Hiya!
Just seen your post whilst doing some research myself about the place, basically it's brand new which is lush, but it's also next to Emily Bowes court (another student halls which my friends live in) which is really lovely. The area is alright and it's literally behind a tube station and bus station (god send!.) I'm pretty sure from when I've been there's a supermarket across the road or at least there is a retail park with i think Argos etc. Then there's tottenham hale hightstreet which apparently isn't the best but i'm sure is actually worth an explore!
Which room have you applied to stay in? Where are you coming from?
Just hit me up on Facebook if you want to know anything else that i might be able to answer about London or whatever. I think i'm going to book my room in the next few days. Seems too good an option not to!

I booked for emily bowes, which is just in front of North lodge. when ivisited it it seemed really nice. They were building a tesco express on the ground floor, and there was this huge shopping mall, with a lot of stores and fast foods just in front of it.

I'm going to look on Tuesday too! I've already been to Emily Bowes but I just want to check out the difference in rooms because I'm contemplating upgrading. More pictures would definitely be good but as i've mentioned i've had the advantage of friends living there so I have seen it already. I'm actually going into my second year, I'd originally arranged to live with my friend and then she let me down and everyone else we knew had already sorted out where they were living which was a bit of a bummer, however I don't mind halls because it's a great way to meet new people! I guess you aren't coming from too far away from London but it's a great change, I'm actually from near Manchester/Lancashire so i'm far from local I think i'm in B in 301 or something, can't really remember, unless I do upgrade and then that may change I'm not sure! I'm at London College of Fashion at the moment, which uni are you hoping to go to? x

What times your viewing? I'm hardly local but still not quite as far as you they said the only difference between the basic and classic in north lodge was whether you share with five or ten people, don't know if the rooms are much different, and I'm hopefully going to London met what's it like being a student in London?

My viewing is at two I think, what about yours? Well I was hoping that the classic and basic rooms would be the same size but the classic would have a double bed and the basic a 3/4 which means more floor space which i kind of need in my course to do work so we'll see tomorrow I guess! Mine's currently a basic but the person on the phone put me in a flat on ten so that's cool. London met will be good fun Being a student in London is good, you can get everywhere and anywhere at all times of the day which I love so much. Price wise it isn't as bad as everyone says, if you go out in Mayfair obviously it'll cost you your arm, however if you go to say shoreditch or hoxton and these places drinks are about £4 which is the same kind of city centre prices you'd pay anywhere really. Then there's student nights every week and places like cheapskates where drinks are 99p so yeah it's good! Obviously it being London you can get anything you'd ever need to always close by. x

Hopefully Unites more fun, I was slightly worried that it won't be as social being private halls but London met doesn't own any of its own :/ aviation management, what about you? x

I didn't know London Met didn't have any of it's own! Isn't it close to London met too, so I suppose a lot of people will be from there? I'm doing Fashion Design and development which is really fun ! Did you like it when you went today? x

The guy who showed me round seemed pretty cool so probably Ive just looked at my online flatmates thing and I'm sharing with all second years looking to share with post-grads, do you reckon its worth asking to change to be with first years or doesn't it make much difference? x

Erm, postgrads are in a whole unsociable world of their own (trust me, i live with one) and second years if there's two of them it would suggest they know one another, so they might be really sociable or take the attitude that they don't need to meet anyone else, could go either way! You could always ask to change if you want, if you ring them they're really helpful and they'll give you choice so you could ask them to live with first years. I think my flats currently empty and is one of the one's that ten people so I could always give you that number if you do decide to change. I don't really know why a second year would chose to live with a postgrad unless they are like 22/23 already and just started university late or doing a second degree or something. Just ring them and ask if I was you x

ello everyone. went to see this place the other week (well emily bowes) but looked pretty good. think the area of Tottenham isn't great but as long as you don't go into the main road of Tottenham it should be fine. The accom is part of a student village so it's pretty safe!

I'm thinking of booking into flat 802, theres 3 second yrs there already so should be sweet. Anyone else living at/near this flat?

Would be good to meet people that are living here !
