    I haven't applied for accommodation yet, just trying to narrow down the list.

    Have you? If so, where did you apply and where?

    Oh lol, I misread it. I though you said that you had been to all three.

    Which do you prefer??

    Any reason for the order or was it just based on price??

    Rosebery's apparently one of the more 'social' halls from what I've read, plus the pictures of the rooms looked nicer. Didn't like passfield so much but have that as third because its still the contract length I wanted...

    I've gone for Passfield then Rosebury second, I picked Passfield above Rosebury just because of the distance. I went for both because I've heard they're social halls (as well as Carr Saunders, but can't remember why I didn't add that to my list).

    Yeah, I went for 1)Passfield, 2)Roseberry and then 3)Carr-Saunders. I went for the northern cluster halls on the basis of location mainly. Passfield seems to be in a nice area (bloomsbury) + northern cluster halls all seem social from what I've heard.

    I'm not applying to Carr or Passfield but Rosebery is my first choice (the other two being High Holborn and Bankside House). I chose Rosebery first because I think the location looks great, seems to be a quiet residential area with lots of trees and parks, and that Exmouth Market area looks really nice. I'm not too bothered about the rooms because as far as I can tell, they're all pretty much the same, but the ones at Rosebery seem nicer than some of the others. The social life is supposed to be better too.

    Social life is amazing, definitely the best hall at LSE. I loved it so much I'm staying here next year cos I didn't want to move out of halls, I'm on the committee as social secretary so I organise freshers/club nights/west end trips and stuff like that.
    Food is decent. You choose either a meat, fish or vegetarian main course and 2 sides (rice, potatoes, fries, carrots, beans, peas, sweetcorn, broccoli etc. there is always 2 carbs and 2 veg choices) There are bread rolls and a salad bar. And you also get to choose either the hot dessert, cake, yoghurt or fruit!

    nope no regrets apart from not taking my cutlery out of the kitchen! And not doing enough work...

    Thank you for the feedback. Does the time you apply effect your chances of receiving your first choice?

    Hi, how accurate is this description (below) of Passfield? Someone posted it in another thread and I was wondering if you agree with it

    (Original post by greasymonkey93)
    I am a passfield resdient 2012/2013.

    Do not be deceived by the beautiful georgian building. Inside it it a sh** hole. Currently there are mice infestation everywhere, first spotted in the canteen - a dead mice - we all joked about having a passfield pet. But soon found out there some in peoples rooms in the kitchen etc. They said something is being done but I cannot see any progress and still get a visit from the little monsters. There had also been a flooding in the main building with toilet waste dripping from the 3rd floor to the basement - it was disgusting and made the halls smell. to this day nothing had been done to clean the carpet> The sewage remnants are still visible on the light green/grey carpets the have in the passage ways. Sometimes there is no hot water and reception just throw out the excuse it is an old building with a old heating system.

    The problems with passfield is endless- do not even get me started on the evening meals - uugggghhhh. The main chef craig - if you ever meet him- has no social skills whatsoever. Everyone hates him! Mind you, everyone else working in the canteen halls are as good as gold.
