Almost comically bad, Kitchener has questionable structural integrity with leaks that were ignored and then led to a crumbling ceiling in one room. Services such as the washing machines consistently fell into disrepair, even achieving at one point an almost two month long streak of uselessness. With very (very) little students this year, the stoves' efficacy was also infamous when logically this was a holiday for the appliances. The cherry on top of this barely functioning building is the unpleasant environment carefully curated by the cleaners, Kathy in particular. God save you lest you dare venture into the corridor of your own home- you will be accosted and ranted at while your will to live gently dissipates from your eyes. Kathy's tyranny may be ignored if you're dilligent about leaving your room at 4pm everyday, but the sheer amount of incessant noise, from yelling in the corridor to playing the xylophone on the stairwell banister will violently chip at your revision and sanity.
I loved my time in Kitchener. Super affordable, spacious rooms and so close to Kings Buildings. Great for socialising too, with the events organised by the RAs. The cleaning staff were lovely, always up for a chat and in a couple of weeks they knew all of us. The wifi crashed a couple of times, but they solved it withing a couple of days. Highly recommend.
