As a late accommodation applicant, the only options left for me are Raleigh Park and Albion House (that are self-catered and affordable, anyway). I ideally wanted a standard Broadgate Park, but all spaces are taken, so if anyone has a standard BP room they're trying to get rid of, I'd love to take it off your hands!
Anywho, I'm a 2nd year student (was considering dropping out so didn't want to commit to a house e.t.c.), so I have some vague knowledge, but not much as i stayed in SPC last year. I had a friend in Raleigh, and there seemed to be a lot of international students there. Due to this, my friend found that the majority of her flatmates were only in the flat for one semester (which resulted in an emptier flat/a struggle to make friends). It's also away from University Park, which could potentially be a bad thing (and an issue I had with SPC). The move in date is also September 24th, which I'm sure is pretty late..?
As for Albion, well, I know nothing! The fact it's near UP is tempting, and the fact it's technically part of Broadgate (my ideal accom) is too. I've never really heard much about it though, and am worried it'll be pretty dead and boring.
Based on anyone's knowledge/experience, which would you chose? If I were to pick Raleigh, what would be best? A house or a standard plus (they're the only two left)? I'd love to hear anyone's first-hand experience with Albion as there isn't much around about it.
Who do you think it is...
