It sounds a bit weird, all the rooms are octoganal and you have to switch every term (including one term shared I think)

Sure it'll be a laugh though right?

I visited it at the open day and it was by far my favourite. It is so much cosier and friendlier than the others. IIRC it isn't true that you have to do a term in a shared room, as you can opt out.

Sadly, even though I put it as my first choice, I got placed into Josephine Butler. At least it isn't Hatfield!

I think it's great, it's one of the smallest colleges and everyone lives in the same building so there's a real sense of community. You do have to move rooms each term (unless you're able to and choose to stay in your current room in the room ballot), although this means you can choose who you live with. You're expected to share for one term, although not everyone shares in the end

Probably worse to be honest. Everyone makes fun of you, its miles from shops/lectures/seminars or even a ATM, and worst of all there is the real possibility of a second Trevacuation/Trexit! (which if you don't know was when the electricity was cut for two days, basically nobody had access to their belongings and had to live on friend's rooms from other colleges/MC gym floor/get a hotel room at own expense.
