    I have been offered international Hall.

    If you would like to swap for the above, simply post what you have been allocated, and if it is mutually beneficial, let's swap!

    Many thanks guys!

    I would advise you to think carefully before swapping. I was in international hall for 1st yr & loved it. You're with other uni's, it's incredibly social, you're close to the best student night clubs.
    I was at Guys which is a bit of a trek but so worth it.

    The idea of IH has actually grown on me considerably, but today I found out I've actually been allocated Hughes Parry. Is that as good?

    Most definitely. HP is just around the corner. It's on the same road as all the other intercollegiate halls like commonwealth & Connaught.

    Self catered isn't that bad either! I was quite happy not having to cook really lol. HP is traditionally the party hall & is very sociable. You'll really like it

    Ah good. Thank you very much! I'll continue to pick your brain if I may :P

    How did you get to guys?

    Is there a safe cycle route?

    Cheers!

    I went on the tube which was painful! Piccadilly line from Russell sq up to kings cross (or walk to kings cross), change on to the northern line & down to London Bridge.
    I got the bus a few times too but I can't for the life of me remember which one. Maybe the 188? Not sure.

    Cycling - there should be very good cycle routes now since Boris Johnson. I don't know them for sure! A good way to do it would be to google map (if you don't live in London already) your way from HP to guys!

    Let me know if you have any more qs

    So it's too far to walk? That commute sounds painful :/ But I shall keep those routes in mind.

    I shall do just that, thank you. Hopefully I'll be able to plot a safe cycle route to Guys. Cycling would save sooo much time! Thanks Potter

    It's quite far to walk unfortunately. It was a bit of a pain but the area that the halls are in (and the halls themselves) did make up for it.
    Yup cycling would! And there's a secure cycling area (in this rather big metal cage type thing) where you can store a bike at Guys. It's worth it because unfortunately London bridge has a fair few bike thefts. Well actually, probably most places in central do!

    They are right next door to each other (well around the corner!) I was in IH - would be happy to answer your questions/fears

    Edit: HP and IH are exactly the same apart from the fact they are around the corner from each other! Honestly that's it. Apart from the fact IH has a built in bar

    Hey, well now I've spoken to some students who went there for first year I feel a lot happier although I was apprehensive because of there being families and postgrads in there, didn't know whether it would have a good freshers vibe but they're in a different wing. Also I thought it was fairly strict but again after speaking to people it seems that it's all just the same wherever you go. What is your son studying??
