    Just wanted to see if there is any undergrads moving into kingfisher hall this year. I didn't get the accommodation that I wanted and it was too expensive. So any freshers moving in?
    Also, if you have lived there before how is it like and are the rooms nice

    I've visited Kingfisher Hall a few times. It's a collection of several buildings, which are quite different. Some of the rooms are nicer than others. The people I know who lived there found it ok, and it's generally quieter than the main halls of residence. From my visits I got the impression that quite a few international students stay there, as well as some mature students who have moved to Loughborough from elsewhere. Some people from my course stayed there too who weren't mature students, so it's quite the mix. It's about the same distance from the Union as the Holt, and if you want to affiliate with a Hall for Freshers the closest ones would be the Holt (although I think this is no longer owned by the Uni), Towers and Butler Court.

    Oh, I have question. Are they a lot of first and second year students there? I do want to affiliate with Halls for fresher but how do I do that. I hope I'm not the only first year student there. If I knew about holt I would have booked a room there instead. Oh wells. What course do you do?

    You won't be the only fresher there, but I don't think there are lots - I think there are more 2nd years than Freshers in Kingfisher. You affiliate by buying a hall affiliation through www.lsu.co.uk and searching for the hall page. Check the descriptions first as I'm on my phone and doing this from memory, but I think it's called something like freshers affiliation or external fresher affiliation.

    Don't worry about being left out - Keep your eyes and ears open and ask people what's going on although I'm arguably a little biased I'd highly recommend joining societies to meet new people and to get involved in fun events (check the lsu societies thread).

    And as for your last question, I'm a physicist.

    Edit: sorry for abrupt ending, I was on a train that was about to go underground I'm a physicist, but I know a lot of people from other courses through societies and campus events. The LSU Societies Thread can be found here. Feel free to ask more questions as you think of them!
