    Thanks, I'll try to ask during the first weeks (hopefully no one will think of doing this and I'll get the job )

    Don't they just put all the jobs up on the jobs website? for the main uni anyway (i.e. not the union)

    Not too sure for the bookshop.

    Has to be said, when they got more quite patrol for exams, I never saw any advestisements for it.

    Nor for Nourish this year actually. I find it very hard to believe that not one member of staff has left and needs replacing.

    After a conversation with my dad, I realised that I'm paying **** loads for a catered accomodation (especially as it's Digby) and it doesn't seem to me to have any other advantages. Does anyone know if the self catered flats near the uni (Opal, freemen etc...) and other ones in the city or private accomodation (abode) would be cheaper overall?

    I would have a look at this it give you a brief outline http://www2.le.ac.uk/offices/accommo...ed-city-living.

    Opal court you are looking at around 4,000 a year as the contract is 42 weeks suited to Internationals really, Freeman's cheaper definitely, depends where you want to stay Nixon Court for example.
    Also if you want private accomodation, there are a few alternatives towards the Royal Hospital to live in.

    Merely curious, if it'll make you a little more forthcoming, I'm in Blue Block :P
    I'm a bit wary of someone reading this, but let's just say that the block is the same colour as my username and we'll end at that.

    No way would those be cheaper, only Mary Gee, and it's like a prison. Though Digby has rats every year, so probably not that much worse. Opal is like 6000+ a year, same with Nixon. Freeman's is slightly cheaper but not much, and they pretty much only put internationals (mainly asians) in there from what I know.

    We're known for being quite rowdy and loud in our own block, I doubt other blocks have chairs outside just for when we want to be outside and beer cans, pizza boxes on the floor everywhere :mmm:

    Now that you mention it I keep hearing things at night but I thought it was my flatmates :afraid:

    I know opal is quite expensive so I was thinking to go to Freeman's, I don't know how much it is but I'm willing to change anything for a hall that is 3900+ a year for an old hall and awful food that we have to go to another hall to get there.
