How you all finding it here?
i moved all the way from london to come here, and its pretty cool.
Clubbing scene is quite good aswell.
More about University of Huddersfield
Who is gonna be there?
Holla back at me, i live in the A block.
Want to hear from some fellow residents
how you doin? hows your tonsilitus, i suppose u got it from all the scream and shouting at the clubs coz thats what happened to me hehe
Firth point, thats not far from aspley hall. We might be having a house party sometime soon, so who is up for it? free drinks and good music!
Been at uni 2 weeks now and everything seems good so far, im doing Computer Games Programming (anyone on the course or new media give me a shout). Im living down the road from the uni on Manchester road, private student flats.. bit of a mistake as no action when your away from halls i guess but since im living with my missus with my own kitchen etc it evens it out a little i guess.
Hope everyone is having a good time ! Wheres everyone drinking at ?, seems like Revolution is the favourite from what iv seen ?.
hows it going?
Seems like everyone is having a fab time at uni, which is a good thing. Working very hard i hope lmao
i see that your looking for places where you can get a few drinks there are quite a few good places to grab a few pints or a few bottles of WKD.
There is the Tokyo Night Club, Shout, Bar Code, Cotton Factory, The Camel Club, Visage, Billie Rox, Revoloution, Livingstones etc. these are ones i have personally been to for a drink or two and thought that they were quite alright.
Check this link out for more info on nights out in town:
take it easy and hope the info helps
Cotton Factory was good too, nice beer, place to go for quiet drink before clubs.
Visage has nice food before the bar before the club .
Revoloution is great for vodka fans, terrible larger (think i got bottom of barrell).
The above 4 would be my reccomendations to anyone new to Huddersfield and hasnt been out yet . Cheers for the site D-Unit ill check it out.
week 3 i think it is now, and how are people settling in?
There is a house party happening at Aspley Hall Block A flat 3 from 7pm onwards with free booze and top music. whos up for it? let me know
hope all are having a boozalicious time hahaha (sorry i know that was stupid but i couldnt help it )
P.S dont forget to let me know if anyones up for some free booze at my house party
Firstly, sorry for intruding on your thread
On to business - now that you are all at Huddersfield, whats the Uni actually like? Whats the digs like? The sports facilities? The teaching? Everything else?
As you can guess, I am thinking of applying (I know, I shouldnt be thinking, the form should be in ) to study either Mechanical or Automotive Engineering.
Cheers in advance
I sent an email to the Engineering department last night about both Mechanical and Automotive Engineering (asking if they would take me) and got a reply this morning saying they would - without my Year 14 courses, so I am sitting in 6th-form for another year when I could be at Uni (sod's flaming law!)
I dont like the sound of being safer in Smoggieland (Middlesbrough), but I am happy I can take care of myself (*manical laughter*). I dont mind having no phone signal - got MSN and a web-cam for that
If you see a very lost-looking lad, probably swearing in Geordie at himself for getting lost yet again, please be nice
I had a good mosy around and the Uni looks brilliant! I cant put it into words, but it just feels like the place for me. I must have took some of the north easter weather down with me like, because it started raining when I was having a look at the canal (I am a fisherman, so you know where to find me).
Didnt get to the talk about Mech/Auto Eng though because of a talk about the halls - I didnt get to go round them, and where I will be living is slightly more important than the course for me.
Couple of questions for you all:
1) Do you get asked to go for an interview or another open-day, or does it depend on the course or something?
2) Does anyone know anything about some halls called Aspley Hall? Anyone there or know anyone there? If aye, whats it like?
Sorry i cant be of more help. I can tell you im having a really good time here though, if that helps to cement your decision to come to Hudds a bit more.
Have a good life
