Very close to the uni, supermarkets and major stations. However, there is no common room in this House so that nobody can watch a TV. It's very noisy in night as we often hear people speaking loudly outside the building at 2 or 3 am. If you live in basement or ground floor, you will always hear noise from tube trains. This area is not safe at all as there was a murder in front of the House in Feb 2019.

<Good> Very close to the campus. Three tube stations are available. Four National Rail stations are also no more than 20 minutes on foot. There are many supermarkets close to the House. The building is old so that major troubles are common, such as water outage, but they are generally solved within several hours. <Bad> Laundry facilities are awful. According to my diary, either washers or dryers go faulty approximately every six weeks. It is very noisy. Drunk people often speak loudly in night such as 2 or 3 am. Noise from tube train is also significant (note that there are 24 hrs services on Fridays and Saturdays). There is no common room in this building at all. Nobody can watch a TV unless you go to Schafer House. This area is not always safe especially in night. You may occasionally hear homeless people fighting each other. In February 2019, there were at least three stabbing within 200 yds of the House, and one of them were murder just in front of the House.

Overall a great place to live, possibly slightly better suited to a second year than freshers due to how far it is from the uni. That said it's still in a great location opposite the tony cavery and a 10 minute walk from the union. Facilities and staff were great and due to its location, you get a lot of room space and an ensuite for not a lot of money.
