    Thought I would make a thread as application open on Feb 10th for unconditional offer holders!

    I am looking at Greenow+McCombie as my top choice, but I like the look of Bridges! .. is anyone else deciding?

    I'm a conditional offer holder so applications don't open for me until 26th March but I'm pretty sure I'll be applying for a premium room with shared bathroom in Bridges hall. We were taken on a tour round Bridges on the visit day in February and I fell in love with it!

    If any UoR ambassadors or students see this I was wondering what happens when we order stuff online? Is it delivered to a central address where we collect it from or does it come to the building? Or even to our door?

    Hello!

    All post and parcels get sent to the post office which is just by Bridges Hall reception-just on your doorstep! Post is accessible by a box for each flat and if you get a parcel then you'll receive a slip in the box so you can collect it. You'll receive details of your address when you move in.

    Feel free to ask any more questions!

    I visited the uni which was amazing but didn't see any accommodation actually - I have just read the info online and got a place in McCombie house the other week St George was my third choice - looks good

    Chuck is the bee's knees xD
