My time at Harry French Loughborough has been amazing! My accommodation is fabulous and I wanted to live here for the next years as well.. We have got nice friendly neighbours. I am in a family accommodation and we have lots of space outside to play and walk. We have also been invited to social events organised by the admin. We truly loved it!

Due to its location, you can feel quite isolated as it's not on campus but it is in a great place for going to shops and into Loughborough town. depending on which bit you end up in I feel as though it can affect your time there.

Issues took a while to be resolved, the cleaning was very average and they did not really do much apart from wipe the sides and very badly hoover. Social it’s decent. We had multiple weeks where the wifi was not working and they had to keep resetting it but it was fine in the end.

I really liked living here this year. It’s conveniently located where you’re close enough to campus but also can easily reach town in roughly 10 minutes. There’s so much nature which is really nice and makes the place even prettier. Although I couldn’t always attend social events I liked how there were always options not only for the students but also the families living here.

Overall, halls has been amazing for me over my 3 years at Loughborough, I have been very lucky with flatmates; requesting to stay with one for third year. the location is perfect to get to both town and univerisity and it is a safe location. I got a very cosy room that I quickly made my own and really felt at home here.

Best location as it's very close to town, a bus stop and campus. For food shops it's a bit tedious as Sainsbury's is the only place within a 5-10 min walk, everything else is further Residents were fun, no one extremely problematic, Only major con is that the hot water in showers are linked w the kitchen Taps so when they're on the shower goes to only cold water

My experience within this accommodation was arguably good as the first year in accommodation. The location was great as it was in between the shopping centers, as well as being near the University which is great. However, there could be improvements in terms of the noise level since whenever I go to bed and especially during exam days/weeks, people tend to be loud and it can be difficult to sleep. In addition, the lights in the hallway are too bright when you sleep and you can see the lights shining through the door's opening side which can be annoying if many people go back and forth in the hallway, but otherwise, it is a suitable area that you could live in.

So far my stay at Harry french has been great. It's close by to tge student union and only 10 minutes away from where my lectures are. Its also close by to lidl where I do my shopping so it's convenient. The social experience hasn't been amazing but I have made friends with people on my course and are also staying at Harry french. The WiFi in my room isn't great but having an ethernet cable makes a big difference.

Harry French is a great location, being directly between town and campus. It can be a really long walk to the other side of campus but there is a free shuttle bus with our closest bus stop being about 10 minutes walk away. Being with Unite Students is really good - they are quick to fix problems, reception are really helpful and they take all post and parcels at our reception, which is amazing as other halls have to go to a central place on campus to collect parcels. The kitchen is a little small and the table and social space in the kitchen aren’t great for socialising. The kitchen is fine - exactly what you would expect from a standard uni kitchen. I am in courts where you’re only either ground or first floor and I have limited sunlight that comes into my room. There isn’t much shelf space in the room but there is room to bring your own drawers etc Cleaners are great (particularly Chloe) - everything sparkles on a Tuesday! A typical uni hall but what sets it apart is its location.

The price does feel quite inflated for what it is, but I suppose the accommodation does the job. The cleaner, Chloe, does a great job and is friendly and the reception staff are helpful. I have had a couple ongoing issues with my room that haven’t yet been fixed, but I’m hopeful that the maintenance staff will sort it out eventually. Overall, probably a better accommodation experience than most but not without its ups and downs.

Really like Harry French and the staff are all lovely! The location is really good, so close to the union and only 10 minute walk to town. Really good location as a second year student because it’s the closest hall to town where all my friends live, maybe not so good for first year students who want to be on campus surrounded by other freshers.

For the (almost) 3 years I've spent at Harry French, I've had a blast. The social experience at HF is unrivalled, with social events being frequently hosted in HF's Common Room (the biggest out of any other hall). HF is also the closest hall to town, so it's perfect if you need to go shopping while still being right next to campus. Any maintenance issues I've had were typically solved within 1 day of raising the issue and my flatmates have mostly been trouble-free.

The Harry French Courts are very separated and much less social interactions happen with people unlike the Lodges. The common room is a bit far and across the road which makes me rarely to walk up there. And the room I got is very small and doesn't feel fair for the money. However, the staff is very nice especially Rose and Chloe, maintains and keeps the place running smooth.

Maintenance could be a lot faster at addressing issues, a number of shared facilities in my flat are damaged but functional and I am waiting on them being fixed. Hot water taps are far too hot (they will literally burn you in less than 2 seconds). Cleaning is generally good but the bathrooms could be more thoroughly cleaned. The cleaning is not helped by the poor seals on skirting boards in communal areas. The ethernet is sketchy but the WiFi works very well.

Very good value for money. Close to town so shopping and going into town is easy. Close to campus too. Only problem is you aren’t with the rest of the accommodation blocks

I met some of my best friends here, the rooms are nothing special but the kitchens are lovely and spacious and great for socialising. The cleaners were always polite and did a great job. The wifi was a bit temperamental at times but not too much of an issue to put you off coming.

Besides having a small kitchen for 6 people- with not enough chairs for us to all sit at the table- I enjoyed living in HF. I don’t think the freshers subs were value for money though.

I really enjoyed my time in HF. The common room had just been renovated the summer before I moved in so it was super bright and welcoming for us to use throughout the year. My flat was an all girl flat so the shared bathrooms weren't an issue and we all cooked together once a week which was nice. Only problem is that with it being off campus it is a bit of a trek to lectures (avoid if an engineer) and in the winter it wasn't nice walking home from training alone. Close to Sainsbury's though (and now Lidl too)!

I stayed at a self-contained flat with serious problems: 1) Extremely overpricing, charging a student more than 700£ a month; 2) Poor condition, an 100-year old building with cheap furniture, rusty piping, paint falling apart from the walls and maintenance issues every week (water/rust falling from the ceiling, broken heaters, broken bathtub, pipes leaking water to the floor, tripped fuse boxes, spiders); 3) Lack of privacy, a flat on the ground floor means people walking close every time they enter the building, and using the 2-3 feet area outside the living room as a space for setting up fireworks, smoking, talking, singing; 4) Zero sound proof, I could hear every step/noise made by my upstairs neighbour until 3/4am, every night, and students singing/yelling in the middle of the street and opposite building. Overall, an extremely negative experience, with no value for money, and with the location as the only real positive.

Harry French is a very picturesque hall. It is located just a five minute walk off campus, meaning that it is both close to the SU and to town centre, though is a bit further from the centre of campus (where most of the lectures take place). The hall is fantastically run, with a friendly cleaning team and has a brilliant common room, allowing for an awesome social experience.

I stayed in Harry French for all three years that I was at Loughborough and I wouldn't have changed it for a thing. The hall offers a large variety of options; from sharing with 5 others, to flats of 2 or even your own flat. I was lucky to sample all the options and each one was great in it's own way. The management of the hall is brilliant too - you're in safe hands. Everyone who helps run and support the students in Harry French has the students' best interests at heart. They look after you when you need it. The hall also boasts a massive common room with pool table and ping pong, and the location of the hall is so close to town, Sainsbury's and the university. If you want to be in a self-catered hall with a great social atmosphere and close to all the amenities - definitely choose Harry French.

Harry French is quite simply a brilliant Hall. Naturally as a prospective student looking for accommodation in your first year at Loughborough, HF does not necessarily catch the eye: it is slightly off campus and is comparitively cheap compared to other halls within the campus set up. On the whole, it is a complete gem. Perfectly located just 200 metres off campus and within a very short walking distance off town, you seen realise this is the location you'll want to have for your first year. The 2nd closest hall to the union is also a brilliant facet of Harry French, for that 'stumble' back from a night at the union. I never intended to pick Harry French but quite frankly can't have seen myself anywhere else. A true sense of community and the actual set-up of courts, lodges and East Grove/West Grove is really well thought through (though if you can, get in courts). If you're considering HF, my honest advice: DO IT. Great hall, great people, and you'll have a truly brilliant time.

As a whole Hf halls facilities are basic but good value for money, on top of this they are cleaned to a professional standard weekly. It's in an ideal location although being off campus it is the 5 minutes walk from the union and 15 from campus. Harry French Hall was the best decision I made when going into university. There is much rumour about how other halls within our university don't get along but I can honestly say this Hall has the most welcoming staff and students. On top of that it has the most amazing social experience with Hall socials such as punch parties, boat parties, the winter and summer balls as well as our legendary hf day. I can not get close to even describe how crazy the social life is in Loughborough alone but being apart of Harry French enhanced this.

Living in Harry French has made my time in Loughborough uni. Located between the uni and town, it is so convenient for either lectures, food shopping and so much more. Their social events are the best. The committee organizes incredible social events and I had such a good time in all of them. Everyone is welcoming and friendly which helped a lot with my integration in the hall. Harry French is one of the kind, and I personally recommend to choose this hall. Even though we are off-campus, we miss out on anything. We get involved in every sections of the students Union which makes us a much more lively hall than others.

S*** rooms.. small bed.. interior looks dated and just not good at all. Sink is small and OLD. Everything is old fashioned. Feel so cramped in my room.. where as at home I have a massive room and I come to university to experience this? Wardrobe is tiny, like the size of myself. It is basically a kids wardrobe and I can fit like 4 coats inside. Bed is so uncomfortable.. I can feel the springs when I sleep cos the mattress is so thin. You can tell its cheap. Its just horrible. So uncomfortable to sleep in and I had to put up with it for the whole year. No views outside my window.. the window does not even open much. Have to share a bathroom with 8 other people and the toilets are all outdated etc as well... HARRY FRENCH IS RUBBISH. SOCIAL REPS ARE BORING AND GEEKY. COMMON ROOM REMINDS ME OF MY SECONDARY SCHOOL HALL AND IS VERY OLD, NOT FURNISHED, NOT DECORATED, LOOKS HAUNTED TBH. I do not recommend.

Rooms are nice and have enough space. The hall puts on loads of events to encourage socialising at night as well as during the day making sure everyone can feel part of its great community.

Harry French is the best hall in Loughborough, with a massive community atmosphere throughout the hall. The hall is the perfect location with a very short walk to the centre of the university, the union and going into town. The hall has the best social experience in Loughborough through a large number of events and socials, while having the biggest common room in Loughborough for you to socialise in. If you're going to Loughborough University, go to Harry French hall!

Very friendly management. Great location in Loughborough - half way between the SU and town. Has it's own reception for post. Best/largest common room- lots of societies rent it out due to location and size

Living in Harry French has easily been the best year of my life! there's an unrivalled sense of community spirit within the hall as its really easy to make friends with a large group of people not only from the many socials that we host throughout the year, but also through different events and occasions that we host. I loved HF so much that i decided to stay in HF for my second year rather than getting a house as i couldnt bear to be away from the vibe that this place gives off. I was originally going to be placed in Towers halls but thank god i changed my mind at the last minute as i chose HF and I haven't regretted a single minute of it. I originally wanted an en-suite (as im sure most people do) however sharing a bathroom between two other people is pretty much like sharing a bathroom with your family at home. Most of the rooms also have double beds which is an absolute bonus if you ask me! I would recommend HF to anyone that wanted to make the most of first year!

All you could ask for from a university hall. Everyone says university will be the time of your life and Harry French embody this to the max. after speaking to lots of other students at Loughborough Univeristy about their hall, it was clear to see that Harry Frnech go above and absolutely beyond. With their committee being consistently well organised and welcoming to everyone, even those who are shy, like myself, I couldn't of asked for any more. Thank you Harry French it has been a bloody pleasure.

The management of the Hall ensures that it competes with much larger and perhaps better known halls within Loughborough in all aspects of university life - something I'm immensely proud to have been a part of this year, given the initial doubts and concerns I initially had before coming to university. Through the various social opportunities provided as well as sporting and voluntary activities, the hall is able to establish a fantastic culture accepting and welcoming people of all backgrounds - epitomising what university life should be.

Harry French wasn't one of my first choices for accommodation before going to loughborough, but after one year there and hearing stories from other students in the other halls i am very very happy with what Harry French has to offer that other halls don't.

Great location - only 5 mins walk from SU and 10 mins to town. Not on actual campus and so has a real community/family feel. Very green and picturesque and holds amazing socials in the well kitted out common room - including outdoor BBQ!. Staff go out their way to help wherever necessary and make the transition from home to halls smooth and enjoyable.

The first moment you step into Harry French as a fresher you are met with an abundance of life! From then on it only goes up hill. The common room is a great size (BIG) for socialising and hanging out! The rooms are incredible value being one of the cheapest at Loughborough with more than what you need! The grounds are beautiful, as well as having ample of space to play ball games! And to top it all off, it is within 5 minutes walk of the student's union and 10 minutes from the town! AMAZING

I've had the best year of my life in Harry French - I ended up here by accident but would never change a thing. It's one of the cheaper halls but you quickly realise it's a little gem - the social life and community spirit is unrivalled! We have socials throughout the year as well as friendly sports events, volunteering, BBQs etc. Also, it's location means you're close to town, the union and most places on campus (gym, pool etc.) with a bus stop right outside anyway. The halls themselves have everything you need, trust me when I say you will be so glad you didn't pay an extra £2000 a year for an ensuite, you just DON'T need it!! The facilities are being redone next year as well so the rooms/common room will be sparkly new and well equipped. Everyone who lives in HF wants to stay or affiliates - you'll meet the best people here. My freshers year here has been like one big holiday and I've never been so upset to break up and leave for summer, we all can't wait to get back!
