I have been in 4 different types of accommodation, The Village (where i live now), Norfolk Terrace, Constable and paston.
Tbh i love the village and couldn't imagine living anywhere else. The village rooms are a nice size, they are smaller then other places because the en-suite takes a chunk of the space. However it isn't too small and out of all the other accomadation i have been to i think uses the space best. The en-suite is quite small but for me was more than alright, all you will use it for is showering and going to the toilet. And if you're someone who spends ages getting ready in front of the mirror there is a full length mirror on the inside of the wardrobe. Prob one of my only complaints about my accommodation is the noise of the extractor fan in the en-suite, which is quite loud and takes a while to turn off (don't know if thats just me?). One of the best things about the village compared to other places IMO is the kitchen, unlike the horrible metal things i've seen in the other places, it is more of a proper kitchen. It has the same amount of hobs, grills, microwave/ovens that other places have but a lot less people share it. Ours is used between 6 people. The walk back from The village might be a probolem for some people, however for me was quite a good thing as i'm not a morning person and the walk to lectures forces me to wake up. It only takes me 5 - 10 mins to get to a lecture depending where it is.
I thought Norfolk Terrace was quite nice. The rooms are nice and big, and have big windows with nice views. They also have a sink with mirror. However you do have to share toilets and showers. But none of the people i have spoken to have had a problem with this. The kitchen is alright (very metal though) with nice views but is shared by a lot of people and is quite small for the number of people IMO. One complaint i have heard about this place is that the rooms can get quite hot. It is the cheapest accomadation which is a big plus!
Tbh i was quite disappointed with constable terrace, and was expecting a bit more for the extra money you have to pay compared to the first 2. The rooms are a nice size but i didn't think they used the space all that well with like a corner of empty space which people just seemed to throw their dirty clothes in (people i know anyway lol). The en-suite is bigger than the village's but this isn't a very big factor for me (maybe if you plan on spending a lot of time in there you might take this more into consideration). The kitchen is bigger than the first 2 places, from what i remember though they had the same number of hobs, girll etc as us in the village which suprised me because they have more people living there.
So anyway from what i have seen i would say save some money and live in The Village or Norfolk Terrace. However if you can afford it you might think about the more expensive accomadation, however i don't really see what you get for this extra money?
I think the main thing about anywhere that you live is the people you live with, if you are living with some nice people then you will get on fine anywhere.
The person i know who lives in Constable doesn't get on with hardly any of the ppl he lives with, as most of them just stay in their rooms and don't speak to anyone. I guess that could have contributed to my negative view of that place
