    I was in halls at UEA last year. 4 out of the 8 people in my flat had fridges in their room, and one of them had a full size kitchen fridge under their desk. The cleaners don't care, and if it's under your desk they cant see it anyway.

    Maybe you could wait until you got there and see how bad your flatmates are?

    Some of the stories I hear, make my flatmates last year sound like angels! *LoL*
    Im not worried about people stealing my food really, I just really want one.

    my boyfriend has this very fridge in his house (not uni accommodation - just a standard house) and i can tell you its big and brilliant!! holds loadsa beer, food, etc. never noticed it making a sound though? i'm thinking of getting my own one for when i go to uni in october but £90 is steep for my below the bread-line student budget!!! if i can raise the dough though i'll def be getting one. much more useful than those car fridges that only fit 4 cans in (that'd last me for a good hour then!!)

    fine, although i did go through a brief period of wanting to kill myself around mid-december time, hehe. all the work is certainly an eye opener and i now detest all things biochemistry with a passion.

    i passed everything though and did not return for any infamous resits (which quite a few medics did surprisingly). the vets i knew passed as well.

    as far as a-levels are concerned, i went through a two week period beforehand of not sleeping and having nightmares about a massive "C" grade chasing me around the school grounds with a poker stick. hope you're not worried that much!! it turned out alright for me, and 26% of people do get As in chemistry, maths etc. so i dare say you'll be fine!

    I got a fridge when i was in nurses accomodation. No one nicked food but we only had one fridge between 8 so there wasn't much room.

    Back in the real world of a 'proper house' it's nice to have a food fridge in the kitchen and a beer fridge in the living room. Mine's about 2' high, so cover it with a fancy bit of material and it looks like a bedside cabinet.

    I have one of the cheapy £20 white fridges and I wouldn't recommend them. For a start, because of the shape you can only just about fit two single pint cartons of milk in. It's not easy to put in lots of differently shaped stuff - I could fit in two cartons of cranberry juice but not one carton of cranberry and one pint of milk.

    It can run VERY cold but the downside of this is that ice sometimes forms on the bottom if you get condensation into it. This happens if you turn it on and off because of the noise. It does make a very annoying humming noise, a bit like a laptop running too hot with all its fans on at once.

    You may be interested to know that you cannot fit a friend's head in it unless your friend has an especially small head.
