Guys, just saying, I've just finished my year at Whitefields and I loved it. I don't know of any other accommodation block where the people got on as well as they did in Whitefields, it's what happens when you basically just have a little house to yourselves.
The downsides? The kitchen is a bit small, depending on which block you're in you can be less than a minute from the SU (a blessing or a curse, your call really!) and the odd layout means that the upstairs sink is in the shower room, so you have to go downstairs to wash your hands if somebody's showering.
This is hardly stuff to get hung up on though, it's one of the more affordable choices, great central location (for lectures but especially nights at the SU) and you will likely end up with a close-knit group of lifelong friends.
I know it's far far far too early but on the off chance that anybody reading this ends up in Whitefields 11, there's a note addressed to you hidden behind the wooden skirting that goes across the common room window, because we're Whitefields and we look out for each other like that :P
