-My first criticism is that Churchill Hall is an absolute waste of money, both catering and otherwise. The catering is such where you are paying £5 a meal for a ridiculously paltry amount of food, certainly not £5's worth. The portion size is good for a pre-pubescent child. I really can't understand why the catering service fails to provide a sufficient portion size for young adults when they could surely be spending less on food. I don't know where they are buying their food from but they ought to reconsider what they are buying. Certain catering staff members are rude, others are very friendly. -The room itself, absolutely no complains. It is more than sufficient for my needs. -WiFi, also, no complaints. It is mostly reliable and mostly fast. -The location for me is very isolating, the large fields (downs) are excellent if you are into green spaces, running enthusiast etc. For me, they are like a wall between Churchill and Bristol city. -The buildings are clean.
When I was at Churchill I found it pretty difficult - two girls in my hallway left the university because they were so unhappy in the halls. If you went to boarding school you will fit right in. The food is good but meals are early and you are quite far from the city (40min walk) and the buses can be a bit of a nightmare. If you plan on doing extra curriculars or have long hours I would advise a city centre accommodation!
Had such a wonderful first year here! stayed in the smaller 'shanty town' (MPQR) block..... but everyone will tell you this is where the party is at! The rooms in shanty are smaller but I loved mine, it was lovely and light and cosy and we had 3 shower rooms and toiltes between 8 ppl. In shanty the corridors are mixed, which I think is a bit more fun. The food is amazing (don't tell my mum but better than at home) and it was so nice to not have to worry about buying food or washing up. You can book a late meal at the hawthorns (right next to the uni) or have one in halls if you know you have things on. Churchill has such a fun social atmosphere, and eating your meals all together makes it so easy to make friends. I used to really look forward to meals. There's a nice library and a television room too.Both were nice to use when I needed a change of scenery. You'll lave the staff too, the porter Ian is sooo lovely!! We have formals too, about every 6 weeks, they're a great!
Loved my time at this hall! My only negative point was I thought paying for meals up front would be cheaper but in the log run, less kitchen space and limited meal times aren't as peachy as they make out. The hall itself and social atmosphere were brill though! Also loved the location, who cares about being a couple miles away if you have a free bus.
They feed you so much chicken that you will never want to look at a chicken again in your life... Super expensive but the rooms are really nice and its good not to have to cook. Also nice to be in Stoke Bishop as its very social (but so are the Clifton halls) but means you have to get up earlier for lectures.
