    Tocil is where I was in year 1, absolutely loved it. Great position on campus, close to everything and nice flats, lively and fun too, but not to a horrible extreme.

    Jack Martin- had one friend in there, was really nice accom but not very lively, though this probably depends on who shares your flat.

    I didn't like Rootes (friends were there) though it is one of most popular party-accoms. I just didn't like the layout of it, felt like a prison.

    Claycroft looks nice too, though I have never seen inside it.

    First year is amazing, I am so jealous of you guys all just about to begin!

    tocil sounds really good. i'm after this "family-feel" even if it does sound cheesy. do you get that at tocil? and is there like a general stereotype for people who live there?

    Tocil gives a good community feel, at least it did when I was there. You tend to not only socialise with the people from your floor but also the floor above, which is nice. The rooms are an OK size too, with a full length mirror (dont have one this year and it is annoying haha, in Hurst atm). It made first year very fun to have a nice group. Tocil doesnt have a common room however this wasnt a problem at all, as people tended to socialise in each others rooms or in the kitchen which was reasonably sized. It is good fun and in my opinion is a nicer layout than Rootes (Tocil has flats with L-shaped corridors on each floor, usually 12 people on each floor, 2 or 3 floors per flat, instead of continous long corridors like in Rootes)

    It depends who you live with but you can write on your accom app what things interest you so they can try to place you with like minded people!

    I'd like to have an ensuite-room, but as everyone keeps pointing out that it's not very lively in those houses, I'm a bit discouraged...

    but tocil will probably be my first choice if I end up firming it. the best part about it is probably that it's right next to the gym

    i hope you get a wash-basin in your room?

    No you don't get a sink in the rooms in Tocil. This wasn't a problem for me in first year. I do have one in Hurst this year and it is quite handy actually, but I didn't miss not having one in the first year. Most Tocil flats have 3 bathroom/toilets. (2 with a toilet and shower and 1 with a bath and toilet, all have sinks in, so there is almost always one free!).

    Tocil is right next to the gym, that is another reason I loved it...and I was in the flat right next to the gym xD I applied for Tocil again this year because it was next to gym and I liked it lots, but I got my 2nd choice of Hurst instead (which is OK, but not as nice as Tocil was).

    I'm actually SO excited at seeing Warwick this Wednesday. I really want to have a look at JM, AV, Claycroft and Tocil to probably decide between these. I've almost convinced myself I'm going to love Warwick and that I'll firm it, haha.

    I have not taken the offer officially yet (By the way, if anybody knows whether I can firm Warwick right away - and thus rejecting two universities of which I haven't heard from - please help) but Warwick is definitely my first choice and I'm 95% sure I'm going to meet the offer.

    Course:
    Mathematics and Physics (FG31)

    I have following offers:
    Warwick Business school: MSc Finance and Economics (Condition 65% Indian equivalent).
    Warwick University: MSc Economics and International Financial Economics and MSc Economics.

    I really want to take the offer for MSc Finance and Economics but I haven't been keeping well and will not be able to appear for my examination and thus fulfill the condition.The option of deferal is not available for this course.
    My second choice would be MSc Economics and International Financial economics.Do youthink i will be able to defer this offer on health grounds?also if i defer this offer for next year reapply for the WBS course would that be allowed? kindly guide me.

    Yay
    I'm pretty much considering the same as you accomodation wise, but not Claycroft, but I can't remember why I ruled it out
    I love Arther Vick, but I am scared it won't be lively..!
    I'm visiting Warwick on the 24th Feb

    I'm going on the 10th, already been to an Open Day but just thought I would get a better feel for the place before going there and it should allow me to make a more informed choice about accommodation.

    I'll probably firm management soon

    I'd prefer to have a peaceful room but again, to have party people somewhere close^^ I mean, you can be in AV or JM and again go to Rootes for some fun time, right?

    Anyway, I just hope some of you guys will visit campus on open day and be my eyes-and-ears (:
