There has been a lot of college talk here, so I wanted to add my two cents: I was at LMH for a year last year and i simply loved it. they have really pretty gardens, close to the wonderful uni parks, and are away from the hustle and bustle of cheap tourism. i had an absolutely amazing time there, and would have gone there had it not been for their poor funding. so if you dont need money from a college, LMH is great. two minors things that you might want to consider though...first, i didnt feel like the MCR and the JCR were very close, in that i hardly noticed any intermingling in a social capacity outside formal events. now this might just have been my experience, but i was fairly social and knew most freshers and most of them didn't really know many grad students. second, there is a REALLY mean porter there who goes out of his way to try and "find" you doing something wrong. oh man, he liked to be on our case all right!
