    Hi!

    I've applied to study at Huddersfield in September. I'm thinking about living at Saw Mill, having taken a two year gap year I'm afraid I'm going to be a lot older than a lot of the students studying and in accom - I'll be 20 this July. Does anyone have any reviews of Saw Mill and what ages/ years tend to live there? Or whether they think some other accom would be better suited to me, my my aim is to just meet new people and have a good time!!

    Thanks

    Hey! You're actually pretty young still really so you needn't worry at all about your age.

    I've booked Saw Mill as it's pretty brilliant in practically every way! The people that live there are a mix of every year and you'd be filtered into what year you are in anyway.

    Hey

    Don't worry about it, I'm going to be 18 and i'm thinking about moving to saw mill for my first year! I don't think age is bad at all.. I wouldn't be bothered if you were 20 or 30, it's all about socialising really ! My friend from college is 20, and you wouldn't even think it because we all act reasonably mature anyway! I think everybody's aim is to just get settled in and have an amazing time! I wish you the best for saw mill

    Hey! I paid an upfront deposit of £250 (this secures your room and gets returned to you when you leave, pending that you haven't trashed the place.. then I chose to pay in 4 installments across the year. Cost for my room is £116 however, I paid two weeks ago straight before the price went up to £117 a week.

    Can you pay the deposit in parts or does it have to be all together? And I didn't realise the price rises

    No the deposit has to be paid in a lump sum - then after you have a two weeks cooling period to sign your tenancy agreement et. If you change your mind, or fail to sign the agreement within this time, your room is offered to somebody else x

    I want to ask this question, it's not really to do with accommodation but I don't really understand, can I apply for a maintenance grant as well as a maintenance loan so I get more money to cover bills and stuff. Or can I only apply for one?
