    Hey Amy!

    I'm in Falk-egg too. I got the booklets and stuff last Thursday. Did you get anything? What course are you doing? I'm doing Industrial Design.

    What did you hear? Is there any thing in particular we should know about these halls?!? I've not visited them.

    Falk-Egg was none of my choices, but the more I think about it the happier I get, just don't like the idea of now wash basin and 8 people to one bathroom which may not have a shower!! Im sure once Im there it will be fine.

    Im studying Media and Commnication studies by the way!!

    falk-egg is ok, its got a great social scene as you are all in small groups of srudents. the blocks are (or at least used to be) single sex, and on the whole are a little shabby, could do with a little renovation, compared to the other halls on campus. There is a large games room, and you are in quite a quiet area of campus.

    It doesn't suit everyone, but Im sure you'll learn to love it!

    Me too I put down telford thinking that most people would want catered and expecting to be sent there (with an en-suite) but i was told that it is where all the gap year, differed entry places are sent. But I am happy to be in faraday, sounds good. To be honest I reckon where-ever anyone ends up we are going to have an awesome time!

    Just stayed in Falk-Egg last night for my re-take. THe rooms are basic, Nothing special, each block has 8(well the one i was in had) people in it, 3 on the bottom floor as well as bathrroom, middle floor kitchen and 2 rooms, top floor 3 rooms and bathroom/shower. Everything is very close together, so its probably very sociable within your quad.

    Exactly,
    People who are well up for the university lifestyle learn to make do with what they've got. Wherever you live you'll make lots of new friends and have a great laugh. It will be one of the best years of your life.
    At the end of the day it's just a room where, if you really want, all you need to go there to do is sleep, and if you're lucky in freshers week maybe you won't sleep in your own room much anyway!

    thank you, well said. i was there last year, as i've already said, and tbh, it's awesome, and you will learn to love it, as long as you're not fussy. Also, i'll see many of you going into falk-egg in freshers week as i'm a freshers helper next year, if anyone has any questions, please feel free to add me to msn...

    haha!! i know that feeling well. I put telford first last year, and ended in falk-egg, i was a bit iffy to start off with, but i didn't really care, as it turns out, i couldn'tve been happier.
