    Rosebery if you want to socialize, or Bankside if you want a big room with good facilities.

    yep, i knew someone who was @ carr saunders, and even though he didn't complain too much, sharing kitchens can be a problem, specially if the others are from different countries and have different palates.

    I remember having to line up to cook in the beginning. So in the end I just have late lunches so I can have dinner later and avoid the crowd.

    The kitchens are crowded at Rosebery too with around 24 people to one kitchen. The stove/oven situation is quite pathetic as well. You can only use both the hobs at once...Or one hob and the oven.

    But then, we're not meant to be cooking proper meals there anyway so it's not like there's much to complain about. Also, only a fraction of the 24 people actually ever use it to cook.

    its Holborn period. simply cus of convenience

    10-15 mins from lse, and soho, convent garden, etc, that means 2 important things:

    a) easy to get to the clubs, even if just for an hour, etc so you go out more often, no 45 mins trek back like if u were in Bankside
    b) You can go back if theres like a 2/3 hour break between lectures whilst other halls ud either stay in LSE which is a pain, or miss the lecture,

    Also find there a direct correlation between distance between halls and amount of lectures and classes you attend!

    You can't put a price on location. I get up at 9.45 for a 10 lecture!

    Not GDS for sure though rjkara will disagree with me. The shower is painfully slow and bathroom space is too small that I keep banging myself and feel short of breadth. Its not bad though but shouldnt be your first choice. I would prob. move to Grosvenor house or one of the UoL residences (Lilian Penson perhaps) next year.

    does UCL have similar accomodation as LSE? cause i just looked at the accomodation stuff UCL sent me and it looked pretty bad (in the pictures at least), sort of looked like the accomodation I got at Milton Academy this summer..........that summer at UCLA probably spoiled me since after that I thought all college housing feels like hotels with room service........

    It has shared facilities, with an entire corridor of people. And there is one kitchen per floor. It is by far the hall with the worst facilities in my opinion, so if you like all your mod-cons and that then I would suggest going for Bankside.

    You can either walk from Rosebery or get a bus (38/19 to Holborn Station and then walk down Kingsway, or the 341 to Aldwych). Walking takes about 20 minutes.
