hey could anyone tell me a little bit about mulberry court or philharmonic cos im thinking of applying to one of these but ive never visited either of them. i like the idea of being fairly central and in self catering. im a very social person so wouldnt like to be way out from all the studenty areas.
erm. if u really wanna choose mulberry. try n get the newer block which is the chestnut house if i am not mistaken. apart from that block, the rest of the blocks in mulberry sucks. philharmonic as a whole is nice. i am staying here now.
I'm glad you changed your mind! One of my mates is in Dale, he's catered n loves it because there's only 2 people sharing a bathroom! I've never checked out the self catered bit...and I have no idea why it's male only. You might find this link helpful...http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/showthread.php?t=226621 I wrote some stuff about D n R in there. D n R rooms are MUCH bigger than Dale (or any other Uni accommodation for that matter).
Did you not the link I already posted? http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/showthread.php?t=86837 Philharmonic is not amazing but it's nice. The rooms are about the same size as my room in R n G - mediumish as far as halls go. The rooms are plain but have everything u need....desk, bed, wash basin n I can't remember if they had a mirror.
When I visited there were lots of social things going on. Being self catered you bond more with a few people than everyone. But there's nothing stopping you from introducing yourself to neighbouring flats and other blocks. What I mean by social is that people actually like going out and it's not dead quiet all the time and has a good atmosphere. And of course you can socialise, Hardman Street and the town centre are close by...filled with many student bars/clubs.
