    although there is quite a number of people who are either at or almost at portsmouth, i dont think a sub-forum would be made.

    I'll have to make sure I get to the right computer first then!

    Any clues on which parts of town we should stay out of? As in those areas which aren't "student-friendly"?

    Erm only place i keep well away from is somers town, think thats about really. and the usual not being on my own at night when it gets dark. The annoying one is having a lecture till 9 then finding urself stood at the bus stop on ur own, that bothers me but u all live close so ull be fine!

    Most of portsmouth is student friendly, you can tell the difference to the place when people move back for the start of the year, becomes a different place

    i've wondered this for a while now...

    You should still have your place in halls, if in doubt just call them up on results day. they are always really helpful when i call up wanting something!

    I couldnt get to my student loan whilst at uni! If you happen to be down here before the start of term, ask the nice people at ur halls to see if you can go see ur room, was really useful in knowing what things to take and leave behind, and remembering those really useful things id totally forgotten about!!
