It is located at a very cosy and quiet area. There are motion sensored lights around hence walking at night will be safe. The library is not too far away from the court, making it easily accessible for students. There are 12 students per floor in the flat and we all share a big kitchen with more than enough space to accommodate everyone

Twyford Court is one of the most peaceful locations on the whole campus enabling me to get many decent nights of sleep! The location was so ideal for getting to my classes at the GSA building, being only a 2 minute walk away. It was also super handy to have a bus stop right next to my block so I could travel to and from the town centre with ease. In terms of the interior space my room was a good size and contained a handy sink. There was ample storage space under the bed and on top of the wardrobe for my bulkier items. A slight criticism would be that the drawers for storing folded clothes were really shallow so I had difficulty fitting everything in and keeping them closed. The door was also a bit of an issue.I understand the necessity of having fire doors but the fact that they are so heavy makes for an extremely loud bang whenever they swing closed after someone has gone through and this was irritating especially late at night. Our kitchen was really big for the 5 of us and a nice bright space to hang out in. We weren’t particularly messy but all had quite busy schedules so it was a blessing having regular cleaners keeping the place neat and hygienic. I didn’t spend a great deal of time with my flatmates as my contact hours meant that I wasn’t around much but we all got on well and would make conversation over cooking dinner etc. Overall I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in Twyford and would recommend it to anyone who isn’t particularly interested in partying all the time but wants a nice space to study and socialise with their fellow flatmates.

Twyford court. Ensuite accommodation perfect for those looking for fun with up to 12/14 people on your floor with the added enjoyment if private bathroom. Cleaners come once a week.I found my closest friends there. Love it completely. Wifi took a.while to be sorted but once it was worked fine for the rest of the year. Perfect location only 2 min walk to lectures.

The rooms are maintained well. Location is perfect (5 minute walking distance from all buildings on campus) and a one minute walking distance from the bus stop.

Location isn’t great, to super close to the main part of campus and the accessibility is pretty good. Facilities are okay, could do with a common room area though so there’s more space to relax and socialise. Room is big and bright with lights on but windows not great

Great location but quite expensive compared to other universities. Absolutely love the university of Surrey though.

Band C accommodation (without ensuite) is fine, has literally everything you could need and although you're given a tiny room, you can make it cosy and your own. The Wi-Fi is mostly good, and you won't get woken by the cathedral bells. Living in a 5 bed foes mean you meet less people, but the social scene gets easier as the year progresses.

The room is spacious and the toilet is very big too. The kitchen is large enough for the 12 of us but often there are difficulties when everyone is cooking together. Everyone gets along and so there are no arguments. In a quiet area and not far from the lecture theatres.
