I know that there is another thread over this that is a couple of years old, but I wanted to make another one to answer some specific questions I had. I am an admitted student, and have put down my deposit.
I) Room Size
The housing website lists Max as 10*12 doubles and BJ as 12*10 singles? Is this accurate; a single being almost as large as a double? For residents of Max, does your room feel small?
Max has private bathroom, BJ shared ones that are cleaned daily. Are the ones in BJ older? Is there a solid wall between showers, or only a curtain?
I have heard that the house culture at BJ is a lot more tight, which I definitely like. Is having a single a disadvantage when it comes to making friends, or does the tight house culture kind of make up for this? If I am somewhat introverted, but want to and will try to make friends,is it a bad idea to have a single, even as spacious as they are? Would it be more easy for one remain socially isolated in Max?
If I put BJ as my first choice, and paid my deposit in February,will I likely get it? Is it difficult to go without AC in BJ? About how long is the walk to the Reg? And is the area of Hyde Park a runner-friendly area?
