Sometimes there's no hot water so you have to time when getting up (when everyone is getting up it can run out sometimes). I do Life Sciences and the walk every day is manageable, around 20 mins or under every day. The downside is that there's no social area except the kitchen and dining area but we've managed to have pre-drinks here a few times so it doesn't bother us that much. When we want to watch a movie we just use someone's room. Sharing the bathroom with another person is really easy, it's like having your own. You're so close to Tesco and close enough to the SU and library that I don't complain about my daily walk that much. I usually only have to do it once a day and then I just go the library. We do get shut down sometimes for being too noisy when we weren't that loud but most of the time it's fine to host a small party as long as your sensible.
You have to time getting up to have hot water sometimes. I do Life Sciences and the walk every day to lectures isn't great but is manageable. The closeness of Tesco makes up for it though and you're close enough to the library and the Copper Rooms for an SU event so that you aren't scared to walk home. Having to share the bathroom with one other person is so easy it's like having your own. The kitchen is the only social space though but we manage to have pre-drinks and things here. If you want a cosy flat night in you just use someone's room.
Centrally located, allocation of students on the basis of their year in the blocks provides an ideal studying environment. With the same gender bathroom sharing facility between two individual and 12 individuals to a flat, and a weekly cleaning facility levels of hygiene are optimal.
