Great location on campus and has an excellent layout to create an excellent social experience. A bar and the uni sports centre are all within a minutes walk of the college, and it also has two common room which are open to all James students.
I lived in N Block, which has a reputation for being grotty and horrible, which was entirely deserved. Bugs fell out of my ceiling, the kitchen couldn't fit more than a third of us in it at once and almost everyone's rooms got mould. That being said, it really does make some fast friendships, and literally *anywhere* else you move after it will look like a palace!
Initially I thought a 5:1 shared bathroom (cleaned daily) will be a disaster but I was proven wrong. You will feel like a family in the long run. The college staffs are also very friendly and we have college tutors who you can talk to about any kind of issues. Wifi works perfectly.
Initially I thought sharing bathrooms wasn't going to go well and everyone in the flat would need to queue. But amazingly there was no queue at all and you will feel like a family living under the same roof in the long run.
