hmm.

Lepr does perhaps have a point here. Rootes a party sort of hall so if you're underage you won't be able to go out etc with flatmates. However, as long as you have warwick ID no one gives a rats ass in the union/i've never been ID'd in costcutters.

I'd still however say rootes over cryfield. The rooms there are tiny and it was built using the plans for a swedish woman's prison.

I did it via e-mail. Yeah, I think they were okay with it. I had to e-mail them before to change my date of birth from 1986 to 1987 because they didn't even have that choice on the drop down menu! How rude ^_^


u were born in 1987? so ure what 16/17? im could be just being totally thick but it just sounds so young sayin u were born then, i mean yes i was only born 1985, but thats two years older and im 18 and a bit. thought u had to be 18 to go to uni, or will u be by the time u go? sorry if im just rambling on but spent hours with my head in a book so i cant think straight, u able to clear this up for me??

What's wrong with being younger? A lot of people are 17 too, they also can't legally drink. I may be 16/17 but I'm a hell of a lot more mature than a lot of people.



I'm 16, 17 in Sep.

I'm thinking about putting down Claycroft, Lakeside and Tocil as prefered choices, but I don't know in what order. Does anyone here know how these campus flats compare?

Thank you.

btw Warwick will either be my firm or <a href="http://www.ntsearch.com/search.php?q=insurance&v=55">ins urance</a>. If I put it down for <a href="http://www.ntsearch.com/search.php?q=insurance&v=55">ins urance</a> is there any chance of getting to live where I want? Claycroft, Lakeside and Tocil have 39 week lets and it is essential for me to be able to stay on campus during <a href="http://www.ntsearch.com/search.php?q=vacations&v=55">vac ations</a>.
Is warwick a gd uni coz i was thinking about goin there

You'll stand out like a sore thumb.

And how will a lot of people be 17? 99%+ of people will be 18 or over

Great, Im the centre of attention then!

If I didn't tell u that I'm 17, you wouldn't be any wiser. Yes, quite a lot of people will be 17 when they start Uni, in Scotland. Anyway, that's not the point.

How would you like it I said, erm you're far too OLD to socialise in Rootes, go to Lakeside, Westerwood or something.

I wouldn't feel anything, because that argument would make no sense.

I don't think age is too important, it just depends what you're into. If you want to apply to rootes then go for it. Bear in mind the type of hall it is (lots of drinking and staying up late and having parties if my information sources do not lie) and if that's your sort of thing then apply there. It's sort of mine, I just hate tidying up so I applied to Whitefields cos its close to the union so when I'm pissed bed isn't far away but means that I don't have to clear up in the morning (the noise wont matter, I sleep anywhere). But most people (probably everyone) started drinking before they were 18 and a uni ID seems like a really useful thing if you're underage actually (that sounds bad, but its true), cos I don't drive and don't like carrying my passport around so that's what I plan to use (although I don't get ID'd much anymore, it's always useful to have).

just another point, it is very true that a good time isn't always drinking but for lots of people (especially students) it is, and if you're not drinking then drunk people are really annoying, so that's another thing to bear in mind if you don't drink.

I'll be 17 when I start University. I guess I got in with my grades.
I didn't know there was that much of a different between being 17 and 18 years old.

well, my 2 c/p/lek/zl/whatever.

Legally there is a HELL of a lot of difference. When you're 17 you're still a minor in english and welsh law. Once you're 18 you're an adult.

Still, I've never been ID'd for my age here (only back at home where they won't accept a uni card) so you *should* be fine.

i wasnt having a go at her for it! bloody hell chill.....i was just wonderin how it was possible cos to my knowledge they only accepted people that were 18 when they went! there isnt that much difference between 17 and 18. altough legally speaking there is i.e. cant drink at 17.
but no it wont matter when shes there so forgive me if i gave the impression i wasnt impressed with that.

so yeah accomodation......... cos there isnt enough threads on it already!!
