Living in the college was overall a fantastic experience, either breakfast or dinner is included in the price and the entire college is kept very well maintained. That being said, there are no social spaces for residents apart from the dinner hall (closed at night) meaning residents must congregate in the hallways or less than generously sized rooms when socailising.. It is also worth mentioning that cooking facilities include a singular microwave for each 7 man hall. That is all. There is however 2 showers per hall and one toilet, and more than enough washing machines and driers, which is generous.

Good value for money- but would suggest getting the £1000 meal deal- kitchenette is broom cupboard size or smaller so you really wont be able to cook at all. Would have preferred being self-catered as a proper kitchen would have made it a lot easier to socialise as a communal area- my flat all have to squeeze together in the hallways or into our rooms so no chance of sitting on an actual chair. If money was not an issue I would have chosen Tyler or Keynes :) But Rutherford has meant that my student loan pretty much covers everything this year so no complaints :)

If you are looking to socialize then this is not the accommodation for you. The reason being is because there is no kitchen and usually the kitchen is where everybody gathers round to get to know each other.

Piss poor accommodation, at least 20 years outdated, no kitchen (advertised as including a kitchenette which was their way of saying microwave) forcing you to eat at the disgustingly overpriced dining hall.. The dorm staff regularly go into your room and "confiscate" possessions to never see them again

One of the cheapest accommodation on campus, 8 students per corridor with 2 showers, housekeeping coming twice a week but the general state of the corridor may be a bit rough. rooms with a sink, and enough place to put all your stuff. good ambiance,and in front of library

The actual hall is good, if kind of ugly (the rooms are good size etc). However the "Kitchen" space is stupidly small and everything broke. Its nice eating with your friends in the dining hall, but the hours it is open could be improved and better choices would be good.

Nice halls. Cleaner used to wash our dirty dishes everyday even though it wasn't her job to. Bathroom times didn't clash ever between 8 people. Amazing. Free breakfast however only 1 person in our halls woke up early for that. The timings are a bit early for students. Otherwise amazing college. Make sure you don't smoke in the room or you get charged £50 for smoking and if you cover the smoke detector you get charged £200 usually if caught. Can be £300 too

Its awful, don't live here. They only give you a kettle and a microwave to cook with unless you want to buy the questionable dining room food. You can only socialise in each others rooms or in the tiny corridor and the building itself is a drab maze. Worst accommodation at UKC minus Elliot. The only good part is that you are in between keynes, darwin and the library so you are pretty central.
