    We're planning on arriving some time during the day of Saturday 19th.. the guide to my halls definitely says my first meal is that evening.

    Btw has everyone recieved their welcome packs yet?? Cos I haven't And does anyone know about how much gowns will cost at the gown sale in freshers week? Because an old friend who also went to St A has offered to sell me hers, still in good condition apparently, for £60.. but I wasn't sure if this was good..? Thanks for your help

    Brand new gowns will definitely be more than £135 (that was the price a few years ago). I'll see if I can find a price somewhere.

    If you buy your friends, make sure it is the right length for you - it should fall to just below your knees roughly.

    They do sell second hand ones, but they go fast so if you want one, get there as soon as the sale starts. Some of them are very good quality second hand (i.e. the ones that have hardly been worn and have been kept out of direct sunlight). You do get some second-hand ones that have faded and gone a funny orange colour, but they're still ok!

    Strangely enough, I haven't really thought about it much.
