    Lots of people I know applied to the University through clearing and were directed to the housing event; this year the housing event takes place on the 1st of September.

    My friends who were then placed in housing had really nice accommodation and they even said it helped them prepare for second year when everyone has to find a house and set up bill payments.

    In addition to this they also said it was a nice way of meeting other students from different campuses who were studying different courses, so they made a network of friends pretty quickly during Freshers' Fortnight.

    In general living in Cheltenham and Gloucestershire is great as a student as there are so many bars, restaurants and clubs, and the town has a festival near enough every other week so there is always a lot going on.

    Hopefully you will have the time of your life here, but if you have any questions please feel free to get in touch.
