Postgraduates beware- these are not the halls you are looking for. Paper thin walls, minimal cleaning and almost functioning? appliances pretty much sum up my year in this place. You can expect to share a kitchen with up to 9 other people. You can also expect to have very little space for utensils and even less fridge/freezer space. Facilities such as the toilet and bathroom are best described as 'budget'. If you enjoy showers in confined spaces and toilets with hit or miss flush functions, then St George's might be for you. As mentioned at the start, any postgraduate unfortunate enough to have to do a tenure here will be simply lumped at the back part of the halls because 'it's quieter.' I can confirm it's no less quiet than the front part of the halls. While the location to both campuses is good and the internet is fairly good and consistent, this does not excuse the poor quality of these halls. My recommendation? Treat yourself... To better accommodation, elsewhere.
