Good value for money, situated at an ok place on campus. What's going to ruin it for you is the other students. The pathway outside this accommodation handles 50% of foot traffic off and on campus, so at night, especially on thur, fri and sat nights, you'll be subjected to the squealing, shouting, ranting and raving of the thoughtless idiots on campus going out for the night, and the drunks wandering back in. wardens do nothing about it. Flatmates were noisy and inconsiderate, wardens did nothing. My room constantly smelt like dope because of my neighbour and security didn't believe me. People get food delivered to the pathway outside so there are motorbikes driving on the pathways outside at night. People shout and sing in their rooms for hours, even during exam periods. I had a neighbour who constantly tapped on his wall all day and night when he was in, and neighbours who would get back in from drinking at 3am and start playing music and singing. Buy earplugs.
Don't have a common room but just chill in the kitchen, location is really good closest to tesco and 4 minute walk from library. Internet speed is really fast (15ms/40mb/s upload and download.) Quieter part of campus so no bells waking you up everyday. Only flaw is its a longer walk to the launderettes and trainstation/town. Rooms are bigger than I expected and furnished well.
Quiet end of campus but still close to the library/ lecture theatres. Band D kitchens are a good size. The uni tends to 'chuck' all the disabled students (including me) in Twyford together which kind of feels like we're being alienated from 'normal' people. That, plus having a floor where half the residents are on the autistic spectrum makes social life pretty hard.
Best location on campus easily! Why? It's pretty much in the middle between tescos and lecture halls. Close enough to wake up 5 mins before 9am lectures. Far enough to get a goodnight sleep away from ringing of cathedral bells and rubix. Bus stop is right outside also.
I was so lucky to get the accommodations I had, great people, great location and I realised how uneccessary a private bathroom is! I was lucky not to get a band D and save £30 a week and still having really well kept facilities!
The location is excellent, however Twyford Court is very expensive considering the rooms look tired and slightly outdated. Sharing a kitchen with 12 others isn't too bad, however the court really needs an extra sink and extra microwave. There's also no social space/lounge area within Twyford Court and the walk to the laundrette is quite a trek. The accommodation team regularly check your room for various reasons, and this becomes very annoying. Surrey is a great place to study, but the accommodation is poor. WiFi is very fast though!
Good location, not central so good for final years/postgrads who want to work, but still on campus. Price too high - currently £99.50/week for a standard room. Problems resolved slowly by management but halls generally fine.
