Rate and Review
Pretty good residence to stay in. Rooms are not furnished so you need to bring your own stuff. Living experience largely depends on your roommates (especially if you get a 4 bedroom). It is a good, cheaper option to stay in if you're looking for a place on campus.
nice place, some rooms are better than others. Definitely relatively cheaper than some other places but is Unfurnished. Quite a bit of a walk to main mall.
Good place overall. Stayed there for a term. Unfurnished if you are moving in as a new, primary resident (except 4 bedroom). Get your own router. Quite location and not lots of noise.
