    Depends really...do you want to be socialising with lots of 18 and 19 year old undergraduates (judging by your age)?

    there is no competition, if you want to meet people etc go for on campus. it's simply not comparable.

    yep. Campus is awesome. especially if you get a nice central accommodation. to OP id suggest campus either way because judging by your age and lack of knowledge of campus/off campus id imagine youre a post grad student (who hasnt been to Warwick before) so living on campus will make life much simpler for you.

    tbh Tocil imo is a better choice than Heronbank or Lakeside simply because its so much closer to central campus/gym/tesco etc. Although Claycroft is also a good choice. not too far away and the rooms there are quite nice.

    tbh Tocil imo is a better choice than Jack Martin because JM is full of spakkers who are among other things quite socially retarded. They don't go out much and tend to avoid human contact at all costs.
    I agree.

    lol i didnt actually read his quote, thanks for pointing it out :p: Jack Martin is awesome (although in my year JM4 seemed a bit ) and everyone who disses it are just jealous they didnt get to live there and are just bitter. point in hand, JM wasnt even mention in this thread until a bitter non JMer bought it up for no reason (especially considering the OP is MSc student and wouldnt get JM accommodation either way).

    which year were you there in? dunno just i knew quite a lot of fun people in all the other JMs and they always seemed to have something going on but either way, even if one JM is bad there are 3 others which are bound to be v.good so in the end its all okay :woo:

    Hey,

    thanks for the reply so far!

    Well right, I am a postgraduate student, haven't been to Warwick before. Starting there in September.

    Do you guys know, where most of the postgraduates are staying (on or off campus)? Tocil seems to be quite central, close to the students union. But it seems to be pretty old, and there's no common room in each flat. Finally it is pretty cheap in comparison to all other options.

    Think, that I wouldn't go for Lakeside or Heronbank as it's too far outside. Claycroft seems to be a good deal as well.

    So in case, I go for on campus, I am going either to Tocil or to Claycroft. Maybe you guys could give me some info which one is supposed to be better to get to know people, to party, etc...:-)

    Please consider, that I am a postgraduate....so meeting postgraduates is quite important.

    Thanks to all of you!

    I personally prefer being on campus. It's a big campus and it suited all my needs! Can't wait to be back on there.

    Some people prefer to be in Leamington to go out, but I don't like the long bus rides in each morning.

    Depends what you want. Most people choose campus when they can because it's easier to be on campus.
