Good people and cleaning staff. Everything else is immoral. If it wasn't for the people then it would be the worst uni experience in the country. Food is a disgrace, rooms are embarrassing due to cheap furniture which gets broken and then takes ages to get replaced. Only thing that saves Royce is the freshers helpers and the committee.
Royce has been the ideal accommodation which opened the doors in meeting numerous students through social activities and gatherings, involving all new students (freshers) as well as returning students within the accommodation to socialise and break the age barriers
Living in Royce as a fresher was a great experience. Being in a catered hall was very sociable and provided the opportunity to eat three meals a day with all the other students living in the same hall. The location was also fantastic and being in the student village made it so easy to get to lectures, the library and the students' union!
I can honestly say living in halls was the best experience ever. From the moment I arrived I was welcomed and settled in straight away. People were on hand to help you move in and the committee had organised a whole host of events and activities for us. It was great to be so close to everything on campus and being in a catered hall added to the whole social experience. There’s nothing better than going out for dinner with your friends every night.
Rooms are tiny, but being smack middle of campus helps making going anywhere within university a breeze. Dining hall food has variety in each meal but gets dull after awhile when you realise it's the same menu every single week. Many service disruptions (eg:water disruptions) have occurred which makes life troublesome for students.
Very modern and nice, only problem is because it's new there's a lot of things breaking/maintenance problems. The social aspect is amazing, lots of flat parties and close friends have been made, my flat has basically combined with two others to form a massive friendship group! The social spaces are great- free pool and table tennis as well as great study spaces. The location also couldn't be better in terms of uni being less than ten minutes away as well as the main clubs! Also several supermarkets less than five minutes away! So glad I chose here instead of Stoke Bishop, definitely not missing out on any social aspects plus in an amazing location!
So much going on - always something to do for everyone! Being catered gives a great social atmosphere and you meet so many more people. Royce is in a great location in the middle of the student village and close to all parts of campus
I have lived in Royce for one year, it wasn't my original choice of hall but once I got there I absolutely loved the hall itself and the atmosphere that came with it! I've never thought I wanted a catered hall, but it brings everyone together and is a great way to get to know one another! I loved it that much I will be back for my second year! Best time of my life in Royce hall.
cleaning staff are lovely, brilliant location, close to lecture theatres and not far from Union. Some signal problems but good for most phone companies. There's a common room but not much social space in accommodation but there's kitchen and hallways. Really good accommodation
