    What was it like for you friend? All I keep hearing about everybody is that it's a great place to live in. I choose it simply because it's city centre but if the supposed party antics are true. I wouldn't mind
    Apparently it is a great laugh pretty much every nights, but over the year the place gets pretty grotty, but everyone says you end up trapped in Frenchay and on a boring day that would be torture for me. However in Centre you can just stroll into town etc etc. And Market gate is still about 500 peeps staying there, so I imagine it'll be mad.
    Hoping after the first year, I will be fully drained of going out and can concentrate more on studying.
    I am all about the experience just as much, if not more than I am there for education

    Ah hope this clears it up a tiny bit.

    Was reading another forum and someone found this on UWE site.

    "We normally start allocating in May and find that by the end of May campus accommodation is fully allocated, swiftly followed by city centre accommodation.
    Allocations will continue throughout June and July.
    We will send you the offer of accommodation again by e-mail at the end of June.

    At the time of acceptance of the offer you will be asked to make an online payment of £250 to secure your accommodation."
    Guess this was a E-mail to roughly say were we'll be + a rant focused about parking of the area...

    Part of the regulations imposed on them from the council or whoever when they applied for planning permission and there isn't enough room for parking for commuting students, let alone people on campus aswell :|

    But tbh I don't know anyone who really missed their car, there's free bus service into town and back, Sainsburys is a 5 minute walk away, at night taxis are £3 each way which isn't bad, and who wants to be designated driver anyways?

    I don't know about parking if i'm honest with you, our flat mates girlfriend brought her car down for like 2 weeks then had enough of it so took it back home. Everyone was begging her for lifts and she was having to try and find places to leave it. The majority of places nearby (car parks and housing estates) have vigurous clamping systems in place so it wasn't worth the hassle.

    Annnnd, I love UWE. I've enjoyed my first year to no-end and can't wait for the second year to start so that I can start all over again. Bristol is a fantastic city for night-life, there is always something to do or somewhere to go. Countless numbers of clubs and pubs aswell.

    I haven't been to any of the other campuses other than Frenchay, but I like the feel of Frenchay. Not that that really matters, because over the next couple of years all campuses are being merged into Frenchay, so there is quite a bit of building work going on atm, not that it affects the students because it's out of the way of the main campus. It's always quite busy, and the SU bar is nice. I can't comment on other courses obviously, but I feel mine is well structured, the lecturers and tutors have been fantastic and always try to help, overall no complaints .

    Awesome, I'm glad you are enjoying it. My course is on Frenchay as most of them are I believe. I appreciate the advice on the car parking as well, thanks again.

    You won't regret it Favell, Rackhay, Waverly are all like opposite each other. Transom (where I am staying currently) is down the road, Nelson and Drake are also just round the corner. You'll find everyone in the Unite buildings will become friends quite easily. It's definitely better living in the city in my opinion. You can go out whenever you like, and the pubs in that area are fantastic. Waverly is pretty much as central in the best part of Bristol as you could wish to get!
