Today (23 April), I went to an open day at Plymouth and LOOOVED it.
I wasnt very impressed with the accommodation though. Originally, I wanted to have an en suite room, but it doesn't even seem worth the price. So if I go into halls, I'm thinking about going in Robbins halls, just a standard room as its like 100? Pretty Cheap. I have a few questions though about them.
How many people would I be sharing with in a bathroom?
A student ambassador was saying how you pay like 25 pounds extra to clean your own bathroom... I don't think it will be that bad anyway after I've got comfortable with my flatmates.
Okay, but honestly, Id rather stay in private shared accommodation that is within like a 5 minute walk to the uni campus. But that shared accommodation to be filled with first years? Is that even a thing? Are their specific accommodation for first years that's within 5 minutes to the uni. (I don't want to miss all the campus activities)
Private accommodation is so much nicer with bigger rooms and you can normally get an en suite for like 100 pounds a week x.x I just want it to be with people in the same situation as me so i can make friends.
Sorry if i wrote too much!
