Hey, I'm coming to Wadham in 2008 for PPE! It's going to be awesome.

OK, hmm... questions questions... well, one thing that struck me at interview was how immensely HUUGE my room was. It was on Staircase 18, I think- one of the new ones, anyway. Are all the rooms of comparable size and niceness? Or are there some really nasty ones that go out to First Years etc?

I can't think of much else that's of any value whatsoever now, so I will request some kind of amusing Wadham-related anecdote in lieu of more questions and then hit the post button.

Haha, thanks for the advice! Sharing definitely sounds like an awesome idea for first year- having a partner in crime built in with the accommodation would definitely be fun. Still, it's not as if I don't have a looong time to think about it.

Charlotte add me to the list, it's my duty as an SU officer to help explain about amenities...

In my opinion, although the rooms at the back of college are up to date and modern, they just don't have the character of the shared rooms on the front quad. If you do opt for shared, you'll get a suite either on the front quad ruled from staircase 7, or in the back quad party house that is staircase 9. Besides, you only have to share a living room, you get a separate bedroom as well!

Yeah, there's always that feeling when you cross a milestone like 1000 posts- a mix between pride at what you've achieved, and shame in er... what you achieved? :p:

Not the first time I've managed it on forums!

Just thought I'd say playing an instrument is fine for a shared room, a fair few do, and the person in my room last year was in a pretty heavy rock band.
It sucks if you have a really old and decrepid law tutor in the room opposite yours, hes a well mint bloke but he tells me to shut up quite often... im living in the practise room with coe this term i think!!

what times are we allowed in on thursday, i swear i have a distinct lack of information on this! is it just me being my usual disorganised self or was i not told about vac residence and term dates etc! im gonna have stern words with the domestic otherwise! i know where she lives(well i know where her office in college is...)! i long for the days of letters from school which contained all necessary information which i could pass on to mother so she could tell me when and where im supposed to be... speaking of which there will be an opening for a PA next term if any one wants it! very little pay but good healthcare benefits!

I live on staircase 22. It does NOT smell funny, and we have things like modern plumbing and a kitchen. And nobody cares if you do things like play bass guitars loudly at 2am (like my neighbour). And no elderly dons live here. The rooms are all funny shapes, as if the architects just sort of played with some lego then scaled it up to full size. All in all, I quite like it, despite the oddities.

I would agree with Charlotte that if you want a double room it is a bad idea to mention an interest in, say, death metal. Especially if you are female.

You're unlikely to get a shared room if you put on the accom survey that you play an instrument or if your musical tastes are, say, heavy metal (I know of two people - Dom and Pete can guess who at least one of them is - who didn't get shared rooms because of the music they said they liked).
That's discrimination! What about the Wadham's equality policy?

I think it's more to do with matching people who are unlikely to violently murder one another :p:
heyyy now that's a stereotype, it's not like if you listen to metal you'll set up a black mass in your room
Metal fans are a minority and wadham should protect them :p:

I meant it generally - if you tidy compulsively and get an uber-messy room mate, or if you like eight hours uninterupted sleep a night and have a room mate who needs music on while they pull an all-nighter, it could be pretty fraught. But people seem to get along pretty well.
Yea like fraiser's roommate is well harsh, he's disgusting and leaves dirty stuff everywhere... id hate to live with him...!

wait... thats popa dom...

wait... im living with him next year...??:confused:

hi guys, Ive got an offer to read Law at Wadham in 2007. Just a quick question about the food - i quite liked it during the interview period but were they just showing off to prospective students, and in fact its not so great?!! Or is it generally good all year round?

Also, are there any current Wadham lawyers on studentroom?

Cheers.
