    I WAS TOLD NOT TO BUY KITCHEN APPLIANCES COS LIKE THE OTHER TENANTS WOULD DO THE SAME AND YOU'LL END UP HAVING LIKE 5 KETTLES

    I was told to just wait until you get there and then buy it all together, that's what I'm doing

    Haha I always break mugs, so I'm going to stock up

    On an unrelated note, I'm worried I'll eat all my food just because it's there to eat

    I've saved all my nandos loyalty cards so if all else fails, I can live off a diet of free chicken?
    I eat because there's nothing better to do, I'm going to have to learn not to :P
    Is anyone else likely to be going out a lot?

    Gonna definitely keep some extra money saved up for freshers week. Also guys, I just came off the phone Apt Student Living, and basically, you can bring in a mini fridge and a mini fridge only. You cannot bring in anything that is considered to be bigger than one of them unfortunately, otherwise if you do, they will confiscate it off you. :mad:
    Woo that's cool! I'm not gonna bring one but I want a kettle in my room so Ivan have a cup of tea/coffee in the morning do you think they'll allow that, you're probably thinking why don't you just go the kitchen well ill have my own kettle and stuff so wanna keep it to myself :P XD

    Umm, I'll imagine that they probably wont want you to have a kettle in your room. They would probably just say 'you have a kettle provided in your kitchen yada yada'. Still, you could always just sneak one in , I can't imagine them wanting to search your room - just be subtle about it.
    I can't be subtle .. I'm too honest haha if they search ill take it out to the kitchen lol! And I know what you mean but oh well hahha XD

    Haha same, I can just see me getting a load of food and just eating it all cos I'm bored, or when I'm studying, then not having any money for any more! I will probs be joining you at nandos
    I'll be going out as often as I can afford (and probably even when I can't, like I do now!). Soon as I get in through the door I'm gonna be all, right folks. Leicester Square who's on it?!?

    Argh.. I'm guessing they will consider a beer fridge too big. Hmm.. ideas on how to sneak that up the stairs? I'm definitely having that on the sly in my room, once it's in there they'll never know!!
