Read Durdham Hall Reviews
Hi there all! Just want to put out there that Durdham is not “Deadham” actually very socialable cus we are all hiatt baker rejects also if you get Block A it’s refurbished and you get a double bed! It’s not GRIM I promise!! I’ll write another review later after freshers see ya later xox
I had heard all the bad reputation about Durdham before coming to Bristol but turns out a lot of us are just Hiatt Baker rejects so I didn't find it hard to make friends who like going out. Pros: en-suite, big kitchen and hall space, Stoke Bishop is like a campus if you want that kind of environment. Cons: High rent for what it's worth, the bar is usually quiet, need to get bus into uni, eduroam can be s***
Durdham has a reputation of being dead, quiet, and really rather s***. It does live up to this reputation. If you’re applying to Bristol, don’t apply to live here, unless you want to be in the worst halls that Bristol offer.
Very unsociable and quiet halls, hence the nickname 'deadham', 'boredham' and 'dulldham'. If someone asks what halls you are in, their reply to Durdham is normally 'oh I'm so sorry'. Having said this, if youre looking for a quiet uni experience with a guaranteed en suite it would be suitable. All the staff are very friendly and quick to deal with maintenance issues.
Pros - guaranteed en suite, big kitchen space/ living area, in Stoke Bishop with the other halls so in a great social area but not near the bus stop so not too noisy, next to the tennis courts with decent car park Cons - stereotype of being quiet, mainly due to lack of common room/ decent bar, Stoke bishop further away from uni than the city centre accommodation
