Rooms were very nice, and kitchen and communal areas were cleaned multiple times per week. Mayflower is the farthest hall from Uni campus, but a free bus pass is included and buses run to campus every 7 mins during the day from right outside the halls. The city centre location was ideal, which allowed us to explore Southampton a lot more than students from the other halls. The study area in block C is a great place to work, and I used it a lot during the summer exam period. My flat had some trouble with water flowing back up our sink - we were on the ground floor and the main pipe for us and all of the flats above us got blocked - but this was sorted and didn't happen again. Another problem with being on the ground floor was the noise of people walking past my window at night, although security were there 24hrs to move people on if they were loud. My friends from the other side of the block found that their rooms got very warm in the mornings when the Sun shone straight at their windows. At some times it felt like MF was less of a community than other halls might be, because of the scale of the place and the fact that most people don't use the common rooms. If you're confident meeting new people from different flats you'll make lots of friends, but if you lack this you might feel oddly lonely at times. The main thing that attracted me to MF was the gym, and this was really useful to have! I still prefer MF gym to the one on campus, and having it so close meant i had no excuse not to use it.
