    "There are some horror stories though as accommodation is often over-subscribed and some students get temporary accommodation in libraries and common rooms and even kitchens! This is usally for a maximum of a couple of weeks but we did hear that some students got left in a condemned annexe all year." aaaah!! LOL.

    nah, they're building a block with 400 rooms or something all for first years so shud be no problem for places now. theres no info on there tho about self-catering really...ive been guaranteed that i WILL get self-catered over catered!

    This is what is worrying me quite a lot about universities actually, the accommodation side. I feel like if you mess up on this, and end up in dirty halls every night, it will put you on a downer. All I really want is an en suite, clean and modern building with maybe a gym nearby and at least 250 people. And it has to be on or within 3 miles of the university campus.

    Is this possible?
    I wouldn't worry about it too much - if you do have a real problem with accommodation you can probably move. I know lots of people who changed to different accommodation at Essex and all of them are much happier. Personly I don't think en-suite is all that important - see an earlier rant.
