Is it true that henry price bathroom is shared by two people with two doors from their rooms and no locks?
Yeah I saw it last year on an open day...
It's a really nice building, that's the only real issue with it I guess. There are some en-suite rooms but if you're sharing, you just gotta hope you're not sharing the bathroom with a... dislikeable person. :P

Even if it's someone likeable...I don't want to be walked in by someone while i'm showering or sitting on the toilet...

You do want to live the building all by yourself? :lol:

It's going to take a lot to make me fall out of love with Clarence Dock :love:

Spoiler:

Hopefully it'll live of to my expectation on the open day

Yes I am taking a coach, taking a train would cost a fortune. Oh goodness, I'm not looking forward to the long trip :/

A 9 hour journey for a 3 1/2 hour open day... I kind of regret wanting to go to this open day :/

ooh that's quite expensive. I got a return for £8 on megabus when i went. I got a ticket for £16 but had to pay for my broke ass sibling and friend so I'm down £48 :hmmm: i think a day pass is like £3 or so. :zomg: how far do you live from the station? I'm sure I'd make it to Leeds by 7 if i got up at 5

Aww sucks a little. You could go cinema or somewhere for a while? :dontknow:

my main job is in a care home near mine (luckily) only doing 6hours (thankfully)

That's what I get for booking last minute (I'm taking the national express coach)

From Victoria station? Um, just over an hour, I don't actually live in London, just very close by

My coach is due to leave for London at 16:45, so I can't stay long, I have to start making my way back to the coach station at 4

That's great at least you have a job, I really have nothing better to do, I mainly just revise the chemistry modules I plan to resit. My gap year is pretty lame atm.

Is your offer for Leeds unconditional?

i technically don't have one. I applied last Friday thru extra but Yea it'd be unconditional if i get one. They said I'd be okay on the phone :dontknow: yours?

I wonder if the plan is working...I'm telling people that it's heavily oversubscribed and that they probably won't get in

The food is very hit and miss. The pizza they do is okay, but some of the rice dishes they come up with are inedible to the point where (im really not a fussy eater at all) i couldnt finish it. Avoid the spinach risotto.

There are loads of other options though, plenty are nice, they have a noodle bar which is really good and a deli counter. If you come up for open day try it for lunch if you fancy, its a bit overpriced, but you get used to it eventually. The timing is silly i think its 8:00-11:00 then 14:00-18:30. As i said, no lunch, and dinner is too early for my liking.

If you really want self catered, i think Henry Price is self catered and its really close too. I dont know much about the other halls but you've got lyddon and dobree and whetton on campus too. If you dont mind private halls, i think Concept Place do a good deal and ive heard some good things about them.

Dont get me wrong, Storm Jameson is bloody fantastic and we're the envy of everyone in terms of facilities, but there are a few annoying nags, and once you tell people how much you're paying a year they're pretty relieved their accom is 2-2.5k less p.a.

If price isnt an issue, id say go for it, as you dont have to go for refectory meals every day, and you dont even get fed 3 meals on a weekend which gives you room to cook as a flat. We've got a really good community atmosphere going on here, which i absolutely love, i dont think id have ever made such good friends if i was in a different place. If you're down anytime and want a quick tour around a room if they dont let you in one, just PM me and id be glad to give you a quick tour of the place, but im quite busy so make sure you get me in advance :P
Thanks once again! I don't actually live in the UK so i won't really be able to come back to leeds! But if you wouldn't mind i would really appreciate a photo of the room! (I came in the summer so i know how perfect the rest of the campus is :P)
