I was understandably worried when I got assigned Point Exe as accommodation. All reviews I saw were awful, it was next to a train station, and it was all the way down by St David's train station. In truth, I couldn't have asked for a better accommodation. The people I was put with were amazing - so much so that I live with most of them now, in second year - the accommodation was reasonably cheap for a full en-suite shower, and it seemed to be that EVERYONE who lived at Point Exe was lovely and up for a laugh! The walk is made much better by the shuttle bus that runs to and from St David's station every morning and evening, and the train station itself is a massive convenience at best, and an interesting sight at worst. Trust me, you'll be a train-spotted by the end of the year! Overall, Point Exe is a lovely place to live. The people are great (including the staff), the accommodation is lush, the shuttle bus is a major convenience (you don't even have to walk up forum hill!), and you're reasonably close to town (but good luck with Peep Lane...).
