Nah I'm not at Queens, but it is a good college!

They have a legendary director of studies for compsci, the mathematical bridge, the versatile fitzpat hall, a nice bar (with conservatory type area). The downside is that there is quite a lot of shared sets (but not of the proper living room plus two bedroom type). However, all accom appears to be on their one site, and the anchor is just across the road. The centre of town is just along 'piss alley' and you get silly tourists all over the place looking at the bridge, but I'm sure they can be dealt with .
Their formal hall is quite nice, but surprisingly in the modern half rather than the old half.
Oh and I better say their bops rock, because a friend from school helps run them or something - not that I've been :rolleyes:

Alaric.

The bops at Queens' aren't very good - I was totally put off by an ent they had with two rooms, one tiny packed one and one enormous empty one. I haven't tried another one so it might have just been an off night, but it was expensive, had a very badly organised cloakroom and finished too goddam early. Oh, and they had bouncers everywhere - what the hell was that all about?!?!

Per college, bops happen every week or so whilst ents usually happen a few times a term. College bars are full most days of the week, most weeks of full term.
