oming to university can be a pretty daunting prospect. Apart from the logistical nightmare of packing up, transporting and then unpacking virtually all your worldly possessions - which task , bar the odd forgotten toothbrush , you 'll hopefully have completed by now - there are loved ones to be left, new friends to be made and money matters to be considered . For probably the first time you are going to have to organise your own washing , food and bill s with minimal interference from your

parents. Oh , and you 're going to be starting a degree programme at the same time. But at least you can console yourself with the fact that you're not on your own . One of the great things about going to university is that everyone has to make a clean start. Now you're at UEA you will be able to meet new people away from family and the odd, intricately incestuous networks of acquaintance that inevitably exist in the place where you grew up. it's strang ely liberating to think that the person you 're talking to at th e first LCR

probably has absolutely no idea what you did to Lizzy Braithwaite's pony tail when you were eight, or about that embarrassing time when you were sick in assembly at the age of 14. Similarly, the nickname 'Beaver' , which you've been carrying around since some wit at primary school observed how prominent your front teeth were (a condition thankfully rectified by a skilled orthodontist) can now be finally laid to rest.

"lt is strangely liberating to know that the person you talk to at the LCR has no idea of your awful nickname and past life at home" If you 're living in University accommodation , there are a number of things you should be aware of. First off, it's more than likely that you will experience some lifestyles and habits that are very different from your own . The secret here is to try and remain as clean and tolerant as possible. Issues of hygiene - how often people wash, whether they clean th& shower, and, in some extreme cases , whether they flush the toilet after use - can easily become a source of great dispute, and can spoil a potentially beautiful friendship. it will also have become clear by halfway through the first semester, when the kitchen contains dishes that have been festering for a full six weeks , that your corridor mates are making a determined effort to get through the year without washing up a single dish . Although obviously none of the mess could be yours ... Th ere are other lifestyle choices wh ich may prove less annoying , if still ext remely puzzling. In pretty much every corridor or flat th ere will be one 'anti -chef'; someone whose cooking repertoi re extends to baked beans on toast and no further - and even then th ey w ill burn the toast. Then, of course, there are those freshers wh o, separated from the disciplinary infl uence of their parents and divested of a regi mented system of meals, go completely nocturnal and/or lead wildy excessive - although probably quite fun - existences. Pranks also feature very prominently in the lives of people in university accommodation . Famous hall s pranks from times gone by include one poor lad who had his bed moved out of th e window whi le he slept an inebriated sleep, as well as vari ous 'jokes' involving toothbru shes th at we won 't even go in to. The moral here is to make sure you lock your door when you go out and when you go to sleep - and for God's sake, hide your toothbrush . But whatever you choose to do with this new found freedom, and whether you like living on campu s or not, unive rsity is a time to enjoy yourself, and in order to help you start off on the right foot a wealth of events and freebies have

been prepared for your delectation. Perhaps the most important events for you to attend are Soc Mart and Sports Mart, which take place on Friday, September 24, and where all the clubs and societies will try and cajole you into joining if the possibly can . They range from Korean to Korfball, so it's more than likely that you 'll be able to find something you 're interested in, and although some of them can be quite expensive, it is for th e whole year and the clubs and socs are a great way to meet people. If you want a full list of everyth ing you can join , take a look in the Handbook that should have been sent to you before you left home. Apart from Soc Mart and Sports Mart there are the evening events . Every year the Union's Ents department put togeth er a free Fresh ers' pack stuffed full of lovely goodies and offers, so make sure you get one - they'll probably be available from the Hive over the first few days. Also keep an eye on the gig listi ngs: there are a wealth of bands and DJs coming this semester and you're bound to want to see some of them. With all the new experiences you 've got coming , then , this year could be the best one of your life so far. So batten down your bank account, prime your saucepans and get ready for the full UEA.

Dos and Don'ts What to say and what not to say to people when arriving at

UEA ... Don 't say: " UEA's well known for Its beautiful architecture. " Do say: " Nice concrete." Don 't say: " I've heard campus food Is very nutritious and appetising. " Do say: " Let 's go hunting before we turn to cannaballsm." Don 't say: " I've got a boyfriend/ girlfriend at home." Do say: " Fancy a snog? " Don 't say: " All this spilt alcohol has made my shoes stick to the LCR danceftoor so I can 't move. " Do say: " I can 't move as I am entranced by your beauty. Fancy a snog? " Don 't say: " Where can I collect my loan?" Do say: "So how much debt are you in?" Don 't say: " I miss my mum 's delicious home cooking. " Do say: " Pass me another pot noodle."

1n now ou • • • Moving into halls? Rosie Hayward offers you three ways to break down the barriers in the first few days of student living lcook a meal I IPub Crawll Can't cook, won't cook? Place such thoughts far from your mind, and volunteer to be the head chef of the corridor for the night. Students are always hungry, and instead of the typical diet of economy food, you can be everyone's favourite corridormate by developing your latent talel}t for all things culinary: In truth you don't need to be Ainsley Harriot for your meal to be a success; the food is only a small part of the getting to know you process. Gathering your new found friends together for a meal will hopefully encourage good conversation as you sit.down to your cordon bleu meal. Well, a la carte might be taking it a bit too far - your best bet is to go for something simple that can be enjoyed by all. Stir fry always work well, just put a little oil into a wok, find some veggies, and cook for 10 minutes or so. The vegetarians can savour this option and you can add meat (try pork or chicken, but make sure you brown them in the pan before adding the vegetables) for the carnivores. Boil some noodles up and voila, you have a meal fit for a king. Well a hungry student anyway! By cooking, you will remain in the good books of everyone and hopefully avoid the task of washing up! Equally if the cooking all goes horribly wrong then you will have fond memories of evacuating the entire block of your building as the fire brigade come to extinguish your slight kitchen mishap But above all be adventurous: if nothing else it gives you the chance to use that newly acquired student cookery book that sells so well this time of year. Believe me, you will never use it again.

The first few weeks at university will no doubt be filled with offers to go on the ubiquitous pub crawl. But before you join every society in the hope of a liquid breakfast, lunch and dinner, consider checking out the pubs of the city with your flatmates. There is no better way to break the ice than getting plastered together. Okay, so the next morning you will wake up with a hangover that even George Best would find unusual, but at least you will have lots of funny memories (hopefully!). If not you can have the fun of suffering everybody constantly ribbing you about your indiscretions for the next year. Uving on campus means you can start at the Union bar, and sup a few beers while taking

"While copius amounts of alcohol could lead to evening of revelry, snogging any of your corridormates could lead to a year embarassment" advantage of the cheap price on your ale. After that take a quick walk along to Earl ham or Unthank Road and you will come across a multitude pubs all waiting to cater for your inebriation requirements (The Mitre, The York Tavern, The Rose Tavern, The Unthank Arms or the Mad Moose, to name but a few). And of course you can argue that this is all highly educational as you are learning about the surrounding area while you stagger from pllb to

pub increasingly unsteadily as the night progresses. Just remember that while copious amounts of alcohol can lead to an evening of revelry, snogging any of your flatmates in the early weeks of term could lead to a year of embarrassment to follow. You have been warned!

IDrinking gamesl Okay, board games were never that entertaining. As a child, you invariably lost half the pieces and the board would normally go flying half way through the match when someone got just a bit too carried away on discovering they were the last one to pass 'Go' and collect £200. But for a night in with a difference the drinking game becomes legendary. After a few innocent games of Twister with the added attraction of a shot of your favourite alcoholic beverage with every spin of the

wheel, you will be fully prepared for a night of getting to know you debauchery. To add to the cosiness factor you can all pack in to one bedroom along the corridor, and let the games beginI Admittedly, everyone is bound to be a bit nervous of revealing their most intimate secrets in a alcohol heavy game of truth or dare at first. But if you want to avoid this route to scandal and intrigue and just get blind drunk then there are plenty of games to keep you occupied. Good choices include, 21s, Drink While You Think, or Pub Golf - if you get round an 18 hole course you either have a stomach of steel or will shortly be heading to the Norwich and Norfolk hospital for some pleasant stomach pumping. At least when the games are over you have the comfort of knowing that your room is only along the corridor and you are guaranteed some sleep before the cleaners come in and wake you from your slumber.

Norwich may not be renowned as a clubbing capital, but it does have its moments. Whether you like to bop to the latest dance tunes, or prefer more of an indie mix, the City has somewhere for you to strut your stuff. Concrete tells you where it's at. .. Monday I ft

~ON Ikon has undergone a number of

facelifts in recent times, but the fundamental aspects of the club have remained the same. Nearly everybody has visited an Ikon, or Ritzy as it was formerly known, at some point somewhere in the country. And the memory is usually a very blurry one, as when there students generally drink a lot, dance a lot, and then stumble home, waking up the next day remembering very little. Located conveniently in the heart of Tombland, Ikon is an excellent place to end a pub crawl. The student night changed a number of limes last

" You will find yourself dancing shoulder to shoulder with many a sweaty young specimen at MOJO's on the bizarrely shaped dancefloor" year, finally settling as Club Chad. What is guaranteed, however is the chance to dance the night away whatever your taste in music. The club itself is one of the biggest in Norwich, with a large, open ground floor offering a sizeable dance floor and those all-important podiumsnty of space to move on the dance floor, as well as those all important podiums, and of course two large bars. Downstairs you'll get a wide range of music, varying from Stardust to Dexy's Midnight Runners, with a bit of Will Smith thrown in for good measure. Upstairs is not quite as large, but there is still ample room, and again two bars! You'll also hear some of the finest indie anthems from the last few decades, so you can get your rocks off to all the old favourites . The atmosphere is based around

having a good time and it seems to be infecfous. Ikon is one of those classic clubs which is guaranteed to provide some fun.

Tuesday

LIQUID

If a wild but not too expensive night out in town is what you want, Liquid on a Tuesday nighl.is the ideal destination. Liquid's student night is renowned throughout UEA ~s one of the cheapest and best-attended nights out in the city. This is a true student night out if ever there was one, .vith free entry before 11 pm with proof of student status (preferably your UEA card). Unfortunately, if you can't prove that you lay around campus all day you will be turned away just in case you are a nasty local intent on threatening us vulnerable students. Drink prices are also minimaf, with all pints, bottles and shots £1 each, but its worth remembering that mixers cost an ex1ra SOp. As you can imagine, once a copious amount of cheap alcohol has been imbibed the atmosphere on the dance floor can be somewhat manic but at least you don't get stuck to the floor and you can be sure of bumping into lots of people you know, white staggering around in a drunken haze. And if you're after something a little more subdued, there are plenty of places to sit, although it is best to secure seats early as they tend to get occuped very quickly. Whether dancing or relaxing you will be treated to a mix of all the latest chart sounds as well as some retro favouiites from the Sixties, Seventies, and Eighties. However, if you have an aversion to crowds it's worth remembering that Liquid can get extrellely busy. Due to its popularity there are often queues

outside, especially at the beginning and end of term so its worth getting there early to get down to that pumping dancing beat!

that you will need to have some strong surgical soap back at your room on campus, as it will take at least three days of scrubbing to get the lovely ink stamp off your hand.

Wednesday

MOJO'S

Had enough of those cheesy pop and indie hits of yesteryear? Well Mojo's offers something a little different to your average club night, and while you will still find the booze flowing freely across the bar, the music has a seventies funk flava. Poked behind the back of Boss Hoggs on Prince of Wales road, the Wednesday night extravaganza that is Superfly attracts a broad cross-section of UEA's population. The club is not exceptionally big, and you will find yourself dancing shoulder to shoulder with many a sweaty young specimen on the bizarrely shaped dance floor. The eclectic range of music on offer means that you can groove to a mix1ure including James Brown, Jamiroquai and a whole host of others that you will no doubt never have heard of before. Once you have managed to focus through the smoky atmosphere that lingers in the club you will locate the amply supplied bar, which can normally

"Be it vodkas, beers or the consumption of a whole vineyard you must come prepared for an LCR. You will never be able to dance to Steps otherwise." be relied upon to provide a special offer or two on some of your favourite brands of alcoholic beverage. The bar can become a bit of a rugby scrum at times, so it is worth bearing in mind that you can nip upstairs to Boss Hoggs and buy your · drinks in there instead and just take them back inside again. This coming and going between the two bars continues for most of the night until you hit the early hours of the morning and the sore feet and head begin to take their toll. At this point you will find most of the cool clientele heading back up to Boss Hoggs to take advantage of the chilled out feel and sofas and chairs to sit on, which Mojo's doesn't provide on account of its small size. The only other thing that it is worth bearing in mind before spending a night in one of Norwich's funkiest clubs is

Thursday

LCR

lt may seem premature to hear this now, having only just unpacked your mismatched cutlery and Tesco's Economy Sausages, but the LCR experience will stay with you long after you leave UEA. Be it the cut price booze, the late bar, or your new found ability to pull the least attractive of people, it is pretty safe to say that the LCR IS Thursday night! Let's start with the location. The LCR takes place in, well, the LCR. You know where- the plac& that you queued in for hours, surrounded by unfamiliar, slightly ominous looking people, waiting for the keys to your luxury suite with wall-to-wall brown carpeting (You'll be grateful later on after your first projectile vomiting sesh as brown hides a multitude of sins!). Not very impressed? Okay, so it has all the charm of an airport departure lounge, but don't worry, things always look better in the dark. Besides it's a pretty safe bet you'll be wasted by then so it seems fairly unlikely that interior decorating is going to be the main thing on your mind! Split between the LCR and The Hive you have the benefit of two bars. However, the key to enjoyment at this main event in your social calendar is to drink before you got Be it a couple of vodkas, beers or a the bottled equivalent of a whole vineyard, you MUST come prepared - that is unless you posse·s s the amazing ability to 'dance' to Steps stone cold sober. The LCR can only be good if you are able to block out the reality that surrounds you. Once there the bar will beckon, although be patient when waiting to gel served. There are never enough bar people to serve you and the crowd that gather there are like hounds baying for blood. Be prepared for spilt drinks and certain physical injury. The worst culprits for such grievous bodily harm are usually the people who measure their masculinity by the amount they finally manage to consume (The lesser spotted Kappa/ Ben Sherman clothed 'lad')- Music is split between cheesy pop in the main LCR and more hardcore fare in the Hive, so depending on your tastes there is enough to satisfy most people. As a result the LCR attracts a wide range of UEA students so we'll have none of your townies here. Most of all though, you can strut your stuff with your mates and perhaps even manage to be the one person who can walk from one side of the dance floor to the other without having your feet stick to the floor. Either way, enjoy!

Friday

HY's

After Thursday night's japery, you might appreciate seeing a few non-student faces around you, and if you must insist on spending yet another night on the town, Hys could be the venue for tonight. Or maybe that should be spelled 'tonite', because that's the kind of place Hys is. But where is this establishment?, I hear you ask. Well, it's in Tombland, and for want of a mOfe precise description, that means it's sandwiched

somewhere in between Norwich Cathedral, Ikon (if your Monday memories are clear enough for that name to ring a bell) and Pizza One, Pancakes Tool, a fine purveyor of the aforementioned pizza and pancakes. In other words, it's centrally located and you should have no trouble finding it. Just follow that pumping party beat and the sounds of happy revellers. Queues don't tend to be that bad, so you won't have to shiver miserably out in the cold for too long. Once you have got past the (fairly affable) bouncers and into the cornucopia of glittering delights that is Hys, a spangly sight will greet your eyes. There are neony things all over the place, and the floor is made of glass in most places which is sort of disconcerting if you're drunk, but at least there's a long stretch of wall and lots of corndrs to sit in when you're tired. The music is provided by one of those DJs who like to splice their chart hits together into one seamless whole. Be prepared for lots of ABBA, Will Smith and

"Manhattan's is dedicated to pla~·n_g serious dance music and celebri IJJ's such as Danny Rampling visited t e altar and mixed on the decks" Britney Spears - unlike other clubs, Hys doesn't make claims about playing indie. You have been warned. The DJ may also be quite talkative, so be prepared for your dancing to be interrupted. As far as clientele goes, there didn't seem to be any particularly handsome specimens the night I was there, but who knows, you may strike lucky..The ambience is fairly pleasant, although you are well advised to keep a smile on your face at all times, unless, like me, you wish to be accosted by a

series of complete strangers saying, "Cheer up darling•, which is always annoying. We live in a democracy, and have freedom of facial expression, don't we? On the bright side, Hys can be free to get into if you get hold of a flyer, which can often be found in shops around the city. Failing that, it's

Saturday WATERFRONT ~~~::r~;~ek big up to massive lbeeza stylee party choons in the rather more fromaged of Norwich's night spots, you might find it worthwhile to escape from the likes of Phats and the Bigfooted Alice DJ. If you're more into the popular beat combo armed with guitar, bass and drums than one chap/ chappess equipped with a fancy computer programme and a bird with a booming voice going "oooh baby, you make me feel so pure/ horny/ high" (delete as applicable), then the Waterfront's Saturday night Meltdown shindigs could be the place for you. Situated, as its name suggests, on the banks of the River Wensum, the Waterfront is housed in a converted warehouse, and had its interior design done by the chap who created Manchester's legendary Hacienda club. In the main downstairs room you, the glorious punter, can do the Mane dance or the Morrissey wiggle to all the latest erm... •post Britpop" hits, while enjoying some of the classics of yesteryear.

There is the odd speed garage night in the Studio, which does · seem rather strange given the rather more guitarcentric music downstairs.The crowd and atmosphere does tend to vary depending on the time of year, but there are generally a lot of students, plus the Norwich floppy fringe and corduroy trousers contingent. You'll even find the odd stilleto'd and Top Shopped clubber trying to come to terms with the Waterfront's notorious sticky floor and doing a pogo rather than your average shelf stacking arse wobbler. By the way, it is important when attending the Waterfront to remember never to wear white. The UV lighting means that any white clothing will glow horribly, even it's actually an undergarment, oh yes; and the aforementioned sticky floor will do its best to ruin your favourite virginally pure little number.

A number of celebrity DJs have visited the altar, Danny Rampling and Scott Bond among the most recent, and only the most credible dance music is mixed. Throughout the week there is a vast mix1ure of music from bangin' drum & bass to the finest swingin' soul. But the Sabbath is reserved for the Sunday Service. While most people are resting to get ready for the week ahead you can dance the night away to some of the finest house tunes. And although the name suggests a religious flavour to the night, you will find more than red wine and bread available at the bar. Stretching over two floors, Manhattan's is an intimate club with a few places to explore. There's a strange layout to the club and you find yourself looking prettv lost, despite the fact that Manhattan's is actually quite small. The fi·st floor is

usually packed playing all the popular dance tunes, where as upstairs is more of a chill out area with some more alternative music for your listening pleasure. The atmosphere concentrates more on the dance moves than the alcohol, and people are there mainly to boogie the night away rather than socialise with groups of friends . But the atmosphere is friendly, and there is room to sit down if you should tire of throwing shapes on the

Manhattan's is a minority in Norwich's club land which can pride itself on playing innovative dance music, and its underground connections: Manhattan's is associated with Norwich's only pirate radio station, Style FM. Overall, if you are looking for somewhere bit more serious to dance than the YMCA, then Manhattan's is the place for you. See The Event Listings to check out what dance night is on at the club.

Once a radical hotbed of socialist activity, your new university has seen a few changes in its time. Jimmy Ginster takes you through the life and times of UEA ... ack in the early Sixties, before the hippy thing had taken hold and when the farmers of Norfolk were content to sit around in fields asking each other for lights, the good citizens of Norwich decided it was about time they had a university. For centuries they had gazed longingly across the tens at the gleaming academic spires of Cambridge, but now it was their turn. A bunch of well meaning individuals, together with the local councils and a few wealthy sponsors, evicted a few reticent golfers from the local municipal course, and lo - the U~ campus was born. But in keeping with the Norfolk desire to Mdo differenr - now enshrined in the Universi1y's coat of arms - the founders enlisted modernist architect Denys Lasdun to construct the buildings to hold their seat of learning. And do different he did, constructing what many people consider to be some of the finest post-war buildings - but the sneering academics of Cambridge (and most sane people) consider ugly. One group of people at least er;~joyed the architect's work: the campus builders. With the first batch of students living in Norfolk Terrace, work was still going on elsewhere, and to wind down from a hard day's worl< the builders had a habit of spying on students in their rooms. Eager not to disrupt the fine views from the residences, the University had failed to put any curtains in the rooms, giving the peeping Toms a clear gaze in to hundreds of bedrooms.

Other buildings have also caused problems for UEA students. Although they glisten like pearls in the midday sun, when Nelson Court and Constable Terrace first opened, their "architect designed" features caused nothing but problems. The space-age shower cubicles defied gravity, and prevented water from draining away; and the energy-saving air recycling system pumped cooking fume-s back into the building.

he University mandarins have not always been so tolerant towards many students' favourite activties. Back in 1966, the squares in the Registry decided to take a tough line against student sex, issuing an edict declaring that "any student found in bed with a member of the opposite sex will be sent down immediately." Ignoring the obvious double entendre, it would be nice to think that the wily students of the day got round the rules via romantic soujourns by the lack and in various other shady corners of campus but sadly no records exist to prove one way or the other.
