Q
Do all rooms have own bathroom?

Q
How big are the showers in the en suite?

Hiya,

Thank you for your question. The ensuites in halls are in more of a wetroom style, so the shower takes up a good portion of the ensuite room size with the sink and toilet on the otherside of the room.

Q
Do I have to share a bathroom?
By member448999 On 4th June 20

Hiya,

Sharing a bathroom will depend on which hall you apply for. Halls that have shared bathrooms will have multiple singular shower and toilet facilities in each flat.

Quad needs more, more trees, more benches, more character. Uni should help refirb the common room. Food quality needs improvement

Would defo say this is the best hall on campus. Love the layout of the hall and the quad makes it so easy to meet new people. Our kitchens are massive for a hall that only has to cook on the weekends as well.

I lived in Elvyn for my first year at university and it was the best experience, I met the most amazing and likeminded people (which I live with now ) Elvyn is a very sociable hall. The rooms and facilities at Elvyn are unmatched for a catered accommodation, you have a 4ft bed and your own bathroom which you will be very glad of, if you like your own privacy. As you get to cook for your self at the weekend it prepares you for cooking in the next year if you decide to move out. The food at the canteen is ok....I am vegetarian and there was probably 2-3 options at dinner and 5-6 at lunch. You have a sandwich, salad, soup pasta and mains options throughout the year and ALWAYS desert. I enjoyed the food but some of my flat mates were less keen but always like fish and chips Friday. I know me and all my flat mates would choose Elvyn again if we were given the choice.

I stayed at Elvyn Richards for my first year and applied again for my second year. It is a great place to stay as it is catered, which meant that I didn’t have to worry about making food while being busy with lectures.

Catered Monday to Friday for lunch and dinner means you won’t have to worry about shopping during the week and trying to figure out what you’ll eat in between lectures either. Spacious 4ft beds and a huge desk allow for easy working and comfort too. On-suite bathroom/toilet for quick and easy access when you need it

Elvyn has the perfect location, not only is it in the Village where most other accommodations are but it also has the quad which is a great outdoor social space in the middle of the hall. Elvyn’s socials did well at putting on some good events this year even though COVID restrictions limited some of them.

Very nice and modern flats and rooms. Very convenient and useful being catered. Can get quite noisy, as all the blocks are located closely together around a small quad, which isn't great when studying or trying to sleep.

Living in elvyn is great, so great I'm hoping to come back next year! Central location is really useful And the rooms are spacious;ore storage than any other hall. I like that it's 10 meals a week by 15 because it means you can get up whatever time and you haven't missed breakfast.

Yes it is the most expensive hall on campus but ... Great hall. Great people. Courtyard brings people together. Ensuite bathrooms and big beds makes paying a premium worth it. Loads of international students around, so socialising becomes more interesting. Catered hall so no more meal deals for lunch and microwave Mac n Cheese for dinner
