You tripped over the skaters at Millennium Point at least once.

1. During freshers' week you made your flatmate take a photo of you with the bull.

2. Then you went to the freshers' fair for the cheap food and freebies.

You could choose between £1 Domino's pizzas, free boxes of noodles, and as many sweets as you could cram in your pockets. Dinner for a week sorted.


4. To feel in the loop with your flatmates, you joined the Facebook group for your uni accommodation.

The best nights in were when you and your flatmates would scroll through the group and laugh at the people arguing over bins and the washing up.

5. Only to find out about the magical land of Curzon Gateway.

10. When lectures began, you got to experience the wait for the lifts in Millennium Point.

When it did finally make an appearance, It was always full of kids from Thinktank or it would stop on every single floor.


13. And once in the building, you always seemed to end up lost.

15. And you complained when Moodle went down because of over-capacity.

Even though it happened every deadline day.


17. And the Bullring was your favourite place to shop.

Even though you couldn't go on weekends because it was too busy.


20. But at least there was always Eat4Less for dinner.

A student's holy grail and a parent's nightmare.
