It’s a good hall for socializing. It’s quit and comfortable to study in the rooms
It’s a cool building, but the dining hall needs more tuning
A very social hall located extremely close to sports facilities, POWERBASE gym and many lecture halls. The catered food is good and extremely convenient especially when studying and managing other commitments like sports clubs. Best hall culture I have ever come across. Lots of parties and a great community spirit
I stayed in Towers Hall all 3 of my Uni years in the late 1980s. Dame Tanni Grey Thompson was in the Purple Bungalow at the bottom. We had some wicked floor parties and I absolutely loved it. Ocassionaly, I still have dreams that I am living there! ( I was on W8 all 3 yrs.)They are always happy dreams and I hope everyone who stays there enjoys it as much as I did. Ps we didn’t have mobiles, PCs or WiFi then and there were only 2 floors with pay phones (W17 and W5) plus 2 in the refectory. Imagine!
When I originally visited, I hadn't wanted to stay in catered halls, but was allocated Towers - the hall with the biggest catering provision! However, staying in Towers was the best experience and I made friends for life. My department, the Union and Powerbase gym were all within a 5 mile walk, which was pretty handy.
We're glad to hear that you had a great experience at Towers! Tendo

Great hall, if you're someone who's shy or introverted (like me) this hall is fantastic to help you out your shell! You will enjoy the nights out and you'll feel comfortable going back anytime you want - and the pre-drinks are great fun!
We're glad that you felt comfortable staying in Towers! Tendo

Best hall, everyone together in one building, you get really close to everyone in the hall as you eat together and new dining hall and common room are great
I love Towers! Best hall to live in by far! I love the family atmosphere and how sociable it is. The location is perfect and being catered 7 days a week is a blessing!
The one thing that I will never forget in my lifetime is the time I had in Towers. I even have a Towers Tattoo
The number one student hall for socialising. With everyone in one block, the hall family spirit is unrivalled and the inclusivity and atmosphere makes sure you have a great time. Catered 7 times a week is a god send, and the halls Committee makes sure you have the best uni experience possible. Also a Hall known for its sporting prowess, being one of the 'big' sporting halls in the university's IMS programme.
Good luck finding a hall with better spirit than this! You move in with strangers but it's safe to say they will be your life long friends.
A great place to get to know people, very large rooms
In my review towers is a very good hall I would highly recommend to new freshers applying for university it gives you a social bond between everyone who lives here.
Great hall with great people and staff, food could be better but not a massive issue. Great social hall with lots of activities and nights outs. Common room could be more welcoming.
Loads of fun, very social, not the best food and expensive but nice rooms and is worth it
Best 4 months ever, common room needs to be bigger though
Towers hall is life, towers hall is love ❤️
Incredibly social hall in a great location
I went in not expecting anything and it has been one of the greatest experiences of uni so far. The food is ok, but it has been helpful that it is a balanced diet and I'm being fed regularly. The common room is not great, however, this is the only real negative I can give towers.
Very close knit environment. Everyone is really friendly. Very convenient location for getting involved with everything around uni. Brilliant view and room quality. Some aspects like the lifts could do with a update.
No one chooses Towers to be there first choice as a first year but every single student who gets put there loves it and any guests they have come round wish they were in that accommodation! 1/3 of the accommodation is returners who loved it so much that they just want to relive the experience all over again, and those who don't get in are always visiting us because they miss being in the best hall that much!
Great location and hall, close to town
Very nice room, clean good furniture and size. Wish there was a common social space on each floor
The location and accommodation is good, but the food and times of meals aren't great. Also the accommodation gets very messy at the weekends when it isn't cleaned
Great hall overall, good position within campus so lectures are easy to make, bedrooms are spacious and comfortable and food is decent.
Towers was located close to everything I needed and it was easy to socialise there
Great campus, everything you need, cheap living for students.
Excellent warden team, great social opportunities but Hall management needs some improvement
Love how communal and sociable it is
Brilliant social life including freshers. Awesome!
Amazing hall made great friends, beautiful views and biggest rooms on campus! Perfect location in relation to town and union and not far from library.
Towers unique location, people and atmosphere is what makes it one of the best halls on campus.
You live with people that become your best friends. You get to eat every meal with all the 300 people you live with and make more friends that way! Plus you can have huge pres on your floors and socials for guys and girls which allows you to get to know everyone even better. I've definitely made friends for life living here!
Towers is an absolutely wonderful accommodation with amazing views (if you are floor 4 or above). It is fully catered and the food can get a little repetitive during the year; especially if you are a fussy eater. However, the actual rooms you get are very good. Towers boasts some of the largest rooms on campus, with a 4-foot bed (small double sized), a huge wrap-around desk, a three door wardrobe with a full length mirror, a huge window that lets in lots of light, and a sink that is built into a cabinet with a mirror and a mirror light as well.
The catered accommodation food is very repetitive and heavy, but decent. The common room is absolutely terrible - not a social place at all only used for drinking before a night out. Quite a small hall, but good for getting to know everybody easier than having blocks.
