    I have been assigned SY.G.05.033 but ideally I wanted a room with a washbasin. What are then chances of getting one if I phone up and ask? I'm guessing very slim as they would have assigned me one in the first place if they could.
    SY.G.05.034

    Physics, and I drink pretty much anything but I'm not heavy drinker as a) it's expensive and b) I can't handle it too well .

    I'm sure I can change all that during freshers though :P.

    How about you?

    the slanted windows/roofs at whitworth would probably annoy me if anything (being reasonably tall)

    a duvet, pillows, duvet cover - the usual. they give you a mattress cover, though. you can buy a bedding pack from them, but it's horrendous.

    I'd also reeeaaaalllly suggest investing in a mattress topper! the bed's are alright, but a nice comfy mattress topper makes a world o' difference.

    They're like a padded..topper that you put on your mattress. this is an expensive one, but I couldn't be bothered to search around -

    I had a really nice one and it made such a difference. the beds are alright, but they can do with a bit of extra padding really.

    in the kitchen there's an oven, a hob if you're in maple/holly (I think) a fridge, a massive freezer, a kettle, a microwave (ours was amazing) table, chairs (dining and "recliner"), and a tv stand. that's it. toasters, george foreman grills, pans etc. are up to you. oh, and you get a horrendous ironing board but you have to supply your own iron.

    in your room there's a bed, wardrobe, desk with three drawers, a desk chair and a set of shelves - that's it. you couldn't get much else in tbh, although a few of my flatmates bought those little plastic trolley drawers from argos, they're pretty good.

    drawer space is pretty limited really, although I managed and I have many many clothes. the wardrobe's an alright size, and it has a drawer in it which is really useful. I couldn't fit all my clothes in there though, I used my desk drawers, too.

    If you're really concerned, something like this will fit in your room -

    there's no lamp, there's nothing except for what I said in the above list. they're pretty cheap to get from ikea.

    it must be done! although, I rarely did any..
