As i'm sure you know, leaving home for the first-time to attend university can be a bit of a step into the unknown for a lot of students - especially when it comes to cooking...
Feeling a bit like Ebenezer Scrooge this December? The days of feeling flush when your loan came in are long gone and there is really nothing worse than having to scrimp and save at this time of year; a time of giving and of course a time of absolutely fantastic food! Well, the good news is that you don’t necessarily have to compromise on the food part….
If you haven’t already been bombarded with leaflets, free lollipops and invitations to join absurd promotional events, you are obviously lucky enough to live in a University with non-aggressive letting agencies nearby. For those of us who do, the mad rush to find a student house to live in for the next academic year could hardly have gone unnoticed. Hunting for housemates, signing contracts, paying deposits… the whole thing is all a bit bewildering.
I know you think this is probably impossible to do, but it really isn’t with a little bit of thought and preparation!
Maybe you have just moved into student accommodation, or know someone who has. Either way, you might want to pay attention to some pretty startling news about fire hazards in Halls of Residence.
