    I think it depends. Usually its either recently refurbished, the room is larger or a bigger bed, which I think is a queen size. But it would be better to email the accommodation team. BTW what hall are you looking to stay at? I'm thinking on City Gateway, because its new and close to Highfield.

    Anybody know what the internet speeds are like at glen eyre, wessex lane and mayflower? And do they offer wired (ethernet) connections? Having a decent internet connection is kind of important to me...

    I know they have Ethernet sockets. They also say it's high speed, but need to this because I'm used to fibre optic

    I have fibre internet too, and I'm certainly not going back! :P But with all those people using it I hope it's as fast as they quote...

    Thanks for the info, I need ethernet sockets because my PC doesn't have a wireless card in it.

    I didn't stay at Glen, Wessex Lane or Mayflower (obviously) but as far as I know they all operate ethernet cables, which worked perfectly fine at my halls! Speed dropped slightly in the evenings and at night when most students were online, but it was only noticeable for me when I was streaming live TV, so it was much better than I accepted for halls with no wi-fi!
