I was in the very first block of Britten house and the location is fantastic - so close to all my lectures, seminars, the library, etc. I just wish we had one more oven...
Britten House has been amazing to live in! Great location so near to the shop, lcr, bus stop, sports park and other blocks. Bathrooms cleaned every Wednesday, and kitchens on Monday and Thursday. The cleaning staff are so lovely. The social life is what you make it, and I'm lucky enough to have great flat mates and great friends across the hall. My only criticism is it's difficult fitting all 8 of us round the table, so I guess he social space could be better.
Only communal area is an old kitchen which is extremely depressing. Living on campus means you're ages away from Norwich and you're stuck in your room most of time. Every wednesday you are woken up at 9am for your bathroom to be cleaned.
I lived in Britten House for only 2 months at the end of the year because of unforseen circumstances. Loved how close it is to the shop and the library, bustops and the sportspark - very conveniently placed. It felt more sociable that the halls I was previously in because it was opposite Patson House, and nearby to Coleman ad Victory etc. I feel like this would have been a really sociable area during freshers week and every flat seemed to know each other. Rooms were a decent size and so was the ensuite. Kitchens were big enough for a flat of 8 and cleaned 2x a week by a cleaner.
It's pretty good, Toilets cleaned once a week and kitchen cleaned twice a week. Socially it's what you make of it, for some reason the parties aren't as mad as Ziggs but they can get pretty good. More or less right next to everything. Whether you are put in Colman, Britten or Paston won't make much difference. Only downside is there are no lifts.
So close to everything on campus! Cleaners are lovely too!
It's an okay Hall for the price, lacks a lot of common things like an oven and it can get dirty at times.
Well this was my second choice, I'm not sure if I'd have preferred my choice (Ziggurats), however my great experience in this accommodation is mainly due to my flatmates.
It's good and has great people, except for the one non-fresher in a flat with loads of freshers killing the mood a lot. That, and the fact that the kitchen doesn't seem to have actually been cleaned in the 2 weeks we've been here?
A delightful place to live! Doreen the cleaner is a true legend <3
I absolutely love staying in Britten house on campus. Only thing was I was in a small flat so it could've been better but overall loved it!
