Hi - sorry you haven't had a response to this yet. I'm just going to bump the thread in the hope that someone sees this and can help

Why do I do this?

The Universities forums get a lot of questions that are unanswered. This is often because the OP's thread got missed - bumping threads gives them another lease of life and frequently results in someone seeing it and being able to respond

If you would like to help with unanswered questions check out the first part of the list here and don't forget the second part of the list here.

Or if you have questions, get in touch with Puddles the Monkey.

I'm there now and I'm going to be there again next year - personally I think it is totally fine.That said, it does seem to be less social then on campus accommodation. I think this happens because in first year everyone in your flat is likely to be in a similar situation (just starting out at university, doesn't know anyone) and is keen to try and make friends and meet other flatmates. I'm not saying that isn't a priority for some people at Chancellors - but people there will be a mix of 2nd and 3rd years, who already have their own group of friends. I have chosen it for next year, but I think among the majority of 2nd years there, are those who for any reason where not able to get a house rather then that they wanted to be at Chancellors, as such, possibly likely to be a little bit less social? Being located off campus it also means a lot of people head into campus in the morning and stay there all day before returning in the evening, on campus accommodation people do head back for a free hour so there are less people around in flats in Chancellors in the day. Although that might also be because I went from a bigger flat on campus to a smaller flat in Chancellors.I feel like that sounds unnecessarily harsh - it isn't for anyone but I like it. The location is as good as it gets (in my view) and reasonably priced, I also like the simplicity of it all going through the uni as well as them providing porters and cleaners which you won't get in a house (but do on-campus).Is there anything in particular you want to ask about it?

Thank you for your reply! I also would like to know:

Are your flatmates social? I ask because for my first year I voluntarily avoided making friendships as I was in a bad place.

Also, how hygienic are the people when it comes to stories? I struggle with using the toilet in my own ensuite, let alone a shared bathroom.

Have you made any friends during your stay? I'm guessing if there is a shared kitchen and a common room some friendships are bound to happen.

Thanks.
