Okay, all these come from Wikipedia, which come from some other sources.

These refer to UK campus, but I think can be used. biggrin.gif
"the nearest Britain has to a truly global university"
"a prime alternative to Oxbridge"
"among the most sought-after in higher education"

Official motto:
Latin: Sapientia urbs conditur
English: A City is Built on Wisdom

How about these?
"10 years in Malaysia"
"as big as 101-acres"
"3,800 students and counting!"

Haha, I am more towards the "10 years in Malaysia" at the moment.
Maybe, "10 years in Malaysia, 3,800 students and counting!"

That is nice. Will add it in for the next revision (probably the official one).

nop, just have an air cond installed and you have your own bathroom...the room area is the same as those sharing bathroom, but then with sharing bathroom, it actually gives you more space for the room itself since the bathrooms are connected instead of inside of 1 room, hope you get what I mean  smile.gif

Yea, I got ya'. It says on the application form that the ensuite rooms have a floor area of 13.23 sqm. Seems rather small to me.

Do the rooms in Edu Square come with Internet connection? They also appear to have bigger floor areas than the on-campus rooms?

I like the 10 years in Malaysia, maybe add in "and still counting". Unofficial ones would be, WE STILL KICKS MONASH'S ASS. Pure kidding.

And I suggest drop the 3800 students thing leh, like bit weird, keep that statistics for Admission Office LOL.

Maybe we add in Uncyclo's version of Nottingham? Just for the fun of it.

[edit] Link up the Academic Calender, it's available here Academic Calendar

Sorry, just came back from perhentian a couple of days ago. I'll give you what I've written so far....so everything is still TBC.
*Writes behind facade of anonymity*

Accommodation Review

Price

In short, don't expect the prices any rooms here to be anywhere near financially kind. Renting a room, whether on campus or anywhere within the vicinity of the campus is AS costly as those you can scour in KL and Peejay, and be adequately warned that the level of comfort you expect to derive from these rooms may not correspond to the amount of rental you fork out. rclxms.gif vmad.gif

The general rule of thumb is the farther away, the cheaper, so those who have their personal modes of transportation may wanna check out potential rooms or houses not too near to the university.

But since I am staying on campus, I can't really speak for those who live outside since I lack credibility.

Prices range from 350 to 600 plus on campus, in which your choice of whether to you'd like to have an en suite bathroom/A/C (or both) in your room or not will be duly incorporated into your rental. However, if you opt for an A/C, bear in mind that they charge you separately the electricity costs you incur during its usage. A single shared bathroom unit off campus (but under that of the PK and PC, which also brings us to the fact that accommodation here is privatized) is about RM 30 more a ripoff than its similar counterpart on campus.

One way of looking at this is that all the cruel holes the rental burns in your fee raped pocket, convenience and safety compensates on campus residents somewhat, and the importance of this privilege is arguably only felt when students are forced to move out a year later. So its not that bad, really! Expensive rental notwithstanding, living within walking proximity of certain facilities (depending on where your priorities lie, ie, the library and the 24 hour study rooms for me) may be a major strategic interest to nightowls and late risers who are never bright and early for the daily races.

So basically, while the price may appear unreasonable to some, the location does levy its share of benefits.

And oh yeah, they are quite particular with punctuality; they expect you to indemnify administrative delays so make sure you surrender your cash on time! Hahahaha! laugh.gif


And oh yeah, the accommodation offices expect you, with reasonable integrity ( icon_idea.gif icon_idea.gif icon_idea.gif ), to declare all personal electrical appliances such as electric kettles, mini bars, portable stand fans, rice cookers, toasters and whatnot so that they can charge you accordingly! And these rates are really not light.
They can only charge you if you declare lol. To stop them from milking your money, you have the option not to declare, which is a crime that many of us here knowingly commit. (In Pangkor and Kapas halls la)


Next is Environment...(underway)

My dorm mates, chinese exchange students, had all sorts of stuff...like kettles, cookers, aquariums (???)


There is this indescribable sense of gratification from the fact that I've managed to smuggle my favourite toaster in....and totally not get ripped off.

one is having the bathroom all to yourself...the other is having a bathroom shared between two rooms...it is in the middle of both rooms, something like "connecting" the two rooms
