    I'm currently on the waiting list for both accommodations. I'm a light sleeper and I've heard that people talk outside in the courtyard in Cutty Sark. What about McMillan - How is that for accommodation?

    I know someone who lives in McMillan and he said it's not that great, but it's convenient if you're lectures are in the Greenwich campus, my first choice was Cutty Sark but I don't really know a lot about it, I think you'll be very lucky if you don't experience noise outside your room at night though, especially after a big event.

    Yep - My lectures are in Greenwich. Looks like I'll hang on for Cutty Sark - but are there any more opinions out there?

    As a resident of cutty sark, I can tell you if you are unfortunate enough to land a room which is on the courtyard side then yes, some nights can be loud. Closing your window makes no difference. If you land a room not overlooking the courtyard, you will be fine. Unless your directly above Wetherspoons, thats loud every night up untill 11pm. However, it is great for when you just wanna get home from Uni/Town because it is right on the doorstep.

    McMillan is quieter but alot more fun! Stay there if you like parties and socialising. I walk most nights from Cutty Sark to Mcmillan for flat parties etc.

    How can McMillan be quieter but have more parties? lol

    Thanks for the valuable information on Cutty Sark! Roughly, what percentage of rooms are near the courtyard then?

    Because, McMillan is about 3 times the size, students are more spread out and the floors are higher up.

    At Cutty Sark, you have a small courtyard.

    And, I would say 50%. Depending on what side of the corridor you are on, you are either going to be overlooking the courtyard or the roads surrounding the student acommodation.

    Thank you for the input. Still waiting for acommodation. Maybe I should consider Avery Hill - What's best there?

    Went to Avery Hill the other night. First of all, on the standard TFL bus it took about 30 minutes with no traffic to get there. (This was the first bus back at 05.45am mind. A taxi costs £15.00. I would imagine with traffic, you could be looking at 40 minute journey to Uni.

    In terms of accomodation, it looks like something out of the 80's, early 90's at best. Bathroom is very minimal, and the rooms reminded me of a prison cell (even more so than here at Cutty Sark). However, party vibe was pretty awesome. It seems if you like to party, consider Avery Hill. We had music playing untill 5am and nobody uttered a word. Here at Cutty Sark, play music past 11 and an RA will come knocking on your door.

    Do you know what court that was that you're talking about? I'm looking for somewhere where I can get a decent night of sleep and it looks good
