Im going to say this really simply. It makes life easier that way.
Suits people who like to party and are fairly easy going. I dont mean lose but arn't completley uptight. There is always someone to drink with, there is almost always a party going on and there is always someone awake no matter what crazy hour of the night it is.
It is not particularly asthetically pleasing and yes the roumer is true... The building did win an architechtual award for fitting the most amount of rooms in the smallest amount of space. There are cracks everywhere but it is so much fun.
It is also the closest residence to the unibar and most of the lecturers buildings and lecture halls.
This is a catered residence
is similar to towers in the respect that someone is always around and parties are quite regular.
The huts are alot nicer to look at but in my opinion are more flimsy. The walls are paper thin and you hear everything. And i mean everything. I think you get my jist.
There is a nice green an the middle of the huts which appeals to some people and it is a catered residence and slightly cheaper than towers but not much.
Oh and its a little further from most things but not far at the same time. 2-3 min walk so nothing terrible.
Is the main self catered residence and is typically alot quieter. Not to say there are not people there who like to party. But in saying that all my friends who have lived there say it is much more tame than other accomadation.
You get a bar fridge in your room and a lockable cupboard in the kitchen.
most expensive residence and is fairly new and nice looking. Some of it is self catered and some is catered BUT dont quote me on that.
I dont know much about it but im sure there is someone that does.
MTG and Hargraves:
is the off campus accomadation which houses students. It is 1.7km from the campus and is self catered.
Again I dont know much about it so maybe someone else can help there.
Hope this helps. It all depends on our personality, patience and ability to tolerate shit sometime. But by no means is any of the accomdation a palace. haha
