    Congratulations to you all I recently visited the London Road campus and explored the facilities for Architecture - it looks phenomenal!

    As Architecture is a new course at Reading, once you are all settled in; you may want to consider setting up the Architecture Society with the Student Union - that way as your course grows an develops throughout the 3 years so will the members entering in later years (https://www.rusu.co.uk/activities/setupanewgroup/)

    Hey man how's it going? Sherfield looks decent (they all did ngl), but I chose Mackinder because it's closer to London Road campus and I'm always late for things haha. Mackinder, Sherfield and Bridges create a triangle of buildings that are as far away from each other as possible :cry:

    Yeah definitely, I figured I'd get the one I liked best since we're getting the money. I was wondering, how necessary do you think it is to have a laptop for the course/ university in general?

    Considering our course, I'd say we need a laptop that can keep up with our multitasking and CAD software. Been looking around and it depends on how much you want to spend.

    From experience it's definitely wise to have one -- if not certainly a tablet thats portable to login to Blackboard remotely etc

    No I'm staying at Child's! I think that must have been my second choice, I don't really remember what I chose. Thought I'd take advantage of my scholarship too haha!
