    Can be pricey compared to other colleges

    Nice and well maintained, although the kitchens in the Margaret Wileman building are too small for the number of people they are meant to cater to

    The rooms in the Devonshire Road houses are really nice, well maintained, cleaned twice a week.

    We have to move out of our rooms in the summer to other rooms/get reshuffled then have to move again at the end of summer, which is really annoying for students who are here for more than a year, nobody likes to move twice a year. College has provided transport/help from porters for the move which really does make it easier but it is still a pain to have to do.

    Fun, but not awe inspiring/extravagant. Most of the stalls close before the night reaches its 'finish' so you feel as though theres no point in the last hour or two.
