Hey! Huddersfield is my insurance, but am probably going there because Leeds want an A in music, which gets lessoned every day!lol!
What do u think of it? Storthes hall looks top class- wish it was closer though! What are you studying? I am doing music, and Hudds has the niggest music department in the UK and lots excellent!

I'm gonna be studying Computer Games Programming. Don't worry I'm not a geek! :wink:

Storhtes Hall seemed ace and they are building a load more stufff there that'll be ready for September. They also have the bar place and loads of other stuff up there. I'm not too bothered by the distance as the buses are free and only takes 15 mins.

Just waiting for the accomadation forms to come through and then I will be ready to go! Hope to see ya there! :biggrin:

Well I need three C's to get on the course, and I found out the other day that I only 7 out of 90 in my Computing exam to get a C, and 31 out of 100 in Pure Maths 3 to get a C in Maths. Even if I fail my other 2 maths exams, in Phyics I am currently averaging a B and just need 102 out of a possible 160 from 2 physics exams to get a B in that. I also have an E in AS Level Further Maths even if I fail both my exams for that.

Basically, what I am saying is that I will see you in September! :smile: :cool: :biggrin:

You can stay at mine. The accomadation forms should be here some time this week. I take it you live nearby-ish and are coming from home?

dont worry, according to the latest government statistics, 64% of housholds in huddersfield had access to hot water, 44% to electricity and 12% to natural gas. So you should be able to actually have a warm bath in huddersfield, contary to popular belief.

Anyone else coming to Huddersfield?

Oh, on a side note, whilst queuingup to get on the Nemesis at Alton Towers yesterday, I noticed that people had signed ther names on the tops of the fence posts, and one of them said "Huddz Uni Boys".

Anyone got an accomadation thing yet? They said that they would arrive by the end of May....

Ryan, do you know you room and flat numbers and everything, or just that you have a place?

I sent off the form ages ago now, but still haven't got anything confirming which room I'll be in or anything...

I haven't sent my final form off yet. The final date it has to be in is 27 August 2004, so I am going to wait for my results and send it off then. That means you probably won't hear anything til after then.

What day does term start too? Is it 20th September?

just posted this on another guys thread but have added extra, may be of use..

induction week is best i been to and have been to five diff induction weeks posing as fresher student at friends uni's. anyway sorry. ur probs make friends within a day, and altho it seems daunting it can also be exciting, so just relax and enjoy it, remember theres no work to be done for a month so just enjoy it as much as you can! the most fun starts when u get to share a house with a donkey breeder, a metal guitaist, and three french speaking bohemian the halls are good but its not all over after the first year.

huddersfields uni is unselfishly cool without admitting it although student union small, town can either be a topman or topshop paradise with house clubs and trendy bars or a secret gonzo blues filled adventure with porn cinemas above carpet warehouses (on the way to birkby).
depending upon your taste uni offers good nights out, but for me its better to explore town and surrounding areas, great views (castle hill), great people (local bar owners-mad 5ft"er-the Swan); just up to you to explore,
music wise camel club has good northern soul nites to funky house to hiphop.
but with leeds nearby (cockpit) dont even worry about music venue.
check out everylittle nook and cranny for some excellent stuff, in the imperial arcade is an excellent vinyl shop, us hiphop clothing shop, and of course bong shop.

university has great resources, libarys extensive, and with leeds nearby, nothing to worry about, 24hr pc rooms saved my life.

just dont eat at caspian takeaway across from uni, unless you enjoy pooburgers.sorry.

just enjoy, dont judge anyone, 'work when you have to', and i bet you the huddersfield changes your life!!!
