    Hey all, just thought i would create a thread for all those in Lakeside accomodation this coming sept! I know its a bit early but a few of us uncondtionals may have their offers of accomodation :-)

    i had a few questions too actually for anyone who knows..
    Does anyone have any pics of the rooms and the place at all? the website doesnt give that great pics.
    Also i know this is completley random, but do the sinks have 2 taps (like one for hot and one for cold) or do they have the one which gives out both? (i know its random i just have a thing about freezing water)

    anyway, we should totally make a facebook thread too

    see you guys in 2 months! looking forward to it.. ive been working extra hard this year to get the extra money for lakeside!

    I lived in lakeside 2005-6. I was lucky enough to get an unusually large room. I can't remember if there were two taps, as I've lived in 5 other places since

    In don't know about Lakeside but in standard we had 2 separate taps, so it may be the same.

    Yes, Lakeside has two separate taps on the sink in the bathroom, but a mixer tap for the two sinks in the kitchen. A little hint, you will find that there are little things on the taps in your bathroom that causes water to splash everywhere, just unscrew them and you will have normal water!

    I'd advise you also buy two little caddies that go on the wall with suction pads, one for your toothbrush/toothpaste and one for the shower, as the only storage in your bathroom is a cabinet above the toilet; this is obviously unsuitable for use in a shower or by the sink!
