                    Disgraceful slacking!!!!!! And he didn't even come speak to me last week when I was there!

                    Come to think of it - where were you!

                            Hello people, I'm starting in January on the deck side. Im 22, have done Uni halls before and think that it'll work out cheaper in a house somewhere near the college. Could use some pointers on the merits/downsides of staying off campus before making a decision

                              Firstly you need to confirm with your company / college if they will permit you to stay off campus in phase 1...

                              Aside from that - like you I was 21 when I started, having already completed a university degree. I would recommend you stay in the halls for phase 1 - it's only 3 months, meals (which are acceptable) are included and more importantly you will be staying with other people from your company (normally). Ok you have to share a room but they're big enough that it's not really a problem and if your not capable of sharing a room for a few months at college I'd say you'll struggle at sea when your stuck with the same people for months.

                              Obvious other advantages; you can go for a nap between lectures, the library is 30 second walk from your room, there's a bar & costa on campus and 3 other pubs within a short walk. You will meet the people on your course.

                              Being from Scotland I couldn't really go home at the weekend - while several people did go home at the weekend - mainly the younger ones - I think they really missed out, those of us that stayed at the weekends had a great time... I'll compare this to my time at uni were I commuted - I can honestly say that I was more sad to leave warsash at end of phase 1 than I've ever been before. Phase 3 I would suggest living with a bunch of fellow cadets either in Southampton or in a house nearby... and phase 5 majority still appear to want to stay on campus - I would recommend it - purely because your near the library for studying!
