      Accomodation

      it's pretty good, building is quite new. But I am not close to any of my flatmates that is a bit disappointing, also it (kitchen area) gets cleaned once a fortnight which isn't really enough as things get pretty dirty within a week and no one in my flat takes the responsibility to tidy up after themselves, so it is pretty dirty and should be cleaned more often.

      Accomodation

      knew that I wanted accommodation on campus, not being a first year didn't leave me with much choice apart from one building, so I just had to make sure I applied in time to get that.

      Less content than I thought, I would like more feedback on work but good facilities and experiment opportunities

    • Accomodation

      Started looking at houses first, the flats second. I was prompted by the popularity of finding next years accommodation
