Narrowed accomodation down to cartmel,bowland and lonsdale i am wondering which one is the most friendly outgoing/partying college but i heard lonsdale and bowland were chavy areas is this true? Also how far is lonsdale from the physics building by walking? Are there any tennis courts on campus if so where?
Should i go for ensuite or shared, is shared for single sex or unisex, is the shared ever really that busy and is it not that much of a big deal?
That's a point... when do we apply for accommodation, haven't really thought about it :s
I've got two mates at Lancaster, one at Bowland, the other at Lonsdale. Speaking for just those two, I found Lonsdale far more sociable and they seemed to have great parties fairly occasionally as well!
Lonsdale is about 94327597348 miles from the physics building. Approximately. :P Ermm they're opposite sides of campus really so about 15 mins walk I'd say.
There's tennis courts just as you come in/out of campus from the main road.
You can put a preference for single sex for your accomodation (whether en-suite or shared) but I don't know if you're guarenteed it or not...
I'm not in ever or do I Physics (so basically discount my opinion). Lonsdale is yonks away from everything though as well as Cartmel and Bowland seems...gash. I'd say apply to Furness or County (the latter cos I am there) but Furness has the best bar on campus. But yeah, Bowland is in the middle of everything but seems gash, the others are a bit of a trek.
also for the accomo i stated what are the laundry facilities like around that area
I think there's a laundrette in cartmel, lonsdale might share that one, not sure
there's one in county which I think bowland shares
Never used either of those laundrettes though so I don't know how reliable they are or anything....
Bowland doesn't have a laundrette, it shares with County. They're always breaking down, and considering the number of people needing to use them ,there aren't nearly enough. Don't know about the others though.
My advice would be to decide what accommodation what want... for example, if you want standard then pick Bowland! The advantage of en-suite is you have your own bathroom... you do have to clean it though which some people don't like. Standard is much cheaper. I think you only have shared accommodation in County and as far as I know, people normally don't like it...
I'm coming to Lancaster Uni in Oct yippee! I know that i could never share a bathroom with 5-8 people eek. I think Fydle looks like a cool college but only just checking colleges out! A lot of the colleges seem into sports, any of them that aren't that into sports??
Thanks in advance 4 you replies!
Bowland's nice and in the middele, and main is smack bang next to the physics building! I've never had a problem with being crowded in shared accommodation.... I've only ever once seen all the showers filled. Okay,t he kitchen in main got a bit crowded sometimes, but I think that that was pretty unusual... nine of the ten of us were pretty decent cooks, so cooked proper meals. haven't had that problem at all this year, despite sharing wiht almost twice as many people.
Lonsdale has a nice bar, but it is out of the way, and you will get wet an awful lot. Anyone living on south west campus gets wet an awful lot.
Laundrettes... bowland main is pretty much between county south and Furness, and Ash house and Annexe are between county south and county main laundrettes, so its not like theres any further to go than anyone else. County south is a bit grotty- the landrette, not the building. COunty main is all shiney and new though.
Thanks to all those that replied! I've been looking some more at county because it's close to the law school and i'm gonna be doing law in september!
Thanks again dudes!!!! :-)
What is the John Creed accommodation like? The reason I like that is its County but has en-suite and the kitchen is 4-7 people.
