Hi there!

Union Street is where I might be looking to stay come September. Although it is off campus it is only about a half an hour walk or so to the uni. There is also a number of busses that run up to the uni. From what I have heard students enjoy it there as it is close to the town.

It is also a benefit that it is all nursing students making it a bit better for studying.

Hope this helps a little!

Hi!
I'm in the same situation. I'm studying abroad in Fall 2014, and am from California as well. I also was offered a spot in Union St.! Flat 6A Room 3 Union Street. What's your room?

Hi Carah and Jourdaine, I'm Brittany and coincidentally from California too (northern). I will be in Union Street 6E, so I'm bound to eventually run into you Jourdaine Did you two want on campus housing? At first I did, but then I realized I rather be in town, so I ultimately chose this accommodation.

Hi Brittany!
Nice! I'm from San Diego. And I'm sure we definitely will hah. My first choice was on campus housing, and I got my second choice which was Union Street. I thought it originally might be easier to meet more people if on campus. But either way it's going to be an amazing time! I'm sooo excited

I've just moved out of 6A Union Street, honestly it's a lot better than being on campus. The porters are a lot more lenient and everyone in 4-6 Union Street gets to know each other really quickly and you'll all travel to uni together. Rooms are a fair bit bigger than those on campus and the kitchen is enormous in comparison. You also won't have to pay for taxis to town on nights out
