First year halls were really good. They had an ensuite and although on first impressions the rooms might have seemed small they were big enough for student life. The wardrobes and desks are all fitted and new so they space is used well and everything is modern and clean. The kitchen is big and spacious and has 2 ovens, fridges, freezers and sinks per kitchen for 8 people. There is plenty of cupboard space and other space for everyone in the kitchen. Local private landlord space varies in quality. The sooner you look the better as the nicer houses definitely go quicker. I was lucky to get one of the nicest houses there is. The landlords are really good and come round to fix problems pretty much the next day after you report it. Rent is much cheaper than living on campus and I prefer the atmosphere as it seems less claustrophobic.×
