The bedroom itself is pretty decent and meets basic needs jel ever other than that literally the worst accommodation on campus, not much going for it, really quiet boring halls with pretty shit value for money considering it's only a bit cheaper from go war and wedderburn. My sink didn't work when I got here, it still doesn't work and bathroom shower is grim. Basic kitchen utilities also crap, fridge didn't work when I got here, oven and microwave etc shitter Than wedderburn etc. Woukdnt recommend it to anyone :)
Good location, can get everywhere on campus fairly easily. I don't think I'd ever go to the gym if I wasn't in Runnymede. There's not a lot of social spaces, although we have the kitchen table, there isn't a lot of space and it can get a bit crowded/tight if we're all in there. The halls are expensive, perhaps more than they are worth, but I am willing to put with that for an En-suite, in a self-catered hall that has a 38 week contract.
Runnymede 2 is the hall in the highest price for postgraduate, but I feel like it doesn't worth our money. I don't like the idea that staff can get access to our private room when we are evacuated. And we just have 1 stove for 8 people! Imagine when you have to queue to use the stove with an empty stomach! It's so annoying! And Chinese flatmate always invite their friends to come over for a dinner so the kitchen is crowded than ever!
Great rooms, very spacious, the en-suite bathroom is honestly amazing in comparison to many other en-suite bathrooms on campus with an elevated flooring which prevents flooding of the bathroom. The kitchen is very simple, but functional, with everything possibly needed for a self-catered student. Good number of flatmates, and with good bonding, you get to know everyone in your floor, the other floors and the joint flat next to you.
Good value for money as it has a well sized bedroom, a very very large desk, plenty of wardrobe space and an okay ensuite. The kitchen isn't nice but it's big enough and all the kitchen equipment is modern enough. It's nice to share with only 5 other people sometimes, although it does limit social opportunities to some degree
Cleaners spent more time staring out the windows than they did cleaning. Maintenance was awful. Drawers in the kitchen broke, microwave broke several times, kettle was filthy af, water was virtually undrinkable... room was not worth the price for this reason. No common room. Apply for Gowar, Wedderburn, Williamson, Tuke or Butler for a double bed at similar price.
