    Yes, I'm a part time mature student at my local college. How about you?
    I'm doing an Access course at a uni in London. How's your decision making going?! Do you know when we receive more info on finance etc?

    Hi! Nice to hear from you! I have a couple of questions: With accom, if I get a termly license, what happens between each term with regards to my stuff in my room and the kitchen? Is there anywhere to leave some stuff, particularly kitchen things and books? I'm just concerned about having to completely remove everything every 8 weeks, but would like to avoid getting a periodical license to save money! With the periodical license though - does that also cover the long summer break or just the two shorter ones? Lastly - do you keep the same room for the whole year and then have to reapply in each subsequent year?
    Thanks in advance!!

    Hello,
    Do you get to choose in what kind of room you will be allocated or is it random? How would you rate the accommodation kitchen? Is it just a microwave as in some other universities that I have seen or is it a more "functional one"? And does the college lack the atmosphere of the more ancient colleges (no historic buildings, maybe not as pretty)?

    Thank you in advance.

    Is there anyone here at Wolfson part-time (MSt)? How well does that work, and did anyone take a look at St. Edmund's for the same?

    Helllo! I have a termly licence, and you have to completely remove everything from your room and kitchen (although I've left stuff in the kitchen and its not been touched...). There are a few storage areas in college which I know a lot of the international students use. It is a massive pain moving everything, but I think how much money you save makes it worth it.

    The periodical licence lasts for 12 months from 28 Sept or 5 Oct depending on when you start.

    You can ask to keep your room between years, a lot of PhD students do that

    Hello! The rooms are divided into price ranges as follows:

    Price 1: £89.88 - single room, shared bathroom.
    Price 2: £102.62 - single room, ensuite bathroom or shared set.
    Price 3: £115.64 - single room, ensuite bathroom.
    Price 4: £144.90 - self contained single studio flat.
    Price 5: £166.67 - rooms for couples, either double studio flat or large bedrooms in the houses around college.
    Price 6: £242.69 - rooms for couples, large self-contained double flats with kitchen/small living room/bathroom.

    You choose a price range which you'd like to be in, and then they allocate you a room within this range. The kitchens are all well supplied, my only complaint is that some are a tad on the small size (more than 4 people in there makes it seem very crowded whilst cooking!). You have a microwave, kettle, 2 fridge/freezers, toaster, oven with hob and then a large cupboard with your room number on to yourself.

    Honestly, I don't think the college is lacking just because it isn't as old. The older colleges are beautiful and I love looking around them, but I don't go back to Wolfson and wish I was there instead. So to me it doesn't matter, but to others the 'traditional' feel to Cambridge is more important.

    Hi, I am going to Wolfson this year and I have several questions regarding the accommodation here. I wonder what is the difference between the room of price 2 and price 3. I noticed that the these two kinds of room are both ensuite bathroom and the latter one is bigger than the former one. But how much bigger would that be? By the way, how is the block on the west of Lee court with staircase M,N,O,P? Is this a decent blcok to live in? Many many thanks for your help in advance!!

    Hello! Thanks for all the information you gave on this forum so far! I have a question regarding accommodation.

    I am starting an LLM in October and Wolfson is my college. I will only be able to meet the conditions of my offer in September and I can only apply for accommodation after that. My question: Will there still be any rooms left, if I file the accommodation request in September? The college accommodation office does not want to answer the question. I understand that you probably cannot give me a definite answer, but any kind of information would be much appreciated. I know that Wolfson has a lot of accommodation facilities, but I am still worried.

    Thank you so so much for your answer!
