Off-Campus Housing: Cherryhill VS Blossom Gates

Recommended Posts

Hi :)  I've just went to London today to do some apartment searching. My priority is to find 1 bed-room or Bachelor Apartment since I prefer to stay on my own.

This narrowed down my choices between either Cherrhvill or Blossom Gates (625 Kipps Lane). 

I feel like Cherryhill is safer and closer to the campus whereas I find the Blossom Gates neighbourhood a bit more appealing since they are younger. I was wondering if anyone would like to share their experiences with either of the places. You can either comment below or if you prefer PM, that works perfectly fine with me! 

Thank you for all your help. It seems like almost impossible to find a Bachelor or 1 bed-room place at this time except those two places. :(  If anyone knows other properties still accepting tenants, please let me know! 

Thank you in advance!

How were the apartments at kipps - were they nice? Balconies? Carpets?

Rule #1 at Western: Do not live east of Adelaide.

I second this. I've heard good things about Cherryhill though I haven't personally lived there. You may want to look into Bayfield Hall for a 1 bedroom apartment as well. It's on campus but is an upper-year residence where you have your own apartment.

Cherryhill is fine... I lived there for a bit, just make sure you get a nice place... don't cheap out in london.  Cherryhill is close to a metro so that's good. Not sure about Blossom Gates. The best locations I have found to live was along Richmond St. 

Good Buildings to live in:

Luxe Apartments (right by campus)

- can walk to campus

675 Richmond (Closer to Downtown but still on Richmond.. Better if you have a car)

- 15 min bus ride


Also you could live in the Red Bricks along Western rd, they are supposed to be good.

    • How do you handle losing cases? Do you get better over time at trying to keep it in perspective, and learning for next time? Is there any way to shut off the spiral of self-doubt?  It’s one thing to acknowledge that every court application is a calculated risk, and that you weigh the pros and cons with the client in advance, and that you’ve decided to take your chances. At some level, though, you believed that the outcome would come out in your favour (especially as the Plaintiff), otherwise you would have accepted a settlement. The rumination on “maybe I should have said this” or “maybe I should have told the client that” or “maybe I should have accepted a settlement” or “maybe if I were a better/smarter/more experienced/more confident lawyer this would have gone differently” or “maybe I just fuck up the lives of people who trust me” keeps me up for weeks and the impact of any losses outweighs 100x the impact of any wins.

    • On test day, I was under so much pressure that my brain went on auto-pilot and my ability to methodically break down each question went out the window, even though I'd spent hundreds of hours studying similar questions at home. If your goal is to start law school in 2020, I think it'd be well worth it for you to experience that pressure before the do-or-die January exam.
