    I’m surprised nobody is mentioning the security problem. They advertise 24 hour security guard and CCTV, with cameras all along the building. The security guard is almost never at the post after 18:00 hours. Worse, they installed a faulty automatic door at the entrance for the disabled. It worked so slowly that they now just leave it open at all time. A week ago several bikes were stolen off the grounds, their locks cut. My flat mate had her bike stolen twice since she has been here! When she asked about the CCTV footage, they said that unfortunately many of the cameras were broken or needed replacement tapes or something like that. I thought they were digital. Hopefully theft will be the only problem we have to face, and not worse. People who do not live here scrape through all the time and hang out in the courtyard on weekend. It is a travesty for any serious student living here. If you’re up for a party, then this is the spot.
