A Look into University Accommodation

Hello Everyone!

Hope you are all doing well. This week i am going to look into the accommodation options at our beautiful university campus here. As i mentioned in my last blog, I live in Cathedral Court at the stag hill campus which is almost just 2 minutes away from the library. The university accommodation is divided into 6 different bands ranging from Band A to Band F. I live in a Band C accommodation where i am living in flat with 6 other people of different nationalities. Its a wonderful experience to share and learn about different people and it helps to grow us a lot.

HALF A YEAR GONE!

The first term came to an end and it was the best time of the year, the holiday season! As the Christmas break started, like everyone, I was eager to visit home. Most of my friends had already left; some went home while others went for vacation. I had made my plans to travel after a week to experience the holidays here. Going back home and meeting my parents after 3 months was amazing but the thought of final exams right after reopening of school kept bugging me. I had prepared a strict schedule allocating sufficient time to study but also be able to enjoy at the same time. That never happened! I couldn’t actually study as much as I had planned – but it was worth it!

Hello Surrey’s blog readers! Hope you’re all keeping warm in this cold. I’m having a great time here at Surrey, trying my best to negotiate with this weather which I am told will get even colder. I wanted to share my thoughts on winter, and rain in specific, and how it has made me more organized.
