    can anyone tell me what LMH is really like? Is there a LMH stereotype? And how involved are the students university wide??

    would appreciate any input...

    It's quite a way out by the Uni Parks, probable about 15-20 minutes from the city centre, so I haven't meet many students from there. Being quite a new college I don't think there's any strong stereotypes though, the student population is quite diverse so there isn't really one dominant group. The college seems fairly nice though, the grounds/gardens are quite impressive.

    Miles away - 20+ minute walk into the city centre. Reminds me of a school. Near the bottom of Norrington table. Laid back. Heavily involved in some areas (lots of Union presidents recently), not that active elsewhere. Overall I wouldn't recommend it - ask anyone there/at St Hughs; whilst it may seem quite nice to be away from the tourist-ridden centre it really is an inconvenience.

    I think quite a few of the younger college resemble schools in some way, that's one of the reasons I decided to go for one of the oldest colleges.

    Though be handy if you're a scientist though.

    You know in most other UK universities many students have to live far from campus/centre of town and would be thrilled to only have a 20 minute walk to get to lectures! It's no big deal in my opinion. I've been to a few events at LMH and I liked it. It seemed very friendly.

    Yeah well we really take for granted the centrality. After spending a year in halls with everything minutes from your doorstep, living out 10 mins from the centre was seen as such an inconvenience! Some of the Brookes accommodation smack bang in the middle of nowhere is not walking distance to anywhere else.

    I have an offer from LMH to read English for next year. One of the reasons that I decided to apply there was because it seemed to have a more laid back and less stuffy atmosphere than some of the older colleges. Also I think it has a beautiful location by the park and the river. For English it is only about a ten minute walk from the faculty which isn't too bad- i suppose it means I might get some exercise!!!

    I made an open application and was allocated LMH. Seemed a very nice place when I was there for interview, I felt immediately drawn to it.

    Oh, and today I got my results and made my offer, so I'll tell you what it's like in October!

    That's exactly what I thought - the second choice I was given was teddy hall and it seemed very small, dark and stuffy by comparison, I made my mind up as to which I preferred rather quickly!

    Lol, I don't know about that yet, I will tell you if I get in!!!! I hope they are though- i don't think they are as uptight about work as some colleges (hence their position near the bottom of the Norrington table) so they might be more willing to have fun rather than study study study...
