    I was just wondering whether to go self-catered or semi. It's just I'm a veggie, and pretty fussy about healthy eating. I was wondering if anyone could give some examples of meals they've had? Also, is there an option for skimmed or soja milk?
    Thanks!

    If you're fussy I would go for self-catered. I was in semi-catered at Southampton and we would get a choice of three dishes (one of which was vegetarian) or a jacket potato with a choice of a couple of different toppings. Milk was usually semi-skimmed. It was functional rather than exciting, not fantastically healthy.

    I didn't mind the food but dinner was served between 5.45 and 6.45pm which I found a bit restrictive, especially if I had lectures till 6pm. The system may be different at Hull, but I definitely enjoyed cooking and eating what I wanted, when I wanted after first year.

    I'm semi-catered at the Lawns currently, I'm not a vegetarian myself but I know people who are and I'd therefore recommend going self-catered. No more said.

    first year at the lawns at the moment.
    Foods fine - obviously not amazing because they have to provide for so many.
    main option, snack option, healthy option and vegetarian option every night. then also a baguette and filling and baked potatoes and filling options.
    a hot pudding and selection of cold puddings.

    If your vegetarian- they do cater for that with an option every night. I think they do advise if you have specific dietary requirements that you go self- catered.
