    Hi,

    I have just received my offer for Great Dover street Apt. Can someone please kindly tell me something about it? (room, bathroom, surrounding areas, people, etc)

    Besides, do they have different size of room?

    Thanks.

    Hey mate.

    Just wanted to ask you how you managed to find out which accomodation you were able to get?

    Cheers

    That's strange.

    I did not know that Great Dover Street is shared with other UoL students?

    Cool!

    Both KCL and LSE have separate residences there.

    That's stupid.

    If we are going to share then why not do it properly?

    Why should LSE students stay in different parts of accomodation than KCL students stay?

    Fair enough.

    Diversity is fun though, so what a shame.

    I think the two residences just happen to be on the same street, which is why they're both referred to as Great Dover Street. They have nothing to do with each other, it would seem, as they're not intercollegiate halls. The only thing they're sharing is the street. :P

    Ok, I understand.

    Thank you, although I still think it is a shame...

    That's what I meant - apologies if it was not clearer.

    The residences for KCL and the LSE are separate, but next door to each other and are basically duplicates of one another - I think the only difference between the two is that the LSE had phones in their rooms, we didn't and the LSE have a bar (which they invite KCLers to).

    I lived at GDS for my first year and really enjoyed it. If you have any specific questions, feel free to send me a PM and I'll do my best to answer them well.
