    Hey all, hope you are well!

    I'm at a point now where I am ready to apply for accommodation, but really cannot decide between an En Suite Studio or a Standard room.

    I don't love the idea of sharing a bathroom with people I don't know, but I am also afraid of being lonely if I go for the Studio option, given that there will be no kitchen or need to interact with other residents...

    What do you guys think? What option have you gone for (those of you that haven't managed to get a standard en suite!!)

    thanks ! x

    I am at this stage too... I am going for en suite studio cause the normal en suites are taken up =.=

    However, I am thinking about the un-social issue too.. but in a way, a lot of my friends don't socialise in their kitchen with their flat mates, they go to other halls.

    IDK! let me know what you apply for =P

    If you don't want to share a bathroom and have the extra money available I would go for the studio flat.
    Yes, it'll be a little harder to meet people, however you'll see people everywhere you go. You'll meet people on your course, libraries, cafe's, launderettes etc.
    Staying in a Studio flat is not the unsociable option, it's more for people who like having their peace of mind and a tranquil environment. And it's also for those who were too late for any other accommodation

    Good luck.
