    My kitchen is disgusting, the fridge is disgusting aswell I thought there is supposed to be designated parts of he fridge? Horrible. Dirty kids. And it is gull even though only mathmos have arrived and only 1 of them is in my corridoor.
    My room is so small that it is around 2.5mx3.5/4m including the ensuite. So i can walk to other side in literally two big steps.
    Oh yeh I forgot that it is approx 30 miles from cambridge.
    Upside
    College grounds are wonderful tho, so big, although what ****ing difference does this make lmao.
    Atlesst the room was clean.

    Wow!! Was the fridge not emptied and cleaned by he students leaving last summer? Or has the other mathmo on your corridor filled up the whole fridge already?! The bedder might clean the kitchen on monday/whenever they restart working and it might get better then The kitchen often ends up a mess whichever college you're at just out of luck of who you're sharing it with. I got fed up of sharing a fridge in 1st year, so got a room with its own fridge last year, and this year am getting a room with my own gyp

    Haha I went past Homerton for the first time at the end of last term (my tutor had a bbq at his house and he lives near Homerton), it turned out not to seem quite as far out as I though it was. Never been inside the college though. The leisure park and shops near by are quite nice, too

    Is the stuff in date? If it's been left there accidentally for months then you could just throw it out?

    Probably from conference guests. The kitchens are cleaned every day but Sunday, and the fridges probably won't be cleaned out until this coming week when they prepare for everyone to arrive. After that if it's disgusting, make sure everyone on your corridor is throwing stuff out when it goes bad, or do what I do and throw everything out that has gone off. The cleaners wont go through everything in the fridge to check it's in date for you.

    I was assured that we would all think each of our own colleges was the best.

    Now I am worried. Perhaps that is a lie, perhaps everyone at Cambridge secretly wishes they applied to Trinity.
