The rooms are spacious and the double rooms on each floor were great to chat and get to know your flat.

The catering hall was brilliant to organise nights out with people from Lopes and Pennsylvania court. Being able to try new foods weekly was great, it was reassuring to know I would always have healthy food waiting for me without the stress of shopping and cooking alongside my academic work.

The green spaces near East Park are beautiful, I used to take daily walks through the wooded section with some of my flatmates and in good weather used to read on the picnic tables when the ducklings were out.
