I was in old Lafrowda (read: twelve people crammed into a prison-like flat). The University disregarded flatmate preferences completely when assigning people to this accommodation, so a misogynist xenophobic a** ended up in a flat filled with girls from abroad and ruining their life. Not a very common occurrence I would imagine, but it does happen and the University is incapable of helping.
Lafrowda was amazing, it was lively and social, and filled with so many lovely people. I loved my flat and room, which also had a gorgeous view. The kitchen was spacious and modern, we spent a lot of time in there socialising as a flat, my experience couldn’t have been any better.
It's been great so far, I'm pretty sure it's one of the more social halls, it being self-catered and everyone having to use the kitchen at some point. Everyone's pretty friendly, and it stays pretty clean, with some cleaning materials provided.
One of the more expensive halls, but to be expected for any accommodation that provides an en-suite at any university. Light, practical rooms with great facilities of a desk, draws, wardrobe, under-bed storage etc. The en-suite is so convenient and easy to maintain. The kitchens space is great with sofas and a coffee table for social situations. Cupboard space and fridge/freezer and cooker are based on the number in the flat which works well. Opportunity to be a very social block if you're in a block with people that also want to socialise.
Amazing accommodation (felt like I was staying in a hotel). Brilliant location. Ensuite appreciated. The best location on campus and loved frequent wanders round the back by the duck pond where you feel a million miles away from University. Bit expensive though and I wasn't put with the best of people.
