I've been searching for some information regarding accommodation, and they all say pretty much the same everywhere.
This will be my first year studying a PhD at Warwick, and I'm not quite sure about what's the best accommodation option for me.
Some people told me not to stay on campus, because there're not too many things to do and one gets bored pretty easy. Though going through this thread I read that there's a lot of partying and stuff, it seems that it's mainly a fresher's thing (I'm 26, so I don't think I'll be going out every night with 18-19y-os). As you must have noticed, I'm an international student also and I'm quite intrigued by some comments like "it's a very international place", or other comments that make me think internationals live in their own Twilight Zone.
One person recommended me Leamington Spa and it looks very nice, but there's little information on particular properties (forget about pics). Also, some people seem reluctant to stay in Coventry. Additionally, I am not sure if it's cheaper to live off-campus, and if, living in Leam or Coventry, I will probably become a kind of outcast.
Until I started asking around, I was thinking of staying on campus (in Claycroft or Tocil). I thought it was a great thing to live near the Sports Centre, Library, and the Humanities Building, but now I fear I may repent if I decide to live there a whole year.
Thanks in advance and sorry for any grammar/spelling mistakes or odd wording.
