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.

I highly recommend the Red Bricks if you can get them.

I looked at Blossom Gate and ultimately chose elsewhere. Once I was actually living in London, I remember thinking that I was very glad I didn't live there. I didn't know any other law students living out that way, and it seemed very far from campus/other social activities.

    • Either way, avoid the term "poly marriage" in your interview. Oh, and check the Ontario Reports, and the OBA classifieds:  https://www.oba.org/Publications-and-Resources/Job-Board The first posting on the OBA classifieds is for a 0-2 year call for a criminal position.  Mr. Confente has struck me as a reasonable man in my run-ins with him, although I can't speak to his virtues as an employer. 
    • Hey guys my stats are shown. What would be my chances for osgoode and other Ontario schools? Also, it is all full course load except for the last year where I took 9 courses during the year, instead of the usual 10
    • I don't want to be too affirmative with my comments because at the end of the day, it's still an educated? guess at best. Anyways, I definitely wouldn't put so much weight on your ps, it really is going to a small factor. If an 3.75 l2 and 164 didn't get you in then either look to your cgpa or improving your lsat. I would also double check that your l2 is correct. You can possibly call Queens and ask what they calculated your l2 as. 
    • Yes but you don't see the people that didn't get in with similar stats. I made the mistake of reading way too much into stats in the accepted threads and I thought I was in with my 161. If you're okay with that slim chance and have other options then of course that's fine. For me I only wanted law school and so my mistake really hurt me. 
    • I certainly hope so - I ain't getting any younger!
