I was surprised when I got your letter yesterday. I think it was at last Christmas we wrote in between.
I’m so happy that you chose the same course which you wanted to take, but it is the decision to study in the university I studied makes me even happier. When I was a student there, I could not find an accommodation near to the college, as I joined late. So I stayed in Fraser Town for a year, before I moved to Thomas Town, which is near to college and the city.
I’m sure that you will plan things in advance, and so I think you can find a better accommodation inside the city, proximal to the college. The best thing is that you need to log on to www.findmyplace/kimcollege/student.org, and check for the same well ahead of your enrolment.
I should tell you one thing. Many students pay the rent before the occupancy, and find themselves dissatisfied with the facilities. So, I suggest you to pay just a token advance, and contact my friend Mike who is doing post-graduation there. He’ll see whether it suits you, and then you can pay the rent.
