What did you apply for? The royal suite?
LOL, no royal suite but 5 single rooms. One of them is ensuite. But I didn't know they can allocate people into double rooms.

They might as well have just done away with the application forms, and randomly allocate people to rooms.

It really caught me by surprise.

Reading the Wardens letter for Fisher Hall is making me feel much better:

"there are no storage facilities for bicycles inside Fisher Hall." "bikes are not covered by the insurance policy" "bikes are not covered by the insurance policy" "Expensive electronic equipment may not be adequately covered by college insurance" "we have very strict rules regarding noise in hall" "Please do not bring hi-fi systems with you. You are also advised to leave behind any sound systems which come bundled with PCs." "No electrical cooking devices are allowed in your bedroom." "Space: Please remember that you will only have a very limited amount of storage space in your room, so only bring essentials."

I'm sure most of this isn't hall specific, but this guy sure knows how to make you excited to get there.

Hehe, the one for Bernard Sunley says "There are bike anchors outside, but bikes are often stolen from here"

Other than that it all sounds good

Hell no. I wanted to get a bike to compensate Fisher and they have no storage for bikes. Just great.
I agree about the common room it doesn't look too good. I just hope they decided not to show twin-room because it's so awful. It was my last choice.
Maybe at least I'll get a good room mate.

To be fair, i was cutting it to make it look as bad as possible:

"Bicycles: Unfortunately there are no storage facilities for bicycles inside Fisher Hall. Bikes are usually left on designated outdoor railings specifically supplied by the Borough for this purpose. Bikes left on other railings will be removed and you are not allowed to keep a bicycle in your room or in corridors. We strongly recommend that you obtain separate bicycle insurance, and purchase a robust lock, as bikes are not covered by the insurance policy arranged for hall residents by Imperial College London.£

It was my last choice too, but from what i remember our choices wern't actually numbered.

So maybe I'll get one.

True but it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out the order. Well, I got no choice and I'll have to live with it. It's only for a year.

To be honest mate I think you'll end up sharing... society likes to stick all the mad people in a corner and forget about them.

I mean, biology! What were you thinking? ;D

No news is probably good news - it seems no one has been assigned Beit or Southside yet.

Yeh i doubt it's too far from a bus stop, it never is in London. I'm not actually much of a bike person myself anyway. Id far prefer to be near the tube. It looks like it is a decent walk to the tube; not far enough to rule out the possibility of using the tube, but far enough away for it to be annoying.

I applied to neither, that's why I am worried. I just have to be positive I guess!

I got a Single Standard in Southwell Hall... seems to be quite small as only 150ish people lives in it... and there are already 4-5 people on this post who has been allocated there... seems a bit far to the South Kensington camps as well though... is anyone going to Southwell getting a bike?
