I received an accommodation offer and it says they offer me a room in John Foster Hall, The Coppice.. It’s not a bedsit, just a normal en-suite, but how is it different from a room in John Foster? I am sorry if I am asking it again, but I couldn’t find an answer in accommodation thread.

Basically the Coppice is a bit older than the pavilions. That's about it, I think...

I received an accommodation offer yesterday (finally) and it says they offer me a room in John Foster Hall, The Coppice..

Ooh, the Coppice rooms are nice now, I've just been there. The rooms are all really nice and have recently been done up. The only bad thing about it is the bizarre magnetically locked doors which don't open - you'll see what I mean when you arrive.

And the two Coppice sub-wardens are great

Coppice has been done up so it is quite nice at the moment, and the kitchens are all nice and new. The en suite rooms have little 'pod' bathrooms which is a toilet shower and sink all in one little cupboard/room off the main bedroom. If you are lucky it will be a proper bathroom but most have these pods. Which flat are you in?

I worked at John Foster as a housekeeper over summer so visited Coppice a lot. The only difference between Coppice and JF is that JF mainly has very brand new blocks which are all en suite. Coppice (like Beeches, Wighton, Treroose, Spinney) is an older house which has been renovated to become student accomodation, and i think was part of the original Villiers site before it became JF.

If i remember rightly flat 14 has proper bathrooms rather than pods. Don't quote me on this though, i just seem to remember at least one of the rooms in that flat having a proper bathroom 'cos i cleaned it. The pods are quite tiny- small enough to sit on the toilet and put your feet in the shower while you sit on it. But they are pretty cool and at least you have your own bathroom.

You will have problems with the magnetic doors, when we were going from one flat to the other we used to get stuck in 14, hehe! Well we didn't get stuck- but Coppice has two main entrances and the magnetic doors split the main building in half. It just meant we would have had to go out one door, walk around, and go in the other. Not a problem for students in one flat at a time, but when you are cleaning going from one flat to the next it becomes a pain in the arse.

You don't need them, as they are provided, but it's a damn sight nicer to have your own...
