Amazing room size and luxuriously large kitchens in the flats (block A). Love the double bed and ensuite. Wish there were lifts, as walking up 6 flights of stairs with loads of shopping isn't fun! Was messed around loads at the beginning of the year and were put up in temporary accommodation. Living on a building site has been difficult plus without the hub being open (which will host washing machines, computers and food outlets) the experience hasn't been as good as I would of hoped. 4 washing machines between 400 people is not ideal. Hopefully after the construction is finished and the hub is open it will be an amazing accommodation for future students. (wish it was the case for me!!!)

I lived in H block and the houses are nice and modern with huge, well equipped kitchens. You only share the bathroom with one other person which is nice and the bathrooms aren't wet rooms like the en suite accommodating on campus. Location is good and it's very easy to get into town as well as being relatively close to central campus. However, living with 11 other people makes cooking and keeping the kitchen tidy difficult and in my opinion living with 11 other people is too many, especially if you don't get on well. I'd say Turing houses are good if you want a loud typical fresher experience and to go out every night but to avoid them if you're slightly less social. Turing also seems to be filled with stereotypical loud inconsiderate rich kids who are very clique-y and show lots of disrespect to staff such as the cleaners (but that's just my experience). In hindsight I wish I saved the extra 1k a year and picked Park Wood.

Double beds and clean, large kitchens which are great for pres and close to central campus. Pretty and loads more space than every other accommodation. They're also new.

Amazing big rooms, clean and spacious. However the doors break all the time, not too much of a problem though as they get fixed very quickly.

Its really luxurious and the rooms are spacious but the common room has nothing intresting about it! A big TV should be added in the common room for everyone to use and gather around. Even of we have our own tv in the rooms. Since it is the most expensive college, more facilities should be added!

Really spacious, massive rooms, and such a large difference in price between ensuite and shared - but you only share with one person

Never been so impressed with an accommodation! The thing which made me choose Turing over Keynes was the bathroom! The bathroom is incredible and is not a wet room (which floods in keynes) it is a well build shower which is more hygienic and easier to clean. The lighting in the rooms is good and the rooms are very modern and neutral colours. The kitchens are bright and spacious aswell. Very pleased.

It is a good hall for the price you pay (maybe a little too much), you don't socialise that much with other houses/flats though.

Nice clean! Good rooms little pricey for what they are! Especially when comparing to other universities and in the 9 bedroom flats there isn't enough space in the kitchen :(

There are some positives such as good location, nice bathrooms and bedrooms and its nice to be on a floor as opposed to in a hall. However there is a constant sewage smell across all 3 floors and the space in the communal area and kitchen is so poorly designed. There are no surfaces to prepare food in the kitchen and two cupboards per person is not enough to store all food - let alone all the pots and pans needed. Two small sinks and a tiny drying rack is not enough for between 12 people. We have no space to cook or clean so many of us rely on ready meals as it is just too stressful to try to cook something proper with that amount of people in that amount of space. There is almost too much space in the living room which is such a shame as it would be much better to have used that as a bigger kitchen. Our door had a crack in when we got here which has grown further. The glass is now completely smashed and it has not been fixed for over a week.

Fantastic, spacious room in Block A with a gorgeous en-suite. The view from the kitchen (Canterbury, can see the Cathedral!) especially at night or in the morning is absolutely gorgeous. It's pretty far from everything but it's a nice walk to lectures, seminars, etc but obviously this is a downside when you're carrying several bags of shopping, but most people just order now from Tesco or Asda so there are ways around it. All in all, it is an absolutely stunning accommodation and I am glad to be living in it... even if it does cost 1.5k more than my loan aha (but it does include a TV and a licence, which is always a great thing!) Just make sure to get a part-time job when you're here though and it should be no big deal.

The houses have too many people in them. If you're prepared to share with 11 other people, then go ahead. With so many people comes clashing and arguments. I have encountered some catty people. The house will never be clean/stay clean due to the number of people sharing one small kitchen. There's not enough kitchen cupboard or fridge freezer space for the amount of people. Rental agreements were constantly being fringed by other members of the household. If you like a very vibrant and active social life, then go ahead. But I found that strangers were brought in to the house almost every night (which housemates MUST ask other housemates' permission to do so - I was never asked) which made me uncomfortable. And the noise level was unbearable. If you're lucky enough to be housed with the loveliest people in the world, go ahead, but you may not be that lucky. If you're looking for the ultimate fresher experience of drinking, hangovers, dirty living space, then be my guest...

Was messed around loads at the beginning of the year and were put up in temporary accommodation. Living on a building site has been difficult plus without the hub being open (which will host washing machines, computers and food outlets) the experience hasn't been as good as I would of hoped. 4 washing machines between 400 people is not ideal. Hopefully after the construction is finished and the hub is open it will be an amazing accommodation for future students. (wish it was the case for me!!!)

The Hub hasn't been opened yet and we have no information about it; which contains our washing machines and study hubs. Cleaner never really cleans our bathrooms properly. Does his best on a small time limit though. Social aspect is ok as we are right on campus and you can't argue with how big the rooms are/kitchen (which means you'll always host people's birthdays and parties etc). Hopefully it will be better managed next year as this is only the first year.

our hall was not built so I can not give a rating for that. The kitchen/common room is okay but I do not like socialising in a kitchen too often, also our heater would not turn off so that made the kitchen very hot! Although it is a very nice accommodation, it's like living in a hotel.
