Theres a bar there and a pool room. The bar had sky sports when I was there so was able to watch the mid week football.
Also theres a gym that you can use (I think I went twice)!
Other than that the bedrooms are spacious enough to spread out all those workbooks you'll be having fun completing! :sljo:

I remember there being irons and ironing boards in communal areas but I don't think there were any other laundry facilities. Make sure you take enough clothing for the week plus spare pants in case of accidents!

We are in Maples block at Newbold and there’s a washer in the 1’s kitchen and ironing on both landings. Perfectly adequate.

We have towels provided for our rooms and my tv has some Freeview channels and the Wi-fi just about reaches.
The kitchen has just had boilers fitted with a tap for brewing up so you don’t have to wait half an hour for the kettle to boil.
Someone did beef super noodles in one of the kettles which didn’t go down too well as these things are supplied for us and childish crap is just disrespectful.
We have a microwave, toaster and communal fridge and there’s a coffee machine on the ground floor and a snacks/pop vending machine that takes debit card too. (Only speaking for the maples block and of course you won’t know until you get there)

I’ve also been in St Paul’s where they didn’t provide towels and I hadn’t packed one 😨. There was an iron or two and an ironing board.

I take a little flask type thing and fill it with boiling water before bed so I can make a brew whilst getting showered in the morning etc.

The gym is ok, some go off site in the evening for local gyms with different equipment.

The bar gets pretty full but we take our drinks and sit in the blue room (for those that haven’t been, this will all become apparent when you get there and have your tour)

On our landings there is a seating area in the middle and one by your kitchen and we all meet up for coffee in there or play cards etc. I tend to go to my room about 8pm once we have had an after dinner coffee and chat 😆
You must be mindful of others who are further in their course and may have exams early the next day so if your noisy, expect someone to come out of their room and tear you a new arsehole if you wake them.
We had our anti corruption test at 8.30 one morning and quite a few of us were woken up at 1.30 by a couple of people being idiots, chatting dead loud and letting their doors slam shut. (biggest annoyance as they’re heavy doors so don’t do it lol)

It’s a great place and for us, there’s plenty to do.

There’s a no alcohol in your room policy and you can guarantee someone will grass if you roam about the landing with your vodka 😂
