In Photos: Britain’s Biggest Student House
Check out this whopping student house in Plymouth that’s home to 32 students
Pissed off with your housemates for failing to do their washing up or staying up late when you’ve got lectures in the morning? Spare a thought for these students at Plymouth University who share their student house with 31 others.
The Tab has the lowdown from inside the belly of the beast.
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.
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.
People drink out of bins
Living with so many people means a night out is pretty much a house party, all the time.
People are always passed out around the house
Sometimes people nobody even knows…
Ex-housemates are always visiting
The house frequently has alumni visiting, always up to their usual antics in the sheer excitement to be back.
There’s a room for everything
Everything seems like a great idea
The volume of the house makes any activity justifiable.
Christmas is highly anticipated
The showers can be pretty intimate
The giant pad has duo-shower rooms. Apparently your first time showering in a cubicle next to the opposite sex will be weird. From then on you’ll love it.
And it’s a great way to make some friends
Weird, wonderful; local or foreign – with such a diverse array of people there’s somebody for everybody.
