BATESON IS A PRISON.
tiny rooms, tiny desk, shared bathroom.
unlike what has been said you are not in the middle of everything.. that would be a definition of James Watson.
the only time you pick up post from bateson is if it is delivered by courier i.e. Parcel force, City link etc. or royal mail special delivery (if you are lucky) anything sent royal mail that is bigger than a normal envvelope will go to the post office which is in town.
and again emphisis on the teeny tiny rooms. i hated the place.
sorry to be so down on you (you will have a great time no doubt) but im telling it like it is.
