About the house: good point: nice and warm shower/room, but when 2~3 of us have shower in a row, 2nd person can get cold shower halfway, 3rd will definitely get cold shower.
they said that we can get unlimited internet but its actually 15GB per person and super slow.
i barely connect to the wifi as the router was in someone else's room downstairs, and I have to use my own data most of the time.
when i complain about the internet, they said that they'll sort out the fibre internet thingy on 1st July 2016, but they never did. its already 15th July.
they did inspection every two months. but they never sort out the problem that we pointed out for them, but just complain how we use our studio.
in total, the room is nice and comfy most of the time, a bit too dark to study sometimes, poor service from property manager.
Oh yea the important thing. The driveway gets super icy and slippery in the morning till 10 am ish especially during second semester so better to take the stairs...if you dont want to damage your wrist or ankle.
if youre thinking of getting the room D (2nd floor of Buccleugh st side), just be aware there is less chance of getting sunlight (therefore more humid), high chance of being seen by the pedestrians, less opportunity to open the curtain/window to ventilate the room, the room is surrounded by trees so more chance of finding bugs in your room.
Hope it helps some of the students.
