I already applied for living on campus. They have already given out the rooms to people. In dec-jan there may be a few spots spare for people who don't get into uni, but other then that, there will be no room left on campus. You had to apply around april. That is when 2012 applications opened.

but the applications say they are still open? so I should be pretty safe if I do it now hopefully.

they leave them open because they give out positions all through the year because people leave. I have already paid my deposit of $600 (which you get back if you don't get in) and signed the contract and everything. You might have more luck at Ascrott House. Its a bit more expensive but meals are included. Good luck, I really hope you get it. Where are you coming from?

Thanks! :) I guess your all set then, which residence are you living on campus? Yeah chose Arscott house because I know somebody who will be living there anyway haha, Im from Sydney so hopefully they will still have enough space on campus because the guy I know got his place already confirmed depending if he gets into to UC or not. Which course are you planning on doing there? Where abouts are you coming from?

After living on campus for all of this year, I hated it!

I guess it depends on what your after. I came to university to study and do well but most people on campus don't care. So there is parties all the time, loud music, people yelling. It fun at the start, trust me, but after awhile it gets annoying when its 24/7.

Also, it would depend on who you share with. I was put with really bad people who would smash glass everywhere, smash on my door at 3am, break things, steal other peoples stuff, things like that.

I would personally not recommended it if your going there is work. Plus there is 1500 people on campus, 450 parking spots (you will NEVER find a park EVER). They are introducing a $15 a week parking fee so it will be very competitive to even get a parking spot.

Like you said I guess it does depend with who you live with, to be honest I'm actually enjoying it? Haha, but moving out next year too new apartments which seems ironic haha, with 5 other people who seemed more study focused and quiter I guess,

What are yu doing next year? Staying/moving?
