I'm coming to Nottingham to start a PhD in September, and am considering accommodation options. Could you please tell me...
1) Have you got many places left in ensuite studios for postgrads at Broadgate Park? I read somewhere you are nearly full, but wasn't sure if that just applied to undergrads?
2) If you offer me a room, but i decide straight away not to accept the offer, do I have to pay anything? The agreement clause on the online application isn't clear and suggests I would have to pay £250 but then get all but a £50 administration fee back.
3) Can I apply for a parking permit now? I have to bring my car with me for the purposes of my phd research and so don't want to accept an accommodation offer for anywhere where it might turn out later i can't park. IF i can only apply for a permit once I get to nottingham, what are the chances of being told i can't keep my car with me?
