    Rigg Rut and Bakewell are pretty much identical in every way. Also they're two of the three most oversubscribed halls (the other is Elvyn) so be up early on accomodation application day.
    Knowing my luck I'll be at work at 9 :P.

    Try it, you need your UCAS number.
    It works but says 'The online application process is currently not available to you. '

    Hey guys - here are a few pictures of my room in Robert Bakewell, for those of you who are thinking of applying here, or for those of you who haven't decided yet. I know that seeing some pictures was a great help to me when I was deciding, so I hope some of you will find it equally helpful.

    I would have included some pictures of our kitchen too, but since I live in the disabled flat, it doesn't look the same as all the other kitchens in Bakewell. It isn't really a fair representation of how your potential kitchens will look like, so I didn't bother, lol.

    Anyway, hope this helps.

    Just to add, rooms in Elvyn and Rig Rut are identical. Other than contents.

    ^ ^ Yup, Elvyn, Rigg Rutt and Bakewell are the same - and do not worry about the kitchen, you have lots of room and a table to sit at! I won't take a pic of mine as it is a mess :p:

    What about the hall community? do certain halls do more going out and stuff than other halls or is it down to your own personal preference and the people in the flat?

    Hey,
    I got an offer from Lboro for which I have firmed up. I'm on the CMQS course hence I was hoping if you could point me in the right direction.

    Basically I'm looking for a building which has good facilities, has it's own bathroom and shower (good quality too like hot water works all the time), good kitchen facilities as I'm self-catered, good wi-fi connection and also phone reception has to be good. I'm looking for a accomodation that's cheap but also has these facilities too. Also considering I'm doing CMQS so I would like it close to the locations where my lectures/seminars could be held. That's my main features I'm looking for because the socialising areas,gyms, shops, banks, and other clubs - I'm not too fussed if I'm not too close to them, I could always walk there anyways right.

    Which building would you recommend for me. I was wondering if the Butler court would be the building because I liked the features it had however I would like to gather your opinions

    What exactly do you mean by "cheap"? Would narrow it down more if you could set a budget, eg. No more than £3500 or no more than £4000 etc.

    Also, don't worry too much about living near your lecture halls. The main ones are quite centrally located, all the halls are within 20 minutes walk. You could also find you have lecture in engineering, if you insist on living close to there it limits your choice of accomodation significantly. Location should be a fairly low priority in my opinion.

    Well just let us know the cheapest accomodations to expensive accomodations as well what separates them (if that isn't too much )

    Thanks

    As in the longest walk you'll have to make is ~20 minutes cross-campus.

    I mean how close the hall is to lecture halls should be a pretty low priority. Find one you like, within your budget, and with the things you're looking for, and then consider location.

    I'd be tempted by the first two rather than Faraday; but that's just my opinion.

    360 views of all 3 are available on the Loughborough website; all rooms will be the same.

    Does anyone know which halls have a WHB in the room?
    I'm hoping to go self-catered and thinking maybe William Morris .. are there WHB in the standard rooms here?

    I'm not 100% on which hall to apply to.. i don't really want to spend over £4000 on accom so i think Bill Mo is my best bet!

    You will have to pay the rest of the money yourself if your loans/grants are not enough.

    For tuition fees, the money is paid straight from student finance to the university. You never get it in your account.

    Maintenance loans/grants work differently, the money is paid to your bank account and you then pay your accommodation bill. If your loan does not cover your hall fees you will have to pay the rest out of your own means.
