    So in my university halls everything is all well and good apart from possibly the most important thing. The heating.
    The heating in my room is a Nobo self regulated panel. Once is the radiator reaches 21 degrees it turns off. Does anyone have any tricks or tips to allow the heater to work more efficiently or to stay on constant? I have a draft coming from my window so it would be better to be on constant... Thanks guys!

    21 is more than adequate

    The problem isn't the heating, it is the draft.
    Report the draft to the halls office ( by email )

    They should fix it

    IMHO universities are generally far too warm.
    Wait til you are in a grotty student rental and are freezing !

    First, sort out the draught problem.

    And then purchase an electrical heater if you're still struggling Halls rooms tend to not be big, so it should heat it up quickly.

    Check the hall rules

    Heaters are generally not allowed.
    Sometimes too high a loading on the circuits will trip the whole corridor
