Overall great area, could use a common room for socializing however instead of only bedrooms as some poor sod has to be made as sacrifice every time people wish to chill. Food is located at a 10 minute walk away, which is great. The actual quality of the food however, is poor. Imagine taking all the reasonably decent parts of school/hospital food, and throwing it out the window. Not very healthy options as a whole, makes it a struggle to get enough protein, with the portion sizes leaving you hungry about an hour or two later as they're just practical carb fillers.The actual food is very, very bland as a whole too. Biggest notes are, for example, advertising a curry as a Korma yet having zero resemblance to the taste of an actual korma, just add the coconut flavour! Gravy has been very greasy at times also, pasta is often overcooked and desserts left out too long. Actual service of the staff is amazing, very friendly and chatty. Needs new chefs asap however!
Lovely accommodation, nice king-sized beds, all ensuite, big rooms. All the people I've met are lovely and very welcoming. You get a weekly cleaner for your room. Could do with more common space that has sofas but we just make do and go in each others rooms. The food at whites is ok however, it is all the way on campus which can often lead to students thinking 'I can't be bothered trekking all the way down there' especially when its cold or raining. However, there is a tesco just downstairs, as well as a papa johns and also another takeaway across the road. It is very close to the city centre.
