you're welcome! glad i could help :smile:
Thankyou so much!! Really appreciate the time and effort you put into this post and you've helped narrow things down a bit. We went to view some accommodation on the accommodation open day yesterday but couldn't get to all of them. We didn't get to see MB but that seems exploring further. Really liked Cityside, Charles Morris ( self/catered block) and White Rose.
