I hope this doesn't come across as an inane question, it's something we're sort of worried about and I'm thinking that at least some have perhaps had a similar issue.
My boyfriend is going to another university and my question is, is there any place he could stay either on or near campus for when he visits? His university is nearly three hours away (Reading) and we want to go to some events that go on till quite late and therefore, he won't be able to get the train back at those sort of hours. We're not even allowed visitors of the opposite sex let alone allowing them to stay overnight, so it's an issue.
I've been looking at hotels for us both overnight in Colchester but it's hard to find something on a student budget (Even premier inn seems to be over £90 for a night for one or two adults..) and I had no choice in a single gender flat as I was a clearing applicant and well, had to take what was given to me.. No one wants to swap so we're at a bit of an impasse.
If any current students can shed any sort of light on this situation, I would be so grateful...
Tons of places at all these high-ranking unis
