I've got my last exam tomorrow so I don't actually think I'll get a chance to take the pictures today but I will tomorrow. I'll quote you again when I have
I'll break it up as a list
Close to Costcutter, pharmacy, the laundrette coffee shops, Student Union, Terrace bar, Fusion bar (football and sport screenings), the dirty duck pub, the bread oven (sandwich shop), piazza area and the bus stop
Close to path to gibbet hill (Life sciences, medicine and some modules of psychology) and the learning grid (mini library, useful when you need to print something in a rush!)
Can't stress the location enough, I love it
Common room is nice
Nice patch of green behind the houses
The rooms are quite big
If you are one of the houses closest to the SU (Flats 10-14), the SU can be quite loud (But I know if you expressed in the application "about me bit" that you don't like noise, they won't put you on these houses). I live in one of the closest ones and my window is close to the SU. Its bothered me like a handful of times, twice during exam period when I put ear plugs in. No one else in my house seems that bothered.
About general noise, no noiser than anywhere else really. You hear people walking by but thats the same anywhere. If you put in your about me section that you don't want noise or noisy flatmates, they won't put you near the noise or noisy people!
The kitchen is small. Its not uncomfortable but fridge space isn't super abundant.
About your flatmates, I have realised over the year that the problems with flatmates aren't just Whitefields related. I know a lot of people in other accommodations really unhappy with their flatmates, so it is kinda random. That said, because it is like a house, I think they take extra care when matching you up with your "about me" segments in Whitefields. The house next to mine is full of very quiet people, our house is in the middle, the house next door are loud. They really did a good job of finding people we would get on with. Even if you don't, a lot of people don't spend all their time with their flatmates.
The about me section is important and you need to be really truthful in it. I know some people who over exaggerated their want to party and have ended with flatmates who party every single night, and they hate it. Describe what you actually want, what you are actually like and you will be fine!
If you have any other questions, I'll probably answer tomorrow after my exam!
