    Virginstudent.co.uk (I think) is okay. Has content provided by the various student unions on what's happening (it's not comprehensive, though!) Also has online diary, address book, email and disk storage (which you can share). These are cool ideas for folks who have to use different machines all the time (possibly even different Internet services) as students tend to.

    Added bonus for me was, when I signed up I got a free Cinema ticket. (Gladiator for free, not a bad deal).

    Don't know if I'd recommend using this sort of service. I can see it being very useful, if you make a point of using it, and a waste of time/space if it's only one of many that you use.

    Check it out for yerself.

    studentuncovered.co.uk is ok - oh but dont let your mates put your name in the dating section!

    Yes, that was me!

    No, honestly, you should have taken him up on his offer but said money up front.

    If you're gonna be an escort then you should be paid for it. As soon as he hands over the money, go into the bathroom to do whatever you women do in there for hours and climb out of the window or something.

    Easy money!

    I found a really helpful site, written by students called unofficial-guides.com.
    www.unofficial-guides.com

    It is great, and gives all the social info. etc. that is so lacking in the university prosepectuses (sp?) Go to it!
