    Going off the facilities in the prospectus for York. I really should visit but I don't have the time to at the moment. I might see if I can go there over this weekend.
    I would hun. It would probably help you decide which one to go for. Just to let you know aswell, t says in the prospectus and accomodation booklet for Leeds, That EVERYONE going to Leeds in their first yr will be garenteed some sort of accomodation even if it's not your original choice. You'll still get accomodation.

    Have a look at both university websites too hun and see which one you prefer. But the best option is probably to visit them at least once, have a good look around and decide from there.
    Are there are differences in the course that you wanna do? One might do something that you really like which may tip the balance. Like modules you study or field trips or something along them lines.

    There's one module I really like at York but it's not until the third year so it's nothing that would tip the scale.

    I know I'm guaranteed accomodation at both universities, just I've seen friends have the shabby accomodation and I don't want to be in that position if at all possible. I better go and take a look around. If I accepted Leeds I'd probably choose the Tannery as it seems to be fairly nice.

    I'm thinking of rock clmbing, sky diving, horse riding, zoology, and maybe a sport, and street dance. But there isnt enough hours in the day to do all that stuff. But theyre all the ones that I wanna do. ha ha.
    I'm sure they'll be plenty to do in freshers fair though. Just cant wait to finally hand my notice in at work and say enough and start afresh
    Wow, that would be a busy schedule indeed! Sky diving sounds amazing if a little... ok, very scary :p: What do you work as, is it that boring?

    Thanks for that list, very helpful! Does that mean we have to bring along a toaster/blender etc?

    Oh also - what about a vacuum cleaner?

    Yes, but I'd advise waiting until you get here (unless you can find your flatmates on our facebook group once you get allocated)or you may end up with 5 toasters and blenders.......
    And yes, there is a vacuum cleaner - sorry

    That's an interesting point. I would assume there is but I suppose as they supply a washing up bowl, there's a possibility there isn't. I'll ask the residence staff tomorrow.

    Thank you! When I went to visit my friend at Northampton she didn't have one, and my Mum said she didn't have one at nursing college when she went (used a washing up bowl, although this had to be like 30 years ago), so I was just curious :P

    Sorry to be a hassle again, but is there a move-in date for Leeds/Lupton? My Mum's nagging me because she wants to book a couple of days off work to drive me up :P

    That's weird! It's a link to the English at Leeds facebook group Try searching for it. I put down James Baillie, meaning i could end up anywhere really since it's so over subscribed. God loves a tryer though :P Are you fairly confident about getting the grades? I'm bricking it

    Oh nevermind, it's just worked I haven't applied yet but Devonshire is the only one I really like, but I'm sure we'll love it wherever we end up! Ha no not confident at all :/ I had to resit one Psychology module in January which has brought me up to AAA for AS (I only did 3) but everything seems so much harder this year. What subjects do you take? x

    I've asked the site staff at Lupton and they have confirmed that yes, there is definitely a plug in the kitchen sink.

    The contracts at Lupton will start on Wednesday 14 September but the majority of people don't move in until the weekend of 17/18. There's not really anything happening before the weekend - it's just handy to be able to move in earlier somethimes if your parents have to drive a sibling to another uni at the weekend or if you have a special orientation course (e.g. for disabled or international students)

    I'm a care worker. It's not boring, it's quite rewarding, but it's just not what i want to do. I wanna work with animals. it's quite heartbreaking too. But never mind aye i'm on the right path to what I wanna do now
