seriously, anyone with any doubts...there is no need! nixon is a great place to live. I lived there in my first year, and am coming back there again for my 2nd year. 5 minutes away from uni, and closer to town and the supermarket so no need to get buses everywhere. also easy to stumble home from the union after a night out, and a taxi home from town wont cost too much. i was placed in an all first year flat, which was amazing, but even if you're not, you meet so many more people just around the buildings. i think more than ever first years are coming to nixon as its so practical. as long as you make an effort to talk and join in, then you'll be fine. there is a social happening on moving day - the 28th, 7pm at the dry dock, so everyone come along! in my opinion, its the best accom at leicester!
good luck everyone, hope to see you all soon!
