Very close to everything you need at uni - local and big supermarkets, shops, bus stop, pubs and bars, nightclubs, a cinema, all kinds of restaurants and take aways, and basically everything else you'd find in a town centre. You get used to taking a bus up to campus quite soon, so the benefits of being right in the city centre are well worth it, not to mention that i'm saving around £700-1500 living here compared to campus.

I had a great time, but the social life isn't as good because it's mixed with bath college students

A little pricey for what it is, but being in the centre of town is great.

When I found out I'd been put into JWC I was initially gutted. I thought that being off campus I'd miss out on the 1st yr uni experience. However, now I am so glad I ended up here and would defo choose again. The location is AMAZING! We're about a 2 min walk from the centre so all the shops are really close, I joined a gym in town a minute's walk away (which is better and quieter than the uni gym) I can go running past the sites and big sainsburies is about a 5 min walk (which is much cheaper and better than the shops on campus). I can't reiterate how much better life is in the city. The bus ride up to campus is a 30 min journey (including walking/waiting for bus) but I think it's worth the city life experience. The negatives..bathrooms are a bit grim(!) but the rooms are lovely and quite big! (Much bigger than quads!), it's a shame there's no communal space but our flats just socialise in the kitchens and it's not a problem. Would thoroughly recommend

There is no common room and the only social space is a small kitchen. Pretty disappointing experience really, I would not recommend living here to anyone.

In general John wood court is quite correct: in the citycenter (near bus station), social space (court), a own laundry, staff available 24h, not to many people in a flat, premises quite new and modern But its far from the uni, takes time to go there, there is no common room, no cafe or snack bar, kitchen in some flat are really small, people arent very gathering, wifi is bad in court, most of flats have to share toilet and bathroom

Great location in town, everything is in the vicinity. Bus stop is just around the corner. You get to meet a lot of people from different places as the majority are international students. Bathroom facilities could be better xx

Amazing accommodation and is walking distance from almost everywhere in the centre of Bath! The rooms are large and spacious and as a whole, the accommodation is fantastic! The only downside is a lack of social space however most people just gather in kitchens
