Berlin’s East Side Gallery (made up of a stretch of what was once the Berlin Wall)
Reichstag (or House of Parliament)
Bebelplatz, a beautiful public square in the heart of Mitte is home to the stunning buildings of the State Opera house, Humboldt University Law Faculty and St. Hedwigs Cathedral, located along the famous Unter Den Linden boulevard.
Checkpoint Charlie: the city’s most famous border crossing from the time of the Berlin Wall.
Berliner Dom (or Berlin cathedral)

Only two days to go. I hope everyone is getting very excited about moving into University and beginning a new chapter in their lives. Our subwarden and senior team have been working (literally) around the clock prepping a great programme of hall events for freshers fortnight (yes, freshers now last two whole weeks).
Halls events are an incredible opportunity to meet and become friends with people whom you will probably know for the rest of your lives, and also just to have some fun whilst living in halls. They are also a great way to keep costs down as we have an annual budget to put towards subsidising events.
This budget is known as the hall activities fund. This fund is paid for by a small proportion of your weekly rent (currently £2 per week). With a hall the size of Gabor, over a 39 week year, that adds up to around £11k. As it is your money, you will have a big responsibility for administering it, and having a say in how it is spent. You can do this by joining the hall committee, which we will talk about in the Warden’s welcome talk.
For now, you should buy the G-Pass for halls events (£40) which I believe provides around £30-£40 of savings on the cost prices of the events we are going to.
Dear prospective students of 2015/16, For those of you nervously waiting for A-level results to see if you got in, forget about it and go and have a great summer! We are really looking forward to welcoming our new intake … Continue reading →
