    The number is from 4-9 people to share a kitchen. There's no restriction apart from you're not allowed deep fat fryers or to use kettles/kitchen equipment outside of the kitchen/pantry.

    This is all on the KCL website I suggest you read it:

    Thank you, Jessica. I did read this but 4-9 people sounded pretty vague and I wanted to know from current students living at SSA about the number of people they had to share with.

    I lived there in my first year.

    My kitchen served 7 people and I'd say the average is 7 to 9 not 4 to 9.

    What do you mean by restrictions on cooking full meals?

    Thank you for the info! Was it easy for you to cook with 6 other people sharing with you? And your bedroom and bathroom are your own, right? I'm having doubts now :P

    Yes, so your bedroom and your bathroom are your own. NB the ensuite bathroom is very very very small.

    I like to cook and found no problem cooking. It tended to get busy around the same time everyday but, at the most, there was like 3 people using it one time. I never saw it busier than that.

    The setup of a Shared Flat is a corridor, with 4-8 ensuite bedrooms, and 1 kitchen. Most flats have 7 or 8 people in them, the ones on the top floor have 5, and a couple of other special ones have 4-6.

    The quality and size of the kitchen varies. My kitchen was pretty small, one cooker and barely any cupboards (though it will be renovated for this year I think). Its pretty difficult sharing with 7 other people with one cooker, I had to eat later than others when I was making anything big, but as I say I had the worst kitchen in stamford street and its being upgraded.
