Has anyone heard from college parents yet? I heard from a 3rd year that they already knew their college kids a few days before we got A level results!

I thought the letter said we'd be allocated parents on arrival... I guess that means we just won't have any contact with them till we meet them. Sounds cool - someone to say "hello" when you haven't even the tiniest clue what's going on, where you're going or who anyone is.

I know this guy from work who's a 3rd year King's, I'm sure he said he's known from before results. Maybe they're just all lazy gits

Got my King's accomodation letter Thursday...yep yep.

I got Spalding, which was my first choice

Perhaps grad letters go out first? I doubt you'll have to wait until you get there. They'll probably arrive soon.

Good luck

Me and the hubby sent off our letters to the Admissions Office to be sent out to the kids before A level results came out!

Sorry you haven't heard anything yet! I definitely knew where my room was before I came up, but maybe they've changed the system this year?

So King's have the letters but have not sent them out? That's weird, they've usually been quite organised. I'm getting impatient now :mad: Oh well, at least they are being disorganized now and not back in January when the offer letters were expected...that would have killed me for sure!

I do have my room number though Its K314 which im guessing is in Keynes. (?!)

Does anyone know anhything about this room? Is it ensuit? The rent seems less than some of the other people's at different colleges so im worried its a bit crappy:p: Any info would be great.

Jigglypuff, what else was in the info pack ? Anything about freshers week?

Your room is en-suite in Keynes Yeah I think it's good value for what it is.
http://www.kcsu.org.uk/kords3/ (scroll down and you can click on your room number for pictures!) So it's not crappy at all, it's great! It has a mini fridge and everything :eek: I am on the second floor, you are on the third.

In my freshers pack I got my room number, college parents letter, a map and a booklet which tells you about King's. Nothing about freshers week that we didn't already know, but it was useful all the same (tells you term dates, info about facilities, etc). I'm sure they will give you the booklet soon.

Hey, I'm in K118! That's pretty close! And I've got a CompSci dad and a Classicist mum, and a brother and a sister! I'm ecstatic, Keynes was definitely my first choice!

Hi again guys. I think I posted somewhere further back in this topic, not sure, I don't use TSR much but I vaguely remember the title.

Anyways yeah i received my stuff about the accomodation today too. Noooni I'm in K310, I guess that must be really close to your room. Hope you don't have too many insane parties keeping me awake... actually on seconds thoughts, as long as I'm invited it's ok. :p:

Judging from the photos I don't think anyone's going to be partying in their room actually, my room looks tiny, oh well.

I received 3 letters from my college parents inside the envelope along with the accomodation info. I'm a bit confused actually, I think I have two college families - 2 mums, 2 dads and a 'sister', lol. Well anyway don't worry if you don't hear anything from yours, I seem to have plenty to share!
