Great! Cardiac Hill is not the best but just need a bit of courage in the morning! Townhouses are the best in my opinion!

Q&A


Q
Flats and townhouses are different in terms of their formats, however the bedrooms inside both are very similarly designed. Flats tend to have less people in them (somewhere between 6-9 people in each flat), all of whom have an ensuite bathroom and share a communal kitchen. In townhouses, there are 12 people who share a large communal kitchen and share a bathroom between 2 rooms. Townhouses are in...

Q
On the Exeter accommodation website about Birks it mentions flats and townhouses. I was wondering what the townhouses actually were in the sense of how many people, are you separated from the people in the normal flats and are townhouses the best way to go if you can't afford an ensuite?

Wifi could have been better, but that was all the halls. Location is good but the hill is intense before leftures and a 25 minute walk into the city.

Although it was located at the bottom of a giant hill, it really was a fun and social accommodation.

Nice and modern and only a 12 minute walk from central campus and a 20 minute walk to town. Nice balance of night life and quietness, people are fun and friendly and the accommodation is spacious. The actual social area is old and lacks actual things to do and therefore needs renovation in my opinion.

Absolutely brilliant place. Great location, most green beautiful part of the campus. Rooms are lovely, huge desk, huge wardrobe, lots of storage space. Kitchen and dining area are very spacious. Townhouse provides a relatively quiet environment too.

Definitely pick Birks Grange Village if you want to go catered! Although you have to walk up cardiac hill to get to your lectures it's definitely worth it as it's such a sociable environment and everyone is genuinely so nice and the accommodation is brilliant you get your own shower as opposed to a wet room in holland hall!!!

Townhouses, flat blocks and studios in one area can lead to only one thing. Massive house parties. Love it. There's even a ping pong table and a cat. If you can survive cardiac hill three times a day, Birks is for you.

Modern, comfortable halls with decent kitchens (in self-catered). Quiet location, but quite far from the centre and you have to climb a very long and steep hill to get to campus. My block was cleaned regularly (but not my room) and there was an efficient fault-reporting/query/postal collection service. Wifi was excellent, fast and only went down on one or two occasions.

Specifically for a Townhouse (Nblock) The building are new and so clean and light. 12 'flatmates' is a perfect number and the kitchen/lounge is big enough for all of us- normal flats don't get a social area so big. Selfcatered is good fun. Residence help team are great and small fixes have been done veryquickly Cardiac hill is the only downside

Amazing Halls for making friends, the scenery is great, you're only a short walk from the center, safe location and the atmosphere at night is quite surreal. This was my second choice of accommodation but having been placed here I regret not leaving it as my first. Downsides are pretty general for any of the university residences; Wednesday fire alarm tests, random maintenance strangers in your house, no extractor fans in the bathroom etc. However the killer is cardiac hill, do not even think about applying here till you have walked to campus from the bottom - it was a real eye opener.

Really nice rooms, clean and quite new. Good facilities, large laundry, shop on site. No common rooms for studios so a bit lonely. Steep hill to get to campus, 20 minute walk to town centre. Wifi could be better

Studios don't come off well with the above factors, but they do come with the added bonus of only having to wash up twice a week. Whilst it can be harder to meet people, making a real effort in Freshers' Week can sort you out. Birks is down Cardiac Hill but other than this is about a ten minute walk from the Forum and fifteen minutes from the Lemmy. We're also closer to the Impy and town is twenty minutes away so you aren't too far from anything. The accommodation is really new, everything is clean and there's lots of storage space and you even get a double bed.

Loved living in Birks, however tee really could have done with a common room, and the 45 minute walk to town was a bit of a drag in winter

Not that much use of common spaces, but rooms were big, clean and had en suites. Catered food meant that social spaces (such as kitchens) weren't needed.
