    Hey guys, I will start a course in 2016/2017 at the Uni of Warwick and I was wondering what accommodation I should choose between Cryfield and Whitefields. Can anybody give a list of pros and cons or a summary of their personal experience in those places? Much appreciated!

    Cryfield is, over the whole year, cheaper and the facilities are generally better. However, at Cryfield you have to take most of your stuff home at Christmas/Easter (there is a suitcase-size cupboard you can keep some things in, and I believe there's a storage room for international student, many students also leave things in friend's rooms), whilst at Whitefields you don't have to do this. In terms of location there is basically no meaningful difference. So really it comes down to whether you would be using the accommodation over the holidays and whether you consider the ~£700 saved and slightly better facilities to be worth having to pack each time/move out by a certain time (10am) on the Saturday after the last day of term.

    Indeed, resident tutors will try to assign you to the block/flat which they feel will suit you best based on your statement form thingy.
