    I've just sent mine off - applied for single/ensuites in Beit/Eastside/Southside/Weeks/Garden.
    I'm such a mess in the morning and it takes me forever to sort my hair out - I just know if I end up far away I will be late for my lectures....

    Yeah, I'll be the one falling over loads and looking like a right loon

    And yes, that's the page. Did you comment on Izzy's "where is everyone from" thread? Because if you did, I might have an inkling of who you are (especially based on your username... xD)



    Which some of us will never ever see... (I'm international )
    Yeahh I did (haha what does my username tell you? I might be able to take a good guess of who you are as well XD)

    Oh wow don't you have to pay something like 20 grand a year!? :eek:

    (Edited to use romaji because TSR seems to hate East Asian Languages...)

    Ano, sarubobo - nihonjin desu ka? I was going to ask if you actually owned one, and in which color. XD
    Mine should be somewhat obvious actually...well, that's what one of my TSR-turned-Facebook friends said.

    And yes, 22k a year, give or take. >< Yaaaaaay paying through the nose. /not!

    I think there's piano in some halls' common rooms (Garden and Pembridge has one, not sure about others) but I doubt having it in your room is banned because I know someone who brought their electric drum-kit in their room (when I first read this I got excited about having you as my room mate as I play the piano too but realised you're a guy so we can't be room mates :P)
    Thanks for the advice everyone, also, are there practice rooms in the main college buildings?

    P.S. if anyone wants cheap beginners piano lessons... let me know

    A good way to sound needy, but I hope that the application processors will acknowledge your point and pair you up with a girl

    Yes, I've visited Pembridge and they had a black upright piano in the common room (not sure if it was digital), Garden seems to have one in the common room as well looking at the visual tour on the accommodation website!

    im under the impression that imperial's student body consists of half internatino students and half caucasian students. i know this probably isnt very true in reality but for the sake of the question lets pretend it is. are there any halls which one 'group' favours over the others? (im wording this very carefully and i dont mean to offend!)
    Not that I have noticed, pretty random. Although as internationals are generaly minted (have you SEEN the fees?) of would extrapolated there will be more in the ultra super mega delux rooms in eastside/southside but this is just conjecture.

    It's OK. I take casual racist remarks quite well, especially if they're jokes
    And I'd go as far as saying Imperial is an 'Asian' uni, because of the sheer number of asians As long as you're not actually racist, and have a good sense of humour, everything will be all good

    Are you on the FB group? Because I'm starting to think whether this Wrench person is actually a troll, and gets called Wench on the FB group

    I did the maths, and in most cases the number of students in the single/double/triple rooms add up to the number of self-catered students in the website. So does that mean that everyone is self-catered i.e. makes their own food? Is there a cafeteria/mess kind of thing? Otherwise I better start to learn how to cook, or get a job if I'm to eat outside everyday!

    Yes. Everywhere is self-catered. There are some canteens/cafes at the uni itself but I think learning to cook is a good idea. It's an important life skill after all.

    just for the sake of being pedantic

    home student =/= caucasian

    international =/= non- caucasian

    Tell me about it! I get what you mean though - the majority of my other Asian peers at school are loaded. I'm currently at boarding school on a 75% scholarship (music + academic); and I'm one of the few Asians who actually has one. The rest of them just rock up in 6th form, pay through the nose and can afford to do it once per term, my folks still have to do it by monthly installments :P
