    No bathmats, but you do get a little shelf thing, no soap dish, and there is a loo roll holder as such, but when the college roll runs out 3 weeks into the term its kinda redundant, you can't refill it! I just put the role on top of it!

    Oh yeah, we do get toilet brushes. Oh by the way, this is Reid I'm talking about, not sure about other halls.

    Blimey...it's only May!! Sill another 4 months to go yet. I'd say wait until you get your results, you never know what might happen.

    Well I don't really have much choice. Its a long drive to our nearest shopping centre and my mum's work is heavist in the summer so I need to make use of her freetime while she has it.

    One way or another I'll need it eventually.

    In Kingswood 2 there are various little shelf-y bits scattered around, some things attached to the sink which I think are supposed to be soap dishes, loo roll holder is provided and attached to the wall (and is perfectly normal, you can put new loo rolls on it) and there is a loo brush, but you may still wish to bring your own, or buy some very strong bleach.

    Bath mats aren't provided though, and to be honest there isn't anywhere to put one. The bathrooms are tiny and when you have a shower the floor gets soaked.

    This may be an odd question but are the shower heads detachable or are they fixed to the wall?

    I think they mean what hall. In Wedderburn (and I assume the other new halls) and Runnymede they were fixed to the wall. I seem to remember seeing fixed ones in Founders too.

    I'm assuming by the clues (process of elimination and the fact you implied it's not en-suite) that you're in Reid.
