Loved Elvyn and the warden team is incredible! It was so nice to have meals cooked for me in the catered hall!
It was difficult due to covid. But all in all it is a great place to live
Elvyn is a lovely sociable hall. Only issue is if you are facing the quad it can be very noisy.
big blocky building with some plants and poor food
Great community feeling and amenities
Is a really good hall and has a lot to offer
Elvyn Richards is a pretty good accommodation.
Generally, the hall is pretty safe. It’s located in a very convenient location and the rooms are a good size!
Turned out better than the photos online and the rooms are significantly bigger in person and the size of the room is ideal and cozy for any student.
Good size room, small double bed, large desk, lots of storage, en-suite with powerful shower, good catered food
Great Hall filled with interesting people, amazing atmosphere, food and location. Definitely will recommend and will be returning.
Good facility, nice people, catered
no hallnet for my laptop all day，no internet for my phone at night
Quad needs more, more trees, more benches, more character. Uni should help refirb the common room. Food quality needs improvement
very good community atmosphere within elvyn. i found the facilities were of a high standard and it was a comfortable living space so much so i am returning to elvyn next year. would recommend elvyn to future loughborough students and i found living here was a great start to my uni experience.
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.
Elvyn is by far the best hall on campus. I love it so much that I am on the hall committee and staying here for another year instead of getting a house!
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.
It’s an extremely sociable hall, room is size is good and there is a big shared kitchen for each flat. Caterer food is good too
One of the best student experiences when I was in it
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
Well supported if any problems come up, clean and very socialable
no point paying for cleaning as it wasn't really done and the catered meals were awful and made people ill
We had no WiFi in the last semester
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.
This was a great experience. I love the hall.
Elvyn itself was a very nice hall, the Head Warden Hillary is the best on campus by far! However some of the people that go there can be very....interesting
A happy and friendly environment
Arrived there and directly made a group of friends, the closest friends I’ve had. Also joined the committee the first year and helped organise freshers the following year, a great experience all in all.
Great hall, wouldn’t have had such a brilliant first year without this hall
Amazing hall with the best people but there is nothing in the common room and the wifi is terrible
Very sociable hall with a great atmosphere and very spacious en suite rooms
An excellent hall, with a great community feel.
One of the best social halls on campus
It is a lovely modern hall, some design issues and a horrible common room but overall a great place due to its location.
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.
excellent hall with good catered experience, excellent sense of community and in a prime location for engineering. good social experience throughout
It is the best hall at Loughborough! The internet is good although cuts out the odd time (same for all over campus) The common room needs to be put to better use.
So clean, great facilities, ensuite and large kitchen. Always warm.
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
I've had experiences in this hall that I'll cherish for life! I'm so happy to be in Elvyn Richards, not only are the facilities 2nd to none but the people in the hall are all so friendly and sociable
A tad on the expensive side but good all round
Best hall for the Loughborough experience!
Great hall with amazing rooms, facilities and people.
