    Guys moving into Monte halls, I'm going to be there helping you all move in! So don't bring anything heavy I can't carry up stairs!

    Also, not sure if this is 'allowed' but if anybody is studying Philosophy I have some first year philo books I'd like to sell! No writing inside, good condition.

    If the website says arrive on the 25th, arrive on the 25th. You'll be given the key on arrival so the occupancy dates are rather irrelevant in that respect.

    Hmm ok! I'll ring up and confirm with them tomorrow just in case. It's going to slightly mess up my arrangements!; I've also only bought tickets for the 26th freshers party!

    You have some form of induction lectures on a day during Freshers Week - I think for Maths it was the Monday or Tuesday.

    Actual lectures start the following week, so Monday 4th October.

    It says on the site the 25th and the 26th though, I'm pretty certain that we're supposed to move in on the date given on our accommodation offer. :dontknow:

    You're South Hill aren't you? Out of curiosity, what did accommodation services say when you rang up?

    South Hill, yeah.

    They said I should honour the date on my contract offer page. They said I would not be able to move in if I arrived on the 25th. However, one person in a similar situation was told if they paid £21 they could move in the day earlier.

    It's a bit shambolic; i'm sure there'll be confusion when people arrive on the 25th expecting to move in without any hassle.

    I've got to pack tonight as I've just finished work, then be up early to finish packing, pick up some wages from my second job and head up to Soton.

    I say 'up' because I live in SW Dorset. :p:
