    I'd say the bus is quite fair -- picks you up, always has seats available, then drops you off...everything you want in a bus tbf.

    In other news, the fare is around 90p with a student oyster, I believe.

    RV1 - from just behind the bankside halls to covent gardens-ish (2 mins walk from LSE)
    yep, although it takes a very indirect route, so what would be a 5 minute journey takes 15. Still better than walking :rolleyes:

    I suggest the original poster of this thread puts all the pros and cons in the first post so it's easier for people to see instead of having to go through loads of posts?
    Done it!

    Just realised how over-represented Bankside is... Need to get some more opinions!

    3) roseberry

    its probably the most popular set of choices.

    Well I'm thinking more:

    I) Rosebery
    II) Bankside
    III) ? (The whole 'It's so close!' isn't of major appeal to me.)

    I think I'm going for

    1) HH
    2) Lilian Knowles
    3) Rosebery / Bankside

    Does anyone have any experience of Lilian K?? I've only really decided on it as it's self-catered.

    Also, I am right in thinking you pick only 3 LSE halls or 3 IC halls. Not 3 LSE AND 3 IC?

    cheers

    What are the chances of a fresher not getting an LSE hall and having to go there? I really cba to research IC halls but if there's a chance I might have to go there...

    I see - the accommodation bit in the pack doesn't really give information about in which halls you have to share a room in the first year etc...

    Which halls is it compulsory?

    I was talking to a friend who said that in High Holborn all the good rooms go to the postgrads... the the crap rooms which face a wall and let v little light through are depressing?

    Anyway to get a good room with a good view?
    Hey,

    do you know any more disadvantages about living in High Holborn? Really want to go there, but want a fair opinion.
    The website says there "Currently, there is a predominantly undergraduate population". So there can't be that many postgrads taking up good rooms.
