The halls I live in are dated. They are bland, and dreary, and feel as if they have been sat in the same state for well over 10 years. Especially after visiting halls on the same campus and across the town, it really made me question the halls I'm living in. The kitchen is tiny, especially when it's supposed to be for 9 people to use, and yet there is only enough space for 6 seats, so not a lot of opportunity for socialising. My personal experience with halls has been bad, but that can only be put down to the people I am living with. Internet wise, its great, however, has some slight dead zones in certain areas.
Where do I start? On moving day I was under the impression that these "newer" building would be good quality (considering also the price). When I got there I couldn't help being disappointed. The closest thing to a common area is the incredibly small kitchen, with one sink, two ovens that could be mistaken for a child's toy, two grimy looking hobs, and the highest cupboards imaginable. As for the room itself, the wardrobe is fine, shelving is fine, desk is fine, the placement of every plug socket being ABOVE the desk is definitely not fine, and neither is the overall size of the room. WhenI got myself this room, I went for the en suite (I value my privacy), which can be compared to a dingy Travelodge bathroom. The shower is tiny (I'm quite large as well, so that wasn't a nice experience), the toilet roll holder (if you can call it that) is pretty much touching the floor, and the sink isn't big enough to bathe an ant. Not worth it. Finally, I can't connect my xbox to the f****** WiFi.
