This is from personal experience taken from a discussion on the mailing list

Having already arrived at Carlaw Park, here is a brief run down of what we've got. We're in a 3 bedroom apartment. There is University Wifi AP which supported eduroam in the living area.

Our kitchen has:

  • 4x Bowls, plates and cutlery
  • 1x Fry Pan, 2x Saucepans
  • Kitchen Towel and dishcloth
  • Stove and Oven
  • Fridge/Freezer
  • Microwave

Living/dining area:

  • TV
  • Lounges for up to 6 people.
  • coffee table
  • dining table for 4 (round and small)

In each bedroom there was:

  • Towel and face cloth
  • shampoo and soap
  • Full Bedding (2x sheets, Blanket with cover and 1 pillow)
  • Wardrobe (no hangers)
  • Desk with chair and light (on the wall above the desk)

We immediately bought:

  • dish washing liquid
  • hand towel for the bathroom
  • hand soap
  • water bottle for cold water in the fridge

The supermarket is about 10 minutes walk away. Hope that's helpful.
