    Hey guys,


    So I got in to moonraker point which for some odd reason I had as my second choice. Now I'm beginning to regret it since its almost 200 a week and self catered.

    I've never really had to cook myself so I'm a bit worried about that. Other than that I don't care about having my personal bathroom anymore. Plus I don't want to be in a total concrete jungle. Since moonraker has no greenery anywhere.

    I have started considering intercollegiate halls because I want to be in a really social area where it is easier to make friends and where there are many international students like myself. People keep telling me that ill never have a traditional uni experience because ill be going from one building to another and there wont be gardens and stuff that traditional unis have. sooo i thought maybe Garden Halls would suffice? Which halls are closer to the strand campus and are they all in zone 1? Also how's the food? Which ones have the largest rooms? Is it A GOOD IDEA TO CHANGE TO AN INTERCOLLEGIATE FROM A UNI RESIDENCE? ...

    ANYONE LOOKING TO SWAP?

    Hey guys,


    So I got in to moonraker point which for some odd reason I had as my second choice. Now I'm beginning to regret it since its almost 200 a week and for a really small room.

    I can cook basic stuff like eggs I guess. I've never really had to cook myself so I'm a bit worried about that. Other than that I don't care about having my personal bathroom anymore. Plus I don't want to be in a total concrete jungle. Since moonraker has no greenery anywhere.

    I did Biomedical Science. What are you going to study?

    And the reason why I say intercollegiate is because it was brilliant. Bit far for me because I was based at Guys Campus, but worth it.
    It's catered so you meet everyone from other uni's.
    Very sociable and close to Piccadilly/Leicester sq.
    We had a bar in my halls. So many plus points! Haha
