After hearing rumors from freshers week of being able to get on to the roof of my uni halls, i was desperate to get up there.
On my first search for this holy grail it seemed that it was just a myth.
But one morning after a night out i was determined to find it, i already knew that the doors were locked at two of the staircases so i tried the 3rd, middle one. The door swung open to reveal a place i'd never seen before. It was the mechanics room for the elevators. it was pitch black but i managed to stumble past the clanging machinery and generators to find a tiny staircase and door.
It opened and the 5am sunlight filled the room, i had made it!
I can leave Portsmouth a happy man.
After i told my mates of the discovery we decided to get on another halls roof that night.
This one was easy, unhitch the window and jump down.
