    Hi all,

    I am currently in Chantry right now just finishing off my first year, and it isn't half bad. Like all uni's, it is all down to the people you are staying with. The bathrooms are shared but the cleaners come every weekday, albeit the kitchens will get a bit messy by monday morning before the cleaners arrive, however that is to be expected of all residences.

    I've got a place on the fine art course Applying for either Deanery, Kimber or Hamwic halls, probably Deanery!
    I've applied for all three of these as my top choices too
    I chose Deanery as my #1 choice, potential flatmate!

    I'm really excited to move in and meet everyone! There's a chance we could indeed be flatmates
    I made sure to apply as soon as they opened, so hopefully I've got in

    I'm so hyped about it that I keep watching university videos and vlogs, looking for as much information and what to expect.
    I bet it's going to be so different to what I have in mind, but that's even more exciting!

    I'm looking forward to it definitely, and I'm surprised how quickly it's approaching, so little time left until it's right here, and we're leaving home to stay with strangers, and soon to be, friends, for three years. :s Do you know how the floors worked in terms of accomodation? Does a flat consist of something like 6 people? I believe at least in Deanery, and it's just those 6 people staying on the same floor which classes them as flatmates?

    Never said what course you were doing! And do you know when we receive our contracts back for the rooms in accommodation? My friend George and I (Tom, BTW, nice to meet you lol) plan on moving into Deanery, at least we hope like I said, though there's probably a chance we'll be split completely in different houses or something. What music do you like to listen to, and compose?

    I believe that Deanery is split into flats (which I assume means there's either 1 or 2 per floor) which consist of either 8 or 10 people, so there's going to be a good mix of people to meet and befriend! So I suppose you could call them flatmates :P

    I'm going to be doing an Indie Games Design course, which I'm really excited about seeing as the college course I just finished was just an IT course with vague references to games development, and I was left very unsatisfied and disappointed, so I have high hopes for this new course How about yourself?

    By contracts, do you mean our offers? If so, I think it should be some time in July, and they'll get back to you depending on when you applied. It would be cool if on the off chance we manage to get into the same flat!

    I like to listen to indie rock for the most part. I'm partial to a bit of Mac Demarco
    I compose very quirky music that I think could fit into games

    Ah, yes, many people to befriend if there are 20 ish people to a floor! Many flatmates indeed.

    Felt similarly in the course I'm currently finishing, Network Systems Support, barely related to networking, was mostly just IT support and other basic IT stuff. Going to be starting the course of Network Security Management, which should offer some excitement over what I previously accomplished, looking forward to the security side of it, should be interesting, I hope..

    Yes, when we signed up for accomodation, we'd receive contracts back for our rooms once we'd responded to the university with our grades, have you done that already? Maybe we will, would be a fortunate coincidence It would be good to find out who's in which flat sooner rather than later, though, would save a lot of unnecessary items being brought, like having 6 toasters or something.. Though with that many people, it might come in handy..

    Ah, Indie Game designer, huh The composing your own music must help a lot with that then, creating your own atmospheric ambience and all where necessary, I unfortunately don't know Mac Demarco, might have to give him a listen!

    If you look at the Solent accomdation pages you can see a normal en-suite room bathroom and Kitchen in a kind of 360 picture I loved my time in Deanery it's one of my most treasured memory's.

    I assumed that we'd receive the offers of accommodation in July, and you have to pay £250 to accept. The website also says that the £250 will be refunded if you don't recieve the grades/don't get on the course on results day, giving me more reason to think they'll offer us rooms before results come in. Luckily I already know my final grade, so I'm all set for the next 2 months. They need to come sooner ;-;

    I'm so hyped about moving in!

    A bit late to the thread but after a couple of years out of education I've finally decided to head to uni.

    I'll be studying Computer Games (Software Development) ~ as it was quite a rush for me getting everything sorted I unfortunately never had a chance to look around the Uni, mainly because of work, but also because I live a bit north of Manchester.

    I tried applying for Deanery but the option went once I got back from holiday so went for Lucia Foster Welch. How's this accommodation for anyone who looked around/stayed there?
