    Me and my friend are off to Newcastle to have a look tomorrow!

    If everything goes well we should be booking soon. We have to go in a three bed apartment with somebody else as it stands, a little worried that we'll get somebody bad.

    Have you been there? What did you think?

    Also, JamieEclipse, you could just go into a 5/6/7 bed flat with your friend and people you don't know? That might be better!

    Too late, booked! Apparently we're with a second year who asked for quiet people, should be fine! We're in a top floor apartment too, the stairs could prove to be a pain but hey, better views and less noise.

    I'm at Newcastle uni doing Computer Science btw, might see you during Fresher's week! :yy:

    You'll be fine and I'm sure your neighbours will be nice too! You never know, it might be me! How soon after you've booked do you find out which flat you're in etc? Roll on Freshers

    Not sure, we just found out because we asked, we haven't seen the exact flat we're getting but we saw the floorplan and it's pretty much the same as the display flat. We know it's top floor but not which block. :\

    If you're a takeaway+movie or drinks+multiplayer kind of guy (/girl?) you're totally invited round!

    Think I'll email asking in a week or so then, they must be sick of me bombarding them with questions! I want one of the massive rooms but the smaller ones would do the job just as well I suppose
    Well I'll probably be taking you up on that offer! Where are you from anyway?

    Don't know which flat yet, might try to find out!

    Me and my friend are both from Carlisle. I'm originally from Leadgate (County Durham) and my friend's originally from Brighton. (uhh... down.)

    Everybody else?

    Woo, now you don't have to feel left out!

    Although I don't know if Mcgrat's vague memory is correct...

    I'm just pretty chuffed that we're on the top floor. No heavy-footed upstairs neighbours for us. Just attic monsters. I shall befriend them.

    Yup I can't wait to get there and meet people. I'm also looking forward to seeing what my room will look like with all my stuff in it, seeing what my course is like and uhh... going shopping?

    That's pretty sad but I've never had to buy all of my own food before, new frontier! And there's that one awesome Peep Show episode about it. Definitely up for night time shopping then nightclub and bowling.

    Also sorry but I don't have Facebook. I'd join the group if I did though. :yy:
