Great option to have for freshers. In normal circumstances, here would have been a great place for Freshers, a community vibe about the place makes it good. Slightly off-campus, so not so great for Holywell/west park, but relatively central so caters for many courses. WiFi can be hit and miss (although I think this depends on blocks). Very well run, parcel delivery is ideal and never had any problems. Kitchen and bedrooms are all kitted out, although fridge space can sometimes be an issue depending on how many you share with.
The location is the biggest benefit - it's across the road from Union and a 15-20 mins walk to town. I had a friend who lived here in first year and saw that their rooms were a good size and relatively nice. Is it worth the money though? I would say no. My friends and I were moved to a 3-bed block which although convenient, meant that we were put in a much older building so the bathroom was outdated and honestly quite disgusting. The only pros were that they could accommodate smaller groups of students and the kitchen was big. The common rooms and study spaces were good too but I personally did not use them. In comparison to the newer Bill Mo buildings, this was really not worth the £6k I paid. On top of that, they decided to fix up the blocks from April all the way to the middle of June. Bearing in mind I was in my final year, imagine writing your dissertation and studying for essays while people are drilling and hammering and wondering around the flat... Just live in Bakewell.
Great accommodation - better than I expected for the price. Very sociable on the whole, however, there is no pressure to join in with events if you'd prefer not to. Located a few minutes walk away from campus, less than 5 minutes to the students union, 10 minutes or less to most lecture halls (depending on school/course), 15 minute walk to the library. Managed very well with a reception desk to collect parcels/mail from and deal with any issues, cleaning was always excellent. Never had any issues with wifi.
everyones loud as f*** and the walls are paper thin so take what you will from that

I stayed in William Morris halls in my first and fourth year at lboro uni. In first year I stayed in non en-suite flats with 7 people. Although it was a little crowded in the kitchen area at times, I made friends for life and really got involved in events. Final year, I am staying in somerton house with 10 other people. The house is excellent in terms of room size, amount of bathrooms and lounge area (needs a bigger kitchen). William Morris dance studio and student space is amazing, I go weekly for a break from my work without wasting any time. It is a 1 minute walk to the union, 3 minutes to the swimming pool and 8 minutes to gym classes at Sir David Wallace or Powerbase gym. 10 minutes to the school of the arts. Highly recommend for anyone based on this half of campus. Although it is classed as off campus, it is the closest to the union by far.
Thank you for this amazing review! Tendo
Thank you for this amazing review!
It is really near the Union and whilst I don't drink or enjoy going out, I have never been pressured and there is a Welfare Rep on the Committee who offers sober events like film nights and Bake Offs that I enjoy.
We're glad that you found something for you! Tendo

William Morris was a fantastic hall of residence. Whilst it is described as 'off campus' it is the closest hall to the students union, making it the most accessible to town and campus. The newly renovated common room makes the hall more sociable than ever and a community atmosphere is really fostered here making it truly a home away from home.
Being in halls is an experience. I would highly recommend it to every person starting university. I made so many new friends and i have kept in contact with many of them. The common room was also available a lot of the time for us to relax and wind down which was god to. Overall, the hall had a real community vibe which was excellent
Personally I think this is the best location out of all the halls in Loughborough. 1 Min away from the LSU, 15min walk from town, it off campus all your needs are in one space. Its a big ,Hall so plenty of friends to make. Everyone knows Bill Mo Pre's are the best
Bill Mo has the ideal location, being close to lecture theatres, sports facilities, the student union and town. The rooms are big and the flats contain everything you need. The hall is well managed, with helpful receptionists, and a well organised and efficient warden and sub warden system. It's by far the best hall!!
I know i'm bias but I genuinely believe BillMo is the best hall in Loughborough! Don't worry about the fact it's officially 'off campus' because it's actually the closest of all the halls to the swimming pool, most lecture rooms (except engineering), town and the students union. The union is literally a 30 second walk away as it's literally across the road - great for when you're stumbling back drunk! The atmosphere in the hall is unrivalled, it's so friendly and fun with such a fantastic community feel, I made great friends and met my boyfriend there! I was ensuite which is the newer blocks but if I could do it again I would be happy with the non ensuite or ensuite so don't fret if you don't get the ensuite you asked for! Billmo really is the best and your loyalty to the hall will stick with you for life! Not to mention we are sing off champions (google sing off Loughborough and you'll understand!) it really is the best hall in lough, apply for it and I promise you won't regret it!!
Great social aspect, freshers (etc.) however Unite are a joke, money grabbers and definitely would think twice about returning to a Unite-run hall. Got charged £83 for a mattress that was already damaged before my arrival. No point in reporting the appeal, it's not gonna work. Staff at the hall physically are great though if it wasn't for the students, social freshers it would not be a place I'd want to stay.
Great hall location ideal for town and campus life. 'Bill mo' becomes your family from the moment you move in... Friends for live can't help but be made. A great atmosphere to encourage hard work towards your degree while opportunities all around to get out and let your hair down. Couldn't ask for a better way to start university life!
Genuinely the best hall in Loughborough! Amazing community spirit, dominates most elements of hall life, best location 2 minutes walk from the student union. Everyone gets double beds, some rooms are ensuites. Most overprescribed hall for a reason! Known for an amazing social atmosphere that keeps people involved. Highly recommend!
Had the shared bathroom with 7 people which was much better than expected, not once in a year did I go to get a shower and someone was in it. Best social experience of all the halls, the non en-suite ones don't have the best social space e.g no sofas/tv but I wouldn't swap it for anything. Non en-suite blocks are more social and obviously cheaper. Definitely recommend!
I've had the best year of my life in Bill Mo. I've met some of the most incredible people and I wouldn't change a thing. Lived in a pov block in the mighty Whitehouse, and it was sick. Best location you could ask for! Such an amazing hall.
Fairly average experience - Some of the blocks are really run down (A-J) and a lot of things break/leak throughout the year. However, it is nice to have a 4ft bed, the rooms are a decent size and its great being so near to the union and town (although the library is quite a trek!) There was quite a disparity between committee and everyone else, i.e. they all hung out together and it created a bit of a divide in the hall, people didn't always feel included. I have met some really great friends who I am living with next year, but were it not for them it would have been a pretty poor experience.
William Morris is an awesome hall, the social aspect is quality and the location in respective of town and the union matches the quality! Price is okay in terms of hall prices, however when 'semi-refurbished' pay the same as 'fully-refurbished' that just does not make sense, but only real flaw.
