    Hey everyone!
    Paid my accomodation deposit for McMillan Flat Share last week, SO excited but nervous but excited!

    What's everyone taking with them as I'm unsure what I need to take and what not to take! haha! :P

    Thanks, George

    I'm paying mine tomorrow (Friday).

    I'm definitely taking tv, computer, games consoles. Don't need any furniture! Do need a wireless router though if you want to be wireless in your room.

    One tip is make sure you pack one set of crockery / cutlery / kettle separately for quick access when you move in.

    Don't bother bringing food / drink as Sainsburys is right next to the entrance to McMillan. Though, saying that, everybody else might think the same and the shelves of Sainsburys are emptied!

    Do you know which block you're in yet?

    Hey you two, I have been offered accommodation in the McMillan Student Village as well, which I have accepted, I am just struggling on how to pay the deposit, I have followed the instructions as per the received email. When I log in to the portal and go to Accommodation Transactions, I type in 400 in the box and click add next to it but nothing happens, any ideas??

    Phone them up to pay, it's the fastest and most reliable form! It will appear on portal that you've paid over the phone and you'll get the confirmation email 15 minutes later! I wanna get room numbers so I can find who I'm sharing with!

    Congrats on getting a place!

    Oh I'm doing it as a direct (private) applicant rather than through my university so my arrangements are slightly different I'm in one of the double studios

    I guess that's how it works although, I might ring up a week before (blag it a bit, haha!) and tell them I've got family sending stuff over so I can find out my specific stuff!
    What you studying?!
    24 days! SO excited!

    !
    I lived there for my first year and I'm pretty sure they don't know what flat you will be in until you arrive and they just give you a key, I think it's randomly selected?!

    You could but there isn't much point as they are no longer in charge of it

    If you have applied for McMillan through your uni then they will tell you what to do.

    If you are like me and a private applicant you do it through CRM Students who are now responsible for running it http://www.crm-students.com/
