The nice woman at Goldney said I can store my stuff in the porters lodge from Friday until move in day.

(yes this means I'll have no parents on move-in day and hence no food :\ take pity on me)

From anyone who's been/lived there - how secure is the porters lodge? As I'd like to have my stuff still there when I come back

hey vip - would you know this? ^

I've heard there is a Pirate Party, a 90s rave, and a school disco.

Edit: And my Goldney pack DID mention Freshers...

Also, it says to return a document by 11th September... but I couldn't find the document in the pack- what does it look like?!

Yay! I got into Goldney too! Is there anyone on here that actually got into a different hall. Suppose Goldney was just earlier at sending out packs than everyone else.

I did notice it didn't tell you whether your room was ensuite or not. They will probaby tell you once you've accepted. yes?

^^ Read the little Golney booklet and you have to write the letter yourself, theres no document. weird ??

OK, answer to first question- Porter's lodge is, as far as I know, usually locked. I think it was open on moving in day last year but there was someone manning it all the time. I'm sure it's secure if that's where Rachel's said you can put it.

I don't know anything about the document but it probably is just a short letter accepting your place. I can't remember if I had to write one, but it was a while ago, lol (I'm old...)

I'm not sure about the en-suite thing either, as I've never had an en-suite room. I would imagine that if it doesn't say that you have one, you probably don't but I'm really not sure. You could ring the office and find out, but they may not have organised who is going in which flat yet.

As for how much money they want, you'll get an invoice a few weeks into term and either pay in the finance office or ignore it if you've done the direct debit thing.

I think all that's true, as far as I know/can remember! Wow, strange to think I might be in a flat with any of you guys. I hope my flatmates don't think "oh my god, she's really old!" cos I might be a third year but I sure don't feel/act like one!

You'll find that quite hard to do, they'll be signing people into the bar by name, sorry!

No idea why the price in the prospectus is less. I haven't had my stuff through yet so I don't know what the hall fees are, but I guess they've just decided to put it up. I think there's probably some tinyprint in the prospectus that say fees are subject to change, or something like that.
