Student Residence A – HU, Honeycomb Hills
Who lives here?
Near the entrance is a small office where the deans have (limited) office hours during the week. This way they’re close by for students who have urgent questions.
The student residence also has a library, spread out over all three floors. But that sounds bigger than it actually is.
A wash room for the students who don’t bring their laundry home to mum.
Common room and kitchen
The common room has a seating area, a tv, a pool table, a kitchen with two fridges, and tables where the students can eat their meals. They have to prepare these themselves though!
The corridors are nothing special, but I love the feel of them. On each floor there are four doors leading to four bedrooms which are designed to each be shared by two students.
Room 1 currently houses Chris and James. Both music students, they moved the furniture around to make room for their instruments.
The first two pictures show Chris’ side of the room, the next two show James’ side.
Harry and Narai are the current occupants of room 4. They were already roommates in their old student home in Honeycomb Valley and have grown accustomed to sharing with one another. They placed their desks together to create a bigger workplace.
Photography fanatic Harry put pictures over his bed which he took himself, while geeky Narai went for posters to show his love of vintage videogames.
One floor up, we find room 5. Best friends Jill and Sarah share this room. They went all out trying to make it homely, adding plants, cushions and lots of pictures. Including one of them together as kids, as can be seen on the bookcase in picture 4. The bed underneath the Titanic poster is Jill’s. Although that might be clear seeing how Sarah obviously put a picture of her and Seth over her bed.
Room 6 and 7
Room 6 and 7 are currently unoccupied and show how the student rooms look before students put their own stamp on it. Each room holds two beds with blue (university colour) blankets, two bookcases, two desks and chairs and two wardrobes. Students are allowed to move furniture around as they please and to add what they like, but they are not allowed to dispose of furniture already in the room. Pictures can be hung on the walls using no screw picture hanging strips, which the university can provide for a fee.
The images below are of room 7, but room 6 is similar.
Room 8 is currently the place where Anna and Suzan will spend their student years. They used one bookcase for books and the other for shoes. Anna’s bed is pictured on teh first picture below and Suzan’s on the third.
There’s one bathroom between two bedrooms, which the students staying in those bedrooms share. In each bathroom there are two toilet cubicles and two showers. So it could well be that you have to wait your turn in the morning. Students are required to keep their bathrooms (and the rest of the house for that matter) clean themselves.
