great for getting to your lecture on time when you wake up at 9.10! It doesn't matter about klass being loud cause you're out anyway. Huge bedrooms and the loos and kitchen are cleaned. Definitely the best hall!!

Norwood house has been a great place to stay for first year. It's the second cheapest on campus, right in the centre of everything & rooms are a decent size. I've loved it here, but there are a few things to be aware of if you're looking at living here. It's right above the Student Union which has club nights on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Personally this has never kept me awake because I'm on a higher floor, but some of my flatmates have found it annoying. Living above the SU does have its benefits though - if you go to the club it takes about 2mins to get there/get home (if that), and you can get to a cash machine, bar and small shop without even going outside. Secondly, Norwood can be a bit of a mess. The electricity has cut out at least 3/4 times throughout the year and the hot water stopped working about 3 times too. These have always been fixed fairly quickly but it still a bit of a pain. Apart from that Norwood is great if you're very sociable and like being near everything!

Really great value for money, the accommodation is in the middle price range, and although it is more expensive than the Eastwood houses, it offers much much more. The room comes with a sink which makes such a large difference, all the rooms have large windows which provide great natural light and the room itself is quite spacious with plenty of shelf and closet space. Location-wise its the closest to everything in campus without a doubt; you can roll out of bed 5 minutes before lectures and make it on time. Also, the way the accommodation is set up with 3 flats on a floor makes it very sociable, and it is very quick and easy to make friends and meet new people. The only downside to living in Norwood is the fact that the SU is right under the building which has benefits for free entrance (if you're floor 5) and its close, but on those nights you don't want to go out it can get quite loud, but earplugs make it manageable. Overall great accommodation, very happy with my time here.

I've never experienced something like this. I am now never late. The club downstairs is not that noisy and obviously fun! Rooms are big, and the kitchen is just HUGE. I highly recommend it to all the people who like good view from the window and all the services downstairs.

Norwood House in the Uni of Bath has spacious rooms, kitchens and social areas. The value for money is really good considering what I have seen from my other friends staying in much more expensive halls with considerably smaller rooms (only advantage of those rooms are that they are en-suite and have catering cards). For those who are really scared about sharing a bathroom- I was exactly in the same situation and was horrified when all the en-suite halls were full! But from my experience I can tell you that there is nothing bad about sharing a bathroom especially when they are very well cleaned weekly by the cleaner staff. The only downside of Norwood House is the parties that happen 2 times a week in the Students Union which is in the same building as the hall. It can get quite noisy on these days but for the value of money, cleanliness, location (at the heart of the campus) and spacious rooms; it's definitely worth it! Love my accommodation!

Love love love Norwood! It's easily the most social hall. Location is perfect, it only takes you a few minutes to get to your lectures, wherever they are. Library and the SU are 20 seconds away. Staff is always helpful and friendly! The rooms are quite big and have a cosy feel to them. Kitchen spaces are alright and get cleaned regularly. The noise from the Plug&Thub is there but it's not as bad as you may think.

right in the middle of campus, clean and affordable for those who can do without their own bathroom, (its one a 3:1 share) could do with some moonlighting, then we'd be the cheaper quads equivalent

Easy to get anywhere especially the SU and small fresh so if you needed anything it was quite nice quick and easy (minus the queues). Noise was worst part but just gives you an excuse to go out

Good location and spacious rooms however showers are gross. Very noisy if you are not out on a Wednesday and Saturday. Lift stops working at night which is inconvenient.

Good hall for the price compared to other more pricier options on campus. With the south lift going straight down into the SU you don't even need to leave the building and there are shops, bars etc right on your doorstep

Such a great position. One of the more basic halls in terms of furnishing but everything else makes up for it. Floor 5 having FREE ENTRY INTO STUDENT NIGHTS is incredible (unless you don't like going out, then I don't recommend Norwood because it gets very noisy, especially on Wednesdays and Saturdays!)
