# Images Description Basin Reception Ensuite
1 Lovely room. Feels nice and spacious. Huge desk which is great if you aren't super tidy/organised. Has a closet, loads of desk drawers and cupboard under the sink. No plugs near the bedside table which is not ideal but not a problem. It's right next to the kitchen which is super convenient but the walls are very thin and you can hear it every time people are chatting/cooking/using taps. Only really a problem when people come back drunk and shouty at 2am. Apart from the being so near the kitchen is definitely a plus rather than a minus. Because it faces another accommodation you don't really have a view - just into someone else's window. This means it isn't super light but that's not a big issue.

Having the kitchen as a socialising space is just 10/10, especially if you get on well with people in your house. Shower is fine (but does make weird high pitch squeals for unknown reasons) and there are two loos on the same floor. More than enough for everyone on this floor (only 3 rooms). (Edit)

2 This room, and indeed the whole house, is utterly underrated. The kitchen is awesome, the shower has great water pressure, you feel like you are living out when you are a stone's throw from Magdalen. The room itself is the largest and lightest in the house, given you have two big windows. The bed is very comfortable, there is masses of storage space, it is really quiet when the windows are closed. The heating is good, wifi good. Even the curtains and bed sheets aren't ugly. If there is a downside, it's that you're not in walls but you can walk 50 metres(Edit)

4 The room is peaceful, cosy, and bright. All the installations are very new, so the heating is excellent. There are lots of power outlets. There is a fairly normal sized wardrobe (though the hanging bit is quite small and there aren't a lot of places to put lots of pairs of shoes... girls be warned). The desk is big though, and there are 3 small drawers, 3 big drawers, a little cupboard, and there are two small bits of book-shelving. About 4 or 5 nails in the walls for hanging pictures, but there is one sticking out of the wall in a bit of a dangerous position near the sink, on which you could easily scrape yourself while washing your face or something, so be careful of that.

However the room is directly above the courtyard where Harveys gets its deliveries so if you leave the window open you will sometimes get woken by lots of slamming around, shouting, banging of boxes, etc. at like 5am. And it's very very loud. Also whenever taps are opened in the room next door the pipes make lots of annoyng noise, which is fine usually because you get used to it, but at night if it's very quiet it becomes kind of a focus of your stressed attention!

On the plus side: the showers in the house always have lots of hot powerful water, the kitchen is really nice, and there is a laundry room really nearvy in 2 Longwall.

Bear in mind all the rooms in Schoolhouse are very pink (pink carpets, pink duvet covers, etc.) so potentially not ideal for guys (or girls) who don't like pink.

Schoolhouse is a great place to live if you group together with friends.(Edit)

6 Very light as there are windows on two sides. It is well heated and in good condition. Overlooks the Longwall Plaza. There is storage space in fixed wardrobe and desk as well as under the sink. The walls are very thin, so much so that you can hear people talking in the next room.(Edit)
