You do realise being in catered doesn't mean you have to eat there right? I'm pretty sure i heard Leazes has some cooking facilities you can use to make your own food.(Original post by Lengthwise)
Received my offer today. Castle Leazes, Catered. I'm not happy at all, because for reasons that I don't particularly want to go into, I simply won't be able to live in catered accommodation. It sucks, I was so excited to go to Newcastle University. The course is absolutely perfect for me, and now since receiving the e-mail saying that I have been offered catered accommodation, I have actually considered withdrawing from the university.
So yeah, has anyone got any advice? Will I be able to swap with rooms with somebody, or am I just screwed?
Though if it's the cost which is stopping you, i'm not sure what you can do other than ringing the uni and explaining.
Or does it play no part?
