    Another question - Do many people take cars with them, or is it not allowed?
    To be honest, with the difficulty of getting a parking permit on campus, and the fact that the bus system is so good from the university, I dont see the point. Seriously, you never have to wait more than five minutes for a bus into town, and usually one is always just about to go.

    No need for a car. The only reason that i can see for it is convenience/laziness.

    I dunno, that sounds like a damn good reason . . .

    Well, I'd have only really used it to get home at the end of term (and just because I resent paying the insurance and getting no use out of it), but I guess the odd train journey won't kill me :rolleyes:

    I was just looking at the term dates. Why do terms start on Friday? Is this when you're expected to come back, rather than when classes start?

    It's a complete mystery why terms start on Fridays, except that it means you can return on the Friday and get into your room I suppose.
    Teaching doesn't start til the following Monday. Most people come back on the Saturday or Sunday after term starts.

    Thanks.

    I was trying to work out what weeks I'd be able to work full-time. Thought I'd made an arse of the calendar when I saw all the terms starting on Fridays, but, no, it's just Lancaster being peculiar.

    The reason that term starts on a fri is when all the accommodation used to be 30 week lets (or sumat like that) and the friday was the day people could collect their keys.

    Bit of a random question but was just wondering what colleges are like with you receiving parcels/packets on a regular basis, would they get annoyed with you?

    No, they don't get annoyed. If they do, who cares, that's their job! Parcels are delivered to your porter's lodge every day. They sign for them if they are recorded delivery. Then they put up a list to say who has parcels to collect. And you have to prove your ID to get it from them.
    Sometimes it can be a bit difficult to catch them in the lodge. I once had to wait 4 days to collect a package.

    Depends where you are - reception varies across campus. I'm in SW and get all the terrestrial channels, but Channel 4 is poor. Flatmates with Freeview boxes don't seem to have too much diffculty.

    If you make really good friends with the porter they might even ring you when your packages come in

    I was on SW in first year and had to get a cable thing from argos to get all the channels properly that plugged into the wall but it was only 2 quid or something!

    Im in a house in town now (for second year) and the reception is pretty bad, but thats probably cos our landlady wont fix the aerial

    Thank god for BBC Iplayer!! lol!

    Out of interest, are there any plans to expand the gym? I was shocked at how small it was when I visited, seems a touch too pricy for the membership.
