an iron board and bin are provided. there is a light above the desk, the lightswitch is kinda hidden but it is there. no hangers though. Well theres a Wilkinsons on the main road near the bus stop in town.
Thanks, this helps me less worried about my starter pack

If there's no toaster just buy one and split it with your flat...

Like jack said, it's better to wait as then you can see what everyone else brings. If you do need to buy one you can use the grill in the mean time to make toast (of which there definitely is one).

Yes I think all the accommodation has them, though I'm not 100% for Orwell/Wolfson or Mary Chapman.

Hi everyone! I'm studying abroad at UEA for the Fall 2013 semester and want to know if I should bring bedding of my own, and if so what material would be best, or get one of the "starter packs" from this website?

http://www.uea.ac.uk/accommodation/l...s/starterpacks

THANK YOU! :-)
I'd probably go for the bedding pack to make it easier, but that's just me! Either way, the vast majority of people just have a fitted sheet on the mattress and a duvet with a duvet cover, plus pillow/s and pillow case/s. If it's still warm come September you might want only a sheet, not a duvet, but in that case you can just take the duvet out of the duvet cover and use the cover as a sheet.

What's the deal on internet? Is there no wifi? We're moving into 2014 after all. Is it possible to just buy a router and plug the ethernet cable into it or is it more complicated than that? As I'm taking multiple devices that use internet, gonna be a pain having to switch the cable between them.
Afraid not, there is free wifi on campus but not in the accomm, I think it's mainly due to issues with signal through all the walls, but not sure. Also I think they would worry that it would get overloaded with all the different devices. I'd perhaps make another post if you have no replies in a while since this is a busy period on this thread and there will be someone with experience of connecting other stuff on here who can help you out! But I'm pretty sure you can't just plug a router in, I think it's part of the agreement. I remember people discussing it a while back (like a few years!) on here so maybe try searching the thread a bit.

Motorcycle I saw on the day I came for my interview that there was motorcycle parking with plenty of free spaces even during term time! Do I have to pay to use the spaces?
I'm not the expert on motorcycles. As has already been said it's free on campus, but I'm not sure if there are time limits and if so, not sure about at the actual accommodation. The best person to tell you for sure is probably UEAAccommodation...

.
But they are probably busy atm and I haven't seen them on here in a while, so if not then I'd ring to check with the office about whether you can bring it.

Unless I misunderstood and you've already checked that bit!

Hey everyone,

I'm a first year, moving to UEA in September, and I don't think I'm going to get a place in University accommodation. I get along with most people and am doing Politics with a Foundation year.

I'm looking for flat mates! I'd like to share with first years as I'm sure I'm not alone in this situation. A couple of us are thinking of getting a house, please any first years looking for accom message me!
I'm studying the same course after being offered a change course offer so am too no longer guaranteed accommodation which sucks. I wonder if we get more of a priority than those who went through clearing. Anyway, i will probably be looking for people to share with, but would it not be better to wait until the 2nd September when they said we'll be being updated further.

tbh I think it varies from year to year. When I was in halls Nelson was definitley one of the more sociable halls and well known for its pre drinking sessions. Anyway remember your not just confined to parties in your halls, you'll meet others who can invite you to parties at theirs.
