    It depends on the halls, but most require you to have your own kitchen stuff, ie: frying pan and a little pot, plates, cutlery, mugs, glasses, chopping board, sieve, fish slice/spatula, wooden spoon. I got a kettle and a little toaster for my room, and a mini George Foreman-style grill thing as well.

    I think the main electricals should be provided. Unless you need something like a juicer, blender...that you'll probably have to take your own.
    Your own pots/pans and plates/cuttlery is a definate :yep: don't want to be using other peoples :no: especially if you or a fellow student has special diet requirements (vegetarian, halal, kosher etc.) it's not good to be sharing it.

    Nope. We don't get kettles or toasters ¬_¬

    I'm taking a big pan, a little pan, two pots, a big mixing bowl, a small kettle - I'll get a toaster when I'm there, don't want to turn up with one, as will have everyone else! - and then I'm taking some tupperware, and some wooden spoons, spatula etc

    I Lived in Trafalgar, and you will need the usual:

    Knives and Forks
    Sauspans
    Jugs
    Mugs and glasses
    Kettle

    Oven with Hobs, and Microwave are provided.

    Just remember though, its most likely that the people you are going to be living with will also bring all those things, i didn't bother with a Kettle, you can also pop to Tesco and pick up all the things you need to save a bit of packing!

    Pay for the ingredients, and no probs :p:

    Serious question... If I were to set up something like that - you pay for the ingredients, and then chuck a couple of quid on top as payment - do you think people would go for a home cooked meal service? You're actually AT uni, so you've got more idea than I do :p:

    Mhm, no I dont think that would work...because they could just cook it themselves couldnt they?...also, at Uni a lot of students prefer eating out...Kens, Subway etc...these businesses are making some serious cash because they are cheap, quick etc...
    Although, your idea may work for people in your flat?...but I think people who would warm up to the idea, would be the same people who like cooking..
    Which halls are you staying in as well?..
    Oh and, i'm not sure you'd have enough time to do all this...:P
    students serving students..great idea though!

    I'm scrounging loads of stuff off friends and family for the kitchen. I figure, it's probably all going to get broken, so I don't want to spend loads on kitchen stuff. So far, I have had 10 mugs (excessive I know), some glasses, tea towels, sandwich toaster, plates, bowls, baking sheets, and knife block donated to me. I think my boyfriends mum is also going to sort out some cutlery. So that still leaves me with a fair bit to buy, but it's a good start! Now I'm going to add wok to my shopping list, that's a great idea!

    Erm, what halls are you in

    I am pretty much the most lazy person in terms of cooking when it comes to uni.... so if that 'service' was available to me when I was in halls, i would've gladly paid for it. So long as the person was a decent cook, that is
