Located in South London, Great Dover Street Apartments is a perfect place to live for all students, no matter what KCL campus they are at, as transport links from Borough or Elephant and Castle allow one to get pretty much anywhere in London. Though the immediate area around GDSA is a ted bit too quiet and too residential, two student pubs (both around 2 mins away from GDS), a Sainsburys and a chicken shop are there to satisfy one's main needs. Tabard Gardens, a park right behind GDSA, is a great place to chill and have a cheeky barbecue in the summer. If one is craving more variety, one can always walk to Borough Market and indulge in consuming delicatessen, or explore Waterloo and the South Bank, where numerous Bankside restaurants offer cuisines from every part of the globe. GDSA offers a number of facilities, such as music practice rooms, the gym, as well as the social space with a pool table and a table football. Social spaces, as well as kitchens are regularly and thoroughly cleaned, which allows for a great living experience. Rooms are nice, too. A standard ensuite would normally feature a working desk, a bed, a wardrobe, shelves and a cupboard. This type of rooms sure could not be expected to be large and spacious, but most people nevertheless find it very cosy. The bathroom at an ensuite is quite tiny, and most rooms experience occasional issues with hot water supply, which may stop after half an hour of continuous use, but it is not that big of an issue if one would consider that a contrasting hot and cold shower strengthens one's immune system. GDSA is a very social place, where one makes friends seemlessly. Residence Assistants offer a wide range of activities from training and gym sessions to cooking classes, which allows students, both experienced and new, to get to know each other by working together. However, even if eventsone like that are not one's cup of tea, there is always someone in the smoking area of GDSA, which is where spontaneous nights out start and life-long friendships are made. All in all, therefore, because of its great location, good facilities and magnificent social experience, I feel that GDSA is a great place especially for first-year undegraduates, for whom it is crucial that they explore London and socialize as much as possible; however, students of other years will enjoy living there, too.
