I was surprised by the amount of storage space supplied in my halls of residence. Admittedly the rooms are not large, but they have managed to fit a lot of drawers and shelving space into the room, as well as a good sized wardrobe and desk. I expected to be struggling for space, when in reality I ended up bringing more items back to university with me after the first time I went back home! The beds are reasonably comfortable, especially if you bring a mattress topper, and the en suite bathroom is not big, but is big enough for its purpose. Having 7 other people living in the flat with me means that there is always someone around to talk to, and it is very easy to get to know people from other flats within the house. One thing that could have been better was the communal living space. The kitchen is a good size for 8 people, with enough cupboard space etc, but the only place we could sit all together was around the kitchen table, which was not very comfortable, and we would have much preferred to have an area with sofas or other softer seating away from the kitchen where we could hang out.
