    Hey, I'm doing the Art Foundation at loughborough, applied for my accommodation this morning and got en-suite at cayley. Anyone else going there or does anyone know much about it?
    Thanks
    Hey, i've just finished my first year and am the media rep for cayley. It is such a good hall with an amazing atmosphere and you'll love it. If you have any questions just send me a pm. I'm going to update the website with some pictures of the rooms so you can get a better look. Also have a look around on some youtube videos and search cayley hall.

    The freshers this year will be nurses and doctors themed and i will also put on the website the line-up for the freshers fortnight when it all gets confirmed.

    It's definately the friendliest hall, most accepting, the most caring and the most fun! They also have lots going on that doesn't just involved alcohol and crazy antics I'm coming back next year I liked it so much! What course are you doing? x

    Did everyone get those scholarship applications? i mean, if you do a science maths or engineering course. it seems like they give a lot of preference to people from disadvantaged backgrounds or if your parents didnt go to university. does this mean i wont be in with a shot even if i already have the grades?

    Very very unlikely that Bill Mo will have any spaces at all.

    Basically you have the Tues/Weds/Thurs/Fri/Sat/Sun to party without lectures (so the lucky ones get to move in on the Tuesday as they get two more days than those who move in on Thursday) then proper lectures do actually kick in on the Monday (but with freshers week well on its way throughout this week) - so you learn quickly to get used to late nights with early starts (or end up missing all your introductory lectures - which also involves picking modules),

    I thought the modules were compulsory??? Or can you choose extra modules??

    so do you only have lectures on the mondays for two weeks? or is it throughout the whole week?

    And one thing i've been wondering. for robert baekwell, do you get an actual key to lock your room or a key card? and is it easy to lock yourself out of your room if you walk out, shut the door and leave your key inside?

    or do you have to lock it, rather than it doing it automatically?

    It's an actual key, not a card. You get one key for your room and another for the main door to your flat. You can't lock yourself out of your room by leaving the key inside, but you can with the front door to the flat.

    I thought was just a monday for 2 weeks cos thats what it said on some rig-rutt freshers thing last year, but the guy above said there are lectures to pick modules so i dunno. Ill ask my brother cos hes doing aero-eng there

    And to lock door, you have lock the door from the outside so theres no way to lock yourself in

    and i think bakewell has a keycard but im not 100%

    I'm not aware of any hall that uses a card instead of a key. Some use your student ID card to get into your block, but your flat and room still use actual keys, unless they've changed it in the last year but given how new the hall is I really doubt that.

    Don't know how it works in Bill Mo.

    O ok. I find that weird cos i thought only old buildings at uni have keys and everywhere else uses a card (its like that at others ive been to)

    And guess ill have to wait until i get there to find out.

    But do you know when we get told whereabouts we'll be living? Like do we get an email saying its in F block or do we only find out on the day?
