How bad is Imperial and its accommodation? Watch
Is accommodation really that bad?
The quality is great, it's not Nido or other of the kind, but it is more than okay...this coming from a very picky person. I have enough space even in a twin and I still have some privacy. The rooms are clean, the furniture is okay and new. You can see more pictures on booking.com (there are more pics there than on the college website).
Plus why would you need a big room? It would feel empty plus you don't spend that much time inside your room anyway. Not even if you have the least contact hours and you are anti social.
I am more than happy with the accommodation. Now I am struggling to find something similar for 200+ and as close as possible to the college and let me tell you there aren't that many options.
The quality is really not bad at all. The more expensive rooms in Princes Gardens are really nice and very modern. I'm in Evelyn Gardens and although it is more basic, I've grown to love it and the best part is how sociable it all is!
Please don't be apprehensive, I was honestly a bit unsure at first but now I absolutely love my accommodation and wouldn't change it!
But please be warned that the accomodation allocation system that imperial uses may mean you not getting a single one of your choices, ending up in a twin room instead of a single, or both (as happened with me). This is incredibly frustrating and happened to a lot of people last year. Especially if you want a single room, make sure you put on your application that your preference is room type over room price.
