    I live in the Harrow Halls of Residence in a standard room. It's not bad; the bed is a single, there is quite a bit of storage space excluding the wardrobe, and the shower and toilet aren't oppressively small.

    However, if the extra costs aren't cumbersome, a large room could be worth it, particularly if you have quite a bit of stuff to bring.

    Hope this helps!

    I lived in Harrow Halls for two years and I will be graduating from the University of Westminster this year. There are some definite advantages of living on campus: meeting various creative students, close access to the studios, the library and academic facilities, 24/7 security and lots of opportunities for student media, societies and extracurricular activities. Central London is not far away (20 mins on the Metropolitan line to Baker Street) and we have Harrow on the Hill town centre close-by for a cultural and social vibe and entertainment. I lived in a standard room and I dare say I was quite comfortable. There is storage space available and a really large desk for studying etc. However, as with any university provided accommodation, there are certain things you will have to learn to live with if you choose this option. You can end up living in the same flat with noisy, somewhat sloppy or not particularly sociable people but that can happen anywhere, even in privately rented accommodation. Noise can be an annoying problem sometimes but you can always negotiate with your flatmates or if things get serious, call campus security. It can sometimes feel a bit overwhelming, especially if that is your first time away from home or if you are a slightly more private person, but the great thing about university halls in general and Harrow Hall in particular is that it really starts you off with great fun and memories, academic flexibility due to location and an opportunity to network with a wide variety of people.
