its a mystery, its like the staircases in that film with david bowie in it......labyrinth

i've tried to figure it out all year :confused:

oh and theres the rumour that they're designed like that as the council said they would pay for the roofs of the buildings, so the uni got them designed to be almost all roof and little vertical wall

could be bs tho!

lol yeh thats probably true, cunning plan by manc! aargh that film scares me, hope its not TOO much like that!!!

Hey guys, I am staying at Derby house. Anybody else? As I read the posts in this thread above, people are mostly from other houses. Are there any parties whitworth organizes to meet other students from other houses in the halls? Or is it that you have to go to each room knocking and get to know everybody :biggrin:

By the way, rooms don't look too luxurious, hmm I wonder is it only in derby or everywhere else is the same? Just curious :biggrin:

Im in derby!! wahey. lol, i really dont think rooms are too luxurious at it will be cool, adds to the fun! Im moving in on the sat, waho.

Also anyone know what the communal bits are like in the flats? How big are kitchens etc. Is there like a sitting area and that. I have no idea.

Thanks x
Ok I emailed about a receipt and got this reply:

'We received your deposit and can confirm your place in Garstang house. We don’t actually send the receipts to new residents as we hold onto them until your arrival. You will find it in your post box here when you arrive.'

So thats me told then.
i got a receipt for the £150 prepayment
but that was from the accommodation office

Mmmm.. I've been assigned to Withworth Park, Aberdeen Hall.

I've paid the GBP 150 deposit but I've not received the receipt. Are we supposed to receive one?

Any clarification?
GBP it'd be far easier to put £
i got a reciept for the £150, i'm in a different hall but i don't think that matters as you send the cheque to the accommodation office and not the hall itself.

my reciept said "THANK YOU FOR YOUR CUSTOM"
