    Hello there, I am thinking of applying to Bath uni to study Economics. I am wondering which accommodation is most modern and comfortable. Marlborough/ Solsbury court looks nice on the website, but not sure if the standard lives up to that. I am looking for on-campus, self-catered accommodation. Thank you.

    Hi. It's great to hear that you are considering applying to Bath.

    We have a variety of self-catered campus accommodations. Marlborough & Solsbury Court is on the East side of campus, nearer the Limetree cafe, the Sports Village and the bus depot. Having lived there myself last year, I can happily say it's very convenient - Chancellor's Building is pretty much opposite, and a lot of my larger lectures (especially Economics ones!) took place there last year.

    It has modern interiors compared to some other accommodations, and the kitchen has enough cupboard space for the entire flat, as well as a TV that you can use - we found this really good for movie nights and flat bonding!

    My room was really spacious, and I much preferred having my own bathroom - a huge selling point for me! However, if this is something you're not too bothered about, the Eastwood residences take the form of houses with shared kitchens and bathrooms, and these are right next to Marlborough & Solsbury.

    For photos of specific residences, you can look at our accommodation pages which also include prices. There is also a virtual tour of a room in Marlborough & Solsbury which you might find helpful.

    If you have any more questions about studying at Bath, feel free to quote me.

    Hello again Hollie, just another question for you... I was looking at the university website and it was talking about hall Representatives. I was wondering, how is it to be elected, is it a competetive process and do you know anyone that has tried to/ been a Hall Representative. Thank you.
