Because I'm expressing my personal experiences of my year so far at Victory House, obviously I've somehow (god knows how) touched a nerve. Why she would be getting so defensive I have no idea but do find quite amusing I must admit.

Not offended whatsoever, as you've had a personally bad experience living in Victory I was just counter-arguing it as said there's always two different points of view, as there have been many people who have lived in Victory and have loved it. I could give a huge long list of everything that went wrong when I lived in Courtyard A, but it's highly unlikely that the year before or the year after me had those exact same problems. Therefore it's not inherently the building, half of the time it's just bad luck or wear and tear. Things go wrong in accommodation no matter whether it's university owned, rented accommodation or your own property, it's life. Just like you'll not always going to get along with the people you live with. But at least with University there's endless ways to socialise and make friends, not just with your housemates. In fact my best friends during my freshers year were those I made on my course and from other houses in the village. How you react to crap situations is what matters in the end.

Loooool how psychological of you. Your constant need to be right is also worth noting in this argument. I was simply trying to help people decide between the village and campus en-suite accom as I would do anything to have decided village over campus accom now but it's too late. Just trying to stop others making the same mistake.

Have I got this right? ( without coursing an argument)

1. some of the most expensive accommodation is of a mixed stranded
2. this is problematic because on-suit on-campus is all the same price and you dont get a choice of 'house'.

So on balance the village would be better?

Well tbh Nelson Court and Constanble Terrace are far superior to the other accommodation paying the same price, so it pretty much is luck of the draw going for the most expensive ones. The village is really nice and you're saving a lot of money, so I would recommend the village yes.

Room is okay but very shabby. There were white stains EVERYWHERE when I moved in so I had to buy cleaning product and remove them myself. Bathroom ceiling has patches of grey all over it, the bathroom floods when you have a shower. Slightly wider and longer than other blocks though which is probably the only pro I can think of.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t8ERLqGliAE - I think this is form the Ziggs

I'm sure that's a pretty bad example though and that it's not usually that bad. Have you been to an applicant/open day and looked at one?

They have metal worksurfaces and microwaves with other functions. The facilities themselves are very similar to ensuite campus.

Here is a video tour - I haven't watched the whole thing, just skipped through, but it seems to show lots of footage of what the flat looks like.

That is top of the range accommodation prices at UEA, so en-suite campus but since you are not limited by price I would say have a look at/ consider all the accommodation, you just get a bigger choice
