    This should all be on TSR WIki: http://thestudentroom.co.uk/wiki/Universities

    (pictures and all)
    Yeah it should would their be away to merge my thread with the pic thread as their pretty much the same thing?
    It would be easier for prospective students. That way someone who has alot of time on their hands can refer to this thread and put it in Wiki.

    What Uni your at: Teesside

    Whats the name of your hall: Parkside flats

    How much it costs per week: £55

    Why is it so good/bad: its big, theres room for all my junk (which is alot) the bed is SOOOOOOO comfy... unlike my bed at home... and its nice and warm when you come in from the cold. unfortunatly we dont have a sofa so we have to sit on hard chairs in the kitchen to talk and the doors are a bizzare colour... we call it prison pink... coz its not brown or pink or purple or any colour... have a view of the park! thats nice... especially for middlesbrough. would be nicer if everything wasnt funny colours... and we had a sofa

    Well probably not, I can't quite remember! But I recall it being pretty high. It's the most expensive at Kent.

    Put it this way: Exeter is a very posh university. The poshest, newest catered halls at Exeter (with double bed, ensuite, balcony and all meals provided) is £130 per week. If you're genuinely paying £120 per week for self-catered accomodation, you're being ripped off spectacularly.

    What Uni your at: Oxford

    How much it costs per week: ~£100

    Why is it so good/bad: Fairytale room - in an 18thC building, with huge huge windows on 2 sides, complete with window seats; double height ceiling - so makes it feel even bigger; wooden panelling & quirky double doored entrance & shared 'vestibule'; pretty fireplace - handy for fairy lights; oodles of furniture - lounging on sofa feels so much more productive than being in bed & the most amazing views of a deer park/woodland or spires of oxford & incredibly thick walls - no disturbances.
    + location is fab - plenty of friends in the same building & near the centre of town.

    Out of 10 how bad is it: 2 - i :love: my room! shame about the bizaare showers though & it is a workout climbing the stairs..

    (paid for by my loan.. good thing our terms are short! :eek: )
