    I can't post any photos from Avery hill sadly, but I thought I'd give u an idea of what the single en-suite rooms look like at McMillian and Cutty Sark as I know I had no clue!

    Cutty Sark






    Then imagine a portaloo/train toilet and that's what the shower/toilet combo looks like

    McMillian

    It's a half mile walk from MacMillan to the campus along Creek Road (The road that Cutty Sark's entrance ramp faces onto)

    Oh I thought I had a picture of my actual room, but I don't appear to! Not that it was anything special... Here is an example of Parr Court at Avery Hill (one of the newer ones). Wardrobe is behind on the left, followed by the door. Pod ensuite behind the camera

    Just wondering...

    Whats the internet like in Cutty Sark or Avery Hill?
    Do they have some sort of IPTV service too?

    As I posted in another thread, I am primarily going to Kingston where they have an external company do their internet and you can upgrade to other speed packages and they also offer IPTV and IPTV+
    Just wondered if there is something similar at Greenwich?

    Cutty Sark and Avery Hill are both part of the Resnet network, which basically means your internet is provided directly by the University. Very high speed, but restrictions on some games/applications dependant on nature (e.g. torrents are a big no).

    Greenwich is signed up the Freewire service so theoretically you should be able to get Freeview through IPTV at both Avery Hill and Cutty Sark. In practice I could never get it to work in Cutty Sark, however I know that the internet link that the Uni has with Cutty Sark is not as good as with the Avery Hill halls (Cutty Sark's internet runs via a laser link to the Uni campus due to cables not being able to be installed as the Uni buildings are listed, Avery Hill however has cabled internet connections throughout the campus).

    Hope this helps answer your question and like I mentioned before, if anyone has any questions regarding Greenwich, please feel free to ask.

    I (unfortunately) received an offer for McMillan:

    McMillan Student Village - Apartment - shared flat with en-suite facilities

    Does this mean that I'll be sharing the room with someone else?

    I'm 20... Shared flat means that I won't have a room of my own, right?

    Great!

    Do you know anything about what McMillan is like socially? Isn't Deptford a very rough area?
