    I think as long as you've notified the uni I think it's all sorted. Don't know if it's through phone or track I'm not sure

    [QUOTE=SeanFM;63119055]Hi guys,

    This thread is for people firming the University of Bath this year.

    Accommodation opens up in April if I remember correctly, and the

    Some information about accommodation:

    Some information can be found here. The link to the application is there already, but it's not open yet. Don't worry if you've left it too late (but before the guaranteed deadline) and are faced with the prospect of living in John Wood - chances are you'll get offered a spot on campus in August because of people not meeting their offers or deciding to pursue other things. I only had John Wood left but got upgraded to Eastwood in August and it's not that bad, honestly!
    As an icebreaker:

    What have you applied for?
    Physics (because wooo)
    Where are you from?
    Horsham (kinda near gatwick?)
    What are you studying at the moment?
    Physics maths further maths and AS chem (because i liked doing 4 in first year but couldnt justify more history)

    What accommodation(s) are you interested in?
    Eastwood, anything but a tent

    No idea, rlly? Well you should probably spend more time on the internet 😂😋🍻. I am not in the UK and I've been desperately trying to find out about public transportation in Bath to figure out if it is more efficient than getting a car. You paid £200 per year!? Man that sounds cheap! What's the difference between Wessex and First busses? Is one more crowded, older, slower... than the other? I'll be living in the city close to thermae spa so what's your insight? Thanks a bunch
    Hi!

    I'm a second year student at Bath. I would advise against getting a car since you live so close to the centre as you would have to pay for parking and it might be difficult to find parking close to where you live. I have friends who will be living close to there who have said there is no where to park near their house (they are living above a bar).

    First bus comes more frequently is more reliable. Wessex is cheaper but comes less often. That is the only difference. They are both equally as crowded during busy times (e.g. in the morning going up to campus, and in the evening travelling back to town).

    In a bit of a pickle, I chose the quads as 1st choice accommodation but didn't consider how much maintenance loan I'd get so I didn't really bother looking at the different prices which is a bad mistake. Basically I'm getting the lowest loan available and would need an additional £1.5k to sort my accommodation out let alone finding money for clothes, going out etc. Any ideas on what I can do since they probably already sorted my room out? I'd preferably want to move to Marlborough/solsbury court which is my 2nd choice

    Get in touch, it's worth a shot - nothing to lose. I would mention that you just can't afford it and need a cheaper accommodation, preferably Marlborough/solsbury.

    Its my grandparents old house, going to be moving in with my girlfriend who's starting a PhD next month. Looking forward to it but just a bit worried i'm going to miss out on a lot as it seems quite a few socials and what not are organised by house! Hoping I make some friends early who will adopt me as an honory member!
