    Thinking of putting in my application this weekend. Accepted an offer for biomedical science (neuroscience).
    Talybont it my favourite, probably gonna put them top (in the order Court, South, Gate, North, North(medium room)). Gate looks lovely, but its a bit more of a walk than the other. Then I'm also looking at Column hall as I know that it near the biology department. For me, en suite is kind of a must

    I really have no idea where to pick, and how do I firm my unconditional offer without seeing the 💲first? I'm in USA so forgive all the questions...

    How do you apply?! I confirmed my offer for them to be my firm choice today... just logged onto the SIMS thing but there is no option to actually book accommodation? It just says I need to accept them as my firm choice before I can do anything... but I already have?!

    Give it like another day, the system takes like 12 hours to process it and to update SIMS that you have firmed Cardiff I got my offer yesterday, firmed it and had the same trouble all last night but checked again this morning and managed to apply!

    Have now sent off my accommodation choices!

    I have put Senghennydd Hall (I'm going to have to learn to spell that!!) as my first choice as it's close to the city centre and to the Uni itself! (I hope)

    I've gone for the evening meals option, does anyone know what kind of meals are typically available and if you can choose or if it's a set menu etc?


    I'm studying Education

    Cheers!

    They're alright, pretty standard. Plenty of desk space. The shower is more of a wet room than a proper stall like you get in Taly Court, but they look clean and like they'd do the job alright. Small, but you're never gonna get a spacious bathroom in halls!

    I have confirmed Cardiff as my first choice for Chemistry too. I applied to Talybont South, then Court, Gate and lastly North. Apparently South is where it's at! aha

    I confirmed Cardiff as my firm choice today for biomedical science and am debating between talybont gate or South as my first choice accommodation. Which one is more social? as that is a big factor for me.

    Senghennydd Hall was my top choice however I've just updated it to Gordon Hall as I think I want to take my car with me to Uni now and Gordan Hall has parking spaces!! :P

    So many hard decisions to make!
