My place at the University of York has just been confirmed. I'll be studying French and German. I am not from the UK, so I haven't been to any of the open days. Consequently, I don't really understand the difference between colleges and I have no idea how the rooms look. I have seen the photos on the website but everyone on this forum says they're quite far from reality.
I would like to pay as little as possible for accommodation, and I don't mind sharing a shower/toilet . I also like to live in a quiet place, but I want to be close to the library and other important places. Do you have any suggestions?
Have you got yours?
