Angie moved into accommodation on campus for her first year in 1980. She said: “I lived it Margaret House, Room 16 on the top floor, overlooking the Library and Sports Pavilion. We had a lovely ‘College mum’ called Christine Shepherd, who we could turn to for advice or support after moving away from home for the first time. She was a third year student and I’m still in touch with her now via Facebook!”


“Our accommodation was very clean and well looked after – we had a cleaner called Mrs Potts who came into our rooms once a week to clean the sinks and vacuum etc. We had baths, showers and toilets on all floors which were communal. Also, a tiny kitchen with a toaster, kettle and electric two ring hob. We were fully catered for meals wise – three two-course meals and mid-afternoon we could have ‘baby tea’ which consisted of a tea urn, biscuits and bread and jam.”


“During Rag Week everyone in halls took part in the Pyjama Parade through town – but that’s another story!”
