Although it wasn't my first choice, i do love it now. I would recommend it mainly for undergrads because being a post grad in Mason with a beautiful roof top view is cool but I don't have a lot of friends here. Mason is really beautiful and very accessible to the city centre and the main campus.
Overall, the location, management and common rooms were very good. The only downside during my stay at this hall were the experience with my neighbours. My neighbours were not the most neat and cleanest but they were social. However, some problems faced with them was the disappearance of food and equipment from the kitchen and not respecting the hours or being noisy during the night
The halls itself look better than your average however they aren't well designed for the best social experience. The kitchen lay out is not practical for socialising while the sofas are so uncomfortable you'd be better off staying in bed. Many halls have locked gates or main doors in order to enter however such is not the case when it comes to Mason. The location is good as it is part of the vale village but it shares an office with Shackleton which is a five minute walk away. I can't fault the wifi or Internet services which you'll be taking advantage of in your bedroom as you scroll through facebook given that your social life in reality won't be blooming in these halls.
Location is nice and possibly fantastic if you're lucky enough to have a room with a view. Very expensive for what you get. Big kitchens, although space is so poorly used you barely have any space to cook and very little storage. Wet rooms are weird.
Mason is nice enough, and it is great being on the vale. Rooms are lovely and it's great having an ensuit. Kitchens are poorly laid out and you may need to invest in a table. But overall I'd be okay living in Mason again.
Lovely building, with adaquate space. En suites are nice, besides the fact that they do flood. Very light, and sociable. Although sociablity brought down by the fact that there is no indoor corridor connecting flats.
Wifi is okay, bit slow at times but I have no service/3G anywhere on the vale which is quite inconvenient if I cant get wifi but other than that the rooms and kitchens in mason are really modern, social and very nice
Amazing location- but as we're in the basement, theres lots of matresses and bedsheets left outside our door in the surrounding space waiting to go in a locked cupboard- its dangerous and just not visually pleasing!
at the vale, we are quite isolated - there are no supermarkets writhing easy walking distance, and no pubs or restaurants nearby… if you come here, definitely buy a bus pass; it will be your saviour! Apart from that, the rooms are nice and clean, and the staff at the hub are always helpful :)
A little bit overpriced but rooms/kitchen are modern and a decent size. No cleaners are provided but it has a great location on the vale and I would choose to live here again. A pretty social hall, don't choose it if you don't like going out and don't like noise. Also due to its high price be prepared for the abuse from other halls.
