    Hi,

    I'm going for Self-Catered accomodation as well!... i'm not the type of person who fits into a catered residence ... i like to eat when i want, sleep when i want, do wat i want when i want ... that's why self catered accom was my obvious choice.

    Having said that, catered accomodation was rather pricy for me too ... pollock halls look awesome though, and from wat i hear they have excellent facilities, and living in them is like living in a top hotel!

    It was in january time that i applied ... but from wat i can remember, Morgan Court was my first choice. Let's hope i get that!

    My first option was Warrender Park Crescent. Should hear from them soon, I hope!

    I think the self catered flats are supposed to be very good in comparison to other unis. I've visited people at the uni recently and they reccomended Warrender Park Crescent and Darroch Court as the best two.

    Personally, I'm going self catered next year - any one else doing geography?

    I know I probably seem paranoid, but am I correct in thinking that 16th August is the deadline for accommodation forms? It's just that it seems later than other unis, and other people seem to have got theirs in.

    Yea well me = not used to food in which the main spice is fat! But I bet in a year, all I'll be eating is fish and chips, or chips inside some sort of pie :eek: I still can't quite understand that... LOL

    I think they do, just as long as it's something you can burn

    But I can cook, it'll be weird cooking just for myself, I usually cook for our whole family.. and don't ask how many of us there are!

    If you're good at cooking I'm sure you'll find plenty of friends who're willing to let you cook for them....

    When my mum was at uni, she had a group of friends and the female ones would do all the cooking while the blokes would do all the housework. Sounds like a good arrangement

    Chips in a pie? Sounds interesting :eek: Just wait til you get to the haggis and deep fried mars bars in batter {attempts to stop drooling}

    Sad that I would be completely in favour of this arrangement (as long as I don't do the toilet because that just.... :eek: ). I actually look quite fetching in a pinny and marigolds!!!

    Sounds good to me too! And someone else would have to do the dishes too

    If Edinburgh is our insurance choice, are we still supposed to have filled out that blue accommodation form we received? If so, oh ****.

    Im doing a gap year but have accepted Edinburgh as my first choice So glad I got an offer-I love it up there! Only person from my yr going tho which is a bit odd...

    Anways! As Im doing a gap year do I have to send in my accomodation form? Ive tried to contact them a few times but the office is always stupidly busy.

    Self catering is the only way to go!! Though Pollock Halls are great and close to things and they do have a good atmosphere....

    Um... yeah. Not wanting to cause you undue stress, but I sent miny blue form in (insurance offer) many months ago. But I haven't had anything confirmed, so maybe the deadline hasn't passed...?

    A group of my friends, all with uncon. offers, had their self-catering flat confirmed about a month ago. They loved Darroch Court but heard it was the most difficult to get into. Can't remember where they're going, somewhere near Commercial Street. Possibly.

    I applied for Pollock Halls - not sure sharing everything with thousands of strangers is going to be easy to settle down to, but never mind .
