    I do not wish to apply for Bluebell and the likes of that as it is quite expensive. So I was wondering are there any Muslim students (mainly female) living in Warwick. If so, which campus would you recommend me that has the least amount of boys in it (lol!)

    I was thinking of going to stay at uni, if I would be I would privately rent maybe with a family which live near the uni because I think that would be much better, cause you don't come across all the drunk flat mates who come and go clubbing and drink and stuff, plus there's less guys, also privately is much cheaper and there are more options available

    How would i go about to privately rent? I don't mind my flatmates being drunk as long as its not in my room. I just don't want to be surrounded by loads and loads of dudes coming in and out of the campus. Do you reckon I should pop an email to the warwick acc

    I think I would be much better off renting during the second and third year. Thank you though... I'm just thinking of the best campus options for now which appears to be harder than I thought it'd be.

    yeah you could email them but if they don't have single sex there's not much they can do to help you, they'd probably recommend staying privately either a house share or your own private studio flat or something which would be nice

    oh yeah you never know you might just stay with people on campus where there only two boys and four girls or something, so might turn out okay
    or you could just ask the uni for a flat in your own sometimes different unis do that so you'd have your own kitchen and bathroom, but it wouldn't be private renting it would still be through the uni,

    I'm pretty sure they do have single sex flats, as on the application form (when I signed it) it asked me specifically if I wanted to be with all females or mixed. And one of my friends, who is not muslim, is in an all girls flat with girls who are all muslim because she asked to be put with all girls on her application. She's in Tocil. They place you in a flat based on what you write in your application and you can definitely put that you want to be with all girls. So yeah, just make sure you write that clearly because the option is there but once you're allocated a room, that's it.

    Btw, I'm doing English

    Hi! Have you decided where you'd want to stay? I'm a Muslim girl too and I'm having trouble deciding.

    When I worked at Warwick (up until 18 months ago), there was an option on the accommodation preferences form for "single sex only". Usually, the Resident Tutors assigned one flat in each accommodation block as single sex girls as long as there were enough stating this as a preference to make up a whole flat. I would be surprised if this has changed as you won't be the only female stating this preference.

    I'm a Muslim girl too and really need a place with single-sex. I knew before applying that there were places, but the website has not made it clear. I emailed them but they said that they cannot guarantee that and said that they're are a diverse institution and cannot always provide that even if it's for religious reasons.I'm really scared as I've made them my firm and if I get in what am I going to do with the mixed-sex flat??

    How would I find a place to rent privately?

    Also, have you applied, and if you have, which places???
    If you have, have they emailed you back and did they confirm the same -sex accommodation in the email??

    Tocil is the only one that I know which 100% does have single-sex areas because I know numerous people who live there.

    Okay, thanks. I was told by email from the accommodation team that they change every year, is that true?? I mean I am able to apply for at least five, so I should get one, right? I'm not saying that I want a hall with Muslims, I don't mind if its non-Muslims, it's just I want it to be all girls.
    Just out of interest,were there many Muslims in your fist year??

    Also, how many rooms are there roughly per bloc/ hall??

    Thanks for replying
