What is the best accommodation for first year? I prefer the idea of being in the student village, but I've heard that it's expensive - I only have a small loan and will probably go with shared bathrooms because it's cheaper (and self-catered). Are there any shared bathroom rooms in JoFo or are they all en-suite?
Also, the fact that it is so far away from the university is putting me off. But then people are saying that, in city living, the people there are mainly postgrads/older students and that the student village is better for student life/making friends. Is this true?
Once you've firmed your offer (I have, but the uni hasn't got back to me yet), do they email you with more information about the accommodation? All the information provided on the website seems more clumped together and it's hard to differentiate.
And actually passed?
