    I don't really understand why someone wouldn't want to go there, huge rooms, en suite and the prices aren't bad (compare to AV for example). Sure, it's not great if you plan on spending half or more of your days in the first year drunk, staggering all the way back home would be tougher at HB than at rootes or somewhere like that :p: I personally don't though and prefer to just get a cheap bike to eliminate the (already minimal) distance annoyance, and have a relatively quiet place to sleep/work.

    Arr nice one!
    You're officially the 3rd person who's said that
    So at least there really are others who want to go there!
    :yes:
    the bike is a good idea, I may steal it. (The idea, not the bike :lolwut: )
    Quick, delete your posts before everyone swoops in and makes HB the most competitive hall !
    :five:
    Edit : Just checked the rent on AV/HB, crazy, crazy rents.

    Hey, I completely agree with nearly all of what you said!
    Having close friends is way better than trashing your body for fun ^^
    I guess that if you go to Heronbank, there's a fair chance that the others there will think similarly too.

    Thinking that Heronbank was more expensive than AV, I was just going off to find evidence ...
    When I saw that you're right - I honestly hadn't noticed that!
    The thing is that I'll probably be there only for those 30 weeks anyway, so in my situation AV would be cheaper in effect.
    So will you be staying there for the full 39 weeks? :cool:
    Those are pretty much the lines along which I am thinking. I guess similarly minded people will end up in similar places, because of reasons such as these. Besides, being in one hall doesn't mean you can't meet anyone from any other halls (lectures/seminars/library are all still accessible, not to mention the SU), but being a bit more laid back, I like to have a place where to I can "escape". And though I'm not a drinker, I don't mind the odd drink or two :p: but I'm sure that can be dealt with the 3 times a term that it happens haha.

    Yep, I'd be going for the full 39 weeks, because I don't actually live in the UK (will be coming over there from China! Am Austrian though, so EU fees for me ) and therefore would like to leave stuff like clothes or books in my room over the holidays, and probably stay for 2-3ish weeks per holiday as well.

    Well HB is one of the biggest halls (if not the biggest) and while not crazy expensive, it's not exactly cheap either, so I think people who want a HB room will get a HB room. Also many will be scared of being left out of the "social hub" rootes, which imo is the one that's going to be oversubscribed, with many coming to HB as second and third choices.

    Haha, that would be funny ...
    What a good idea, getting a bike (so Sliced Bread can steal it - mwuahahaha!)

    I guess it's still nowhere near as crazy as rent for London unis though.
    And it doesn't seem to dissuade people from wanting to apply for AV! :nah:

    Rootes looks like a prison from the outside though :rolleyes:

    Yeah, I suppose it'll be manageable, esp since apparently there's lots of jobs to be had on and around the campus according to the tour guides I had.

    That's true.
    Just going from maths to Heronbank, you'd meet about 3000 people on the way in any case!
    I'm thinking about going to the SU and the Arts Centre loads, so yeah, it's not like we have to cut ourselves off from society or anything!
    Definitely agree on the idea of "escaping". That's why I either wanted to be at Heronbank, or somewhere ridiculously close to a bus stop, in the hope that I can find somewhere peaceful around Kenilworth or something (I'm thinking of getting a yearly bus pass by the way).
    Yep, I'm for the odd drink too, but rather whiskey or port than cider! - hah, I'm an old granddad. :cool:

    Ar brilliant, so the 39-week let fits perfectly with you.
    Is paying EU fees a good thing? ^^

    Oo yay :p: , that's scary, we'll actually be in the same lectures haha. How come you didn't want to keep going with German?
    I can not stand it anymore, it's so difficult and I don't understand it. All the cases and tenses and the verb 'werden'. Just can't abide it. But how exciting! Were you at the open day on the 29th January?

    Urrrrhm, just because I do Psychology doesn't mean I psychoanalyse everyone

    Rootes isn't en suite, it's the most 'social' one though.
