We also top the "Most expensive private rents" table:

Funny! What have they based these rankings of pulling potential on - if its just the sheer number of males then they ought to redo they're calculations. They clearly haven't taken "factor Y"* into account ;)

*Factor Y = males at Imperial

(I'm teasing, of course)

You mean "Factor Y = gay males at Imperial", surely?

And why can't Imperial students just live wherever Westminster students are living and cycle/take the tube a bit further? Aren't Westminster and SOAS in similar locations, give or take a mile?

Maybe Imperial students have more expensive tastes/higher standards when it comes to accomodation.

"The odds are good, but the goods are odd" ever the Imperial female's mantra...

Yes, I'm late coming to this discussion but...

How did Imperial end up first with the RCM at 8th? We're in the same goddamn place!

But they have music students. So more girls? Basically.

I think he meant how did RCM end up 8th in the "Most expensive private rents" table. The only thing I can think is that RCM students choose to live further away to save money?

RCM Halls of Residence...


Weekly rents for the 2008/09 Academic Year are:

Large single ?122 per week (?5246 for 43 weeks)

Standard single ?106 per week (?4558 for 43 weeks)

Shared ?69 per week (?2967 for 43 weeks)

Compare that to Imperial College's Accommodation prices and that might explain it a bit.

That explains their absence from the "Most expensive university housing" list (which Imperial actually isn't in either!), not the fact that they are #8 in the "Most expensive private rents" table...

It'd probably help if I read the article rather than just the headline and comments, wouldn't it?? XD

Maybe as they have a lot less contact hours, they do not mind living further out. A one hour commute there and back twice a week, compared to a half hour commute five days a week (or seven days a week if you are a final year chemical engineering student!)

obviously miss fatterson was not included, otherwise the sex poll would've fallen out VERY differently

Jun 08 2009 13:58

I like girls who cheat on men
