Broadgate Park AMAWatch
Hi all. I'm Bren, Senior Accommodation Officer at Broadgate Park. We are one of the University of Nottingham partner sites for Self-Catered Accommodation and for the next couple of hours I'm here to answer any questions you have (or at least try to). Ask me anything...
Hi do you tend to put first years who are staying in studios next to/nearby each other as it can be hard for us to socialise living in studios. Thanks
Where this happens we try to get a balance of both so everyone has at least one thing in common with others on the corridor.
- We accept applications from any University of Nottingham student, in any year of study
- Our Ensuite Bedroom is by far our most popular room type and fills incredibly quickly every year
- Broadgate Park is made up of five parts (Albion House, Cloister House, Turnpike Lane, Upper Court and Lower Court)
what'll happen with regards to accommodation if the university decides that either the first term or the whole year will need to be entirely online & keeps campus closed - or even if some courses are moved online & campus is open for some people but not all? will we be required to keep paying for rooms we're unable to use?
During conversations with the University, it has been indicated that there will not be a delay. However, we must stress that as the National situation changes so could the plans for September. Once we have anything concrete, we will share it with all applicants to Broadgate Park as I'm sure the University will too.
Hi, I am a postgrad student who has applied for a studio room through the Uni's accommodation portal since all the ensuite rooms were already booked. I would like to know if there's any way for the students to be on a waiting list for a particular room. It would be great If i could get notified about the availability of the same so that I could apply for a room change accordingly. Thank you.
We don't hold waiting lists for rooms that have already filled. This is because we factor in a number of expected deferrals/failed entry and offer additional rooms based on this number. When a room type disappears from the application form it's because we have hit this number already and don't expect anything more to become available.
Obviously it's not a perfect system so we can get additional rooms back after A level results are released but these would be from our pool of Undergraduate rooms so would not be available to Postgraduates.
Do visitors have to pay to park onsite, for example if I was hosting an overnight guest?
Visitors do need to be checked in at Reception and can park on the Lower Court area of Broadgate Park with an overnight permit. There is currently no charge for this.
I've been staying at BGP this year and have seen an option on the app to "book a room." Is this booking a slot to return and empty our rooms?
Not quite sure how you managed to get access to that, maybe you were on the app while we've been testing.
Final fact for the day. Did you know Broadgate Park has a 24 hour Reception that is open all year round. If you're one of our residents, you can always find a helping hand there or even stop by for a smile and a chat.
