    Ok, I've had all my offers and I'm definitely going to Exeter Uni. For accommodation, I'm thinking of going for Exeter and Mardon halls respectively. However, I heard that Mardon is mostly shared (a big no way!). Basically, what I'm looking for is a room thats not shared, catered with laundry facilities, ok bathrooms and people that are relatively friendly.

    Thanks.

    Yeah they are expensive, they are nearly on a par with London, however we still only get an out of London loan . Some of the halls do look really nice though

    Rowancroft at St Lukes has huge rooms - about three times the size of mine here at Cardiff! They were shared though, and non-catered.

    Is that Holland Hall? I hope it'll be ready for 2004 entrants. I'd really like an en-suite room.
    Haven't recieved accommodation stuff, as my UCAS offers have only all come through today: I'll accept Exeter as my firm as soon as the link comes up on the site.
    Yeah, Exeter is so expensive! Plus, an undergraduate told me at an open day that the food is apparently crap...like school meals, and there are very few veggie options (not good for me), but I want to go for catered anyway.

    How do you determine whether an accomodation is expensive or not? What's the avg price for an accomodation? Kinda curious cause i don't live in UK.

    I pay 97.74 a week here for catered standard single room.

    most of my mates in other unis pay about £65, which makes us expensive.

    i was supriesed by how many twin rooms there are here, but if you really dont want to share - state this and they will (nearly always) give you this but you may end up on st lukes - which is great but not to everyones appeal.

    hmm... I will probably go for catered... and I don't really like to share a room....

    Which means... if I come to Exeter in 2005... I will probably get to see ya pretty often ehhe...

    The lad across the road from me is at Exter and is at Lopes - whilst I think the room is Ok, the catering is pretty poor - he wished he'd gone self catering now!

    they're both really nice...but both quite difficult to get into.

    on the food buisness...yes its discusting, but then its not that bad that i dont eat it, and im a fussy eater. so yeah we moan, but we still eat it so it cant really be that bad.
