Nottingham Trent city campus: Byron vs private accommodation?? watch

    Went to yesterday's open day where I decided Nottingham Trent is definitely where I want to go in September. The only problem is accommodation. Most of the cheaper options didn't seem that nice compared to many others I've seen that were the same price at other unis (I get that it depends on the location but the difference was immense) and both Gill street South and Sandby have already been sold out.

    Byron looked really nice from what I saw however from reading student reviews online, many people said staff were generally rude or unhelpful (particularly the cleaner), there was lots of noise from the SU making it hard to study or sleep and that they didn't feel it was worth the price at all. Though, saying that, many also added that it's a good lively place to socialise despite the lack of common room.

    The other option would be to look into private accommodation but according to the uni website they won't recommend companies/ offer discounts until all of their own accommodation is fully booked so it seems very risky. I didn't get chance to look at any open for viewing on the open day but my friend did and said it was really nice and cheaper than Byron. The other negative though is that apparently they only offer 100MB of wifi per month?? Surely that can't be true, that's barely anything?

    Anyway if anybody can offer advice or their own experience, it would be a massive help!!
