    A question: Do the rooms at Christ's have clocks on the walls or do we have to get our own....? (I know, it's the small details that really bug me )

    No clocks. You'll have to bring your own.

    (Do yourself a favour and don't put the clock on a shelf above your bed - from past experience, if it falls on your head, you get concussion)

    Heya St John's folks! Everyone else get the accommodation email today? I bet a million ££ I'll be drawn last in the ballot

    Hope everyone's having a great summer xo
    Hi! I have received it. When are we supposed to get our slot times and login details? I read the 27th August but I haven't received them...
    I am sure I will be one of the last ones in the ballot too

    That's sound advice, I'll try and remember it...

    It's Cantabrigians :p: or Cantabs for short. It's where the baseless slur used by the other place "dirty Tab" comes from.

    After reading this I was wondering what we actually call people living in Cambridge! I guessed Cambrodgians (which sounds very sleek, don't deny it) but apparently its a 'Cantabrigian'?

    Fair enough, I like this theory

    We're Cantabs for short as ukdragon said - I think it comes from the Latin name for Cambridge (Cantabrigia or something similar)?

    Has anyone from Queens' heard anything about accommodation yet?
    I'm for queens' in october too and I've heard nothing apart from the letter confirming my place. I did ring a couple of weeks ago and they told me that we'd get a freshers pack at the end of august (although I'm pretty sure that's now and I still haven't got anything)

    Has anyone else not got parents yet either? I'm starting to become pretty concerned that I may be an orphan...

    It's okay, we're bound to get everything over the next two weeks (unless you're an international student in which case, stuff will either be left in your pigeon holes or take longer to get to you because of snail mail)

    I know that Christ's will be sending out our accommodation etc at the end of August (now) and we will be getting letters from our parents etc from the JCR in early September... so don't worry, I think we're all waiting

    I'm Queens' as well (), and I got a welcome pack a few days ago. It said we'd hear about accommodation / college parents by email 'soon'. Hope this helps!

    Going to wait for my registration pack to come through - to see what I most definitely need as well as what the rooms are like and kitchen facilities. Not sure tbh! Might ask my college parents

    What is Camtools and how do we get an account?
    CamTools is like an online network thing, where lecturers upload notes and stuff. There's a John's offer-holders group on there, and I think all Johnian freshers should have received log-on information (possibly just as a guest though). As Dandan said, everyone gets a proper account when they get to Cambridge

    Johnians - your college parents have been emailed your names and should be in touch soon If they don't contact you before you get up to Cambridge, don't worry, because there's a "Pudding with Parents" event within the first few days to meet them

    I resent this.
