The flat is far too hot in the summer. It becomes unbearable to eat or even be in the only social area we have (the kitchen). We haven't got an oven, we simply have a microwave, a grill and a hob. Which isn't brilliant and a oven would be MUCH appreciated (especially as there are 8 of us in one flat). I find it very unfair that we pay the same amount as the students in the flat opposite, however they have less people in a flat, two ovens, two grills and a microwave. Unfortunately we drew the short straw of the flat. Which should surely mean we pay less as our appliances lack? Obviously not. The price we pay is ridiculous and if I were start again as a first year I would definitely not live in halls as it is much cheaper and cleaner to live in a student house.

Value for money is good given how expensive other ensuite accommodation can be. Village is like a 10 min walk from Tesco Express and about a 15 minute walk from the LCR, which is very good. The cleaner our flat has is fantastic and very nice, so no complaints there. The social space/kitchen is small but that is the case for most accommodation. Hasn't been an issue for me since my flat doesn't really do anything together, which has nothing to do with the building. My social experience isn't really impacted for better or worse by Larch House. Most of my mates live elsewhere (quite a few in very nearby Beech House) and I'd rather not host pre-drinks in my own flat anyway, given the mess it creates. The internet connection is pretty standard. Eduroam is decent most of the time. What I will say is that my room/flat has been too hot, though. While it's not as much of an issue during the cold months, I'm not looking forward to surviving during the summer.

I think we pay far too much considering we don't even have an oven, since I've been here we have had three different cleaner and the current quite frankly isn't very good at her job. However I have experienced a good social life here at the university.
