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!

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 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!

Although Harry French is off campus it is one of the closest halls to the student union and the closest to town. I would recommend this hall to anyone coming to Loughborough university.

All the staff are really friendly and happy to help you. Any problems with maintenance etc are sorted really quickly. We also get notified when our parcels arrive. Lovely community and great location! Very secure and many facilities such as several laundry rooms and a very large common room! Bigger tables could be in some kitchens so that everyone can sit around at once but overall brilliant!

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.

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

Pretty good location half way between uni and town centre, like the layout as you can easily talk to other houses in the courtyard, only problem is the walls are paper thin so you can hear EVERYTHING that goes on

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**t 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!

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.

There are so many pros and cons to Bridge Street Row so if you get this place you will either love it or hate it. The location is amazing because you are legit in the centre of town right by the nightlife but it can be a trek if you want to go out in the su for the night. The accommodation itself is not bad it was refurbished so it is in good condition but has its flaws, like some rooms are bigger than others and the kitchen on the ground floor is mini compared to the others but there are a lot of rooms which means that you do make a lot of friends which keeps you social which is always good at uni. The wifi on the other hand tends to suck, it does work most of the time but when it goes off it goes off completely and you don't get it back for hours so your kinda left with nothing to do. There also isn't a common room which makes it extremely hard in some cases because you can't socialise with everyone at once because there simply isn't the space.
