    I've have my Unconditional for Film Studies, looks really really good and now I'm looking into accommodation and I've got to be real here I am clueless with this stuff so any advice is welcome.

    I've skimmed different accommodation pages and CB1 looks pretty good but I see more than half my loan going on a year there. Is CB1 a good choice for first years or is there an ideal place for first years that isn't too bad?

    And does the maintenance loan cover accommodation and food for the most part or are most students doing some part time as well as their course?

    All of this stuff is pretty daunting without having to think about money but besides that I'm more excited than anything to be in Cambridge for 3 years studying something pretty interesting it's such a great place seemingly full of opportunity and easy access to London and pretty cool people.

    Oh, that's good then!

    It's probably best to contact our Cambridge accommodation team for information about internet speed or anything else you may want to know about CB1.

    You can call them on 01223 698900, or email them at [email protected].

    It may be a good idea for you to check your junk mail - occasionally our emails can end up in this folder. If you still can't find it, you can contact our admissions team on 01245 686868 or [email protected] who can resend it to you.

    I hope this helps.

    Hi Mossco1742

    Glad to hear you'll be living at Anastasia House. It is possible to view the profiles of people you'll be sharing a flat with - just log on to the portal and you'll find the option to do this there.

    Is there anything else I can help with?

    Hi Sug4rkane

    Yes - once you've applied for you accommodation, you'll be able to view the profiles of people you'll be sharing a flat/kitchen with.

    I'm not sure what you mean by 'if it actually mattered which room you reserved if you weren't getting a studio' - could you please clarify so I can get you the information you need?

    Thanks!

    Hey Natalie thanks for getting back to me, what portal would I find this is it the accommodation portal as that doesn't let me look at the flats or profiles of flat mates thanks
