    Hi all, I'm starting at BCU in september 2017 but haven't actually seen the accommodation yet (I didn't realise that my visit day was the same day as my interview). I've looked at the accommodation on the virtual tour, but University locks only has animated pictures of what the rooms will look like. I was hoping that any current students or applicants might have some photographs of the accommodation to help give me an idea of what it actually looks like

    Thanks, it looks amazing! I'm going to apply for it and visit there during the July open day. It should still leave me time to change if I end up hating it

    The accommodation is really nice although I did end up leaving before Christmas due to a couple of factors.
    1. It worked out a lot cheaper for me to commute an hour and a half to uni, as I’m only in 2 days a week
    2. The walls at locks are paper thin, if you’ve got people playing music in the flat above or below
    3. I didn’t really get on with my flatmates as much as I would have liked too, which made living there super boring.

    I think if you end up with a good group of flatmates and don’t pull the short straw on the flats near yours it’d be a really nice place to live
