    Mary chapman flats are in the city and this was my second choice of accommodation and I need to be sure of how often the busses run around this area in order to get to university on time daily. Also I've heard some mixed opinions on the city accommodation so what do you think of mary chapman court?

    Buses to campus don't stop at Mary Chapman Court, you'll need to walk to the Castle to catch the 25 or 26, it's about a 5/10 min walk and buses are frequent there's some great indie coffee shops nearby MCC so early morning lectures won't be as painful! The buses start very early and finish in the early hours.

    MCC is an older property that has had some problems in the past with things like needing to be redecorated etc but it tends to have a really good community atmosphere and the flats are laid out pretty well. There's generally a big mix of people and although basic the flats have everything you need.

    This biggest plus I can see with MCC is the fact it is in the city, most students at UEA seem to stick to socialising on campus and miss out on the really great nightlife that Norwich has - everyone I've met that lived at MCC got to know the city really well, as opposed to the students who lived on campus (and right next to campus 2nd and 3rd year) who didn't really check out the large amount of pubs, cafes, restaurants & gigs etc

    If you are really unhappy with MCC contact accommodation they'd be able to offer you some advice!

    You can get the bus across from Debenhams as well.

    It comes every 15 minutes.*
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
