Hi everyone just got my accomodation pack through today and Im staying in Cwrt Mawr; but fairly worried about it as i know very little about what this hall's like. Does anyone know what the communial areas in the flats are like and what facilities the kitchen has? also what are the bathrooms like, is it one bathroom i.e one toilet, one shower etc per flat or are their lots of them?

Thanks

Seen as Cwrt Mawr flats hold about 10 people, I imagine there'll be multiple bathrooms in each flat. The kitchens are huge, and have everything you need (it is a self-catrered hall after all). I'll tell you for definate on Saturday as I am staying in Cwrt Mawr when I do my resits.

Well from what i remember it has the corridors split in two with a big shared kitchen, it has a firedoor halfway between so it splits it sort of. Two toilets on each side, a shower (or two) but dont quote me on this.
Some blocks are not two sided they have just one side but these generally have like 6 people in them

I was about to say there's two styles with the Cwrt Mawr blocks, some have the kitchens at the end of the corridor, where as other have them in the middle. I've only ever visited one Cwrt Mawr block, which had an end kitchen, but can't really remember much as I'd had a drink or two...

I thought all CM flats had the kitchen in the middle (well the ones that I usually walk past on the way to the Co-op do anyway)

Not on the way to the coop, if you walked towards the back carpark at the very end round hte back of hte drama block.

I think it was just refurbished as most of the other blocks were last year. (i think anyway) So the layout should stay the same
And wasnt that block mostly for non-fresher students?

Yes, the three little ones just before the only one which doesnt face the sea (if you know what I mean, I think that one is block K). I'm in block H (the middle one of the three), and I can confirm that the kitchen is at the end, and it's a good size, with a toaster, cooker, microwave, kettle, a large freezer and a large fridge.

There are also 2 loos and 2 showers, all of which to serve 6 people. The flat is arranged corridor style (similar to Penbryn only a lot cleaner and carpeted!) with the rooms on one side and the loos/showers/kitchen on the other.

I'll post some pics up when I get back from Aber, I can't get the internet in my room *cries* andn the stupid Stunet thingy won't let me in!

Yes.

And it's not that close to the bar. (about 50 paces :p:)
