Had the best first year here and is really good socially, the bedrooms and bathrooms are the average uni size and it’s easy to make friends as there’s so many people :)

Q
Do you have to have part-catering? Or is there a way to have self-catering and still live here?

Hi there, There are shared kitchen facilities on every floor so it is possible to cook for yourself, however, it is not possible not to opt for part-catering. Part-catering is included in the cost of this accommodation. Lucie

Poor overall. Food is okay on occasion, dreadful the majority (serving sweetcorn with fish and chips isn’t normal). Maintenance arrive every now and then to do a once over but are about as useful as a wet fart - feel free to complain about something in your room, maintenance will fix it in 3-5 business years. Security is a figment of your imagination. Cleaning staff are a mix of lovely and vile, mostly vile - most will try and scare you into paying fines for things that aren’t your fault. If you’re doing anything online don’t expect to be doing it for long, wifi and ethernet stay up like a prostitute’s pants. The only thing Gordon Hall has going for it is that it’s close to town, but don’t let it distract you from the fact that Gordon Road is home to Cardiff’s poor and infamous, play dodge the crackhead on a weekend for some fun. Only have other students to thank for the enjoyable times because the university seems to have forgotten they need to run Gordon Hall.

Good location, however outdated property requiring urgent refurbishment. Bathrooms fairly new, but this is the only new feature. The kitchen has no windows which is inconvenient since kitchen gets humid quickly and smells. Each flat has 4 fridges to be shared with 27 people in the flat, as well as the kitchen is to be shared with 27 people- this does not work. The building is old fashioned and claustrophobic. Overall security is poor and needs updating-anyone could get in. For the price it is decent accommodation with the food provided- the food was the only nice feature as you would not want to cook in the kitchen with 27 other people. Per flat there are three ovens to share- again between 27 people. There are also only three sinks in the flat, so wake up early to do your dishwashing. There are only 2 washing machines and 2 dryers on site, shared with 91 people- again, wake up early. These machines were broken down for 2 weeks so I was forced to go to a laundrette. Happy camping.

I met some great people there and the room was very comfortable. It was great that the ensuite had actual showers (not wet room style). It was pretty quiet, which I appreciated. The kitchens, however, had no windows so they smelled terrible. It was always a mess. The location is great though. It's about a five minute walk to the city centre, ten minutes to Albany Road, and about 10 minute walk to the main building.

I love it here. It's nothing special, but the location is great, the building isn't too large, the laundry room is right outside, the heating is good and also storage.

Met so many wonderful people here! It's not like traditional halls with set flats, you can move freely around the building and make friends with everyone! It's also really close to town and the food at Trevithick is also fab

Gordon Hall is great and I have met some of my closest friends at uni living here. Good points include, great ensuite bathrooms, brilliant location close to town, no closed flats, open corridors (great for socialising) and its a small place with no on site staff (thats a good thing!) The only issues are the rooms are pretty small, cleaners are very picky about room inspections and the only common rooms are the kitchens which are small and have no windows.

This is a small halls but that meant that everyone new everyone else in the halls. There was always some group ready to party but if you wanted to stay in to work then it was never noisy. If I could go back I would. Best year of my life in Gordon halls. Also it was really close to town and all the campuses!
