Definitely a weird experience living in college rather than halls. Great place though, bar and JCR downstairs, shop, cafe, decent food: overall pretty good. We had smaller pantries instead of kitchens which meant there wasn’t much space or really a communal area for the floor - made the initial socialising a little harder. Room was good - not ensuite but not far from a loo, though mine was on the wrong side of the corridor for the shower. Storage decent and had a sink. There are also far better rooms in college so considering mine was on the lower end I had no problems at all. Only downfall for me was not having a fully function kitchen and having to adjust to eating food at set meal times (usually 2 hour periods where you can come and go - Collingwood is a catered college), but if you’ve come from a boarding school this probably isn’t so weird. Little far up the hill for my liking, bout a half hour walk to and from town, but the busses are either free with a campus card or just £1.
