Anyone else part of the big tribal snowball fights on the Rutherford/Eliot field?

And that igloo/snowball barrier was pretty darn cool.

One girl threatened to knock it down as we were leaving, but she didn't.

My friend who goes kent uni is going to apply to live at parkwood again for her second year. I want to know if she can state a preference for not living with first years? should be reasonable i think. :yep:

I would imagine the chances of her actually getting a place for second year on campus are VERY slim to nothing. They keep priority for all on campus accommodation for 1st year students and students returning from a year in industry.

On the actual application form for accommodation theres no sort of preference choice for what year of students you can live with. I'd suggest your friend makes the application, then contacts Kent Hospitality to make this request.

I would also suggest that she looks for off campus accommodation now, as I reckon she's unlikely to get a place on campus for next year. Not definite, but i'd say the odds are stacked highly against her.

It depends, if your mate has been abroad for year, then you get guarenteed accomodation and you can choose who you're with.

Simply a second year, I don't know. I wouldn't have thought so, I know quite a few second years that live with first years.

I've heard a few people saying 'Oh, I cba/can't find anyone to live with/can't find a house/would rather stay here next year so I'll stay on campus'... But I've heard that next year, the on campus accomodation is going to be solely for those in first year, who couldn't get on campus this year or coming back of a year in industry/abroad. I've heard this from the uni and students who've tried to get accomodation on campus for next year... I'd also strongly advise to her that she either goes to the accomodation office, and asks them, or starts to look for a house off campus.

^ Ditto to what everyone has said.

A neighbour of mine is in the same situation. I tried to explain it to her, but she's adament that if she gets no where to live off campus how can they refuse? A very worrying risk to run if you ask me!

Ah, you should have said something earlier. We needed someone but in theory we have someone now.
