don't be too choosy.
If you are rich enough you can rent a flat or a single room somewhere around the uni

What about Broadgate Park? They do have a lot of freshers but they seperate returners into their own block so most of the people around you in your block/surrounding blocks will be 2nd years or above?

I'm planning on staying in Riverside next year You don't have to book in a group (I'm not) if you're on your own. You choose which flat you want to be in once you've made an account with UNITE on their website. They tell you the gender, smoker/non-smoker and year of study of the people already booked into that flat.

Yeah a lot of the off-campus halls have returning students in; the booking processes normally allow you to enter additional information so you could just state a preference to be with returning students rather than with freshers.

Other than that you're looking at 1 bed flats. There's quite a few of them around and not badly priced, just remember that you'll need to add utility bills on top

I'm in similar situation, I have a conditional offer, I;m 26 and don't want to do halls or shared housing, I;ve been doing that for past 6 years and that's enough. I've been looking for one bed apartments but only a few crop up anyone know any good sites?

I can confirm this.
My friend is in Broadgate Park. He is third year and was put with non-freshers. However, the people he is with are quite a bit older than him (post-grads, I think.) The accommodation is quite nice though.

ok so i was thinking about nottingham one but apparantly it's very quiet and i'm not sure i want to seclude myself like that

basically i want to move somewhere where they will assign me random flatmates [like at spc] but don't really want a bunch of freshers and i'm 3 years older [took 2 years off education], so yeah.

Thinking maybe broadgate park?

also, somewhere closeby to xercise4less would be decent, which is why i was thinking Nottingham one, as i workout everyday

I've stayed at Riverside Point this year: not a large amount of freshers, the flat's are nice, clean, safe, it has a common room with snooker table etc. Rooms are ensuite and mine is £99 a week. Subway/Newsagent/Pizzeria/Chip Shop a two minute walk up the road and it's within easy walking distance of UP aswell. I'd recommend giving it a look, ran by the same people as SPC.
