    Pretty much what it says in the title, for you guys that are living there what were you experiences?

    Me personally, I can't cook, at all. But I'm willing to learn, also I'll be going back home quite often so I don't want to waste meals if I do catered. At the same time, during exam season I don't want to have the stress of there being no food and what not.

    With bathrooms - for instance, Albion Court - you share 2 bathrooms between 6, is that only 2 toilets, or does each bathroom contain more than one toilet?

    I'm someone that takes quite long in the toilet and have to use it regularly.


    Catered is definitely easier for the first year I'd say, the food isn't amazing but it definitely gives you more time to settle in and a situation at dinner time where you'll be able to socialise and meet people when you're still a bit nervous and new . As for room, in catered as far as I know there's a choice between single study, where you share a bathroom with around 5 other people, or en-suite where you share a bathroom with one other person. Since you said you use the toilet regularly I'd say go for en-suite, the bathrooms are much nicer in those too.
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
