    Thank you for all the info I just hope it's sociable and clean! Do you have any photos of your room or of any of the blocks?
    I do have a couple of pictures but they're are on my old laptop's hard-drive so not retrievable at the moment. I assure you, the rooms are not bad and although a little outdated are clean and comfortable. Also a cleaner will come to clean the communal areas every week or 2, so thats the bathroom, kitchen and hallway.

    No problem! Me and 3 of my Nixon Court flatmates moved into a flat on London Road, which is less than 10mins from uni. London Road is absolutely awesome! Not only is uni closeby but also the city centre, train station etc. And now for my final year I will be living in my own flat on De Montfort Street which is also about 10mins from uni. But 2 of my flatmates will be moving back to Nixon

    https://applicantportal.le.ac.uk/

    Before taking a picture you need to read the requirements etc. You can do this by clicking next a few times. Click upload a picture and then it goes to the screen of requirements before you upload it properly.

    hope this helps

    yeah that happened with me too, I think their website needs some work but I think it has sent. Email them in 3 weeks or something if it hasn't come through.

    Aren't they? If this is a rule no one pays any attention to it, plenty of people have bfs/gfs there regularly and quite a few will have a number of mates from home for something like their bday.

    You can't get them a meal though, you need a JCR card for that.

    Are there lifts in halls? I'm on the fourth floor of Ragdale if that makes a difference. I'm just thinking about how awkward it would be to move all my stuff in if I have to go up and down stairs though I'm sure I'd manage nonetheless haha.

    Ah okay, that makes me feel better It's in the FAQ on the website, they've got some pretty blunt answers! Would you be able to tell me whether it's just the canteen at JF where you can eat or are you able to around the uni campus too??

    There was a lift in the hall I saw so I'm guessing there is in all of them

    Thanks Do you know if we need to bring:
    - Iron
    - Ironing board
    - Washing powder/liquid for laundry
    - Toilet paper?

    I know the ensuite rooms get cleaned once a fortnight...are they hoovered? Or are only the bathrooms cleaned? I hoover my bedroom at home at least once a week because I practically molt....

    Also are there kettles/microwaves/toasters supplied in the kitchens of catered accommodation?

    There was definitely an ironing board and hoover (my mum says there was an iron too), but I'm not quite sure about the washing powder/detergent and toilet paper, but I'm going to ring tomorrow so I could ask them all of this. Also on the FAQ thing it says that the fortnightly clean is mainly for your bathroom (so we clean the rest) and "Public areas are to be kept clean and tidy by all residents. You will be assisted by domestic staff on a once a week basis." I'm guessing by public areas they mean the kitchen/lounge area right?

    If you do then let me know. I keep meaning to call up but I'm always busy and/or forget! -.-

    Yes, they mean kitchen/lounge areas are cleaned for us.

    Thanks for all the help!

    You'll only be able to eat your paid for meals at your halls' canteen, JoFo in your case, but they will keep behind food for a bit after closing time if needs be. There are plenty of places to eat on campus but I'm afraid you will have to pay for them.

    Can anyone tell me how much stock you should put on reputation by halls?

    People seem to say GMS is a total party hall, JoFo is less social, and Beaumont somewhere in between. Tbh i'll be fine if GMS is a total mash-up depending on who i meet, but from people's descriptions beaumont sounds more me.

    I'd assume it might turn into a bit of a self-fulfilling prophecy if people look up what people have said and choose by reputation.

    Not a huge amount. You can end up with a totally anti social block in Lasdun and have a block of party animals in JoFo, it depends on the people in them. The reputations make certain situations more likely in each hall but hardly guaranteed.
