I lived at the couples flat ie a one-bedroom flat on the tenth floor for nine months in 19-20. The best sides of Wolfson House are: - its location. Short distance to each campus - it's a 35min walk to Strand Campus, 3min walk to Guy's and 15 min walk to Waterloo. - easy to move in, no hassle. - nice staff - the Wifi was super fast in my flat. The cons, however, are extensive: - Ugly and shabby from the inside and outside. Furniture is from the 80s - the washing machines are very bad. You can only use a 35min cycle and there are only 4-5 machines and dryers. Plus one of them is always broken. - it's next to Guy's Hospital Delivery point so there are trucks beeping constantly in the courtyard. Not nice if you want to sleep late or go to bed early. - Super expensive. You can get a luxurious flat from the private sector with that money. Overall, Wolfson is a convenient place if you are living abroad for the first time. However, I would recommend renting private asap.

sharing a flat of 14 it gets dirty so quickly. they clean the kitchen once a week but it gets so gross that's far too many people to one kitchen when you're paying that much. location is ideal for guys campus, bit of a walk to strand which is fine when it's not raining. security are obscenely rude. manager is nice. literally no social spaces except the common room downstairs which is a bit awkward to use generally. i didn't even meet all of my flatmates after being there for a year; that's how antisocial it is and all the floors say the same. only one shower works. quite noisy but good location to get around london.

Very shabby small rooms and sharing a kitchen with 14 people is never very clean. The cheapest King's does though so you just have to make do.
