    If someone is posting something to us at college, is the address just going to be:
    [Name]
    Exeter College
    Oxford

    ?
    Yeah, I think we pick up our post at the Porter's Lodge.

    Yup, you'll have a pidgeon hole (your 'pidge') at the Porter's Lodge (the 'podge'). So yes, sentences such as "I'm going to check my pidge at the podge" are perfectly valid

    Thanks!

    Unrelated: I just accidentally smashed my head very hard against a wall whilst trying to open a door. I hope I didn't squash all the clever out of the brain right before I start my degree!

    Everything's better with a nice glass.

    On an actually practical note, what was the consensus on how much people were bringing (besides 'oh my goodness so much')? I've just almost filled two suitcases, but bringing a third just for a dinner suit, glasses and lots of alcohol feels like a bit much.

    EDIT: Behold my alcohol.

    That depends on the college — Magdalen has a separate post room.

    I'm up to four suitcases (one of which is a BEAST), a large carrier bag and a rucksack already xD

    Excellent. It feels really odd filling a suitcase with coats and scarves in this weather, but hopefully we'll get a mean November to compensate for now.

    Yes it is! I'm already at Oxford (Univ) and the letter I received just went straight into my pigeon hole.

    On this subject, what about deliveries? For example, am I allowed to have a parcel delivered to college?

    um... I'm not quite finished yet, but it's looking like it will be 3 suitcases, 4 ikea bags, 5 (smallish) boxes, 2 rucksacks and a couple of portfolios. Oh, and a bike. And a clothes horse. And a rug.
