The porters threatened to confiscate my bike for keeping it in my room. They told me to keep it in the college bike shed with locks. I did as they said and it ended up getting stolen. I replaced my bike and kept the new one in my room. The college then threatened to confiscate it AGAIN if I didn't keep it in the bike shed, despite what happened with my first bike. I'm also an international student and am not returning to my home country for Easter Vacation. I specifically requested on my accommodation form that I have a room over the holiday. Well this didn't happen, as I am being kicked out WITHOUT being given ANY other accommodation options. They notified me of this one month before the start of vacation, leaving me little time to book flights home or find a place to stay. On top of that, they aren't providing me with enough room to store my things. Bottom line is don't go here. Many of the fellow students live beyond the 'posh, rich, and stuck up Surrey trust fund baby' rep.
With the character of a slightly too old port, smell of a Sanatorium post freshers week cleanup, and the aspects of an idealised first love, it is quite overwhelming. And it is; the college is a marvellous place- without the students. There are indeed two faces to the decrepitude that is present; the exteriors of the buildings lent authority with age, and the rummed, ragged and raucous runts that insist on partaking this individual journey wrapped in entitlement and ignorance. And that rot does spread to the executive of the college. The Castle charges a lot of money for its functions- fair when considering the damage that can occur in a University. One just wishes it didn't feel like the exec were pocketing the money and doing a runner, because I can't see how else it's spent. If I can think of more fun ways to spend £5g than just one silent disco and one audible one, one feels the exec shouldn't be a useless clique as it currently is.
Living in Bailey Court in University College. The rooms are a good size, but it is incredibly noisy and there is no social area apart from outside. Each room has a big window with a curtain that's too small, and a small window with no blind or curtain. My bathroom at the end of the corridor has no sink, so I can only wash my hands in my room, going through the same doors with my dirty hands as I have to use to get to the kitchen. If it was a hotel, I'd be calling in the building regs.
