hahah that's what happened to us too (Cal Poly SLO) They had everyone in the holiday inn down the street.... I felt sorry for those people who had to hike back and forth for crappy food on campusjulianfang said:LMU (loyola marymount) had too many students about 6-7 years ago and not enough student housing or off campus housing. About 200 students ended up living in at the hilton three blocks away for a year :lol: :lol:
They had maid service every other day and could use their meal plan for room service :thumbup:
I am a Georgia Tech student, but during the previous semester, fall semester I cross-registered with GT and GSU and since GT dorms suck, I applied for GSU dorms and got them since in their eyes (GSU Housing) I was taking classes with their school (GSU) and thus eligible for dorms. Also, the way it works is that you pay during fall semester for both fall and spring, so I did. However, this semester I'm only taking classes at GT and since I never check my GSU dorms mailbox I never knew that I got a letter that I'm being kicked out of the GSU dorms because according to their policy if you're not taking classes at GSU you aren't eligible for dorms, even though I already paid in full at Fall semester for both Fall and Spring. So yesterday at 8pm I open the door to my room and see a letter on the floor. I pick it up and it states that I need to be moved out about 5 hours ago, and if I don't move out and turn in my key they'll change the locks on me. I called my dad and told him what was going on, he said that he'll come by with the Expedition bring some baskets and help me move out. It didn't take us long to move all my stuff out since I don’t have any kitchen appliances or food, so it was mainly my computer, speakers, clothes, and books. I got home around midnight and put all the baskets in the pool room, took a shower and went to bed. This morning I woke up and my dad drove me back to campus and I was on a hunt for a place to live. I wanted to get an apartment but they wouldn't lease for less then 6 months, and there aren't even 3 months left in the semester. I needed a place to stay, that would be EXTREMLY close to school since, **cough cough** my license got suspended about 3 months ago, and I wont get it back until mid-May. [/end cough]. If I had my car I wouldn't have a problem commuting, but since I don't, location was crucial. Luckily enough there is a Holiday Inn right across from campus and the manager there was more then willing to help me out in the weird situation I got myself into. I don't really need any special room services, or meal plans since I always eat out anyways. It's all about location for me right now, since the main means of transportation I have are my two legs to get to the campus bus and the campus bus to take me to class.....All this while my car is sitting in my parents driveway only to be driven so often that the battery won't die.BoeserBlick said:BTW, why ARE you gonna be living in a hotel?!?!
