I'm an international postgrad starting in the 2015/16 academic year.
Do most international postgrads start off in the on-campus accommodation before moving on? From what I can tell I know we get priority with on-campus accommodation, but I've seen in this thread some people who have applied for accommodation and haven't had a reply for quite some time, making it hard to plan and organize their move.
Also, does anyone know if there's anywhere to store luggage/belongings for a short time - what happens if you can't find share housing in time for the end of the let period? I'm considering Claycroft or Tocil, but the maximum let for Tocil is only 40 weeks, which won't really work.
What is campus life like for postgrads who go for the 51 week let? I imagine that once the academic year is over the campus would be pretty dead. Does this mean that all the campus services etc. shut down as well?
