    Now accommodation letters are being sent out, who else will be at QEQM?

    I'm in BT21, which I'm told is the second floor in the tower block (8 rooms per floor).

    aha! all is not lost.. i've just read most of the hall of residence handbook and at the end it does actually say in reference to QEQM "Each kitchenette is equipped with a fridge-freezer, microwave, mini-oven with hob and a kettle."

    so I guess we wont need to buy one then!

    Does F 08 indicate building F flat 8, and would that mean I'm on the ground floor? Your room is on the first floor

    How many people are generally allocated to each kitchen? it can vary generally it is 5

    Are there any shared social rooms / living spaces available other than the kitchen in each building? Not in the actual blocks but there is a tv lounge and bar area as well as a refectory area.

    Does the catering provided offer alternatives for vegetarians? please contact the hall on 02392844529 for catering enquiries

    Is it correct that every kitchen includes a mini-oven with hobs, as well as a microwave, fridge and kettle?
    This information is detailed in the Hall handbook


    They seem fairly happy to answer any questions!

    The location of it, the building itself. It is slightly different to the other buildings, when I was there, the whole top floor flooded..and everyone was relocated to different halls, also, I was living on the bottom floor..we had the smallest kitchen of the whole University Accommodation :/ they may have improved the place since then..but if they havent...good luck!
