Naturally I think you should visit and see for yourself at an open day. Those are invaluable. I stayed in a place names Broadgate Park, which is litterally just on the doorstep of the main campus (to the west.) I would recommend them for these reasons:

Excellent laundry facilities.
On-site shop that saves you a 30 minute walk or 5 minute drive into the nearby town of Beeston. There is an excellent variety of services in Beeston.
Good accommodation facilities; unless you get one of the older blocks. They can be more unpleasant. However, as an adult I imagine you would be higher priority with regards to choice of accommodation.
There is a gym and cafe on-site also and a bar. All are decent considering you don't even need to leave the site.
The site is quiet and pleasant.
The site is secure and the staff are efficient at helping you; despite being a private company.

I can answer questions in regards to specific requirements.

Also, Broadgate Park is a lot cheaper than living on-campus in one of the mostly catered accommodation facilities.

I live really far away from Nottingham, about 5 hours, and it'd expensive to go up there again... I think I might take a gamble and pick an Accommodation that I think i may like based on what people have said...also, is Broadgate Park far from the hospital or the medical school.. Thank yoou

Raleigh Park is where student nurses tend to choose because it's self catered and is in between the city centre & QMC/ University Park Campus have you got Facebook so we can chat on there? It would be nice to know someone!

sorry for interrupting
i wanted to ask you how you applied for the accomodation. I mean in the university's site for raleigh park, right at the bottom of the page it says "If Raleigh Park is your first choice site then you can apply direct on the Derwent Students website from 3 March onwards. Make sure you give your UCAS personal ID number or Postgraduate Applicant ID so that you are booked as a University of Nottingham arranged student. (Please note where another site is your first choice you should book using our online application form, which opens at 9.00am on 3 March, where you can still list Raleigh Park as another preference if required). "
So did you apply from the Derwent students website or from the nottingham uni's website? Or did you apply from both?

Once you've put it as your firm choice you'll get an email about accommodation the date when they opened the applications was early March so anytime now is best to book it!

I think you may be talking about Nottingham Trent University accommodation? This is the Nottingham University forum, try asking here http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=2559471

I'm applying by the Derwent website, if we get an offer for accommodation do we have to pay the deposit straight away cause i may not meet my conditional offer requirements for Nottingham uni and i dont really want to be paying £250 if I'm not going to going to the uni.
