Northumbria Accomodation - Glenamara House??!!?Watch
I think I'm heading up north to northumbria next september and I was thinking of applying to stay at Glenamara House. I'm not really too fussed about facilities and en suite and stuff, and I can do work in basically any environment. I just want the funnest halls with the best community vibe to it and the one where I can make the most friends!
If anyone has any clue about the accomodation at northumbria, I'd really appreciate it!
thanks again peeeeooooooplllleee!

as for wanting to be around fun people i dint think you can guess that before you go coz you dont know who will be applying to what accomidation. however which a place in the city center you are close to all the pub, bars attraction and shops and you will be able to other who are partying and such.
that is all the advice i an give you but i hope it helps.
I personally didn't apply to Claude Gibb simply because it's catered, but I know people who live there and I've been and it's quite good. It isn't divided into smaller flats like some of the other accommodation (Camden Court, Glenamara House, Stephenson Building, Quay Point) so you interact with pretty much everyone on your floor. I live in the Stephenson Building at the moment, which doesn't have the best rep, but I absolutely love it, I live in a flat with 5 other people and we have a kitchen/living area together. There are 4 flats on each floor, so you get to know a lot of people not just the ones you live with. I think you'll have a good time with pretty much anywhere you choose, the only main issues are how far away from campus you want to be and if you want catered or non-catered.
i thought claud gibb was good as it's not divided into smaller flats but i want to make sure i'm not applying for one thats just of a really poor quality
If you guys get a chance the best thing to do is come to an open day. They usually have organised tours of the accommodation and that way you can check out the city too
When is the next open day? I seem to have misplaced my letter with all the details :/
The catered one behind the Student Union is called Claude Gibb, its quite good as the rooms are a really good size and althoug it isn't en-suite the rooms all have their own sink which is quite handy. Plus having lots of people ali=ong the corridor means that you can meet more new people,
I'm hoping to get Glenmara and suspect I will as I have a confirmed place so will be assigned in June/July before most people get results.
As Laura said above, the open days are Friday the 18th June and Saturday the 9th October, although obviously the June one is the one you'll need if it's to look at accommodation for September.
Thank you, was crapping myself thinking I missed them all.
