    What are you looking to know?

    I know the price, location and roughly how many I will be sharing with. Went to visit them a few months back during the open day.

    Oh, great! I couldn't visit them because I'm not from the UK. I just had to go by pictures, haha.

    How spacious are the rooms? And I saw a sink in there, is that correct? How many people do you share a flat with typically?

    Pictures are always very deceiving haha. They aren't great, or that spacious! Yeah they have sinks, well the ones I saw did anyway.

    I've heard that roughly 12 people share a corridor/kitchen. It's never ideal but at the end of the day we are students on a budget, can't expect too much can we haha, it'll be mint!

    I would honestly just go for the cheap option and spend your extra money on essentials. After living in that environment for a week or so you will be used to it anyway.

    The showers looked very basic, but as long as they work I'm happy. Dining room (kitchen area) look a nice size but whether that's still a nice size with 12 students shopping in there, we shall see!

    I originally applied for other halls with ensuit but changed my mind last minute as I think it will be a more socialable and fun experience sharing with more people, and secondly the extra cash (over £100 extra a month) will come in very handy!
