I would not recommend this university to my greatest enemy. As an MS sufferer, female and black individual, I truly could not have asked for a worse university. It is with my deepest regret that I selected this university. For going on two years now I have been used as a slave by over a dozen schools, doing all the marking, all the planning, friendly to everyone and every child just to be told on the very last day that I have failed, or that after teaching 3 lessons, the students have not progressed. Biggest mistake of my life.
I thought it was great for anyone with a busy course as you can enjoy the cooked food after a busy day. I thought the food was hit and miss sometimes, some meals very freezer food like . However you get big portions and a hot pudding often too. Breakfast was always very good with a wide selection. However you must wake up before 9:30 to get breakfast. I found my room size was much bigger than oakhouse and richmond park. My room also had plenty of storage space and my washing would quickly dry on a washing rack so I never spent money on drying clothes. I thought that sharing a bathroom would bother me but there are never usually more than 2 people in the bathoom at the same time and 3 toilets and 3 showers. I never once had to wait for a shower. I wasnt happy that there was no livingroom/common area on my floor/block which made it difficult to socialize which meant we had to party/drink in the hallway. I would also say that the kitchen is VERY small for a floor of 15 fits only 2 max
Honestly some of the best rooms available, really helps to have your own space that isn't a cupboard (like Oak House). Kitchens are smaller than a toilet cubicle but it's fun to moan about them constantly with your flat. Food is hit or miss but not having to think about cooking all the time is refreshing. Cleaners do a great job but do shout a LOT about bins. Able to mix with more people than in a flat situation due to dinner times and formals. Less crazy crowd but sure you'll find people you like (hopefully). Would recommend.
These halls definitely have some of the biggest rooms available! I really didn't want these halls whenever I first arrived, but being catered actually did save me a good amount of money and the food is very nice! The formals are great fun and there's a good mix of people, the bar is also decent to hang out in. Closest halls to Sainsbury's so can't complain!
The food is pretty bad, it sucks having a tutor in every block who just won't leave you alone, they expect 15 people to cook their lunch and weekend meals in a cabin sized kitchen (I'm not joking I've been on many boats with larger kitchens). But it is pretty and has a good location. If you're someone who wants lots of quiet nights in and doesn't mind cleaning up all the time it's a good choice for you.
The only social spaces are in another building, we were told we can't congregate in corridors, so the warden actually suggested that if we wanted to converse with the whole flat we should leave the building or the campus
as it's small there's a great community feel. nice big rooms, although no in-block common room. kitchen's are more like cupboards but it's something to bond over with your flat mates. the bar essentially acts as the common room- people bring their own drinks when the bar's not open. food's okay, not the best but at least you don't have to cook. nice quiet area so you can go out and party and go back to your quiet room. there are also cats and other wildlife in the area.
Wifi is great- really strong and not had any problems at all. The food is really nice and it is so much better to not have to worry about cooking meals. The location is great- near to all the students but in one corner of the main site so that it is less noisy. The halls are so sociable, with lots of events put on throughout the year and opportunities available and there are lots of people per floor, per block and when you go to eat so you have lots of chances to meet people and make friends.
