Hi, I've just firmed york for english literature starting this autumn. I'm looking for some advice on which colleges to apply to for accommodation? I was thinking maybe vanbrugh or alcuin as they're on campus west. I want to make some good friends and socialise but I'm really not into going out/getting bladdered every night. If anyone could give me some advice that would be great, thanks!

I've just firmed York too, I'm thinking of Vanbrugh tbh cos apparently its quite good for live music. I'm the same as you, I want to socialise but not bothered about partying every single night. It might be a stereotype but apparently Derwent is more for partying but i dont know. Do you want catered accommodation?

Ah that's cool, yeah I ended up putting vanbrugh as well as it looked dead good for student life. I'm gonna do self catered then if goes really badly I think there's a card you can get which means you can get catered meals in a self catered flat. what about you?

Yeah I'd really like to stay in like langwith or alcuin or something but there so expensive I don't get how people can afford them, York accommodation is expensive enough as it it. And im really not sure at the moment, I want self-catered but then catered is only like £500 extra in some cases so its a good deal. Im gonna research that card your on about cos if thats true ill probably go self catered and then get the card. What subject do you want to do?

Literally! unless you want to stay in halifax its pretty expensive compared to other unis. And fair enough, I think its called a meals in advance deal if you want to look into it. I'm applying for english literature, wbu?

Right!? I think i'd hate halifax, its so far away but its the only one that is normal price. And cool, I bet English lit is so good to study at York because its so historic and it has loads of book shops. I wanna do biology, its seems quite good for labs and stuff but also wildlife, like there's ducks everywhere!

Yeah I’m dead excited for English lit, the lecturers were so friendly and didn’t seem stuck up. Biology seems so interesting, I’m taking it for a level but honestly couldn’t hack it at degree level so applaud u !

Hi, I’ve firmed york for this year and was unsure about which accommodation to choose! I’m doing chemistry so will prefer to be on campus west and can’t decide between the colleges and whether to go catered or self catered. Any help would be much appreciated!

Wow chemistry! That'll be great! I was like you but decided to go for self-catered accommodation purely because then if you decide that you don't like self-catered accommodation you can always buy a meals in advance card which will let you be sort of catered. With campus west I think there's like vanbrugh, alcuin, james, derwent, i went for vanbrugh for money reasons. Also this is probably just stereotypes but apparently derwent is the more party college if you prefer that.

Yh I’m so excited!! Biology will be amazing too! Thanks for the advice, I think I’m leading more towards self catered as Im really keen to get involved with all the social aspects so I think it’ll be easier if I’m not so restricted with dinner times and like you say if I struggle with the cooking can always buy the meal card! I’ve been looking at the colleges a bit more and Vanbrugh seems like one of my top choices too along with Derwent as they’re cheap and have a good social life from what I’ve heard. Are you starting in September?
