What expensive, but nice rooms and social space. But 45 min to walk to school, no help from housing the first weeks, it's been 7 weeks and no one has been here to check on us, we are all first year international students,. So we needed some help the first week but didn't get any

Pros: Located right by a major tube and rail station, and across the street from a wonderful market. A 20 minute walk to Waterloo campus, a 35 minute walk to Strand campus and Maughan Library. The med library at Guy's campus is located just behind the residence halls. Iris Brook is older than Orchard Lisle, but they look similar. Overall, living in halls is nice to meet friends; most are international students. Cons: The reception desk is only a M-F 9-6 gig with a lunch break in between. Meaning, if you get an Amazon Prime package for next day delivery, you'll likely not get a notification with a reference #, until the day after it actually arrived. You're screwed on the weekends, as no one is there. Laundry has never been more expensive. It's 5 pounds for 1 load, wash and dry. There are only 4 machines for the entire 2 buildings of Iris and Orchard. If you live in Iris, you'll have to walk your laundry out in the courtyard. Pubs and seagulls are extremely loud, at all times.

It is a great location in terms of having an enjoyable life in London. You have the Borough Market in the opposite, the Shard next to you, Tate Modern, Globe Theatre, National Theatre, Southbank Centre all within 10 to 40 minutes walk. But in terms of travelling to school, it depends on your campus. It is right next to Guy's campus and the New Hunts library. Though I have class at Strand, I still love this location. In terms of management, you better learn to take care of yourself. There were mice here and small common area. Maintenance improved and quick after they have the new guy doing it, but the managers are so so. The rooms are fine if everything works. It's clean overall if you live with helpful flatmates. No cleaning service for your room. Overall, great location, a bit expensive and get used to see mice occasionally.
