I stayed on campus for 2 years and stayed in parkwood houses both years, the first year the house was great, freshly decorated, modern and functional space. Only downside was the kitchen wasnt a very social space as there weren't any comfy places to sit. The parkwood area was a great place to live very social, close to main campus and had the safety of campus security. Second year, all the pros of the area still existed but they house had not been renovated in a long time so was very old looking. My room was dark and and the decor was gross, kitchen was actually more social but much much smaller.
