Communal facilities? Erm, none - all rooms are ensuite. The kitchen for all of Grove D is on staircase 3, which can be annoying if its cold and raining, but isnt a problem most of the time. The kitchen itself is large and well-appointed (ignore the comments about Old Schoolhouse, *this* is the best kitchen in college!). Washing facilities are located around the back of Grove A; behind the kitchen, with three washers and three driers. The rooms are soundproofed with respect to each other, but not to the corridor; someone moving around at 3am can cause quite a lot of noise. However, most of the time this is a very pleasant staircase to live on. This is also the 2002/2003 staircase of the person who designed the front end (what you see) for this system.
