I have been placed by the winter pool into Homerton and do not have the foggiest about what the place is like or what the people will be like.

Would appreciate some information from fellow Homertonians or anyone who is going there themselves.

P.S. Does anyone know what type of sports facilities and reputation they have.

P.P.S. Don't paste links to the official website. Been there, done that and got the T-Shirt.

Its a cool place in geenral but you might not know but the college only this year has joined Cambridge fully (it was part mandate last year) and it now offers most of the mainstream academic Tripos'.

The grounds are lovely (not quite Trinity) but the accomadation is more than adequate.

P.S. I'm on the Teaching Training as an undergraduate.


P.P.S Most of the women are alright but unless you got whacked with the ugly stick, fell out of the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down there ain't much choice.

Hi, hopefully if i get the grades im heading to homerton in sep. Homerton is a little way out but theres a bus route directly outside the college which goes into town centre - its really not too far. Im doing the nat sci tripos and while there is a majority of women at homerton theres loads of mixing between colleges during lectures etc. The grounds and accomodation at homerton are really nice, theres a lot of en-suite facilities etc. And of the staff i met, they were all really friendly - i hope you enjoy it there - fingers crossed for results day

I am hopefully starting at Trinity in September, and am quite please with its.... euhm.... central location. The grounds are sooo beautiful; I just can't wait to start. But my A-levels aren't going terribly well and I haven't had any time to prepare for STEP.

If your A-levs aren't going terribly well and you have no time to prepare for STEP, what makes you so sure you'll be starting there at all?

Thanks,

my second choice is Bath (ABB) and I won't be too dissapointed if I don't get to go to Cambridge because Bath do a year in Europe, which I really want to do.

I'm in the same situation i feel,
I've got a place to study maths at Newnham College, (all ladies) and im very excited, but after having exams every day for 2 weeks, i dont feel i've been able to prepare adequately for Step 2 tomorrow. I've got all my fingers and toes crossed though, and hoping for some nice (easy) questions!
good luck!

There's also a free bus that runs from homerton straight to lectures(history, english, economics etc ), my friend's at homerton, he has an amazing room, well, nicer than the ones at trinity (1st year wolfson) at least... but if you can get a top 1st or a subject prize, u get to live on the proper side of trinity great court! otherwise.... wolfson... with a permanently broken lift!
