I'm coming back for a second year, so yes, I did enjoy it
- The food is acceptable, but the menu is a little boring (repeats every two weeks or so). Fish & chips every Friday. I think the food quality is the same across all intercollegiate halls, but I'm not sure.
- About ten people to a bathroom. This varies though depending on whether you're in the main building or the annexe.
- About half the students are from Imperial (Nutford House is really the only intercollegiate hall which is close enough to Imperial to walk). For the other half: most of them are from KCL and UCL. I'm not sure how most people get to KCL though - I suspect quite a few of them take the bus.
- I'm not sure what to say about room size. The rooms are very small compared to those in Imperial halls, but I'm not sure how they compare to rooms in other intercollegiate halls.
- Social life in general: if you want to get involved there are several events organised throughout the year. Also since it is catered accommodation you can talk to a lot of people at mealtimes. Finally there is a TV room and a JCR (Junior Common Room) where most people hang out.
- Laundry: there are two washing machines and two dryers in the basement of the main house, and the same in the basement of the annexe. Last year the cost of one load of laundry was £1.60.
- Edgware Rd never sleeps - there are people around all night, so I'd say the area is one of the safer areas in London. But I still wouldn't recommend coming home alone late at night.
