I’m writing this in my third semester of living here. Honestly? Do not bother applying here. While I understand certain things were out of the control of the university as the year I lived here was during the pandemic, but frankly there’s plenty of unacceptable things. To start, everything breaks. A list of things broken include, our fridge freezer (spoiling plenty of products), our showers (multiple times, I think around 6 between the two), most of the double glazing windows’ sealant is broken, one of the parts of our countertop, and many lights. Each and every time we contacted maintenance it would take over a week for them to inspect it, let alone fix it, if they did. The sealant on our windows (this moisture build up on the inside which caused black mold growth in two of the rooms) has only been repaired in one room (the one with the most mold). Honestly? Go to another halls. Or go private. You’ll at least get your money’s worth.

Your experience will basically depend on who you're put in a house with, can be great living in a house if you're with great people but if you don't like your housemates it's very isolated. Living off campus isn't great but the shuttle bus is reliable. Cheapest accommodation and there's a reason for that.

It is a bit far from Streatham Campus but great for social life, especially for parties. There's a bus that takes to campus in the morning and the afternoon. Right in front of St Davids station, so very handy if you want to travel often. A bit far from the clubs but really close to The Imperial and taxis to go into town are quite cheap! The big supermarkets are far but there's 2 small shops for urgent needs.

Tough walk every morning to centre of campus up st davids hill but by the train station which was advantageous as I used it a lot! I don't know about the houses but the flats were dull and had no character, looks like an old peoples home! However it is very easy to socialise and getting to know everyone in the building is easy.
