I'll be in Aberdeen on the friday due to travel arrangements, so I want to check with unite if I can move in a day early if possible. Comming from south of London, so its a decent way.

The actual office doesn't leave much in the way of queueing space in spring gardens, so if there's a long queue and I end up outside, I hope its not raining!

Havn't found anyone in my flat yet block 72 flat 301

Wow if you could get in a day early that's be great, i wish i thought about phoning them up and asking but as it happens ive had to book a travelodge which seems stupid now. Let me know what they say!
Also you have to book a check-in appointment so that you can move in so i'd do that soon

I phoned them up and asked if i could move my stuff in on the friday and they said that's fine. I'm not actually booking in 'til the Sunday though cause of my mum and dads work now i'm thinking i should've just asked if i could move in on the friday! I live 5 hours away as well! Although that doesnt seem half as bad as you guys

Room A, Flat 202, Block 70 Babyyyyy

As anyone figured out what our address will be?
I'm assuming the triple figure numbers describe the floor and flat, so 302 would flat number two on the third floor (I've only seen 001 and 002 variants so I think there might be 2 flats per floor). Finally, the block number could be the street number you use (block 70 would be "70 Spring Gardens" ).

So, a possible address would be:
70 Spring Gardens
Third Floor Flat 2
Post code

Does anyone know if this is correct?

Problem is, i've already agreed to work on saturday but i work for my mum so ... maybe i could ask if she can manage without me.
Might upset her a bit if i leave two days early though haha! Ahh dear, i can see it now, i arrive on the sunday whilst everyone has been out and is hungover, all teary eyed and upset from saying bye to my family. What a first impression i'll make ...

Aww Either way I'm sure you'll be fine

Think about me! When everybody is arriving with their parents I'll be stumbling out of bed at 2pm unshaven potentially hungover

I can see it now "someone call reception we think our flats been broken into!"

Haha well if thats the way its going, do it in style. Hold a bottle of vodka in one hand, make sure you stink of stale beer, be wearing as little as necessary and insist on hugging your flatmates' parents. Then stumble around shouting abuse at walls and stubbing your toes on doors. Follow this up with claiming a whole fridge to yourself and hitting on one of your lucky flatmates et voila, you will be hated for the rest of the year

Extras such as movie props, pinatas, baseball bats and blasting music are optional.

Driving from Darlington (know anyone else who's going locally?:p: ) to block 56 G1. Not sure what time to set off... arrival ?mid-day :confused:, presumably the check in times will be pretty flexible (I hope).

Going to read History
