    Hello, I have been accepted with a conditional offer for Child Nursing to start this September
    Does anyone have any information on where the majority of Nursing students stay in CCCU?
    So whether we all stick together, or it is a mix of other graduates too?
    What is Canterbury like as an area, and any general information about the Uni in itself! Thank you x

    If you join this group https://www.facebook.com/groups/523686884418527/ you are able to find people on your course and could find out there. Freshers week is WEEK 1: 13th-19th September, WEEK 2 (Main Freshers Week): 20th-26th September.

    I haven't visited Canterbury yet, but I have heard its a nice area. I will also be going Canterbury but have a Unconditional offer studying Business.

    Hello, ive been reading through all your comments, i'm starting this year but no one has seemed to mention North Holmes Road accommodation? What's it like there? I have applied for it for my first choice and im just wondering, do you think i can change it or is it too late? And what are peoples opinions about it?
    Thank you
    I would like to be in North Holmes road too! The outside looks nice, but havent been able to see inside. Look on the CCCU website and there are days coming up in August for people to visit (for those who had to go through clearing mainly) but I think I will be looking for a place to look around the accommodation on North Holmes campus its basically the accommodation available on site

    On the accommodation website, it says that the uni accommodation contract is 40-47 weeks. How will we know how long our accommodation length will be? Does it depend on the course we are doing?

    Don't fret about it. They'll let you know when you have to get out of accommodation when it comes round to it. Just means that you might be living in uni accommodation longer than the length of your course.

    I'd 100% recommend putting down that you must have an ensuite when applying for accomodation on the extra bit at the bottom, as nearly every I spoke who asked for an ensuite and didn't get one, and the only people who did seemed to be the ones who specified that they wanted their own bathroom.
    I'd 100% go for Parham, ASDA and Lidl are right next door, Sainsburys is a 10 minute walk away and campus is 15 minutes away

    Hi David,
    sorry this is over a year old thread but I was interested in how you found living in Parham Road? Myself and my boyfriend have applied for the "one bed flat" and the "standard superior suite" there. I'm just curious as to what the luxury of having the one bed flat over the other options are. Thank you so much if you ven bother to respond to this!!

    Apparently, you're allowed one overnight guest for no longer than 2 nights in any 1 week and they have to sign in with the residency reception

    Hello all,
    My name is Line, I am 27 years old and from Norway. I will be studying Biosciences in CCCU from 19th September.
    I am looking for a place to live, I was a bit late in my application and therefore I'm a bit worried about finding anything, so I thought I should ask here.
    I prefer to share with non-smokers, as I have allergies, preferably also people who don't party too much.
    Message me if you need to know more about me.

    Also: I am not in the UK yet, but will arrive around the 9th or 10th of September for potential viewings. Any photos or information sent before this would be much appreciated!


    Thank you!

    Yeah pretty much.... Although you can get them in as long as they come before about ten in the evening. Depends on security but what i said before is what they go by
