    Hi all,
    Been accepted into Buckingham University starting July this year. Looking for some advice as to which is the best accomm to go for? I'm thinking probably university acomm for my first year and there is a wide variety of choice. Have ruled out Verney Park as i'm doing business (but 15 minute walk realy isn't that bad) should i still consider them?

    The actual Bucks website offers limited information about the accommodation itself as well as severe lack of pictures!

    [If you are reading this Buckingham administrators (yes ive noticed you post on here) a small caption of the exterior of the building taken from a pleasing angle isn't really very helpful when making your chioce of where to live for the next 12 months! Might i suggest at least example pictures of student rooms/communal living areas and maybe a link to location map?]

    sorry for the rant, cheeeers

    Hello!

    We do have this video on our website: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=lYMsC-cCmPk

    Perhaps it can be of some use

    As an ex-student I found all of the halls to be nice. Some are en-suite, some have shared facilities. There are also a number of flats/houses a little further out of town. If you would like to be allocated a quiet block, or something else with special facilities, make sure to ask in plenty of time.

    I'm sure you wouldn't be disappointed with any of the rooms, but I would suggest sticking to the Hunter Street accommodation if you're studying business.

    Are you able to pop by for a personal tour one day? We could show you around the accommodation

    If I can be of any other help, send me a PM - Jamie
