Applying for accommodation next month but I really want a room with some city views. I hear it’s the Mary Struges residences that have some good ones. How high do I have to go to get that (floor wise)? Hate stairs (my legs lmao) but love city views a lot!

If you can get Lakeside block A (where I was the first year) then the kitchen has a brilliant view of the bullring and city! Although you will have to be quite a few floors up.

However, I believe there is little say in which floor and block you are allocated to. Also, all the accommodations have lifts so don't worry about that.

Isn’t Lakeside only for returning/postgraduate students?

Not sure! It wasn't when I applied though that may have changed.

Oh, right. Forgot to ask, how was the social life in Lakeside? Is it any different and how many other students were in your flat?
