    I applied to Blackfiars for accommodation today and got an ensuite room. Is anyone else here applied or planning to apply to Blackfriars for Accommodation? I went and had a look round it and Buchanan View and I was impressed with both of them but more so Blackfriars.

    So anyone here going there?

    Yeah i'm the same. When do you reckon everyone will move in? I think we can move in any time after the 1st but I dont want to go too early that il be the only one there, or too late that everyone will already have gotten to know each other.

    I only live 25 miles away so I might stay there for a few days then come back for a few days etc.

    Ive got a basic ensuite on the ground floor - left the booking too late and it was the only basic ensuite left in a room with a 1st year, you?

    Yeah you are in the exact same situation as me! I have a job at home so I might just go home at weekends to do that and see if I can find anything over there so I can bring in some extra money! Im the same with the classic ensuite but im on the second floor, thank god I just applied before the results came out or I probably wouldnt have got a room I would have liked. The premium ensuites are majorly overpriced in my opinion lol.

    Yeah they definately are, £20 extra for a little extra floor space just isnt worth it. Ive only got one flatmate so far though which worries me, hopefully more will move in.

    Yeah there will be. I have 4 so far but 2 of them are 3rd years and 1 is a 1st year. There is only one boy so far so i feel quite sorry for him haha :P . Just wait a few days till everyone gets their clearing spaces and everything then your flat will fill up
