while living here on my first year it was like living on a building site. Where I stayed before was quiet and right up the other end of the corridor to the main door. After living here for 2 months at the end of my course I can honestly say I wouldn't recommend. The rooms have been updated and are spacious but the noise at night and even early hours of the morning from inconsiderate neighbours have put me in a situation. Not only have I been exhausted most mornings they then move a load of freshers into this part of the building who, as they have lots of time off do not appreciate that there are still people that need sleep. One night I was kept up till 2am while a party went off downstairs.. this including loud music, screaming girls and a lot of stomping of heels. It has ruined my experience here. I really am actually very disappointed that people aren't told when they move in that there are other people, other years of their degree living here.
Harston house is cheap for Cambridge however because it's nursing halls and cheap it doesn't seem to get the same attention that the rest of halls do, it's never involved in halls wars or any events regarding the university. It hasn't been updates since probably the 60s or even painted and the kitchens show this, but you meet great friends there and it's perfect for placement got nurses
