Accomodation woes

It seems to be de rigeur to moan about accomodation, so here's my contribution. I'm living this year in what is effectively a small hall in Coventry which is formed by three houses knocked together. So far this week, we've had problems with the plumbing, the boiler, and the internet access; with this last having occured at sporadic intervals throughout the year. Twice, people have broken in, including one armed with a knife. The light on the corridor outside my room has gone, and as far as I'm aware, it's one that is the responsibility of the University to replace – in the meantime, it's pitch-dark outside my room at night. I'm beginning to wonder what will happen next: will the roof start leaking? Will the windows fall out? Will the whole place fall down around our ears?

  1. Check the spelling of 'accommodation'...

  2. And as an encore, another shower is now fucked. Although thankfully the boiler is working again. This is getting ridiculous; I should at least be able to wake up in the morning without wondering which particular facility won't be working today.
