Hi! I'll be starting at York this September and need to decide on a college for student accomodation.
My course will be based over on the hes east part (film and television..), but as a dedicated sportsman I'll be spending lots of time at the sports center, so I don't know if it's worth it to apply for a room in Goodrick to have the convenience of being near my department.

Otherwise I'd go for James College 'cause it's fairly central lively and near the sports center.

Any tipps? would it be better to be over in Hes East or doesn't it really matter...

Hey! I've applied to York for Film and Television as well, haven't received an offer yet though - I have a pretty good idea of where I want to be!

I was going to go for James College as well because from what I've heard from the students is that the only lively places are in Hes East.

When I had an interview and tour of the campus, the guy said that James College was only a short walk from the sports centre (30 seconds I think?) so it might be worth considering. It'll be a bonus for me if I get in, because it's only a tiny bit away from the electronic engineering building!

The sports village (bigger and fancier than the sports centre) is next to Hes East. So by picking a college there you can have sports and your department in one place.

Yeah, Hes East has your department and the Sports Village (which is much bigger, although more expensive, than the Sports centre on Hes West) however, the walk between the campus isn't long and the bus is free!

I'm going to study Psychology, and I also want to live near somewhere that I can work out. Is James College the best option then or?? Glad for some help

Hy guys thanks for all the replies!
Yes , I thought about the sports village (looks amazing!), but all the Uni sports teams will be based over at the sports center so there's no point in goint to both. I'll probably go for James as it's more central and lively and it will create a good social balance to the course over at hes east.

next question: does anyone know if students who already have an offer can apply for accomodation earlier ?

it depends on when your offer turns unconditional. If your offer was unconditional in the first place, or you get your results earlier and confirmed by the university before August 6th, then you can apply on August 6th. Otherwise later in August.

I've applied to be a college tutor as a post graduate student, so I'll be placed wherever I'm successful (if I'm successful).
