Riverside Way

Most helpful review

Nice rooms and facilities. The common room is amazing and reception area is welcoming. However I do wish I could've actually shared these spaces with my friends/family without feeling like I'm constantly being watched/told off. They are not too happy about guests visiting frequently, which as a first year student is very hard to get around because you're trying to meet new people and make new friends. I've had bad experiences having friends over (who do not live at Riverside way) being told to leave the common room as they dont live there. It feels very unwelcoming and makes the cost of living here feel a bit pointless. Although if you're happy not having much of a social aspect where you live, or you prefer to go out instead, this is probably a good place for you to live. Also, if you live on the side facing the industrial estate, its almost impossible to sleep with your window open because of the noise, which is a problem because the building gets very hot.

Riverside way is a great place to live, it's not on campus but is only a short 10 minute walk to the university (Winchester School of Art). The communal areas are very spacious and the facilities downstairs in the common room make it easy to make friends and play a game of pool or on the play station. I would live here anything year if I could!
