Wickham hall is very modern which attracted me to apply to live here. The location is brilliant because you can wake up ten minutes before your lecture and make it on time! I like that it’s only 6 flats per flat so it’s more cosy and you know who’s coming and going compared to other accommodations. The rooms themselves are quite small so I wouldn’t recommend bringing too much with you as it easily gets cluttered. Bathrooms are fantastic with a huge mirror and the showers are great compared to most unis. Unfortunately, the walls in wickham are paper thin so you can hear absolutely EVERYTHING. I also recommend you buy thick mattress toppers because the mattresses are hard compared to connies?? Not sure why when we pay more! Overall, I wouldn’t have chosen anywhere else to live because it’s made my first year at uni very easy!
Wickham is a lovely clean place to live and Definetly one of the best out of the places I looked. However the mirrors in the rooms aren't too good and prefer manual lights so you can turn the fan off at night rather than waiting 20mins. Blackout curtains would be nice too
First impressions were good. I initially thought that the rooms were a bit small but it turns out that it's manageable. Some people were lucky enough to get the corner rooms of certain blocks so they have bigger rooms. Rooms are warm, never been cold. As a gamer, there's no place to put my wires!!! A hole at the back of the desk would have been useful as my wires for my laptop (keyboard, mouse etc) are everywhere. Communal area is good. Lots of space. Sofas are ok. A bit hard but you get used to them. Same with the mattresses, Very hard mattresses.
Lovely place to live, can get abit lonely if you don't make the effort to come out your room and see people - nice to have my own bathroom too! I have to admit the beds could be comfier but I solved that by buying a mattress topper :)
Really lovely place to live. Modern bedrooms and living spaces and you get your own bathroom! . The only problem I've found is that the senior and assistant residents I have encountered aren't that helpful and don't do a great job. The accommodation lady herself though is really lovely and helpful and has time for everyone.
Again the wifi isn't great but I love where I live. It is right in the middle of campus and is a 2 minute walk to anything! Our kitchen/living room is so big compared to other universities and even has a paid for tv with a license. However my flat is on the ground floor meaning unlike the other flats we don't have our front door open so we haven't really socialised with the other people in our block.
Everything in our flat is breaking, the beds and sofa are so uncomfy, I can hear the room above weeing at night and all of the walls are paper thin. The fire alarm has been off 6 times since the start of the semester and the majority of them have happened due to a technical issue in a room...which still haven't been fixed!!!
