Just to clarify, the Sutton Bonington campus is about 12 miles ish from Nottingham, (address is actually Loughborough!) Preference is given to people with courses based here, I think there are a few other people, but not many. There probably isn't much point applying for accom here unless you are here for most of your lectures, there are buses to UP, but they aren't very regular (about 1 hour at best) and worse at weekends. Having said all that, SB is a lovely campus, especially now its better weather. But you are probably better at UP is your course is there.
