I absolutely loved living in Northwell. Gloucester road was super vibrant and full of quirky shops. It was also super close to uni compared to many other accommodations. The walk was 10-15 minutes at max. Northwell is fairly small compared to other accommodations but I was really social. I made loads of really close friends through Northwell, many who I'm living with second year. I had a larger flat so we had a cleaner come twice a week (which was provided and paid for under the contract i.e. no extra fees) which meant the social areas of the flat were always reasonably clean (smaller flats had them come once a week). Don't get me wrong, there was nothing exceedingly special about Northwell (it is uni accom after all), the beds were somehow smaller than a single and there is no elevator so hauling washing up three flights of stairs was always fun, but for being one of the cheaper accommodations it really had its charm and I would 100% recommend.

Ignore other reviews, northwell can be very social if you put the effort in, made some of my best friends here. The actual building isn’t beautiful but for the price it’s very decent and most rooms are nice and fairly big. Plus walking distance to the majority of big clubs !

Northwell is the most underrated accommodation at Bristol. 10/10 would recommend. You don’t want to be up in boring stoke bishop or Clifton with the other halls, you wanna be where Northwell is in the heart of the Gloucester Road near town. Flat 12 is the best

The worst halls I have ever seen. The building stinks of smoke and dirt, the more floors you go up the stronger the smell. Our room was on the top floor and had absolutely no redeeming factors to support the list of things that were wrong. The bed base is smaller than the mattress, and so the mattress overhangs and is unstable. The armchair is filthy and the desk chair made of is of old blue plastic. There is a leak coming from the skylight which will go directly onto the bed if it rains. The carpet and walls are stained and dirty. The room is tiny and does not in any way seem as though it should be a bedroom in the first place. There is no window.

Old and decrepit, walls and carpets are rancid. Cleaners try and charge you for having a plate out. Social life is okay but lots of weirdos, one girl has such bad b.o. her whole flat stinks. RIP.

Most exciting area of Bristol where all the decent clubs are (and in close proximity to the Grecian which your wallet will come to hate). Rooms good sized and have sinks. Common room isn't great and the flats don't have sofa-ed living spaces which would be nice. Very cheap.

My friend recommend Northwell because of the distance from the university (not at all on campus but still a reasonable walk) and the fact it's just down the road from Stokes Croft, a cultural hub. I'm incredibly happy with my choice. Common room is small but pre-drinks and socialising normally happens in someone's kitchen. Some rooms don't have a window but have a skylight instead - £10/week is knocked off rent for these. The rent in general is very reasonable and Northwell is so much better than University Hall, which is the same price. The location means that supermarkets are close so you don't have to fork out at the campus (Stoke Bishop) shop on alcohol and food. Also in Stoke Bishop there are security checks at the bus stop so you can't take any drinks on, even water which is really annoying. All in all Northwell House is a great halls and everyone makes friends with everyone, because they all have basically the same mentality.

By far the best hall on campus, massively underestimated, everyone knows everyone and the rooms are the best, only one street from the main buildings on campus.

Out of the way of all the other halls. Gives you more of an experience of the City and the fantastic culture around Gloucester Rd and Stokes Croft. No-one will have heard of it but its a great place to live. Only one common room but people seem to work round it and its pretty social regardless. If you'd miss a student bar then don't bother with here. If you prefer the more out of the way cultured places this one is for you!
