    So glad I'm not the only thinking about this!
    I'm going to the open day tomorrow too I was going to wait until tomorrow till I decide, I may go wonder around the accommodation to see what they look like properly from the outside

    I know someone who went to Barts for Med and she stayed at Mile End, she said it wasn't a problem not being with the medics
    I'm still not sure though - why does there have to be so much choice!?

    I think it would be nice to be with other medics, but en-suite and being on campus makes Mile End more appealing to me. Shame Floyer doesn't have any en-suites as that would have been perfect!

    En-suite is over-rated.. you won't have it from year 2 onwards so might as well get used to it

    Do many people get their own place or most share from 2nd year onwards? Is it too expensive to afford a place on your own?

    Everyone will share houses, why would you want to live on your own?

    Go Dawson! You won't have another opportunity to live in Central London for that price in your life!

    Also we had a friend who live in Mile End campus, and he spent most of his time at Dawson sleeping on our floors!

    I know all of one person living on her own this year, and that's because her parents bought the flat. So you will be sharing from year 2 onwards in terms of houses, very unusual for you to find/want a one-bed

    Depends on how much you want to spend, I know a few people that had to find their own place when we were freshers and they found somewhere in Whitechapel, so that's a good shout. Other areas that are popular are places like Stepney green, some place close to lectures and stuff

    Or if you want to go further out for a cheaper place then there are lots around Stratford (where I'm planning on living next year), though you'll probably need a tube pass as you'll be in Whitechapel all the time

    Dawson hall. Barbican is like 15 - 20 mins from whitechapel, and it's nearer the places I like to go out. Perfect for this one ^^

    Try the following:
    http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/wiki...re_Finder_Page

    Or start a page for Barts medics starting in 2013 who need to flatshare? I think there will be quite a few ! Also look on FB for Barts students starting 2013
