    What happened to Bowder Court in the end? In the spring term of 2010 the Accommodation Office said that they were planning to refurbish Bowder Court from September 2010 and throughout the 2010-11 academic year. But it got postphoned. Did Bowder Court ever get refurbished? Though I cannot see why Bowder Court even needed refurbishing, speaking as a former resident from there. Or are the current residents of Bowder Court being disturbed and relocated from ongoing refurbishment and rebuilding occurring there at the moment?

    What is going on?

    Should be in the two weeks of exams. I already have a draft of mine as my departments have put them on blackboard. I've never seen a major change of room from a draft (except for the one with no room allocated when the draft was sent out).

    I'm dreading my year abroad, the whole thing is a nightmare of bad organisation and I don't know anyone who is looking forward to it!

    Charles Wilson is being extended and they're building a bike store underneath the paving in front of the library.

    Same. It's been hard trying to learn Dutch and the university I'm going to, their administration doesn't fill me with confidence.

    I don't even know where I'm going and since I'm probably going to do an assistantship, there is no help with accommodation and the university doesn't appear to give a ****.

    Hi, I was just wondering if anybody knew of the date for the UCAS open day for the Ancient History department? I sent of the form to apply, but can't remember what the date was, and can't seem to find any paperwork at home.
    Thanks.

    Might be a couple. There was when I chose one. Email [email protected] and she should be able to tell you. Or ring the department up.

    Library: Redeveloping the podium and they are building a big bike storage underneath. Link.

    Charles Wilson: They were just redoing the front and making the inside look a tad bit nicer and making improvements for disability access and in the wiring. Which it seems is all done now and does look rather good.
    Link.

    So how is everyone's timetables looking?

    I've got 9 hours a week now. (I'm sitting in a module so have 2 more than I would have- I want my monies worth!)

    It does mean I have four hours straight on a Tuesday. Not looking forward to that I have to say. 9-1. With the only gap the dash from the first room to the second.

    This. :dontknow:

    Not sure how they'll do it without embarassing anyone though as they won't know everyone who is a Leicester student/graduate/staff member.

    It's actually mostly college kids in there. If you look at the textbooks sitting on the tables, most of them will be A-Level ones. The day the college went on strike I was working in the union and it was ridiculously empty, even though there were quite a few departments still teaching including mine. One of my friends works for contact and gave up going round the union shilling in freshers week as most of the people there weren't even freshers. She said that there was even a number of them who went to the freshers' fair to take the goodies. I complained about it to the Vice Chancellor in the meeting he does with the Course-Reps, as did some others, which is probably why something is finally being done.
