    Anyone knows what is the difference between the quality of the single rooms?

    I am given these options and have no idea what to choose:

    Single room price band A- £144.55
    Single room price band B- £136.15
    Single room price band C- £124.25
    Single room price band D- £117.25
    Hey,
    I don't know officially, but if I go by how things have been done the past two years... the Myddleton wing is more expensive, and the basement of Rosebery wing is the least expensive. I think there's a slight price differential within the other floors in the Rosebery wing due to better furniture in some. Hope that helps!

    Hi, anyone interested in swapping with me? I have a single room at the International Hall (catered meals, storage provided, shared bathroom with only 3 other residents). It's at 24.50pounds per night. I'd rather a LSE hall. Do let me know if you're interested!


    Cheers!

    I know someone with a CS shared but I'm guessing you want a single. Anyway if you change your mind or can't find a single do let me know if you're interested

    Hi,

    Not sure if I fully understand your question, however £88.50 is a twin room. The twin rooms are double the size of single rooms. All single rooms are roughly the same size, although basement rooms seem to have higher ceilings.

    For more detail on why there are price differentials in single rooms, scroll up a few posts earlier in this thread or take a look at the facebook page. Feel free to ask any further questions that haven't already been covered

    Hey, I'd be interested in a CS shared (I have a Passfield shared). Is the person you know a girl and are they still up for swapping?

    To anyone else reading this, I'd also swap for anything in Rosebery or Carr-Saunders.

    Hey, does anyone have any information on this '£15 per week which can be spent in the Rosebery Restaurant on a "use it or loose it basis"??
    When it says included in your fees, does this mean in the price of the room e.g £117 for Band D room and meal ticked or does it mean that £15 will be added to the £117 every week and taken out at the same time?
    I hope that makes sense!
    Thanks

    I'm hoping it's the first and presuming that's what it is..Especially as the prices of the rooms have all been bumped up considerably. My best bet is £117 incl. £15 allowance. You confirmed your place? I've just paid the deposit..can't wait to move in!

    Hey Guys,

    Good Q. Your rent includes the food allowance and it is on a "use it or lose it" basis. (So basically, stock up on non-perishables if you still have money left over at the end of the week. The canteen doesn't just sell cooked meals, you can also get snacks.)

    Hope that helps!

    It looks like it is included thank God! It's a pretty good deal I think, basically four evening meals a week sorted! Yeah, I paid mine yesterday, didn't want to leave it too last minute! Just hoping now I get the band I specified! I can't wait either (apart from actually packing), really looking forward to Freshers

    I have been offered a space in a shared room at Rosebery. I would like to swap it for my own single room at Rosebery, Carr-Saunders, Sidney Webb, or even Bankside, Butler's or Lilian Knowles.

    Please message me soon!

    There's a large freezer and a grill on each floor of the Rosebery Wing. As to the specifics of the difference between a grill and oven, have a flick through some of the earlier pages of this thread. Let me know if there's anything you'd like me to expand on.

    Read your post on the previous page.

    So it's fine to use for frozen vegetables, chicken etc?
