Uni of Nottingham Accommodation

Hi, I’m hopefully going to be going to Uni of Nottingham this September to do PPE, which means my lectures will be based on the University Park campus, but I’m finding accommodation closer to the Jubilee campus much more to my liking. I know there are buses I can take to get to and from each campus, but is there a big disadvantage to living on the campus you’re not taking lectures on?

ATM I’m thinking of Riverside Point or Southwell Hall on Jubilee, and Broadgate Park on University Park.
Are you wanting to apply for shared bathroom or ensuite? Also the buses between UP and jubilee are not as frequent as the uni says they are and I know at least two people who regret staying on jubilee when all their lectures are on UP

definitely en-suite, that was my only condition for accommodation. i also have family in east nottingham which is one of the main reasons why i chose jubilee campus (aside from the fact its WAY cheaper) as it would be a lot easier to get to then and/or the city centre when we go out. how frequent are the buses usually, if you know?

During the day they're supposed to be every 15 minutes but often aren't cause they're usually late and at busy times they get full when they do eventually show up so then you have to wait ages for the next one. I always advise to live on/near the campus you'll be studying on cause the buses really aren't as reliable as the uni says

do a lot of people choose jubilee over university park, even if they live on university park? from what i’ve seen the prices of jubilee accommodation are soo much cheaper, i wouldn’t mind waiting an extra 15 minutes or so than usual for a bus if it’s saving me that much money, and the walk (on the uon website) doesn’t seem that long either. would you say this is the only disadvantage?

It's not very common but there are some who do that, though I've met some that regretted it later because of the inconvenience of the buses. You could walk if you wanted but what if it's heavily raining, or freezing cold, or pitch dark because it's late at night? Do you still want to walk it then?

The halls on/near jubilee are said to be nicer though so there's that. The choice is yours but if you do come to regret it later don't say I didn't warn you

what do you take if you don’t mind me asking? do you know anyone who takes ppe or any of them separately and what they think of it? i did go to an open day last year but it would be great to hear from current students
