Living on-campus is sooo cool *_*
I am en Erasmus student and I'm 3 years older than Freshers but I'm really fine even if they are a bit "little" to me. They are really mature (I think that in my home country guys are much more immature when they are 18 years old), in a week and a half here I have met a lot of nice people and I had so much fun!
By the way, let's get to the point.
I am staying at Tocil, and the more I live here the more I think it is the BEST on-campus option. We are 12 in our flat and we have 4 bathrooms: 3 with shower and one with bath. Only one guy likes to use the bath, I use it for handwashing (in a washtub, of course) my underwear and some t-shirts. The rooms are really nice and the location is awesome both for the facilities and the landscape.
Bathrooms are never busy since people live with they own timetables, it's perfect.
Actually, we have the laundry!! The website says we don't, but we have!
It is 2 pound for the washing machine and 1 pound for the dryer.
The kitchens are quite old, but in my friend's block they are new. Hopefully they are going to re-new them all, block by block.
The only thumb down I have to recognize is the non-presence of a basin in the room, I think I would really need it.
But for the rest, we have the best accommodation. So central, so nice, so close to EVERYTHING. I really recommend it. We all do.
I also went to Jack Martin and Whitefields.
The first one is really nice, but corridors are not as safe as flats.
And I wouldn't like to have the cleaners inside my room (as you know, JM is en-suite).
Whitefields is something awful, don't put it down. It's really bad, really.
I know a gilr that is staying at Old Rootes and she hates it, her room is so old. But other people feel ok about Rootes (I don't know if they are in Old or New, though).
Sorry for my English, I tried to write the best that I could.
Hope you're all enjoying your stay!
This campus is fantastic, even if I don't really appreciate the teaching method here. Really few hours, and you have to do it all by yourself at home/library. And you can actually choose what to study more and what not to study. I don't like it. I prefer the method that my home univerities use.
