Settling into my accommodation as an international student was easier than I expected: the friendly faces at Reception were very kind and understanding. The Residence Life Team hosted many events to help us socialise during the first few weeks of term. Living in Lafrowda was definitely convenient because it’s only a 15-minute walk to the city centre and a 5-minute walk to campus.
