    I have a standard room too Yeah, it does look nice in the pictures, though it's not as big as I thought it was (I had a quick look around the outside when I was there last). Still, it seems nice and it's not too expensive which is good! Are you doing an art subject then? I've just finished my art foundation too, but that was at a local college.
    I suppose the advantage in that is that it's harder to get lost (I'm terrible for that). Awesome, another art student. I'm doing textiles innovation, what about you? The advantage of Harry French (at least for art students) is that it's close to both the art school and the town centre. Not looking forward to sharing a bathroom with five other people though!

    (The link shows you which area is of the halls are in, and if you click on each of them it'll show you where they are on the campus map)

    The village area is I think where most of the halls are, which is roughly in the middle of campus. The east ones are separate, and some of them are just off campus (William Morris, Harry French and The Holt). I think David Collett is the only west one, and it's basically just to the west! It doesn't seem to matter where on campus you end up though because it's not that far to walk, so just choose somewhere you like

    Haha, you could probably get lost if you tried but I think it'll be okay I'm doing Fine Art. Yeah, there's apparently a short cut that leads to the art school which is useful, and it's really close to the shops. I think I might have to switch from Tesco to Sainsbury's though, which isn't ideal but oh well! And yeah I know, I'm not too keen on sharing either but hopefully we'll have nice, clean flatmates Apparently the standard rooms have 2 toilets and showers between them though (and some have a bath), which doesn't sound too bad because then at least we get a choice of which to use.

    Thank you muchly!! I had the problem where I couldnt select an area more than once, so I had to do one option west, one option east and one option village. I think ill call them tomorrow just to be sure its all right but to be honest I dont mind where I end up now I just want toget there!

    Can people use their mobile phones in Elvyn Richards? My network is Three which already has a bad reputation for bad network.
    Think I'll be affected?

    one of that questions options says you should close all the doors behind you, so that you can have a private dinner party. I had to stop myself from choosing that one purely because I found it so funny ahah

    I got mine on Tuesday, I think. Try logging into the accommodation bit and see if there's anything there, it might just be that the e-mail hasn't come through yet and you might still be able to do it

    Can I just say, some of the induction form questions were hilarious.

    E.g.
    Why is it important to keep the kitchen door closed?
    - To stop the flat smelling of cooking
    - To stop smoke or fire spreading
    - So I can have private dinner parties

    ...

    From the video - what causes a fire?
    - Taking a shower
    - A dirty grill pan
    - An untidy room
    What's more, the video didn't even work for me :P

    basically, the accommodation email says that you need to pay your room bond to secure your room, this should be done within 8 working days after your place has been confirmed. You can pay your room bond on this link:
    http://www.lboro.ac.uk/admin/financi...ne_payment.htm
    press on proceed and fill everything in and choose room bond 2012/2013

    after you have paid your room bond, go to the accommodation page, login and follow the steps for hall induction and arrival slot!

    good luck!
