Though it is probably the last thing on your mind when moving back to University or moving there for the first time, it is something you will have to tackle eventually. How should you choose to decorate your University room! This is a room where you are going to spend the majority of your year Read more
Despite part time work and two weeks of work experience ahead, I am finally able to sit back and relax for the summer. Second year went ridiculously quick, it seems like only yesterday I was first moving into Talybont North and using my huge bags of pasta as a door stop. Suddenly, I blinked and Read more
Last week I had three exams, this is the most amount of exams I have had over the past three years in exam period. I had to endure Monday, Wednesday and Friday exams and then had a weeks gap before my last one. Dealing with exams is never easy and if the exam timetable gods Read more
Among the many changes you will have to make when you go to uni, living with other people and adapting to a new living situation will most likely be one of the biggest adjustments you’ll have to cope with. Whether you’re moving into halls with strangers, moving into a house with friends, or moving into Read more
To be honest with you all, this is very much going to be a bit of rant. I had the worst experience ever moving into my final year flat a couple of weeks ago. I won’t name the letting agency, but they were awful. The flat itself is great and it’s all fine now, but Read more

As I’ve been packing all of my possessions up once more, I’ve been thinking about all of the places I’ve Read more
I’ve just done something potentially very very stupid… So I have no idea how many of you are aware, but it’s gotten to that point in the year where people in first year have been thinking about the (mostly) inevitable move out of halls and into private accommodation, and with that comes no end of Read more
A massive part of the uni experience is living with your friends. It comes with absolute hilarity and things like ‘Uni Challenge’ nights (Monday evenings, after Guides), but also comes with things like bin duty, maintenance requests and this annoying thing called rent. And house hunting. Oh house hunting, how I loathe you. Once you’ve Read more
We all know that student accommodation isn’t always the most homely of places. Maybe there’s some nice mould in your bathroom, or a dodgy chair, or a draft from your window. When I first lived in halls I was so disappointed that I could decorate or leave any marks anywhere – it felt like my Read more
