First year Harvey Court: Great location, right next to lectures. Balcony, double bed, ensuite... What more could you wish for!


The first year buildings (Stephen Hawking Building and Harvey Court) are a lovely way to live with all the other freshers and get to know everyone. Every room has en suite, the rooms are a great size and there are plenty of kitchens too. The gardens are also a great feature as you’re allowed to walk on them so they’re great for summer term revision/chilling. Only a 10 mins walk to college and the centre of town.


A really good location; only two seconds from Sidgewick Site. Only downside is that it is a ten minute walk from town and Caius library and Hall. Social experience is made great by the great people around me. The corridors are social and a clean and tidy place for us to sit. Rooms are big. They are clean. The walls are white so go with every colour scheme. The bed is only a single but it is comfy. There are good storage places – over the bed and over the door. All the rooms are en suite and the bathrooms and rooms are cleaned weekly.
