Applying for Vanbrugh College but not sure to do catered Band 2 or choose Band 3 (to get better room) and get the Meals In Advance Deal. Just worried in case got self catered block then I might be the only one going to the dining hall and everyone else in block cooking in our kitchen? Any thoughts?

Hi there,

Sorry for the delay in replying. Going to meals together is a great way to get to know the people you're living with, so it may be an easier (and perhaps cheaper) choice to go for the catered room option.

However, if you would rather go for the Meals in Advance Deal, you'll still have plenty of opportunities to socialise during meal times and other times. All of our catering outlets offer the choice to take your food away to eat elsewhere or at a different time, so you could perhaps make use of this by taking your MAD meal back to your kitchen if you want to socialise within your flat? You'll also be able to meet people within your college outside of the block you're in, including people who are also receiving catered meals who you can eat with at meal times.

You should choose whichever option will suit you best and remember that you'll have plenty of opportunities to make friends and socialise.

Hope this helps!

Steph

Hi. What course are you applying for ? I have firmed York For IR and Politics and my favourite accommodation so far is Langwith Colleges on Hes East however, it is quite far away from the library and market square so am not sure how i feel about going back and forth all the time.
Do you want catered because you cant be bothered to cook ?
You will have to choose several different accommodations anyways because they may not be able to give your first choice. If you want put both in and see which one the university gives you. I spoke to the accommodation team and they said that 79% f freshers last year got one of their 3 top choices.
I hope I was helpful.
