    Studying Computer Science at UoL next year, can't wait.

    I am trying to choose self catered accommodation. Here is what I need:
    -Very good social life, I like making lots of friends
    -Good or at least decent kitchen facilities
    -Clean and comfortable

    Low and higher budget recommendations would be appreciated.

    On the accommodation site it says it's part of Oadby, but I have heard others say it isn't part of the student village online, so where is Mary Gee? A little confused haha. If it's in Oadby I will put it down as well.

    it is literally down the road from oadby village. can catch a 2 minute bus or walk 10 mins and your there. Mary Gee is a lot quiter and in a really nice area close to shops and transport but not as busy at oadby village.

    I might put it down, sounds like a great area just worried about not being right in the village, don't want to feel left out, I like a busy area with lots of people to meet.

    Do you know anyone who could say whether there is much difference between the social life living in GMS vs John Foster? They say John Foster is posh but seems a lot of the rooms are similar price to GMS at least in the John Foster house. I am overthinking it a bit though.

    I'm a guy, I want to make friends, go out and I like football as well and will be getting gold membership at the nearby gym. I did put what I am looking for, comfort, good kitchen and self catering, preferably not ensuite but have a washbasin.

    I have put down The Coppice, Meadow Court, JoFo houses and Stamford houses. If you have any recommendations or think I should remove one of them let me know.

    Throughout High School not much but with good friends I could definitely see myself enjoying it much more in uni. I will be interested in going to parties for sure, maybe clubbing as well.

    Just wondering if anyone else has come into difficulty with getting the accomodation they want. I've rejected mine twice now after they gave me Lasdun twice single room, but I'm wondering is it even worth reapplying for accomodation??

    Same, apparently Lasdun is all they have for 2016 now so I will have to stay there
