During the academic term (2019-2020) I stayed here which I would say by the end of it. Im really glad I did decide to have confirmed going to this accomodation. However, there are problems which I believe you should be aware of before choosing to live here which is your priorities. I wanted to live somewhere that was social and busy but I needed my own bathroom. Further I wanted to live somewhere that felt luxury which this definitely delivers. Although the rooms are smaller than the other accomodations, further from campus (not a problem for, me) showers are especially small and the common room is bland - in context to there being too open space. This isn't necessarily a huge problem yet, with cheap furniture didn't make it feel like it was worth the value on top you don't get supplied a toaster, storage space needed to be bigger and the walls are especially thin. So, if you are hoping to live in a accomodation with less sound pollution, I wouldn't stay here.

Student Review: 3.4 /5
By member1073978 On 5th December 22 verified Verified student

As the most expensive flat on campus, it does have some of the best facilities on campus. It is worth noting that it is only a 5 minute walk from Copse to Essex Business School and 15 minutes to the furthest ivor Crown, but it is worth noting that because Copse has the best facilities and the largest kitchen, the communal kitchen is the place to be for any kitchen party, especially in The Oaks building. If you are a quiet person then The Copse may not be for you. I called security twice because the kitchen was too noisy but the silence only lasted a week each time. Also The Copse has 24h security and is staffed at all times so you can ask for help if you have any problems.
