I've applied for bristol in 2008 and I've been up twice, but not seen any accommodation at all. So far I like it but the housing is the big sticking point, I've heard bad things fom some about it but don't know what to think with no real experience.
I'll be looking at the lower end price-wise, not an en-suite but possibly with a basin in the room at a push. Is anyone staying/has stayed in this kind before and what is it like, generally speaking? In particular the facilities and commute to the uni, how much of a pain is being quite a way away?
I tried to see some accommodaton what I came down for interview but none was avaliable, what's the best way of arranging to see inside a room privately (do I go through the uni, department, or hall?)
