Mount Charles was refurbished recently which means the houses are lovely and modern enough. The location is amazing it is right next to university, tescos at the end of the road, train 2 minutes away and bus 1 minute away. Socially, people stick to themselves, there is an induction meeting with the entire house at the start of the year so you get know who you are living with but after that it’s very much so just a hi in the hallway and that’s all. I only truely know about 2 people I live with properly, the rest I don’t know at all. There is no online groupchat or out of house sociallising/going out so if your looking for friends or a party I would go somewhere else. Noise levels vary, the cleaners come early Tuesday morning and make a lot of noise so if that’s your day off you’ll be woken by the noise annoyingly. Furthermore the pipes/radiators/water are all very very loud which can be annoying also.Overall it is an average place to live, it’s not the worst but it isn’t the best either

Q
Is mount charles available to second year students
By member931396 On 14th April 18
Hey, I’m going into second year and I’m thinking of putting Mount Charles as my first choice. They definitely allow second years but apparently it attracts more postgrad students? I’d hope that it’s social... what are your plans?

The newer houses in mount Charles are really good with decent sized rooms with 9 to a house with nice kitchens with two fridges and showers with max 3 people to, the older houses with smaller rooms (which you pay the same price for even tho the prices are apparently charged on the square feet of the room) have 12 people to with only 2 showers (6 to a shower), 2 kitchens with one fridge in each making it impossible to keep much food in pushing up your costs by not being able to buy in bulk or pre cook meals for the week. If you get offered a place in 11 to 19 then take it if any others you will be wasting money.
