I am hoping to go to York uni this September and wanted help about which college accommodation to apply for and also some info about my course.
I have applied for Accounting, Business Finance and Management - what is the course like? what are the people like that do this course? Also as the lectures will be on Campus Easy do the majority of people studying this course (or similar) apply for accommodation on campus east?
I was going to apply for accommodation in the West campus as I am told that it's good for the uni experience and it is not in the outskirts - having to travel to the other campus for lectures doesn't bother me too much.
I was going to put Vanbrugh as my first choice as it has ensuite, self-catered rooms with flat-style layout which is what I wanted, however a past student recommended Derwent as the people who are there are often very nice and the fact that this college is known for parties etc sounds like my kind of thing too. Although the self-catered rooms are all shared bathrooms which I'm not sure about - what is it like having shared bathrooms? What accommodation do you recommend? Any other college ideas I would be interested in too!!
Another question,in the colleges on the West campuses are there many people who do business courses staying there or do they mostly opt for closer accommodation?
Any advice would be much appreciated, thanks!!
What do you think?
