    Forgot to ask, does anyone know what stuff Peverell Halls have in them already? I've as good as got everything now, it's just I've not bothered with toasters and that until I know what I need/don't need in that aspect...
    You could see what everyone else brings in Freshers Week, and if you need anything Morrisons is a walk away and Asda is a bus ride to West Bridgford

    If I remember correctly there are toasters already in Peverell.

    Nope, got absolutely nothing from Trent since results day. I was expecting Trent to send me something with regards to the uni at least.

    They do indeed. The SU president was writing his little welcome note the other day, and the sports club brochure has been printed, so you'll be all getting your welcome packs sometime in the near future

    haha yeah I actually thought it wasnt a bad price, and I dont have a bike myself at the moment. I dont need one for the first year though but I might consider it for the second year if I move off campus

    Hi,
    I'm going to Trent in September but not staying in the halls, I live like 30 mins away. I'm worried that at freshers I won't meet anyone and I don't want to walk into the freshers parties on my own as i still want to get involved with all of it! Any advise?

    Go out on the first freshers night, talk to some people and make friends, get their phone number, next day text/ring them asking what they're doing tonight and if they would meet with you before they go, problem solved

    another tip make the effort to join in a society or sports club, and don't leave campus straight after lectures. stay and hang around with people and see if they want to go for a drink or something, just really make the effort to mix with people. also turn up to the local stduents meeting point at spanky van dykes on goldsmith street in freshers, fresher reps will be here and able to help you to get to events so you get the chance there to mix with people in similar situation to yourself before all heading off together to the events organised.
