(picture of the city campus, only some of it as it wouldn’t fit in the frame!)
So feedback from Newport yesterday;
Had a really good day up there showing around my mum and boyfriend for the first time and me and my dad for the second.
I found out a lot more information about the university and about the accommodation more so.
There are two places that I could stay if i get a Merit, Opal accommodation about a 5 minute walk away from the city campus (the main campus were I could be based) and the Caerleon campus accommodation. With the Opal accommodation its new big bright all en-suit with a choice of a double bed as well with some of the rooms. Really nice rooms plenty of room shared kitchen and in a really secure building. The only problem is that its away from the student life of the Caerleon campus which has the SU, gym, bar, games room and main things are. Opal does have a area for pool playstation and chilling out but is away from all this, yes only a 10-15min bus journey away I still feel asthough id be away from it all?
But that all seams like, Well durr go to the Caerloen campus then?! But then theres a problem there to! Although yes the rooms are nice, there a bit old and dated and are in need of some refurbishment. There smaller than the Opal ones with not as nice facitlties and more flat like but for a one year stay they would do.
With me I’m a really environmental based worker! And to me the Caerleon accommodation just seams a bit small enclosed and dark for someone who like a lot of light space and openness, but then I want to be were all the student life is!
AHH decisions any help?!
