It is very close to campus and only 10 minutes from town. There are 8 people in a flat and a communal kitchen/dining/living area which is good for socalising. Rooms are small but well designed and have plenty of storage space and are ensuite, which is more of a wetroom.

Decent and modern halls in ideal location. Some of the catered halls are more sociable and you can become restricted to your flat being your friends when in Lafrowda.

Lafrowda made such a difference to my first year. My room was the perfect size, albeit having a single bed and the en-suite bathroom was such a privilege. Location was perfect for being a business student as it was only a 4 minute walk from my flat. If I could go back to Lafrowda, I so would. Kitchen was a great social space too with double fridges, oven, kettle and microwaves. The best accommodation for freshers by far!

I was in old lafrowda and loved it, perfect if you have lots of lectures as it's on campus, short walk to town, had 11 in my flat so was very social

A really well situated and maintained halls, with a generally great bunch of people at a good enough price point. Perfect for getting to and from lectures as well as into town for shopping or nights out. Marketplace offers loads of items and right next to the SU night club

By far the best location of any self catered accommodation, backs on to the business school and only 5 minutes from the forum. Room is well equipped and looks new and clean (new lafrowda, not old). Socially one of the best accommodations but that's all down to how lucky you are with your flat as it's not easy to move around the block as doors to each flat lock. Overall, one of the best accommodations in Exeter.

I think the location of lafrowda is perfect in relation to the town and the university. The facilities in the kitchen are great with everything included; except a toaster. Some times the proximity to the lemon grove is an issue as It can be noisy and keep you awake/prevent effective studying, particularly on one occasion when the noise continued until 4am.

I'm in en-suite which i was definitely requiring and was glad to get it. I love the location as it's so close to a shop and a diner and basically all of campus! The accommodation location couldn't be better. My flat are great people, if not a little untidy but I love living with new people and a range of People too. I find that the noise level is decent and the closest hall to the end city centre so the walk isn't too bad even when wet.

Really good location close to town and main campus where lectures are. People are all social and up for a night out. Rooms decent size.

Room is expensive, however staying in Blocks with renovations being done made it massively cheaper! So close to campus and business school, everything is nearby!

Best halls on Campus, its close to the university centre and you dont have to walk half hour up cardiac hill to get to class. The rooms are nice in New lafrowda, but the people are best in old lafrowda. Either way youre gonna be in the best location.

Location - 10 minute walk to central campus and walking distance from all the nightlife in town Facilities - flat kitchen has everything we need and a carpeted sofa area. En-suite rooms are the perfect size and surprisingly well soundproofed Social - lafrowda is known for its social atmosphere, there's always a pre-drinks going on in the block before a night out, and my flat also have movie nights and cook meals together

Super close to campus and also walking distance from all the nightlife in town which saves money not needing taxis etc. The rooms are perfect sizes and the wet-room en-suites are very nice. Good social atmosphere and the flat kitchen makes socialising with the flat and other people in the block so easy.

Very sociable halls & nice big kitchens. However, despite the two sofas in the kitchen, there still isn't really anywhere that feels like a chill out, living room space.

Great location, loved my room - ensuite and nice size, and the communal kitchen area was big enough for all of us

Really good location, just a two minute walk to the majority of my lectures. The rent is really good value and gives you everything you need. Kitchens a good size, the only thing is the tables small and there's only six chairs for 12 people meaning we can't all sit together at once. The bedrooms are a good size and there's enough storage space to put all your stuff. The WiFi's not great and often drops off. Is quite slow and doesn't reach the kitchen.

Location is the best of all residences on campus - don't have to trek up "cardiac" hill to get to the forum. Also old lafrowda is actually great and not as horrible as those in new lafrowda make it out to be, accommodation isn't as pretty and the rooms are smaller but more than worth it if you need to save money

I was in old lafrowda, which was nicknamed the prison block due to bare brick and disgusting nature of the building, but it was also the most social and fun, pres were always being hosted somewhere in the block.

Lafrowda is almost faultless. The prime location as it's on campus, if there is a problem with maintenance then it is sorted almost instantly and the people who pick it are amazing. Only flaw of it is it's currently undergoing construction, if you are in one of the effected buildings say good bye to lay-ins, peace and quiet and being able to get any work done in your room from 9-5. Also the shower room, or wet room is pretty disappointing as the water oresspre is weak.

The location is great, it takes me 3 minutes to walk to my lectures in the morning and right next to the shop and bar. Very sociable and many blocks

The rooms are a reasonable size, and has plenty of storage especially under the bed. The location is on Streatham campus so it is quick to get to lectures and the main Forum, as well as not being too far from the city.

Mixture of different levels - one flat is mature students and they put out a lot of noise complaints

Such a lovely accomodation, perfect location, spacious kitchen area to share between 8 people which is a perfect number to not make it too crowded. Big rooms with en-suite bathrooms, only thing that would improve this accomodation is double beds

The location is really good, and there is a little shop close by. Town is only a 15 minute walk away and you are never late for your 8:30 lectures. The accommodation itself is very new and the cleaners are very friendly.
