    They literally just walked in :shifty:
    They weren't mean or anything, they just said that I'd probably get an email about it.

    I did in fact almost bring a Christmas tree with me but wasn't sure how much space I'd have for it :o:
    Surely they have to give you a 24hr warning beforehand?

    With private tenancys its illegal for the landlord to just burst in without prior notice; I don't see why it should be any different for university accommodation.

    well they have keys to the common areas [we had our door seal fixed without even knowing they'd been in] but they should knock if they want access to your room...tho they can get a master key is necessary.

    In Becket court but I think they are gradually doing the rounds. I don't think they care if it is messy as long is it isn't like a biological hazard in there or any chance of you accidentally starting a fire.
    My lights are heavy duty outdoor ones so I don't see why it's likely that I'll manage to cause a fire. They didn't care about the kettle in my room, which is really cheap and probably a lot more dangerous.

    They knocked waited maybe 5 seconds (not long enough for me to walk over to the door after checking it was my door they were knocking) and then just opened it themselves.

    I might if you don't mind, I want to see how good the printer you get is so that I can decide whether or not to bother. You = guinea pig

    I bought a printer from Currys in town. It's a hp, and it cost £30. It's not a bad printer actually, and you get one black and one colour cartridge with it. You'll need to by a USB cable if you don't already have one though.

    And paper! That annoys me a bit...the University doesn't like you to bring cars onto the campus because they're trying to be "green", but then they insist on something as stupid as that.
    How many students are at this University? They must waste thousands of sheets of paper each yeah!

    I really hate karaoke....not sure if this is an open invitation or anything, but I won't be coming...it makes me cringe
    I too hate karaoke. It's just one of those things i'll never understand why people enjoy a karaoke night. It means either you have to get up sing (:eek: ) or you have to sit there and watch awful singers try and sing to some rubbish song. It's just really, really boring, isn't it? (I apologise to any karaoke fans)

    p.s Didn't realise they do room checks

    I have an annoying flatmate who tends to knock on the door but open it as he's doing it. God he winds me up. He's 27 and does the same thing to everyone - i'm not his favourite or anything
    Anyone have those two old guys come into your room at 8 in the morning to change your shower head?

    Come on, Karaoke is great!

    It doesn't matter whether you can sing or not, it's just a good laugh and can be very entertaining. :yep:
