Rooms are certainly on the small side. Did that really matter in the end? Not at all - you get used to what you're given. Your first year experience is not going to be defined by the size of your room.

Kitchen's pretty nice. You get sofas and a table so there's a communal space. Sharing toilets and showers seemed to be a big negative to me before I joined, but honestly it's also just something you get used to. Not a big deal at all and you rarely have to wait to use the shower/toilet.

If you can afford more expensive accommodation than Eastwood and you're happy to pay, then go for that. If you want something more affordable, Eastwood is a great choice. The fact that the Eastwood houses are actually mini houses is really niche and gives it a real home vibe. Everyone else is living in gigantic halls but I prefer that home feel. And lastly, if you get assigned to Eastwood even though it wasn't your first choice (or second, or third, fourth or fifth like me ) no biggie! Halls matter less than the people inside them.
