We go through a lot of loo roll

I live with 32 people, and it’s been one hell of an experience.

Nothing is your own, house parties get a bit wild and I’m not even sure who I live with half the time.

The kitchen is a free-for-all

Everything you arrive with belongs to the house. Forks and plates are priceless. Expect to see a saucepan of mouldy pasta.

We need a cleaner six days a week

Fridges will be constantly raided by drunks

Drunk people get hungry. With 30 fridges, your food will be stolen at some point. Mayonnaise is gold, as is ketchup.


This won’t help

You will drink out of bins

Living with so many people means a night out is pretty much a house party, all the time.


Dressing up is the norm

You will find people passed out around the house

Sometimes people you don’t even know…


Sticky carpet-bed for the night

Passed out

Even stickier kitchen floor

Ex-housemates are always visiting

The house frequently has alumni visiting, always up to their usual antics in the sheer excitement to be back.


He likes to get naked


…as does he

Everything seems like a great idea

The volume of the house makes any activity justifiable.


You’ll heavily conform to student behaviour

Christmas is highly anticipated


My favourite time in the house

You’ll be showering together, a lot…

Well, we have duo-shower rooms. Your first time showering in a cubicle next to the opposite sex will be weird. From then on you’ll love it.

He loves a quick peek

You’ll make friends you wouldn’t have expected

Weird, wonderful, local or foreign – with such a diverse array of people you’ll find yourselves making friends you never thought you would.


The best aspect by far

    I truly weep for humanity sometimes. Why the fuck would you just stand there and take photos of someone who has just fallen from a 10 storey window? This is why we need feminism.
