What to expect when moving into halls
In every halls of residents there is a food monster, who sneaks into the kitchen when nobody is about and takes your food. At least this is the only explantation I have come up with to explain how food goes missing and people’s stuff gets used without anyone in the flat knowing where it goes.
Some Halls provide a padlock on the cupboards to only allow you to get your stuff. This is great and should stop the monster!
Sex is all around you.
University is known for being based around sex, drinking and possibly drugs. So it probably isn’t a surprise that you will hear some excitement from the room above/next door/below. However when you are trying to get to sleep or having friends round it can be a little cringe.
Party rock is in the house tonight!
Living in a house with a number of other people all studying different courses you will no doubt have a clash of timing every now and then. So while you are trying to study or write an essay you room mate may want to have a party or loud sex (try not to write SEX SEX SEX EWWW in your essay!)
Things that go bump in the night.
I don’t know what it is about the designers of student halls but they have managed to make a building where 99.9% of all the rooms will be able to hear everything that goes on by the main entrance. This basically means that every night you will be able to hear the door banging shut and people shouting as they come back from whatever club had a big night that night.
A knock at the door
Once you have become friends with your flatmates they will come knocking on your door at anytime they know you are in!
