Overall Wilson House is a great place for first year students to experience the University life to maximum extent. The location is ideal. Paddington has dozens of places to eat and shop and the walk to the Imperial College campus is only 20 minutes through glorious Hyde Park. There is also a cheao gym/swimming pool complex at St. Mary's hospital (2 minutes walk away) available for the residents of Wilson House. The social life is also awesome. I don't know why but it seems that Wilson House has a generally more social vibe than the other halls I've visited, although that may well be bias. The entire basement floor of Wilson has a long corridor which connects all the kitchens which makes it very easy to "kitchen crawl" during predrinks and collect stray members before you all head out together. My room is great, I have a huge amount of space and I was provided with a free desk, telephone, desk lamp, bookshelf, fan, and desk chair. (I got lucky with the size of my room, some of the other rooms, especially basement rooms, are much smaller). However one thing I don't like is how hot the room can get during hot weather, we are not able to open the windows more than a few inches as there are restrictors in place for "safety" reasons. All in all Wilson is great and I would recommend it to anyone.
