Living in John foster is great in terms of the rooms, the available facilities eg. Laundry room, ATM, ticket machine. It is really close to an Asda superstore and just further down from there, there’s an M&S foodhall, pound stretcher, nail shops, a pub, papa johns and a few takeaways. However the only and biggest drawback is the distance from university. It is a 40 min walk or a 20 min journey on the bus. The buses aren’t as frequent as a Londoner like myself is used to but you can get around if you plan ahead accordingly. There are student tickets that for the bus that allow you unlimited use of any Arriva bus in the Leicester zone 1 which includes oadby and the city centre but a yearly ticket runs at around £360. You can also buy tickets per term which are around £150 per term but it works out cheaper to get the full year. The rooms (the pavillions) are spacious, the bed is only a single bed however. Ensuite is not cramped and there is a lot of cupboard space and storage around the room. Internet connection is generally quite good however 3G/4G connection is generally very poor wherever you are in John foster. There are a lot of events that take place, and a lot of green space and nature. Overall a nice place to live, and glad that this was my first year experience.
