Everyone is very sociable due to the layout of the flats. The place felt like home after a few months and the rooms facing the lawn had a wonderful view every morning. The staff were friendly and helpful. Could do with a common room however, as there was nothing like that at all...

Gowar has the best bedrooms, and the en-suite bathroom is very nice. I can't tell if the bathroom floors are supposed to be heated but they're warm. It's okay if you don't like your flatmates, I never see mine and I still have a fun time cooking alone and eating in my room. I visited Wedderburn once and it was awful, there were odd cracks in the walls and a lift button was missing. It looked like Gowar but if it had been neglected and inhabited by the campus squirrels. I like Gowar and recommend it because the wifi is good.

Wouldn't have wanted to spend my first year anywhere else. It felt like I was living in centre parks. All the best students live in Gowar.

I absolutely loved my room in Gowar, it was so spacious and it was like my safe haven. The grass between Gowar and Wedderburn was nice too because you can have picnics out there on a summer's day which I did several times! Love this hall!

Really beautiful modern halls - nicer than Butler/Williamson/Tuke as its in its own area opposite Wedderburn with a green in the middle. Kitchens nice and spacious, rooms big with double bed and good ensuite (better than Runnymede!) No common room so socialising revolves around the kitchen so gathering with other flats tends to be in one person's flat with everyone's chairs. More of a walk to lectures than I thought but still closer than most.

Lived as an only fresher... Others were all in higher years due to the flat being a disabled one (meeting my needs) but was still great. Freshers week was a little dull though due to this.
