I lived in Benson House for my first year. The location is great: 10 minutes from town, 5 from the library and 30 seconds from the club! It's a little further to uni (20 mins) which was sometimes a pain. The security were mostly friendly. The kitchen was a little small for 7 people and there wasn't anywhere we could all sit and socialise, but amenities were good. I had an en suite which was great, my room was small but was suitable with enough storage space and shelves. Each flat is quite separate and there are no communal areas so the social experience was quite limited, but I did get on well with the girls in my flat and went on to live with them in second year. Overall I enjoyed my time at Pin Hill.
