During the interview session at the university of Oxford, and in particular at Balliol college I was offered a room at the college both in the old and new Warden. OLD WARDEN I must admit that I was surprised to see the state the room was in. It was quite big, warm (it was December), and it was furnished with a bed, a bedside table, a desk, a somewhat tiny wardrobe, and a bookcase. There was also a sink and a mirror in the room (the light above the mirror and a plug did not work though). The room was of satisfactory size and furnished properly, however, there were also certain disadvantages: It was right opposite Oxford's cemetary, which made it somewhat creepy, and the room itself was not so well maintained. However, there were advantages, such as a radiator that worked 25 hours a day, a telephone that could communicate with other rooms in the college, and as mentioned before, the room could nicely accommodate 2 or 3 people. Another disadvantage was the average hygiene, and the fact that the kitchens were way too small. However, Balliol college was situated at the center of Oxford, which gave me easy access to all parts of the city. NEW WARDEN I must admit that this was more disappointing than the old warden. The room I stayed in had no radiator (let alone the telephone which did not work) and it was quite small. Inside it was a bed, a wardrobe, a desk, and a sink with a mirror. I must say that despite few advantages, I was surprised at the conditions in which I found the accommodation of one of Oxford's most well-known and expensive colleges.
