What they say

Badock hall has a great atmosphere. There are also many opportunities available within hall. I particularly enjoy participating in the sport intramural. I would definitely recommend this hall.

Rooms are a lot bigger than I expected. And not having a sink is actually quite good because way more storage for clothes.
