Alright folks!
My name is Simone, I study at LUISS Guido Carli University in Rome, Italy and I'm coming to Exeter as undergraduate erasmus student on September 25 staying for the whole academic year.
Now, application time has arrived eventually, and I have some doubts about accommodation and that sorta stuff, since I've never been to Exeter and I have no idea what's it like at all. As exchange student I can't apply for catered accommodation, and that kinda sucks because I can't even make myself a decent sandwich, better do something about it I guess. I will be studying at the Business School, so I need to get accommodation at Streathcam campus. The options I have in mind are the followings:
1) Birks Grange Enhanced
2) Lafrowda Ensuite
3) St. German's,
Not necessarily in this order.
The big question: given that even if I'm a foreigner I'd like to hang out and spend time mostly with English people, I am a relatively sociable and friendly person and I like to party and get drunk a lot but I am also very serious when it gets to study hard, where would you go if you were in my shoes?
I reckon all this is quite silly but you know...I hope you understand me haha! Cheers and cheerio,
Simone.

hi just saw your thread in passing so thought i'd give a quick reply!
i think all of ur choices are really "sociable" as you get partying students everywhere! but i stayed in lafrowda last yeat (lafrowda and st germans are in the same place) and this is closer to town (and all clubs are in town) only a 10 min walk! and also has the Lemmy which is a club which is next to lafrowda so very sociable.
Birks is on the other side of campus so that about half an hour walk from town! and far away. also if ur in the business school, then Lanfrowda/st germans is like a 1 min walk from the business school!
hope this helps
