I have accepted an offer through clearing and understandably I was unable to get my choice of accommodation.
I currently have two options and I’m torn between them, both have their own pros and cons.
Pro- On campus
Con- Shared kitchen (not a problem) and bathroom (could be a problem) between 8 people, single bed, very small room
Pro- En-suite, Double bed, decent sized room
Con-30-minute bus journey away (provided with free pass)
I feel I will have a better experience staying on campus with other students etc. I am not sure about sharing a bathroom, that is my main concern. I would prefer the privacy of having my own bathroom to use whenever I need. I am not particularly keen on being in the situation where I have to use a dirty toilet/shower after someone else.
There will be other freshers in the building for the second option but also students from other universities. 30 minutes by bus is quite a long way away from campus too meaning it is possible I could miss out on benefits such as working in the library late, return trips during free time between lectures etc.
I am really unsure on what to do. Has anybody got any advice or thoughts, I would really appreciate it!
Would you pay less for a humanities degree?
