Chances of getting a place on campus seem to be measured by "how many Home/EU postgraduates applying to live on campus" divided by "number of places for Home/EU postgraduates on campus". They do a random ballot if oversubscribed - essentially you either live on campus or you don't as you have the same chances of getting a place on campus as a UK (or other EU) postgraduate
. You need to remember to apply + pay the deposit before the end of this month though.
Tocil (along with Claycroft, Heronbank and Lakeside) have single sex flats, flat number vary - I'd say single sex flats would more likely be in 6 and 9 person flats than 12 (unless demand is high enough). The majority of flats would be mixed - you can choose if you want a mixed or single sex flat - and if you would accept the opposite situation, should the first not be available.
Bathroom sharing in Claycroft: This is taken from the guide at the start of this thread.
[field="Bathrooms" Claycroft="Claycroft"]"You share one full bathroom (toilet, sink, bath with a shower over it) between two bedrooms - you have a mini front door off the main corridor that links to a vestibule with three doors - two bedrooms and one bathroom."
Thanks to georgia

At undergraduate level it seems that Heronbank and Lakeside seem to have quieter surroundings and quieter people (perhaps no less sociable but there are more 'borderline' cases). This is because HB and LS are 39 week en suites that are far away from campus - they are much more expensive than any other halls of residents over the year so perhaps some sort of stereotype forms here. However, at postgrad level this is slightly different as all lets are 50 weeks (I think, unless Tocil do 39 weeks for postgrads) so the difference would be less. Tocil seems to be more lively at undergrad level, perhaps because of the proximity to everything, but you can't 'roam' about unlike in CC/HB/LS.
Erasmus students - I don't quite know the answer to the question. Full time undergraduate Erasmus students don't get a place on campus, part time undergraduate erasmus do get a place on campus. Postgrad Erasmus would probably be mixed in with all the other postgrads.
