Sorry, I phrased my question incorrectly. One of the students I talked to mentioned that there were several entrances to Hastings (sort of like mini-complexes), and grumbled about having to go outside to get to some other part of Hastings. I was wondering if the basement is accessible from within all the entrances or if you have to leave your entrance and go to another in order to reach the basement.
Ah, okay, that makes sense. Thanks!
It doesn't really make sense. [curses under breath; stupid f-ing entryway system]
I think you can pick a room if your number is later, but if someone with a higher number comes and wants your room, they can take it.
Hmm... it appears that 249 isn't the ideal lottery number. I guess the fortune cookie I ate today was defective. It said: "the winds will bring good things your way." Bummer.
