York accomodation advice?Watch
As for the partying/clubbing side of things, it really depends who you get put with as flatmates. I don't go out too much and prefer to stay in most of the time but I know people who are more into clubbing/going out with friends on a regular basis. Whatever happens you'll find friends and people with the same interests at uni, honestly there are so many different people here it'd be difficult to not find someone you get along with and can be friends with.
If you have any extra questions feel free to message me!
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?
hi everyone! I've already applied for accomodation, and chose Vanbrugh as well! I have an offer for English language and linguistics and will start this year too 😊 I've read a lot about accomodation, and it's true that there are many stereotypes as to the identity of each college... which is why I went with Vanbrugh as well, although it's bloody expensive! if you're unsure whether to be catered or not, I understand the meals in advance deal is good, but it's still an extra cost to add to the accomodation, while some food could at least be paid for with the accomodation in catered. but that's my opinion ! I hope to see you all in September 😊
Hey! I'll see you in vanbrugh then, did you go with catered? And I know it's so expensive! But all York accommodation is tbh except hatfield. And yeah apparently Vanbrugh is good for like arts/music and do a live music night which seems really good.
hey! yeah, I went with catered, it seemed worth it even though I must admit the meals in advance deal seemed really appealing aha. but I guess I'll be able to cook for lunch and during the weekend and holiday, which I really wanna try 😊 what degree are you gonna do next year ? I cannot wait for the live music stuff 😍
Yeah I was so tempted with catered just because its not that much more than self catered anyway, but was really worried i wouldn't like the food. And I'm gonna be doing biology (although i used to wanna do linguistics and languages and stuff), and same! What kinda music do you like?
