    Hey everybody, I got my offer the other day (Chancellor's Court CC3037) and I was wondering if anyone had access to a floor plan or similar of Chancellor's. Google was unable to turn up anything and the Uni's site wasn't helpful either. Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide. I know this isn't really critical but I'd just like to know because that's the way I am :yes:

    Awesome! Can't wait to meet you. As far as finding this thing goes, I've tried pretty much everything I can. I'm very good at internet search but I haven't been able to find a darn thing, not even on the University's intranet.

    Haha, yeah. I hope they make up for it in other areas. I emailed them on Friday, but I'm 5 hours behind so I missed their office hours. Hopefully 'll get something Monday.

    How are the room numbers arranged?

    is it like:

    Code:
    A:
    [ 0 ][ 1 ][ 2 ][ 3 ][ 4 ]
    ------- Hallway --------
    [ 9 ][ 8 ][ 7 ][ 6 ][ 5 ]
    or rather like:

    Code:
    B:
    [ 0 ][ 2 ][ 4 ][ 6 ][ 8 ]
    ------- Hallway --------
    [ 1 ][ 3 ][ 5 ][ 7 ][ 9 ]
    Because when it's like A, rooms like 105 and 33 still could be close. Just wondering...

    Dear William

    There are no electronic floor plans you can access but if you are all in
    Chancellors you will only be a few minutes walk from each other. The first
    number of your 4 digit room number tells you which floor you are on so you
    can tell closeness vaguely based on that.

    Thank you

    It's like the second one. so if you have room 3033 then you would be through the wall (theoretically, corners alter this) from 3031 and 3035.

    OP: you are in A block with that number

    That's Lower Ground, AKA the basement.

    A-block has a lower ground floor which is where you will be. It's the same floor as the cafe

    CC3091 is where I'm at. I wonder who I'm sharing with.

    Do the accomodations people do random partnering or is it based on something?

    I was wondering, how many rooms/people are there to 1 pantry?
    About 20, or so I hear.

    If you have a Facebook, look for the Chancellors Court group, there have been some people with shared rooms looking for their partners. There's also a load of other interesting information. And I'm not sure about how AS assigns those.

    It's based on a personality questionnaire..it asks you to tick boxes to describe yourself and then they match you with someone similar..

    I never did one of those. Or maybe I did.

    I don't remember doing one of those, unless it was a generic "do you like smokers?" and "are you outgoing?".

    I hadn't realised that it existed until we phoned the accommodation people a few days ago and asked how room-mates are matched up. Did you receive an email from them asking you to accept a shared room? If so, then the questionnaire was attached to the email they sent after you replied saying you accept. It was questions like 'the room is for a) studying b) socialising or c) both' and whether you liked mainstream or alternative music etc. It also asked if you wanted to be put with someone on a similar course to you.
