But, is it enough for us to just refer the information on ICL website? I mean, sometimes words or pictures could be deceiving (in the sense of the environment not really the same as in reality). Any useful webpage to refer?
And, just curious, which hall are u living currently, sillyboy? =)
I personally prefer a single room, en-suite or not en-suite is ok. Moderately far (20-30mins walk) is possible. Near garden and not at the middle of the hustle and bustle of the city. Does Wilson House match them? HAHA..
hope u can provide some advices, thanks in advance. have a nice day..=)
Lol, of course not! There is never enough information when it comes to accommodation. You will want to know as much as possible about it!
For the rooms, what you see is what you get. As for what's on the outside of them, you will find out in a few month's time!
I am currently living in Pembridge and when I saw the rooms on the virtual tour last year, I thought they were pretty decent. Indeed, the rooms here are of good quality but to my horror, the exterior of this age-old Victorian house is just awful! This building is in need of a repaint urgently and seeing those peeling paint for this first time(4th October 200
made me cringe. Moreover, everything inside this building is just so old! A parent of a hallmate said those exact words to another parent during the very first day. Also, the shower in my room is not too great either. Even, the shower of the common toilets is better than mine! Having said all that, I love (yes, love!) where I am living now and wouldn't mind staying here for another two years! I've learnt to live with the downside of choosing a relatively cheaper en-suite room. (This is just for Pembridge anyway. Southside, Beit, Garden, Weeks are amazing! Wilson house is not too shabby too!)
Unfortunately, Wilson House is situated much further than that. You will need about an average of 35-40 minutes walk to college. Also, it is Central London we are talking about. There is no escaping from the hustle and bustle unless you are prepared to live in the outskirts, where some areas can be quite rough!
Lastly, go to this website to find out more about Imperial www.thestudentroom.co.uk
. It is similar to Recom but catered for UK and UK bound students. I hope this helps!
