Living in Royce for both my first year and second year has been an absolute blast. I have loved every second of it, and would probably go as far too say as it being some of the best years of my life. The social aspect is great, such a community feel, the food is good, facilities are great and it’s so convenient for lectures. I’m even planning to stay in Royce for my third year, that’s how much I love it! UP THE ROYCE 🖤❤️🖤❤️

Awful. No service and poor network. Not worth 8k for one of the oldest buildings. Everything is falling apart- needs refurbishing. Module everywhere and thin wall. Didn’t choose the room, was allocated it and didn’t enjoy first year at all. Catered dinner is was too late for uni students and such small portion.

Royce hall is catered, regularly cleaned, has great location in the middle of the campus, very close to library, and has 2 common rooms. There are loads of social events throughout the year on top of weekly hey ewe and fnd. On the otherhand, the wifi cuts off in certain locations, specially in your room. The connected ethernet is very fast.

Royce was not my first choice of accommodation but after spending a year there, I wouldn’t change it for the world. A great sense of community and fun social events. Same-sex floors meant the shared bathrooms and kitchen were never an issue and our lovely cleaner kept everything very very clean. Would recommend.

Royce was not my first choice accommodation at Loughborough but it has been amazing. The social aspect of catered living has been very beneficial. All halls are cleaned frequently and just overall my experience has been great, I would recommend Royce Hall to prospective students.

I had a en-suite single bed room in Royce. The bathroom is small but has all you need. The room itself is very spacious and more than enough space and storage for everything i had. The kitchen in the block is small but for the weekend (as it’s fully catered during the week) it does the job. I would double check if you need induction pans or not and if you don’t know wait until you get here as I didn’t have induction pans and needed them! The food from the hall is great and there’s loads of options. Overall I think it’s great halls and I really enjoyed staying here 😁

Royce is an outdated, overpriced option for halls at Loughborough. The rooms have a multitude of issues and haven't been properly maintained and the kitchens are a joke. The dining hall is mediocre, while the staff are lovely, the food is served on a 3-week rota, is cheap and only occasionally good. There are no security measures to keep others out of blocks they don't live in, with anyone who lives in Royce having access to all blocks, flats and kitchens, with strangers being able to mess with fridges, appliances and food/drinks, as well as other shared facilities within blocks. The prices for the rooms are overpriced compared to other halls, with the only pros being the wonderful cleaning staff. If you are unfortunate enough to end up in Royce due to the outdated accommodation portal system (which really doesn't give you any choice of where you want to live), talk to your tutor if you are unhappy (I wish I had known I could sooner).

The showers are way too small, they make me feel really uncomfortable and claustrophobic. I keep burning myself on the hot pipes and knocking myself against the shelves. I find the letters of warning left in bedrooms and kitchens are quite rude, as I’m paying for the room, I see it is unreasonable not to be able to ask not to have you room cleaned on numerous occasions especially when ill, in a meeting, revising and on your day off. Both the kitchen and bedrooms are left in a reasonably clean state so I see this as really petty and insignificant, plus a waste of paper. The fire alarm going off once a week is so not necessarily, once a month is by far good enough. The food time tables need to be mixed up a bit more the last few months of uni it feels like the staff have just given up on it and we just get whatever is easiest and quickest. I also don’t like not being noticed when people are coming into my room I find this a breach of privacy and also really unsettling

Generally good experience, nice room, was in good condition when I moved in. Cleaners are fantastic. Constant heating problems, radiators often didn't work in the winter and it could take days for that to be fixed, then radiators wouldn't turn off in the summer, leaving the room up to 30 degrees.

Royce Hall is at the centre of the university campus, approximately 10 minutes from anywhere else, making it very convenient to get to lectures, labs, the gym, etc. The food quality is decent and the area is very open to social activities. The quality and response time for repairs by the maintenance team could probably improve, and the cleaners could use different chemicals to clean the rooms, as it leaves a slight smell.

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.

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.

Very sociable, friendly hall with a strong involvement in rag, action and sport. Just a generally all round happy hall where you will make friends whoever you are, wouldn't change it for anything!

A great hall in the perfect location near to the union, library, lectures and shop. Could do with having more social areas within each block though.

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
