    Hello! I'm going to be studying Business and Systems Management starting Sept 2016 and I'm really lost about accomodation I'm an international student so I can't really check the uni out beforehand, so I would be super thankful if you share your opinion of the Halls you're currently living in Also, since we seem to be studying very similar courses, can you give me some heads up how is it like? Thank you!

    Hi Hannah,

    How soon before the course should we be arriving? I'm starting a masters this Septemeber (starts on the 19th) but am unsure of when to actually arrive in the city; forgotten when I arrived for my undergrad at Plymouth a few years ago. Any suggestions?

    Hiya

    I was wondering if you know if there are busses from Rees to the Eldon building. As Pompey is so flat I'm planning on cycling a lot but I know there will be the odd occasion when I can't/ it's raining too much ect.

    Also, do you have any general advice about getting on with people in your halls/ surviving in halls generally? XD

    Many thanks:P

    Hiya,

    Susan here from the Information Centre at the uni,

    Loads of students feels a bit nervous before they start but once you arrive and meet others in your accommodation you will soon start to feel at home . There are often social events in your halls to help you get to know your new flatmates and there are student halls reps and student support managers to talk to if you need anything.

    Freshers Week is also a good way to meet people and get involved in uni life and usually you will be so busy that hopefully you won't have time to feel to homesick!

    Good luck we will see you soon ;0)
