    Not sure. there was not that many college events to be honest after Freshers week. There is refreshers, basically freshers week again but after Christmas break, as well as an end of year party. Most events happen at Sugar which is in town and there is a free bus too.

    As for socials, again, not really. If you join societies then its up to the societies to pick where the socials are.

    Being on edge of campus is great though, far less noise and you don't feel like you live at your lecture halls. Plus its only about 10minute walk from the center of campus anyway lol.

    Depends,

    My flat yes. I had only 1 other fresher in a flat of 8!! But this is extremely rare. For most people i think its fresher only flats, which would have been better lol.

    In my flat, we had 2 freshers, 4 second years and 2 third years.
