Very good 8.0
I loved thelocation. The vibe with all the summer students and other families. We visited the art gallery that was nearby in another residence, which we really enjoyed. I didn't like that there was NOthing in the kitchen. If you say there is a kitchen, people will automatically presume there are some dishes and cutlery. There was NOTHING. Nor was there communication to say there is nothing, BRING ALL YOUR OWN STUFF.

Good clean rooms-bed not great. Has full fridge and microwave in kitchen area of room,bathroom has shower. It was difficult finding res at first. You can get anywhere on university via tunnels. YV in common area at end of hall. Not much food to get after cafeteria closed at 1900 hrs. No mention of bars by booklet in room or when you check in they say no booze in rooms but no way to check lol

This place is for students, not families. You need your key cards to often. To enter the building, to enter the floor, to enter your suite and also to enter each bedroom. And you cannot deactivate your bedroom lock. So if you go to the bathroom in the middle of the night, don't forget your key card! The parking is at a 5 min walk from the residence and there's no place to park your car to unload. On the other hand, the location is really nice, so walking to the parking was nice.

Poor 2.0
The parking lot is kind of far from our residence. I confirmed with the receptionist several times if I could drop Off My luggage anywhere nearer But was replied with NO. It was actually YES. This misleading almost ruined My holiday when we Had to carry our belongings walking in a hard Rain for a few minutes.

Pleasant accommodation on university campus with good public transit and nearby parks. “Kitchenette” is misleading as there are NO dishes or utensils or cleanup supplies and the only method of cooking is microwave (not even a kettle).
