Sidney Webb House student reviews

"Great social life. The committee organised a packed Fresher’s week, and events have continued throughout the year ranging from film nights, to a Brazilian Carnival evening, a pool party, Chinese New Year and 'international pot luck' cuisine nights."

"Nearby Borough High Street offers a wealth of different cuisines for everyone and transport links are good if you plan on going out."
