hi i moved into the gower building this year (now moved out due to relationship issues). It is very quiet socially! i think this is because it is supposed to be for postgrads but im a undergrad! It is a good size compared to all other halls, only i would say it feels very sterile and needs some homely touches. They say you get a sofa in the front room but trust me it is not a sofa, it is like those doctors seats in a GP waitin room! was shocked wit that. electric is paid by u on a top up card but is pretty cheap, it includes anything plugged into a socket e.g. washing machine, fridgefreezer etc. i applied as soon as i was able and that was my first choice! there are roughly 22 flats in the building and this year hardly any were taken. hope this helps xx
Is the exam system out of date?
