    I think from newcastle it's 2 and a half hours - which is fantastic considering i was contemplating taking the 5 hour coach before i found out :laugh:Hmmm, i've already told my mam i'll be glad to be shot of her, and she feels the same, so probably just christmas and easter, and maybe one or two visits to my friends :') How about you?
    Yeah it's normally about that to Leeds :') well it's my brothers 21st birthday end of October so back for that, probably go back once or twice a term, then holidays but I think my parents'll come fetch me then :') aww ill miss my family, and it'll be weird for my parents since I'm the youngest child, they'll have an empty nest! :')

    Did your college get in touch with you about your membership? I haven't heard back from mine yet.

    You only live there for a few months so it might not be too bad and refurbished rooms look really nice. Sorry its a bit late but at least you will be prepared if you get it, I wonder how many people will be in for a shock on move in day?
    Good luck anyway

    Honestly, if you hadnt told me i'd probably be one of them haha! I've calculated and ill have about £97 per week for living if i get the room, so thats definently making the few months in a basic room sound more worth it I really like the desks in the refurbished rooms too! Thankyou for your help

    http://online-payments.lancaster-uni...6&prodvarid=46

    Thats the link to pay college membership

    Buy a purple card from here: http://card.lusu.co.uk/

    Should be up n running soon the purple card allows you to join societies.

    Make sure that when you arrive you get a laundrette card (£5) and top it up for the week, ill prolly put like about £10-£20. A wash is £1.70 a dry is £1

    Get your library card (look in your welcome pack for times).

    Bring all your documents such as passport, provisional/drivers licence, print off accommodation deposit receipt/invoice and college membership, bring your student finance England forms bring a copy of ur unconditional letter, bring ur original certificates (btec/alevels).

    I'll be purchasing a official lancaster uni hoodie when i arrive i cant think of anything else right now though lmao.

    Pre-registration? Do you mean college membership? I haven't heard anything from mine either.

    I think I read somewhere pre-registration isn't until the 16th September.

    Hearing back from your college could take up until mid-September as well.

    Oooohhhh, where abouts?
    Not too far from Crewe!

    (Original post by JonNgog)
    Ha ha I was being a little pedantic I guess, but by north west most people mean Newcastle and the surrounding areas. Sometimes it's easy to forget how far north Newcastle is of Yorkshire. Technically Yorkshire is virtually the midlands!

    I'm originally from Hull, that's pretty East Yorkshire!
