    Ashburne, according to the accommodation FAQ on this forum, is all female in the undergraduate part of the hall. There is a small, mixed postgraduate block.
    You were right after all... only girls for undergraduate. I wasn't aware of that when I applied... but it's ok, I'll get used to it.
    Thanks a lot

    I'm now on the Ashburne Hall on facebook and there also boys there, so I don't know... Will do when I get there, I guess
    Could well have changed since the FAQ were written.

    EDIT: Damn, I really should've read your next post.

    Hey! Does anybody know how to order a bedding pack? I'm staying at Ashburne Hall
    Thanks
    (Original post by Orientation Guide on page 15)
    If you are going to be living in University accommodation, you might want to order a bedding pack to cut down on your luggage. This should be done in advance at estore.manchester.ac.uk. Please type the words ‘bedding pack’ in the search box.
    Seems like they removed it. Try emailing accommodation{at}manchester.ac.u k or calling them and they should bring it back. It is possible to buy a bedding pack directly from Campus Reception when you arrive. Alternatively, you can also just go to Argos or ASDA and maybe buy bedding a bit cheaper.

    2. Install VPN client by following this guide.

    I'll be on the BSc but I may consider moving onto the MChem in the 2nd year depending on how well I do in the first. Do you have an accommodation offer yet? if so, where you at?

    I'm Mchem-ing. Nope, no accommodation - I did A levels, so it'll be allocated after the 14th of August. I did just email the accommodation office requesting a change of my third choice from Dalton Ellis to Oak House.
