It's not where you stay, it's what you make of it personally and what you do that counts. You can meet people anywhere and tbh I think someone just said that about Lakeside and it caught on. I was there in 1st year and didn't miss out on any social stuff or fun.

I think it's worth it. I've got one again next year.

Depends who you're with but overall I'd say it's a bit more chilled than standard.

Depends on your reasons for having one. For me, it's completely worth it.

Everyone came over to my flat 2 years ago. Guess it just depends on where your friends are.

£2,000? I hope you don't do maths or accounting; my accounting lecturer would have a heart attack with rounding like that!

It's not just for your own bathroom; you get a larger kitchen, more peace and quiet (bigger doors and thicker walls), larger rooms, weekly cleaning of the kitchen plus the ability to live in a more modern environment.

rofl.
Bigger doors? Definite consideration for me when I am picking somewhere to live.

Stafford gets the kitchen cleaned daily/bin taken out for you.

Larger kitchen in Lawrence is debatable (although can you live in Lawrence this year?)

Wall thickness was no problem in Stafford.

Okay I was exaggerating, it's only £1,200. But it's still a lot of money for a private bathroom, a slightly bigger room, a slightly nicer kitchen and a slightly more modern environment. Think of all the fun you could have with that cash!

Understatement of the century. Comparing the quality and modernity of Lakeside and the towers is like comparing a Bentley Continental GT with a Trabant 601 . . .

Most of the comparisons with Lakeside and the Towers is based on the fact by paying the £1,200 a year extra, we must be rich c*nts who don't know how to enjoy themselves. Personally, I'd rather be called a snob than have to share a shower for a year. Sharing bathrooms in hotels died out years ago, so it is a bit of an anachronism that it still happens at Aston. Each to their own though!

Depends on the person really. Personally I have both sleep and health problems so Lakeside is the better choice for me. Would give anything to not care where I sleep and about bathrooms.

Same reasons why I want/need an ensuite. Standard just wouldn't have worked at all for me :/
