    Hi everybody! I'm going on erasmus to Bath next year, and I would like to live in a residence off-campus. Which one would you recommend me?
    I would like to socialize and make new friends, as I won't know anyone. Thank you!

    Hi everyone!
    I am about to apply for postgraduate accommodation in Bath. Most of the accommodation available for postgradute students (Canal Wharf, Pulteney Court, Cleverlands Buildings, Thornbank Gardens) are located off-campus, so I prefer a place that is not too far from the university and close enough to a bus stop (a few minutes walk, I suppose). Could anyone please give me some advice on which one I should go for and tell me a little bit about each area?

    hi, im a postgrad who'll be starting in september too and from what i've gathered from browsing the accom pages, Canal wharf, Clevelands, and Pulteney are the ones which would be most conveniently located for uni and the city, or you could also try the uni-managed houses

    it looks like clevelands and canal wharf are around the train tracks, so it could get noisy...just something to take into account when applying

    Thanks for the information

    I am going to Bath for a postgrad course this September too. Now I'm torn between Clevelands Buildings and Pulteney Court and not sure if spending some extra money on the former would be worth it

    Thank you so much for sharing. I am not living in the UK so your information is really helpful to me. I'll definitely take that into account before making final decisions. It's nice to know someone who is going to Bath this September for postgraduate study too. Btw could you tell me a little about how to apply for the uni-managed housing? I have been searching on the website but still confused about it.

    Yeah it seems to me that postgrad students here are rare

    Anyway, have you applied for accommodation yet? I have, but since my offer will not turn unconditional until July (I'm still an undergrad), there's no guarantee my preference would be preserved

    http://www.bath.ac.uk/study/pg/accom...ing/index.html

    from here just click on the online application form, or alternatively...

    http://www.bath.ac.uk/study/pg/accom...elp/index.html

    ...follow the steps here.

    Once you're registered, just fill the application boxes with your choices, you have 4 choices that you can make. In there, you can choose between the halls and the managed houses. When you're done, click on the next button and you should be asked if you want single-sex or mixed group, plus an option for a statement toward the reasons for your choice. I used that statement option to specify where I would like to live since the managed houses are spread out, and some are quite far from uni. Don't know if they'll consider it but it's worth a try :cool:

    If you're stuck, just hit this thread again and I'll try to help you out

    I haven't, but I'm going to submit my appication soon. Do you mind if I ask you about your preferences? In which order have you put them? I'm still trying to make a decision

    I couldn't find the enhanced standard option in Clevelands so a large enhanced standard room was my first choice. The others were Pulteney's standard room with washbasin => P's standard => Canal Wharf's standard =o)

    Me too. I intended to put Cleverlands enhanced standard as my first choice but didn't expect it had been removed from the list or something, so I just selected the enhanced standard large instead Hoping both of us will get our first option

    Hey guys, this sure is an interesting thread. Even I have confirmed bath for my MSc in Automotive Engg and had no clue as to which accommodation to choose.

    I was debating whether I should take the studio room or a standard one.

    I was considering canal wharf as my first preference followed by pulteney and cleavelands (cleavelands seems to be expensive for what they offering).

    any idea as to which room would be the best. I need easy access to the university and a good social life.

    Theres no trouble with rail noise in canal wharf or clevelands, the rail track is pretty much underground so you barely ever hear anything.
    Canal wharf is very small, I wouldnt go for it for social life as most of the flats are studios/individual flats.
    Clevelands is big and pretty good location, same for pulteney. Both are walking distance to campus but up a nasty steep hill!
