Q&A


Q
When choosing rooms, what Blocks/Floors did people find were the best in terms of accessibility, daylight? (this is a big factor for me). I was thinking block A on one of the highest floors and a West facing room, but wasn't sure whether to go for a lower floor in case of the lift breaking - is this an issue people have had?

Enjoyed living there and had no issue with the accommodation itself or staff there, just with flatmates

So good and very sociable. The facilities are also very good and the location is perfect as it is a 2 minute walk to university.

Archway is very expensive, it is a nice accommodation and the rooms, kitchens, views (especially from higher floors) and location, but it isn't worth £170 a week, £185 next academic year. One reason is because there is mess in the lifts frequently that is clean but can be left there for days, and another reason is the washing facilities are limited (about 6 washing machines and 6 dryers respectively) so often they are all full (there are about 270 rooms). Also for £170 a week you would expect a bit more storage in the rooms, yes there is a wardrobe, 3 drawers and shelving but it can still feel a bit cramped. Archway is a nice place to live if you are willing to pay a lot of money, but if you are looking for something cheaper and still good quality don't come here.

Archway is one of the more expensive accommodations, but it does show in its quality. The kitchen facilities are amazing with a joint kitchen and living area, including a TV and two sofas. The rooms are all en suite and the bathrooms are great and the double beds are quite comfy. It is located right by the Brooks Building, meaning it’s close to pretty much every uni building in the area. As for wifi, it can be pretty on and off sometimes, but when it does work it works well.
