Self catered!!! Im self catered in butler, and theres no chance I would go catered, love the freedom of cooking what you want when you want. And if you dont feel like cooking you can go and eat in the catered bits!!! Heard so many bad feelings towarss the food aswell, I would avoid it!

I've been both catered and self-catered and Holloway, and I think I'd lean towards being self-catered (especially for first year, at least). The catered food isn't great and it is nice to have the flexibility of being able to eat whenever you want. However, there are certainly advantages to being catered as a finalist, I found, just in terms of saving time when work piles up, but as a fresher self-catered might be more suitable.

Self catered, much more freedom for what you want to eat. I'd hate to have just a few options like in the dinner queue at school.

You're technically not allowed, and if the university finds it they can ask you to remove it, and they can possibly give you a fine. However, I had friends who kept a mini fridge in their room and didn't get caught (though they had to hide it for room inspections) so it's up to you really.

Wow, really? Thats a shame.

Do you find the fridges in the kitchen are large enough for everyone?
Is there any particular way there divided? e.g. one shelf each.

I found that there was enough space, and yes, it was usually a case of one shelf per person (though whether your flatmates actually stick to that is another matter, haha).

In my accommodation there isn't enough space for everyone realistically in the fridge and freezer, when looking for accommodation it may say how many fridge/ freezers are available. Ours is only one between 6 people so we don't even get a shelf each so it can be hard.
