Moved from whitendale to Ribble. Now that was a mistake. The sink never really worked properly. Always started to leak, and when I called someone up it was okay for a month and went back to leaking alot again. The walls are thin as ever as I can literally eaves drop any conversation my neighbor has and it makes me feel more insecure when I'm chatting to my friends online. The doors are terrible, as if you don't close them yourself, they end up slamming (it's kept me awake for many nights The sinks are unique, they spit out from each side and it's hard to just wash your hands. Internet is great on LAN, but that's it. Wireless it's terrible, and acts like a cheap WiFi eventhough it's a WiFi which can pull speeds of 90mb/s. On phone it's okay (WiFi wise) Beds are okay, but every night I have to pull it back because my pillows sink from the back of the bed. It can be annoying. The desk is great. It fit all my monitors and pc on too of it, space is great for the price too.
Ribble Hall was the cheapest on campus, but thy're such nice halls. Our flat had two bathrooms and a big kitchen with a breakfast bar. It had a really nice view as well! Beds were comfortable, always hot water available and we had a nice patch of grass to sit on when it was sunny. Literally round the corner from the library and five minutes from campus/15 minutes from town. Would be nice to have a communal area other than the kitchen (sofas or a common room etc) but didn't really expect anything more for the money. Will be sad to leave!
