Hi so i've got an offer for 2015 and i want to apply asap for accommodation i just have some questions:

How does the bed and bistro catering system work? Like do you get a set amount to spend each day??

How far away is parkwood

Parkwood vs keynes, ensuite which is better

And finally for the turing houses it says one bathroom per 2 people.. so how many share a house?

Any info apprwciated!!

1) Exactly as it says - " The package includes an en suite bedroom and weekday breakfasts and dinners in our flagship bistro, Dolche Vita, located in Keynes College." This is different to Eliot/Rutherford where you're only getting breakfast included in the price (or if you don't have breakfast, £2 off at dinner).

2) It's really not far, a five or so minutes walk and you're by the science buildings/gym. One extra minute or so and you're at the back of the library

3) It's very subjective, both have their pros and cons. Both sets of flats are very nice - I'd probably put Parkwood over Keynes but there's very little to argue between the two.

4) No idea about Turing, I'm afraid.

Turing is still not finished, I would not apply for Turing at all, not until it's built.

As far as I know, they ended up in off campus accommodation, with compensation from the uni.

Keynes in general is lovely. No real difference between flats/houses, basically the same. Most people I know/spend time with either live in Parkwood or Tyler.
