    n00dles - i'm very much interested in a swap

    few things though:

    which hall have you got at evelyn?
    are you male/female? (i'm male, so obviously my place in a twin room is with another male)
    what's your rent? (mine is £102.55 per week or £3896.90 for 38 weeks)

    PM me if you'd rather talk about this out of the forum.

    hi, male, bunard sunley hall, it's like £135 a week here, which is why I want somewhere cheaper, even beit garden/week is £500 cheaper for standard single, plus it's closer to uni. Med school seems so far from evelyn

    oh same happened to me last year. I got twin ensuite in Beit when i never wanted it. Hope everyone has no accom problems. Bernard Sunley is the best halls in Evelyn gardens. Its about 15mins walk away from uni...but on the positive its very close to all the shops.

    I stayed in Evelyn gardens last year, and it was sooo good. It's really not that far from uni, only a 15 min walk, and it's much more sociable, we walked in in a big group and caught up on the gossip etc. It's also a very suitable location to get to Charing X hospital, where about a third of your lectures (and loads in final term) will be, as therez a direct bus stop immediately outside. I know Beit etc sound good, the whole waking up 5 mins before lectures thing, but Evelyn has sooo many advantages, like a Marks and Sparks and saisburyz a minute away, where the shops are a 20 mins walk from Beit. And there are 5 halls in Evelyn, so it's really handy if you make friends in the other halls, their just across the road! Bernard Sunley, Southwell, Holbein and Willi Jackson are all fabulous, really really nice halls, i was in Fisher, which is one of the cheapest halls, and it does look quite dingy, but i had an amazing year living there, and i really wouldn't worry if you end up there- we all had a great time!

    no no no..stop making him like eveyln!

    dont listen n00dles..you really want to get up 2 minutes before lectures..not walk 25 minutes, far far away from campus, in the cold, wet weather and get those horrible winter blues...right?

    lol..so biased.
