St. Swithuns Quad
Swithuns III has all the basic communal facilities you need - shower/bath and toilet on each floor (shared by four people), and the showers are pretty good, although not exactly of the power-shower variety. The kitchen is located on the first floor. However, if you are choosing a room in Swithuns when there is still quite a lot of availability bear in mind that some of the other staircases do have better quality facilities - the kitchen on Swithuns III is tiny, and there is only really room for one person to cook at a time. The cooker consists of two little hobs on top of something which supposedly functions as an oven but i have never seen it in action! Thus if you are a fan of cooking your own gourmet dishes a la Jamie Oliver you might want to try staircases 2 or 4 (or make friends with the people who live
there!) But it is fine for pasta, beans on toast and other staples of student life, and a poor kitchen is better than none (ask many of the residents of longwall or cloisters attic...) There are no washing machines on the staircase, but these can be found in Swithuns VI, so its not exactly far to go. Finally (assuming they stick around) the scouts are relatively cool, and dont mind notes on doors along the lines of "Please ignore my room today, it is a tip and I am catching up on sleep after a late night", which any of you who have been woken up uneccessarily at 9am on a Monday will undoubtedly appreciate!
