    I've not heard many complaints but from personal experience, I've always found the O2 network as good as can be expected.

    Regardless of network, the nature of the buildings and the large number of people using mobile phones in the area so lots of different signals colliding means you don't get great coverage wherever you are indoors.

    It is way too early

    Next year for ensuite you will have the choice of ASH, Williw Court and the next new building, Beech Court.

    You can apply to be near a friend anywhere but it is a bad idea. If you each live in different places then you can meet one another's new friends and so double the number of people you know. Also, you are going to uni as an individual not a pair so don't tie yourself down to your friend.

    Look on the uni website for more information about the accommodation and then go and forget about if for a year because until you know for sure that you are coming it isn't worth thinking about!

    You don't need it, they just make them available before the start of semester, to help reduce the queues on Monday 9th. Although it's the Crush Hall in Pathfoot building (not the Atrium) where you collect them.

    I don't really understand the question, before you send off the DDI forms then surely you can change it as much as you like.

    If you have already sent off the forms then you'll need to call residential services. Once you arrive, you can call in to the office any time and change your payment method - you can even pay them in cash if you fee like it.

    It is probably best to ring them. They will either just change it over the phone or ask you to complete a new form.

    IM = introductory meeting (full list of IMs here: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show...1&postcount=12). CT = class test. http://www.aro.stir.ac.uk/academic/t...ing-system.php

    Yes, it's absolute chaos. If you can, get your parents to arrive a few hours early, get a parking space, then you can go and have a look round campus.

    Why is it so busy? I can't understand why everyone would be so desperate to get booked in? :confused:

    You're not allowed guests during Freshers week - and they're pretty strict during exam periods, but otherwise it's not a problem having people stay. I'm pretty sure the rules have changed since I was in halls, so I'm sure someone else will fill you in on the specifics.

    As has been said, you are not allowed any guests during freshers week and not are you allowed guests during the exam period.

    In AKD and the other traditional halls (ASH and Geddes), you are allowed to sign up to 2 people into your room. Officially, you have got to sign anyone in by 1am which is a nuisance if you are in a club that closes at 2am.

    If you ask the porter nicely before you go out if you can sign someone later then at their discretion they might let you.

    By the book, people shouldn't be staying more than 2 or 3 nights but again if you ask a porter nicely you might get around this.
