Royce Hall has honestly given me the best first year experience of university. I was a little nervous when arriving at uni however from the moment i got there there were people helping me unpack and move into my room! Both the Fresher helpers and the committee were absolutely delightful. I found there was something for everyone ranging from punch parties and arranged nights out such as a boat party, as well as game nights and bake sales. I think one of the best aspects for me was the meals, you become so close with your Royce friends going to meals with them was the highlight of each day.

Covid-19: Royce have offered to keep the rest of my belongings in my room till it is safe for me to return to collect them.

Your hall basically becomes your family when you are at university. Royce was great as it has a wide variety of people and because it is in the student village it close to all the other halls as well.

There were no social spaces and compared to other halls with the same features I had it was a lot more expensive. Was in catered as well and would argue this was not worth the extra money.

I wasn’t a big fan of Royce hall but that was really just a personal experience . Really old rooms and I didn’t click well with the people. I’m a fan of new modern rooms, and wanted to be self catered. It’s okay for what it is I guess

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.

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.

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.
