Cheaper than other accommodation on the campus, quite ugly from the outside, but have same facilities like other places on the campus. More like living in a family house. Kitchen is not the best but so are all the kitchens on the campus. Sharing showers, which is not so bad, as there was 5 people in my house.
Great value for money at just over £80 per week. Great communal shower and plenty of space. The main downside is that the building isn't very attractive, but you get over that pretty quickly. I am so glad i chose wolfson over the more expensive campus accommodation.
Yes we're the cheap seats, but the structure of Wolfson seems to make it more sociable than other halls; each flat functions more like a house, and the shared facilities make or break flat bonding. We're right on campus (but far enough from the LCR not to hear it) and endearingly ugly. I've got exactly the same stuff as other halls, but the lack of plaster on my walls means I pay much less :)
As the cheapest accommodation on campus, not a massive amount of effort has gone into making it look pretty, but the actual facilities themselves are all fit for purpose. Maintenance are pretty good at replacing anything that's broken within a few days or so. And the layout of one larger flat (8-14) and one smaller flat (5) in each building, with each individual flat taking up two or three floors, it's laid out more like a house, thus increasing the flat family vibe. Yes, we share bathroom and shower facilities, but they're always well cleaned and looked after
