    Hi guys,
    I am planning on coming to lincoln to study computer science this september and I have a question. The gateway seems like a perfect option to me. Close, not that expensive, and it looks really good. I would be living in ensuite but with shared kitchen. Anyone living there that would be able to give me advice if this is good idea and opinions about this building? Thank you

    Hey,

    I’m going to be studying computer science this September too!

    I’ve looked at Gateway and it seems really nice, it’s got great quality rooms and it’s really close to. As a bonus McDonald’s is like 30 seconds away!

    I’m putting gateway as my second choice with brayford quay as my first mainly because the rooms a brayford are so much bigger and it’s on the water front with loads of restaurants next to it.

    Not sure if this will help with accommodation opening so soon but still.

    Which one is more expensive? Ive already applied today, chosen The Gateway as first and Brayford Quay as my second I think. Can't wait now

    Gateway is more expensive as you can get a super deluxe room at Brayford for the same as a normal ensuite at gateway.

    I chose Brayford first and then Gateway. I’m so excited though I was getting stressed with the website not working!

    We'll still be close to the computer science building so all good. And me too, I went on it around 10ish and couldn't do anything until like 1 but hopefully we will be able to get first choice.

    I really like though how all accomedations are really close to the campus. I went to see Cardiff University and the closest en-suite accomedation was like half an hour walk from the campus.

    On the website they were encouring people not to get a car because there's no free parkings in the area so I don't know. I am so glad Lincoln has accomedations literally opposite the campus because I can't imagine walking half an hour on friday in rain back to the room.
