Cute, green, easy walk in to campus. Nice sized living space and amount of people per flat. Maintenance okay but not great. Could use more fridge space!!

I have loved my time in Tennis Courts as everyone is really friendly, the flats are good value for money and it's the nearest hall to uni on The Vale.

TC is slightly shit but the best location, the best after parties/pres, and by far the best rep and wildest stories (entire block party costing hundreds in damages to name one)

Best experience of my life so far. Don't be afraid of shares bathrooms, they're completely normal and within a day or so you won't have a care in the world. The social life at TC, as anyone will tell you, is unbeatable

Tennis Courts are exactly what you pay for; a cozy council house to sleep, eat, drink and defecate in. It's not a luxury, but at least you're not being ripped off like the Mason folk.

Extremely good value for money, the second cheapest on the vale and most have been refurbished so they look modern. Rooms and quite small but not an issue. Closest to the campus on the vale - 15 minutes walk to campus. No common room/social space but still has the reputation as the most social hall and I would definitely agree.

Tennis Courts is one of the cheapest and closest accommodations to campus, for these reasons alone it is the best accommodation on the vale. Tennis Courts is the most social halls of residence that you could possibly go to. Everyone is nice and social. We eve had two new people move into our block in tennis courts because their flat/block was unsocial and now they already love tennis courts.

Tennis courts has by far the best social experience of any of the halls at uob. However this comes at a cost, the mess and noise can turn people off.

Really good if you love partying, if not, then there will be a few people like you around. Would be great if there was a communal area for each tennis court block or something - you can eat in the 'lounge' of your flat, but it would be nice to have somewhere more social where people from the block and other blocks can come.

Best location on the Vale, bonus if you get put in one of the refurbished blocks. Kitchens are social and rooms of a good size too.

Very far from uni, slow internet and very small rooms. And the bathrooms are not good either. Halls are old. Don't pick this as your choice. It was my fourth choice. I was basically forced into it.

Really fun halls, though you are in flats of 5 because of the block layout it is more like a house of 30
