10am on the 8th, thanks for the heads up. I only have one lesson (at 2:30) on Tuesdays so I will be more than able to sit in my college's library spamming refresh on my laptop. Really hoping I can get a place at Polden Court, though to be fair, during my visits I didn't think that any of Bath's campus accommodation was bad at all.
None of the accommodation is *bad*, but the catered offering isn't great. (The accommodation itself is fine, just the food system leaves a lot to be desired).

I think lots of people get overly invested in really wanting en suite, or really wanting a certain halls. Bath is such a tiny campus, as long as you're on campus you'll have a ball - and I know people in city halls tend to like where they live too.

Ah, okay. Would you say there is a lack of choice in terms of food at the university?

Hi guys, I've just created a group on Facebook called "University of Bath Offer Holders 2014" if you're interested I just thought it would be nice to have somewhere to communicate easily and perhaps get to know each other
Anyway, if you want to join here's the link : https://www.facebook.com/groups/7226...6502?view=info
Well done on getting offers by the way!

Well, this is annoying. I'm going to St. Andrews for an Open Day on April 9th as I haven't visited it yet, but the uni I'll be firming is either going to be that or Bath. If I still go for Bath, does this mean I'll be missing out on all the good/popular accommodation as it'll be after the application process opens?

No, but you cut yourself off if you're catered - most people eat mainly in the Student Centre outlets which aren't included

Ah, well thanks for that advice. I may consider Marlborough Court as my first choice now.

Just so you know Marlborough and Solsbury are kind of a package deal as far as applications go, they're treated as one choice and if you get them, you're assigned to one of the two randomly. There's very little difference.
