    Hi
    So, I've been looking online and there are loads of different campuses on site!
    I thought all universities had one big campus?
    Why are there different ones at Nottingham? What do they all mean?


    Ps. It does look excellent there!!

    Different campuses have different subjects. Most of the subjects are at University Park and Jubilee (which is a walkable distance away). There are free buses between the campuses

    Not all unis are campus based - ones in the middle of cities are not. Some are on one campus and some are across multiple campuses. It depends on the size of the area - Nottingham couldn't easily expand on the site its got, so they had to get new ones

    Pretty much everything is on University Park campus. I study chemistry and I've never had to travel to another campus.

    University Park covers more or less everything as others have said.

    Jubilee houses Computer Science, the Business School (including Finance, Accounting and Management etc), the Education School (mostly just PGCE and Postgraduate degrees), the School of Contemporary Chinese Studies, some accommodation for undergraduates and postgraduates, a number of specialist buildings and a vast number of the normal admin and amenities buildings with cafes, shops, Starbucks, libraries and a sports centre.

    Sutton Bonington is all the animal and plant science schools: Vet Med, Zoology, Plant Science, Bioenergy etc. It also has a wonderful Farmer's Market as the beginning of every month. It also has accommodation, standard library, bar, restaurant etc and a brewery.

    Kings Meadow Campus is just an administration campus and houses the university's Special Collections library with delicate manuscripts and things like that.

    Then there's the China and Malaysia campuses too... :P

    A number of universities have more than one campus, it isn't just us!

    Unfortunately you can't choose preferred halls at Nottingham. You can only choose catered or self catered, your location and you room type.

    Chemistry is closest to Broadgate Park in terms of self catered accommodation and Hugh Stewart and Cripps Halls in catered.

    Well done on your offer!

    That's okay.

    I don't know the exact statistics on it. However certain halls have a higher number of en suite rooms that others. Neither HS or CH have that many en suites comparatively to say Cavendish or Ancaster in which it's basically all en suites. In my own experience I applied for accommodation on the first day it opened as it quite literally opened time-wise and I ended up with Cripps but I would never and could never say anything is guaranteed. I think all of the Hall bar two on campus have en suites so you never really know...

    Thanks again.I will bother you with another question: what happens in case of insurance? You start procedure because you have an offer or you start only after it becomes firm or accepted?

    You can only apply for accommodation if you firm the university. Insurance students who then end up getting in on results day start the accommodation application process on that day or later. But you should know that there will be very few of the top (en suites etc) type rooms left.

    There isn't really a preferred hall (unless they've changed the system.)

    I was in Sherwood hall, and it was really nice.
    There are a couple which are near to Chemistry, like Hugh Stu or Cripp Hall. Those two are only a minute or so away.

    But as I said, I liked Sherwood, and the walk was also pretty short.
    Just don't choose Rutland :P Everyone hates Rutland (for absolutely no reason haha)

    EDIT: And congratulations on the offer! You should really consider Nottingham. The Chemistry department is amazing, I believe we have one of the best inorganic departments. They have lots of funding, so you can apply for 8 week paid summer projects (very good experience) and they also have lots of PhDs available, in case your future self wishes to do a PhD. :P
