does anyone know how small exactly are the 'small single rooms (not-ensuite' - i.e. the cheapest option for the halls at Astor, Campbell House East/West, Schafer, John Tovell, John Adams and Langton Close?

If you are referring to the most basic option (smallest room) which does not include toilet but shared kitchen etc etc. You have only two things... bed to sleep on and a desk to sit down and study. That is pretty much it. Particularly for those who spend most of their time outside prefer this type. Btw, I still have not gotten CAS letter yet.. if you are international student, may I ask you if you have received it yet? Thanks.

I've spent my very first year in an en-suite room but a shared kitchen. Living in a small room wasn't a problem for me. However, if you are really concerned about being claustrophobic, please check whether the room has a window at least. Well, most of the rooms have windows but it is something to check if you are claustrophobic.

To me, what is most important is the people who you will be living with. Especially, when I move to new places, I am always concerned about the people who I will be spending time with and sharing the facilities together. I wouldn't talk about my bad experience here since it would take ages for me to write down my experience here but yh, those things are quite important for me to consider when I move in.

I will be studying Msc in data science and visualisation so my department will be Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis (CASA). I received unconditional offer a few months ago. However, I haven't received CAS till now. I still have some time though. I will be applying for my student visa sometime in mid-August as I need to wait for 28 days until I print out my bank statement. Anyways, good luck with your studies and I hope things work out as you hope them to be
