    Hello there you lucky lucky people <--- this only applies if you have got into elvyn

    Anyway, how are you guys? If you dont know I am the Elvyn Richards Hall chair and I thought I would start this thread so the people in Elvyn can chat etc.

    Freshers week in Elvyn has finally been fully sorted so you guys can have the time of your life from the 28th. And trust me, you will!

    So if you want to ask me anything feel free to!

    (also my msn is [email protected])

    Cheers,

    Matt.

    i would put some photos up so you can see what all the fuss is about but nowhere to host em!

    Not long to go! Make sure you bring a doorstop... really is useful.

    well i had a kool kube fridge (big guiness one) and nothing was said, i think a rule was changed so they were allowed but dont take my word yet, ill give the warden a call on monday n comfirm...

    with posters etc you are generally ok with them, it really depends on your cleaners and whether they are nice or not (had the most amazing cleaner last year i asked her to move corridors with me (which made her cry)).

    My room got checked once, which was by a uni official and it was in a complete mess, you could hardly see the floor! (you will get used to it if you ever come to my room!)

    but i wouldnt worry the rules arent too strict

    well, last year we had a turnstile type system, where you swipe your NUS card and then you're in. Now however you'll have a chip n pin kinda card (i think) and there will be a till of some kind and you just walk through n show the card. The till is for people who arent in Elvyn and wish to buy food. Therefore if they are serving people out of the hall too then the standard of food should be better.
