PROS: Moonraker Point is incredibly expensive but worth it in terms of itself. Everything is in good condition. The lighting in the rooms, mostly Philips-branded, is awesome, although inadequate in the shared dining areas. Communal kitchens are cleaned on a fortnightly basis. The staff members are friendly to me. The WiFi functions well despite very minor interruptions. CONS: The walls, though insulating heat very well, can amplify the noise. The ventilation system is also problematic - the air inlet is too close to the outlet so a minor portion of the kitchen exhaust would be sucked by the inlet and enter the kitchen and the bedrooms through pipes. (Probably not really) CONS: Note that anywhere left messy won't be cleaned - I understand this is on one hand to encourage us to keep the hygiene on our own; but the naughtier flatmates just did not care so this rule didn't prove effective. And I don't know for what magic reason, in most cases, few were using the social spaces.
Moonraker Point is by far the best residence for KCL. You can walk just about anywhere, uni (all three campuses), good clubs, bars, and have easy access to Waterloo station to get anywhere. It is a 5 minute walk to Borough Station (to get the Northern Line) and a 5 minute walk to Southwark Station (to get the Jubilee Line - East and West). Borough Market is close by, and is a great place to hang out on the weekend. The rooms are fantastic, with good double beds, nice facilities and some rooms have a great view of the area. The social life is fantastic, flat party's and pre's are very common in each block. There is a gym downstairs which also makes exercise very easy. It is a great part of London, very chill area but also very close to the action. Despite the lofty price tag, it is definitely worth it in my opinion! I was an exchange student and had a really great time, met some wonderful people, and had great fun. 10/10 would recommend.
Massively overpriced Cleaning staff are friendly but show up unannounced (if you stay over summer) barge into your private room without knocking Common room is rubbish no one uses it it's a waste of space Laundry room is small always busy, usually broken machines as well and also overpriced Social experience is what you make of it, as most of the halls are split into separate flat there's not much chance to meet other students Over summer it turns into a youth hostel full of kids and random people, not great environment if our still doing exams or clinical placements Internet is terrible!! The connection always goes down and some days you just can't get wifi Overall it looks nice, but oh pay a lot for not very much, some of the staff are helpful but most complaints they just apologise and don't act on it, Only redeeming feature is the location which is awesome for central London unis Wish I could get my money back, my advice skip halls and rent privately
The location is poor. It's a very long distance from the uni and takes a while to get there every day. Hall management is really good. We have a flat mentor who helps us a lot in our everyday needs. We can go to him about any advice we need about living in halls and any problems we have. The cleaning is distributed between us flat mates and a cleaner once every two weeks. The social space is okay. Theres not much room. But The Ridge is our main social area. It's really nice. Being so far away from most of the city and other accommodation doesn't really make it too sociable. It would be nicer to go somewhere closer to Sheffield. Not a mile out and having to spend money on taxis on nights out. The internet a wifi - I have no trouble.
