I stayed in Coggan House during the 2019-2020 year. Small flats (2-3 occupants) and that's how I liked it so a good plus there. Only had to share a bathroom and a kitchen so cleaning was minimal which was nice. Only downside was that there was no social area for any of the flats. A living room would have been nice but you can't have everything. Location was excellent as well - right next to Canterbury East and 2 minutes from Augustine House and Library. 1 minute from ALDI and about a 10 minute walk from city centre and Wincheap shops. All in all, brilliantly located. I am returning this coming year (2020-2021) and will be living in Runcie House.
I applied late (june time) and so i applies for accommodation around july time so i ended up with my third choice and i asked for standard but ended up getting a large room. however I am actually quite happy, the large room is really good, however it is only a single bed! I stayed in Runcie House. With a large room you only share with 1 other person, so I got put with another girl, and she’s ones of my best friends! I have a large wardrobe and a decent desk, beds are okay but i got a mattress topper. we share a bathroom but it’s never been a problem, tbf we don’t see eachother that often bc of uni and work. the kitchen is tiny but we get a lot of cupboard and fridge space, our hob and fridge is new! the bathroom is a bath and shower which is very clean. the best part of pin hill is it’s location. it’s 1 minute walk to the club chemistry, means you can pre drink til the last minute and no paying for taxis or cloak room. aldi is 2 mins walk away, the library is 5 mins away, uni is 15 min
No social or communal space unless you use the hallways and corridors. Flats are only 2 or 3 people in each in general so you are pretty much reliant on getting on with your 1 or 2 flat mates in comparison to having a larger number. However you only share kitchen and bathroom with small number of people which is good. Security are generally great.
