    Just got an accommodation offer for John Lester.


    (Original post by DanWarbo)
    Hi, decided (VERY late I know) to apply for accomodation, but apparently everywhere but John Lester and Eddie Colman are full. What do people think about them? They seem to be mainly pitched at non-partying healthcare students - two catagories I don't fall into ;-)
    I wouldn't say that. I've spoken to people who've lived there before and they said it was very lively. Plus there are large communal rooms and stuff.

    I also got an offer from John Lester, accepted it yesterday and I'm now absolutely skint! haha. Good to know that it's not as quiet and (dare I say it) boring as some people on this site have said it is! I'm sociable and want to be with people who wanna have fun and a laugh, as well as studying

    Oh, awesome. ! I have an offer but I have yet to accept it.. Waiting for my money to go into my bank (should be Monday) so I can pay the deposit.

    Do they let you know which floor/room you're staying in? Or dya find out on the day?

    Nah, I don't think it'll be quiet and boring. The photos look nice and I've spoken to a few people who have all said it's really nice there. I think it'll be a nice mix.. Because although I wanna go out and have fun, I don't wanna be kept up every night for months, lol.

    Nice one. What course are you doing? No, they haven't said what floor/room I've got, just that a room has been reserved...I assume we'll find out once everyone has been given/accepted an offer. I did have a dream last night that I was put on the 3rd floor and my room didn't even have a window :confused: of all the things to dream about! ha. And yes a happy medium would be awesome tbh, not party central, but not like a library either

    Physics (with studies in North America). If I remember rightly.. You're doing mental health nursing? Sooo excited for the course, but really nervous for the first week.. I'm not really a girly-girl so I think I might be a bit out of place when it comes to clubbing and stuff. Hoping I'm with nice people, rofl.

    And haha, nice dream. Mine was similar but I had a room on an insanely high floor (like 34893493th or something haha) and the elevator was broken.. What a weird dream, lmfao.

    I know.. That shopping centre was decent as well. Most likely won't happen, but I'm ****ing scared that salford uni will get targeted!

    I hope the fire gets controlled before it becomes huge and demolishes everything entirely...

    Lol yeah... Apparently the shopping centre has been controlled & is secure now. I think the majority of it has calmed down now... I hope so, anyway.

    Last year I rang Bramall reception once I was confirmed and I got told which room I'd be in

    It's not that bad an area. There are some bits you might be best avoiding on your own, although I never had any trouble there. It's mostly around Peel Park, there's a short cut to Bramall (where I lived last year). Apparently a few people had their phones stolen, but I walked that way after dark quite a lot alone and when I did see some chavs they just left me alone. But apparently I'm scary (I think it's the accent). From JL to uni is fine though, you shouldn't get any trouble there.

    I'm living on the other side of the precinct this year too, I'd rather live there than Bramall

    No. No it isn't. The woman in Wilko thought I was mental when I bought a load of plastercine there last year.
