    Ill post some photo's up there of the rooms in a sec but i loved the place, the rooms are huge, the en-suites amazing, your about 10-20 mins walk away from the uni depending on how fast you walk (10 for those of you on uber caffeine). If your not a much of a walker, theres a bustop right outside where the 73, 30 and 214 (Camden) buses stop. 73 will take you straight to uni in 10 if theres no traffic. Kings Cross Thameslink and Kings Cross are at the bottom of the road aswell.

    Islington is just up the road which is full of nightlife, live music, pubs, clubs, the N9 centre which has alot of shops. A proper Sainsbury's supermarkets there too, and a Tesco Metro down the road instead.

    You're in flats of 8 sharing a kitchen which is generally fine, there's a porters lodge and alot of security doors for those of you who are safety concious and right next to the lodge there's a Laundry hut with washing machines (2 pounds wash, 40 mins, 1 pound another 40 in the dryer).

    Feel free to ask any questions

    EDIT: Some pics of my old place, sorry they're a bit messy xD You can't see everything but you get the idea





    P.S. Thats my chair, no, you can't have it

    Thanks for your reply I have a few questions about the house.
    - About transportation. Is it dangerous to back to the house late each night ?
    - Which things are provided in the room ? (bed,shelf or nothing :rolleyes: )
    - Any other pics (if you have some time )
    Thanks a lot !!!

    - While Pentonville Road and Kings Cross have had a bad reputation, its fine to be honest nowadays (its not perfect, but its not anywhere near like walking along Camden Highstreet on a friday night xD). I've done it plenty of times personally without feeling any form of threat.

    - You get the bed (single) the shelf you can see in the photo on the wall, and a chair. The desk is all along one side of the wall and has 3 drawers on it. All the other junk i brought myself

    -I'll have a looksie.

    When did you hear from the accommodation office? I haven't heard anything yet. What did you apply for on the form? I applied for en suite...how likely is it that I'd get it? thanks.

    So there was no wardrobe? Where did you keep your clothes?

    -I heard from the accomodation office pretty much a week or so after results, maybe a bit more (2 weeks?). I cant actually remember when i applied but it was pretty much as soon as i got the form. Plus if you specifically stated you wanted an en suite you will probably get one unless you are one of the unlucky number that doesnt get what they want.

    -Theres a wardrobe like thing built into the wall, it has a rack and a large shelf. Its quite ample for a guy, girls beware though ^^
