How long is a piece of string?

Shop in the UK when you get here. Oh and read a really good lifestyle and fashion column in the Aston Times called "SlyFi" (shameless plug)

Question to everybody, are you intending to go down/up/along to Aston on the 24th or on the 25th? I'm not quite sure which day to come on, and don't want to miss anything.

Does anyting apart from moving in take place on the 24th?

well just have a few of everything; one or two plates, as many mugs as you can bear to litter your room with ...

clothes wise you have a normal wardrobe sized, er wardrobe/cupboard you can store clothes and stuff and and at least one shelf.

As far as i remember each flat in stafford tower has a communal storage room on each corridor for keeping extra bits in, none of the other accom has this.

Queenah - if youre moving on the 17th there will be some international freshers week aunties around to help you move in etc and you'll meet other international students so dont worry.

Your accom details will tell you about the checking in procedure.
