    third, was one of the people that was registering everyone at the start who had to mark them off on the list rather than the laptop as it wouldn't work for me.

    clifton's really good during the week, constantly busy and we have markets linked to the city council on campus once a term so you can buy lots of different things plus we get a fruit/veg stall on campus twice a week so its a lot cheaper than the supermarkets and whole lot fresher.

    the student union opens at midday on the weekend, unfortunately costa is only open on mon-friday which is a bit of a pain so is the cafes/canteen in george elliott too and the shop only opens at 11am on the weekends. its same with city campus though as the union and shop are only open certain hours while food outlets are mostly shut.
    ah i wasnt there right at the start. got there a bit later. and fair enough. its just at the other places i visited all the shops were open on saturdays.

    sometimes they open them but only really if events are on but rest of the week they are always open but with so many shops and things close by and easily reachable to the city then most people aren't bothered by it much or seem to be anyway

    Sweet, cheers for the help, think I'm leaning towards Hampden Halls at the moment
    No problem Hampden is good, I knew someone who used to live there in her first year, so I've been in them if you have any questions. Probably can't tell you much though aha.

    i know the prices for both peverell and the new accommodation on clifton if anyone wants to find out then quote me to know them
    have you seen what the new accomodation looks like from the inside? or has it not been built enough yet? if that makes any sense haha. damn was hoping the new accom wouldn't be so expensive, will have to try and work around it!

    its not totally finished yet so unfortunately i won't see inside at all, I only know what it could look like from artists impressions and things. Knew it would be kinda expensive but not that much

    Ahh trust me you pick it up pretty quick! I thought it would take me ages but I actually picked it up pretty quick if I'm honest!

    The hardest thing was getting used to pads! Seriously! lol... I must admit though for a receiver I'm sometimes scared of getting hit lol! But I enjoy it when I do! I got creamed yesterday in training and got badly winded but managed to hold onto the ball so was like yeah baby!

    D Line you have to be a quick big guy, O Line you gotta protect the QB like mad lol.
