    I am applying for accommodation and my first choice is En-suite Campus, I have put En-suite Village as my second choice and just wondering; Is this a long walk from the campus? Are they any negatives to living in The Village compared to the main campus?

    Depending on walking speed it's probably about 10 mins to central campus. I wouldn't say it's necessarily worse to be in the village, just different... The layout of the flats are different, slightly different style bathroom and kitchen... Parties do still happen in the village though, and a lot of people I know in the village say how they find it's a really great community there...!

    (I personally prefer en-suite, mainly because of shorter walk, and I love being so close to the shop etc...!)

    Not at all, its literally just across the road from the entrance to campus near the sports park and maybe 5 minutes from there to the main square. Bedrooms and bathrooms are a bit smaller in the village, but other than that I can't see any real disadvantage.
