    Heyy all :woo:


    By the looks of things unite halls seem more of a laugh. ie, as they are not on uni grounds therefore they do not seem to care about silly things like

    * no fridges in rooms (this is true for on-campus halls) :mad:

    * restriced internet (no gaming, no downloading) :mad:

    * on site wardens (telling you to go to bed) :confused:

    *booking in of visitiors (want to bring a new friend over after a drunken night ) :eek3:

    i've heard loads about Radnor and the like... just nothing about Central Point

    Whats it like and how are unite with there rules etc???????

    Fridges the probably won't notice. Restricted Internet isn't all that restricted at all. On-site wardens are for safety not to tell you what to do. Nobody books in visitors.

    On-site wardens don't tell you to go to bed! They just ask you to keep the noise down after 11pm if you're making lots of noise during the week and if you have too many people crammed in your flat!

    I don't know about Central Point but St Thomas Unite building in Plymouth, the internet had no probs (could even get uni wireless from most rooms actually), no-one was around to check for visitors, no evidence of wardens (a few people to go to for help and maintenance guys etc) and no-one checked the rooms all year (for fridges etc) if that's any help.

    Unite's a private company that offers private halls near universities. They're just another option
