Hey every1! This is my first post, cant believe i just found this website, its so helpfull! Basically I forgot to send off my application for accomodation letter, i did it after i got my results, so was only 2 months late, haha. N e way they suggested i tried Brunel. I immediately **** myself, as Brunel uni was my insurance choice and i thought they meant actually goin to the uni cos RHUL had no halls left! N e way everything got sorted and im stayin in Marshall Hall at Runnymede Campus. Btw was any1 else majorly confused as there is a Runnymede hall on RHUL's actual campus!
N e way i'll get to the point. I know absolutely no1 goin to RHUL and it would be really cool to get into contact with a couple of people before i leave so i got sum1 to give a bell once i arrive and can go for a drink with and meet some other peeps! So if there are any other Royal Holloway students staying at Brunels Runnymede reply to this post!
BTW does any have any info on Marshall Hall and what it is actually like?
PS has any1 recieved info from RHUL about events during freshers week and other stuff cos i havnt got much correspondance from em for a bit!
Yep, I'm going to be staying on the Runnymede Campus in Williams hall. I've done a bit of research on the place and have found some photo's of outside the halls. The only inside photos I've found are for President hall, and even then they don't show the rooms.
I've added you to MSN.
Edit: It would be helpful if I posted the image links, heh.
I am also staying at Brunel's Runnymede. I am in Reed Hall (room 105). I haven't received anything from either RHUL or Brunel. I have written so many e-mails to both of them, it just seems to be constant problems (didnt have accommodation, couldnt pay deposit, can't set up direct debit because it won't accept my student ID number, haven't received any info about freshers' week). I am just relieved to see that I am not the only one.
I think there are about 350 RHUL students staying at Brunel.
Cheers for all the replies guys! I already got in contact wit a guy called alex who is stayin at runnymede, real nice guy aswell! Is any1 staying in Marshall halls, it looks like im the only person! I spoke to a secind year RHUL student and she said Runnymede campus ppl tend to stick together! Did n e 1 else find it confusing that there is a hall on the RHUL campus called Runnymede Hall? Wierd!
