    Currently I have a 32" Flatscreen TV and dont particularly want to buy a smaller one just to move into halls.

    Is it going to fit? I dont use a PC because I have a laptop so won't need a desk!

    Opinions please? Or should I just buy a smaller tv.

    No it won't. You'll become a social recluse if you take a TV to Hall - I only know three people in my Hall of Residence in my first two years that had TVs

    I'm taking my 32" HDTV with me too :proud: I'm using it as a PC monitor though so I kinda have to take it, but yeah it will fit in an average room. I know quite a lot of people who take their tvs and it isn't the end of the world as suggested above. I'm also taking my Xbox with me

    Thats good to know!
    To be honest the comment above obviously depends on the person, i'm very socialable anyway so its more of a thing to do in my alone time, I'll also be taking the Xbox and using the screen as a monitor for my laptop when doing projects and watching films etc.

    Anyone else?

    I recently got a 22" HD monitor which I'll be taking into halls with me.

    TV makes you a social recluse? I'm taking an Xbox 360, a sound chair and Rock Band with all instruments and a premium ION drumkit with me. =D

    i dont know whether to take my 26 inch tv with me or take a smaller tv. Would i even need a tv? im thinking its best to take one just in case, i mean if i dont use it then so be it, but at least ive got one to keep updated on the news etc. I dont know whether to take my 26 inch HDTV or not.
    Also whats your view on taking a full sized desktop pc? i have bought a laptop for Uni, but my desktop is better for gaming but i dont know if i would ever want to play games. I have no experience of uni so i dont know what im going to be doing most of the time.
    Any advice?

    p.s what about crockery etc, we all share a kitchen, presumably everyones going to be bringing there own crockery, wheres it all going to go!?

    I'm hoping my 40 inch will fit as i dont want to sell it and it will be useful for the second year when not in halls. If it doesnt, i may mount it on the wall!

    Dont think they'd let u mount it on the wall to be honest. Most of them dont let u use blue tac to mount posters!

    But hopefully our big TV's will fit
    Seems a bit silly having to buy a smaller one!

    yea i agree, if u lot are taking ur biggens then i am too, it does seem a bit stupid to down size just for the sake of living in a slightly smaller room.

    Christ, I never knew taking a TV would have such profound effects.

    I'm probably not gonna take one as soon as I move in, but I plan on taking my Xbox so I might buy one in the after a month or two.

    I'm bringing a 24" computer monitor and a 26" TV for my xbox360. They will fit. Somehow. Even if it's by sheer force of will.

    Why not use your tv as a computer monitor?

    One of my new housemates brought his 30" TV into halls , I probably wouldn't recommend doing something like that in halls if only becuase of the risk of having it damaged.Having said that I'm running a 24" and a 19" dual monitor setup with my PC in my flat.

    There's very little on TV anyway worth watching anyway so I think that would be unlikely - having a TV tuner has sometimes proved quite useful.

    Mines insured so i wont have to worry about the damage too much. As for becoming a social recluse - I wasnt planning to spend all my time watching the thing, it would just be useful for those moments when i am not in a drunken stupor, attending lectures, or sleeping!

    Because I like to be on the Internet and play games at the same time :cool: oh and also I'll be running an iMac and I'm not sure I want to faff around trying to figure out how to play an xbox360 through an iMac, if that's even possible...
