    Probably a plus. The older halls generally have the plus options but that is by no means a guarantee.
    Fair enough, thanks!

    Do you know if you can only randomly reallocate once if you don't like the hall you get?

    If you are unhappy, you can ask to be switched but then you must stick with whatever they give you next.

    Ah right.

    You seem to be a hive of great info Would you recommend any particular halls or any to change from if I get them?

    Thanks, I promise I'll stop bugging you now

    Haha thanks, although it's technically my job when I'm in uni which is why I know so much :P

    To be honest, any hall that you end up in you will love. You will defend it against all others for the entirety of your degree even if others think it was a bit rubbish. Either way, you don't spend all that much time necessarily in your hall apart from meals and sleeping, there's plenty of places to go on campus.

    Generally speaking (and this is in no way me choosing particular halls), people tend to prefer the older halls (Hu Stu, Cripps, Lenton & Wortley, Lincoln and Derby). They are more aesthetically pleasing overall and slightly more centrally located but the rooms types themselves don't vary all that much across the campus. There are no 'bad' halls, just less preferred ones and the other halls are by no means bad. They're newer purpose built accommodation that is mostly en suite, it's easy access to the gym and they have a range of cafe and bar type facilities nearby.

    However my heart will always belong to Cripps (and it is the best hall)......

    Do feel free to ask any other question that you have, it is technically my job and I'd rather you ask than be left wondering!

    That's good to hear, thanks!

    I'm hoping for Cripps because it's closest to physics

    The student giving us a tour of the accommodation today on my UCAS applicant day said she was in Lincoln in her first year, and that it was really nice.

    I'm pretty sure there's a video of Lincoln on the accommodation pages on the uni website.

    I firmed whilst at school, and then got home and applied for it. You don't need to wait for them to email you, just go to:

    https://accommodation.nottingham.ac.uk/default_all.asp

    Then log in with your UCAS ID and date of birth (eg 12jun96)

    Neither have I! I've been looking all over for more information before I confirm it but couldn't seem to find much, sadly. What type of room have you applied for?
