    Ahh thats fine then. I'll just get one when I'm down there I'm sure they won't do me on the first week of being there. Cheers inferno.
    I BELIEVE (but don't quote me) they have to send you a reminder before they can take any action anyway.

    I have a question actually... The internet in our rooms isn't going to be wireless, so does that mean that they'll provide us with ethernet cables? Or will we have to bring our own/buy them from the campus?

    Went into Currys.Digital earlier today out of interest to see how much cables cost, and also the laptops.

    They wanted £20 for a 2m Cat5 network cable. Bloody rip off. Tempted to make a few up off a reel and sell them when I get there for a fraction of the high street price.

    Hope the halls provide one though.

    Yeah I have some lying around. Was just annoyed at the fact they're selling them for so much on the high street. Ripping so many people off.

    Luckily for me I have a Ethernet cable lying about the house somewhere...now I just have to find it!

    Just received an email telling me I've been allocated a "Value room". Yay for a little money off the rent but now I'm seriously worried about fitting all my junk into my room!!!!

    Anybody else been allocated one of these?

    I haven't received that email, but could always be arriving in a later batch I guess.

    I've no idea how big the rooms are to be honest, I didn't visit and the pictures on the website are a bit fail. The video of the halls only show a room which is built with disabled access in mind so its a lot bigger than the normal sized ones so doesn't help at all.

    Anybody seen any decent pics around?

    I've noticed that the pictures of the bedrooms for cranborne are the same for another of the buildings so that's no help.
    I did a pic search of cranborne house bournemouth on google and found a couple of photos but they weren't much help as one was of the door and the other mainly a window and a bit of a bed though it that's what the beds are, they look more like sofas.

    Managed to find these on Facebook. I assume the door to the left of the bathroom is going to be a wardrobe or something? Looks pretty tiny >_<

    I'm aiming to fit 2 TFT's and the desktop tower on there. I think it might be ok =\

    Maybe you should leave the TV at home and buy a TV card for the PC or something if you're really worried it will be a ***** to get on there.

    I'll be praying http://www.tvcatchup.com isn't blocked :yep:

    I don't like the beds though, small and have the odd back to them + shower looks grimey

    I'm sure you can bring a double duvet if you want. Is your room and if you prefer that I can't see them telling you you can't.

    No idea on the bin though.

    in the pics theres a bin under the desk but id rather have a metal one, there would be one in the kitchen. Im sure they wouldnt refused you a double duvet but you have to wash it lol.
