This is gonna be a long winded post so sorry in advance and scroll to the bottom for a tl;dr.
I started here in September, like you do, and was really enjoying it until the past 2 or 3 weeks. I thought I'd stay and see if it gets any better but alas it has not and, after weighing out my odds, dropping out and reapplying at another uni seems the best bet/option if I want a degree.
Reasons for dropping out:
Little to no freedom in internet usage.
Certain teachers unable to check emails and generally extremely patronising when you tell them you've sent the work (I even have proof of this).
Marking of work is bad.
I'm slowly losing more faith in people of a certain authority.
Absolutely stupid rules at night (i.e. due to one incident, security are now sat in the entrance to each accom. building and to have friends stay over you/we need some sort of pass. Again, somewhat patronising and treating us like kids.
So, is it really worth staying for three years and wanting to kill myself or should I leave, have a semi-gap year and reapply to something better? If I do the latter what problems could I face?
I'm quite attracted to Westminster uni right now along with few others. Is it possible to get into Westminster with an Access to HE diploma or not?
All good help with no hints of any elite is appreciated.
EDIT: anon fail. -_-
tl;dr people: I'm not happy at uni and wish to reapply for a 2011 start at somewhere better.
Reapplying to start in 2011 watch

This sounds like a problem with your accommodation. Will you be staying there all 3 years? That's unlikely! Mostly students live off campus for 2nd and 3rd years.
