(Review of postgraduate accommodation, as a fresher) Really far away from all the other accommodations, the uni itself and the city centre (spent lots of money on a metro pass & ubers). Wifi is okay, occasionally buffers when using lots of devices at the same time. The flat itself is a two bedroom (not ideal for freshers!!) but cosy, if not a little dated. Postgrad accommodation has a washing machine in the kitchen which is such a plus (saves on circuit laundry!!). Comfy double beds, sizeable rooms. Looks out onto metro tracks at the back, can be quite loud but the trains don’t run all night which is good. Very cheap, and price kind of makes up for the cost spent on travel. If you get put in postgrad accom as a fresher I would definitely recommend asking to swap into a normal first year flat of 6- luckily I get on really well with my flat mate but freshers in a flat of two isn’t easy!

I loved Bowsden! Its such a nice accommodation. The rooms are lovely and the en suites are massive! The kitchen is a bit small and the wifi is really bad. But its definitely worth the price. There is plenty of parking and the area is so cute. A really nice and different student halls

Best place to live if you don't want to be caught up in the city, big local shops, 2 min walk to metro, halls themselves more than adequate, people working here are great we always have good banter with them!

it's too far away from town, good connections through the metro but all in all not worth it, go to castle leazes or park terrace. much more convenient.

Close knit halls because of its location, cheap Asda round the corner and Domino's on your doorstep is great!

The halls themselves are beautiful, and defiantly good value. However, considering that they are so far out of the city I do feel like a social space should be provided.

Brilliant underrated student accommodation. Metro across the street with easy access to university. Not too overwhelming, small buildings, family atmosphere. Loved my time there!
