"One of the hidden delights of Longwall Quad, I:7 is surprisingly spacious
(5.2x4.1, 5.2x4.0). The two rooms combined make this the 5th largest set in
college but the near equal sizes of bedroom and sitting room mean that it
will not feature that high on a list ordered by size of the largest room.
Situated above the Home Bursory and Home Bursor's flat guarantees peace and
quiet and so may not suit anyone who's late night activities may disturb Mr
The other downsides of this room are that it has neither central heating nor
mains hot water. The first problem is amply dealt with by the provision of
two stand heaters (located in the stone fireplaces with cast iron ranges)
and the second by an in room storage heater which protects the user from the
usual unreliability of Longwall water supplies. It also dispenses with the
need for a kettle.
This is just as well as the rooms are also lacking in power sockets. There
is one in each room and I challenge anyone to light both the bed and the
desk without trailing wires all over the floor. The same applies for the
diametrically opposed locations of the power point and ethernet point in the
The furnishings are impressive, with a dining room table that can seat 8
people and quite the largest sofa in college. The view is of Longwall Quad
out of one window, and St.Swithens, the President's garden, deer park and
New Buildings from the other.
Kitchen facilities are sadly lacking and a trek to the 2nd floor of Longwall
I is necessary. Bathroom scores much higher with the best shower in the
block directly opposite, a bathroom next door and only 3 people to commonly
share it with."
