here is a picture of a street in durham, the arrow points to the hogshead pub, so does that mean that one of the nearby buildings is the infamous moatside? (i heard it was opposite the hogshead)

:confused:

You see the brick arch, just to the right of the Hogshead pub with a small oval metal plaque?

That arch doubles as enterance to Moatside and deliveries for the pub. The oval plaque reads "Moatside Court"

I presume so, but don't know for certain.

It doesn't look quite as bad as I'd imagined it to be, after all the "complaints" about it. Or is this the good part? And of course; one shouldn't judge from the outside...

It looks worse on the other side of the arch, thats just the front for the civilised people in the street.

There is also Bailey Court. The rooms are slightly larger than moatside and you are in a quieter area, i.e. just off palace green rather than just behind a pub. They also have internet connections, but they may have installed them in moatside by now.

All this talk accomodation baffles me. I bet when the forms come out everyone is going to be frantically sharing their choices on the forums.

btw, what do the forms actually say? I know they've got lots of strange questions, but does anyone (*cough*dave*cough*) know what they actually say? Hehe.. I'm excited.

Its been a while since I filled one in, but for a start they are college specific.

As the colleges all provide food, and have no real self-catering options they need to know about vegitarians, religious diets, allergies etc.

They also need to know about any disabilities, medical conditions etc. E.g a deaf person needs to be near a fire exit and have a key availible, or have a visual fire alarm so that they can evacuate in case of a fire.

They used to ask if you smoked, but Trevs has now gone all non-smoking in the rooms, so they may not ask you that one.

For colleges with different blocks, they may ask your preference. As Trevs is all one building that was not asked.

They ask if you want to share 1st term, or not, and they also ask questions to determine who to pair you up with if you do share 1st term. Things like Snoring, do you prefer early mornings or late nights, do you like quiet study or parties. The problem is people don't answer honestly!
