On another note, the brutal architecture isn’t very pleasant to look at, the food is overpriced and of bad quality. The facilities are not well taken care of. Internet quality is also very bad and slow here. I wonder how they can execute scientific applications with the level of quality that is there currently. I would suggest going elsewhere.

Felt we should have got a lot more for our money compared to others, i am moving into campus accommodation next year that is far superior for the same price. Location wise, right above spar, 15mins away from either end of campus, can be noise after a night out, but only had an issue when I left my window open. Porters will literally do anything for you to help you out and the cleaners come everyday (pretty much). Wifi can be hit and miss depending on the room that's why we preferred ResNet (ethernet cable) to Eduroam (wifi). Only got a small kitchen for 8 people, didn't get a sofa or anything which made us feel short changed (see first point).

A great place to keep your head down and have a great time without the constant noise and interruptions living right on top of all the action.

New, clean and comfortable. Very safe and beautiful location, just a 7 minute walk from campus. Laundrette and Pavillion are very close by. Regular cleaning of common rooms and kitchens, flats typically close and a wonderful experience. No big problems have been faced, and any insignificant problems were reported and dealt with immediately by management.

Expensive, but nice and clean. Has a bit of a rat problem, but unfortunately the University refuses to get rid of my flatmates ¬_¬

Amazing halls, massive kitchens and living area. Double beds are the best thing, makes sharing a bathroom with my neighbour fine.

I was in the townhouse and believe me it was the best experience of my life. Met some amazing people, and had the most fun ever. Pre drinks in the townhouse kitchens was also a plus.
