Pinewood is roughly a ten minute walk from uni, and 20/30 min walk to town. It's situated near a housing estate and a park, so it's a nice area to be in. Also, behind Pinewood there are a bunch of student houses so there are lots of university students in the neighbourhood. There is about 8 parking spaces behind Pinewood so it's ideal if you want to bring your car (although the parking permit is around £250). If you don't want to pay for that or have family visiting, there are spaces by the park which are a maximum of 2 hours, or if you walk onto the main road (College Lane), there are lots of free parking spaces, but it's just a bit further to walk to. Pinewood isn't like your usual university halls, in the sense that you don't have 'flats'. The layout is more like a hotel, there is just loads of doors along the corridor. It's shared facilities, and they are nice! Much bigger than en suite facilities, plus you have cleaners for shared areas.

Student Review: 2.4 /5

Pinewood House isn't all the bad for £99 per week. However the lack of decent cleaning in communal areas is shocking. Showers always full of hair so you end up flooding the place, mould throughout the bathrooms. Everyone in the house can hear everything. No communal area due to the lack of housing as people have to share rooms. Overall Pinewood should never be your choice of living but if you get it, good luck!
