Most helpful review

A more relaxed college with less drinking which suits me. People are very welcoming and friendly! The cleaners and catering staff are interesting and interested in a personable way.

St. John´s is a lovely place to live. The community is great, people are very friendly, and you get supported very well. It´s a small college, so you get to know most people who are living there very quickly. The only downside is that there are often not enough study spaces, and it can be very loud and crowded and sometimes the working spaces are either very cold or very warm. In some years there will be the learning ressource centre, which is now being planned, and then this problem will hopefully be no longer an issue.

Love this cute college, it makes such a supportive and friendly community. The food here is really good, especially during our formals. It's located conveniently for lectures and going to town centre, has rooms looking out onto the cathedral and bailey, and you get to know everyone -including the lovely staff- so well.
