    Hey,
    just today I got my placement at Pooley and I'm 99% accepting it. I'm an international student from Italy so on-campus accomodation is a must for me.
    However, I was wondering, are there any of you who are staying at Pooley House? Let's get it started.

    P.S. Is it just me or do you also agree that the showers are pretty depressing?

    I am in Pooley House as well, I paid my deposit earlier today.
    All the showers I looked at were like that, but I'm still happy to have my own and not be sharing it. Some TLC and they will be fine, I am sure.
    I'm studying Astrophysics and I am so excited, I am still giddy that I got in!

    Hi! I'm also staying in Pooley House- I'm in 28I I think I'm really nervous about moving in so it'll be nice to know of some people in the same place before we go! In regards to the showers, to be honest, I'm just happy to have my own, I couldn't bear the thought of sharing a bathroom with seven strangers. I think it would have been ok eventually, but at the beginning it would have been so strange.

    I am in 41A! My question is, in which orders are the room? Is there a flat letter and a room number or viceversa? Sorry, might sound stupid, but I'm just wondering.

    Me too. I'm from far away so all this is very much exciting. I read my personal statement again today after some months and it seemed like so long ago when we were all struggling with applications and similar crap.

    No that doesn't sound stupid at all, I was super confused too! From what I've read there's two flats on each floor, so there would also be flat 40 or 42 on your floor with you and then there's however many rooms to each flat or kitchen or whatever, given that mine is 28I I'd imagine there's 9?

    You are in the center of the fresher universe.

    PS. Nobody knows anything about the layout, really.

    I'm in Pooley House too! I'm in flat 43. I'm curious about the layout of the building... I think I read somewhere that there are 8 floors. I'm just relieved that I got en-suite!

    Hi guys!
    I am In 44C, Having looked at the building, and having nothing better to do I think I have worked out a general layout. The block is split into 3 blocks, each with its own lift, there are 8 floors and 2 flats to each floor in each block. there are 48 flats in total. I reckon then the the higher the number, the higher the floor but It could be that the fat numbers go up to the top of the first block and then start again at the next block.
