours cycle) and unpleasant.
    Kenilworth is a really nice little town, 15 minutes cycle from the university, restaurants and the like but not particularly cheap.

    I lived about 10 minutes walk from earlsdon when I was growing up, really nice place, next to a giant park too which is great for the summer or if you like running or cycling.

    Earlson is further than 10m walk to campus. I'm a current student and people I know who live there either take the bus or cycle - both about 20m I think.

    I suppose it depends which end you live at?

    To be honest anything under 30m is an improvement from my last uni accommodation so I'll take that!

    Try looking at Canley, some parts aren't too bad and it's the nearest place to campus.

    If you live at the end near the war memorial Park it's not much more than 10 minutes, depends exactly where you are though

    That is true, just something to keep in mind when looking at houses though. Would be sad to expect a 10m walk and get a 40m one

    Hey guys anyone considering moving in with peeps from TSR? I won't be at the meet-your-fellows in July unfortunately but would be nice to move in with people, I'm not a huge fan of halls.
    I personally don't have a car so would be looking at somewhere closeish to uni so I can cycle!

    TLDR: anyone fancies some house hunting together?

    Edit: sorry I'm late, there has been lots of housing talking. Earlesdon sounds nice, would be happy to move in with anyone that doesn't mind my boyfriend coming up for weekends
    So for people talking earlier - I'd be in

    Depending on the exact date of the post-offer day I may also not be able to make it and would be in the same position as you. I'm also reluctant to move I to halls, mainly because of how expensive they are!

    I'd be up for moving in with TSR people, am excited to meet everyone! I'm fine with boy/girlfriends visiting In agreement that Earlsdon sounds nice, all I really want is to be within reasonable cycling distance!
