    Every room has a socket where you can plug your TV in for freeview. I fully recommend bringing a TV, it was great socially and to just turn on and relax after lectures. This is the cable I bought to connect my TV into the wall socket - http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B...ef=oss_product

    Are we talking for the internet? AFAIK, they come as standard in all halls.

    I'm staying in Bill Mo and was wondering if I need to take an iron and an ironing board?
    I noticed that it wasn't mentioned on the Bill Mo 'What to Bring' list so I presume I don't.

    hi, does anyone know whether it's worth bringing an iron with you (first year, Royce accommodation)?
    Bring an iron, they're not provided in Royce (or at least, they weren't in our flat)
