I've really enjoyed my first year at Loughborough whilst living in Rutherford Hall. My social experience in particular was great as a result of a welcoming and activity packed freshers week in Rutherford, this allowed me to meet and get to know lots of new faces. The campus location of Rutherford is another benefit as it made it easy to get to my lectures in the West Park building whilst easily getting to my sport sessions.

Absolutely loved living here. Staff are super friendly, as is everyone in the block. For what you are paying you couldn't ask for much more (uni halls wise). Walls+ceilings a little thin so its important to be considerate of your neighbours. Otherwise no real issues. Would definitely reccomend

I’ve had an enjoyable stay at Rutherford hall for the year. It is a sociable hall with the catered experience making it easier to meet new people and spend time with others in your hall. The only issue is the social spaces with rarely anyone using the common room as it’s not very large.

One of the best catered halls in Loughborough, three meals a day 5 days a week. Small hall so very socialable with modern common room. Only negative i have is sometimes the food quality is not the best but that is the same in all catered halls in loughborough.

Rutherford Hall overall has been a great place to stay which prides itself on sociability. In addition to being catered, it also is right next to a shop and takeaway which has been incredibly helpful since the nearest supermarket is roughly a 30 min walk away. The cleaning is frequent but not thorough and I've had a few issues with my radiator however this eventually got resolved. The biggest inconvenience here is the ongoing building work that is happening close by which starts at 7am and sometimes continues late into the night. This has been especially challenging to live with since I requested to stay in a "quiet building" due to my insomnia and sleep apnea. Overall though, I have thoroughly enjoyed the experience of living in halls and would recommend Rutherford to anyone looking for a catered Hall in Loughborough

I absolutely love Rutherford Hall and would come back here in an instant if I could! My room is massive, the common room is really nice, the shared bathrooms have honestly never been a problem and I genuinely have no complaints at all! Being catered is lovely, the food is good, and the staff are all lovely. It really does feel like a family!

Rutherford is an amazing hall to live in if you want to be in the centre of all the action. We are so close to the union (perfect for nights out!) and also both ends of campus - so wherever your lectures are you won’t have to walk far! We are also close to Simon’s (handy on the weekends) and SPAR, which is very helpful. The catered food is actually not bad - my favourite is the sandwich bar which is great for lunch. However, the ‘good’ options tend to run out quickly and I personally think dinner is served a bit early (5-7pm). I would say Rudd has the best social atmosphere on campus, we have an amazing committee that is always organising fun activities and I think our hall feels like a proper community. I have enjoyed first year so much that I am living in Rudd again for second year, I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else!

Coming to Rutherford was a horrible experience for me. It was so bad that I could only put up with it for about a month and a half before I took a leave of absence to get away from this place. Here’s just some of the problems I came across: Accommodation management closed and only open to email and phone calls because of covid-19. Accommodation management fully ignoring my emails. Accommodation repairs took a full month before they managed to bring somebody in. My toilet was leaking. My cold water tap was crazy stiff. The hot water tap went from cold to boiling in about 5 seconds. Impossible to get a good shower temperature. The bedside lamp was broken. The room was covered in drapes of dust when I moved in, hanging from the ceiling and from my desk. 1 of my desk drawers were bashed in. The door stop was wrenched out of the ground and bent at a 45 degree angle. My desk had broken planks of wood in places. My kitchen cupboard lock was broken. A piece of my ceiling randomly fell off. . .

Rutherford is a great hall. It's in the middle of campus and is in a good location to get to lectures and sporting facilities. The dining hall is great with the meal choiceson offer each night. There isn't really a social space area because covid meant the common room couldn't be used and there isn't a seating area in the accommodation due to its size, but people ahve still mananged to socialise with each other.

Rutherford is in the centre of the student village and easily one of the most sociable places to live in Loughborough uni. It's not the most modern or luxurious accommodation with the rooms being very basic and varied in size (which size you get is just luck of the draw). Also it is catered 5 days a week with the food being ok, not the best not the worst. However it is one of the most fun places to live and you get to know everyone really well.

Value for money is awful. The amount we pay and what we receive is laughable, most of the food in the dining hall isn't very edible and has been stored out for a long time, coupled with some of the staff is very rude in the dining hall, in particular, the woman who works on the sandwich bar who constantly has an attitude and is confrontational when asked to amend sandwich orders (normally as she doesn't provide what we ask). Furthermore, many rooms within rutherford have an abundance of issues, which have been reported constantly now since October and yet to be rectified, such as my light by my sink not working and one of my keys (for my locked draw) not being the right key, which I've been told they do not have the correct key to replace. I am lucky my radiator works as there are many other rooms in my block where the radiator is not functional! The location of the hall is OK. Central and conveniently placed closed to lecture theatres is the biggest perk about part of rutherford.

I was assigned this and could only endure it for a month before I begged the accommodation office to let me switch to a different hall. I was the only International student which made me feel unwelcome and alienated by my flatmates. The kitchen had only two hobs which were shared between 12 people. Even though we were catered during the week, it was a nightmare to cook during the weekend. The hobs took 15 minutes to cook scrambled eggs. Forget about having a goodnights sleep in Rutherford- there are always pres which is completely fine during the weekend, but not when its a Wednesday night and you have a 9am the very next morning. The maintenance crew is absolutely horrible. I reported my leaky taps which wouldn't close completely TWICE. They still hadn't fixed it. Even after calling the sub-warden who came to check it out, it wasn't fixed. Only after I complained for the third time, someone came to fix it.The only good thing was Jayne, our cleaner who was always welcoming and sweet.

"The best halls on campus" is a lie that you'll hear throughout freshers, and in Rutherford's case is a particularly bad one. You'll probably need earplugs to even get 1 nights sleep let alone 39 weeks of it. They will charge extortionate fees for "Fresher's subs" which if you're not an alcoholic, you'll never use. In the bundle are "Hall subs" which they won't let you pay separately for, which again are a waste of time because this hall is worthless. And on top of that you have to pay for an overpriced IMS tshirt which you'll barely make use of, which made me think what part of the year the hall subs actually cover. Want to cook food on a weekend? Good luck disposing of the pizza and pasta littering all side boards, and it took me 50 minutes to cook an omlette on those crappy hobs they provide. Nothing but lies , a waste of money and terrible, messy kitchens. Rutherford is the only part of University I really dislike, and I didn't even choose this accommodation.

Hall life is fun - you are supported by a Warden and Subwarden team and a committee of second and third years who organise the social life and sports activities etc. You have wifi and an wired cable to use well. The location of Rutherford is in the heart of the student village and near a shop called the Purple Onion and a Takeaway.

Best hall on campus without a doubt (In my personal opinion!) Catered dining in a dining hall set up makes a really social environment where you can meet amazing friends. In particular, you make friends with the hall dining staff too!!! I stayed in Rutherford for three years because I loved it so much!

Incredible hall and stayed here for the full 3 years because of that. Every Hall has a Warden and Subwarden team who are there to look out for you so I felt very safe. I made great friends within hall and that is down to the Committee structure that encourages you to get involved in social activities such as sport and volunteering. I was in a Catered Hall too and I really enjoyed that.

Lovely social hall. I was in whitworth with was very central with great views and larger rooms compared to the rest of Rutherford. I did have a smaller kitchen although this wasn't a big problem being catered. The social life within the tower is great as everyone got to know each other and the hall in general was friendly and welcoming. Would recommend if looking for a catered hall and has a great position next to the PO on campus.

It's like a family; everyone knows everyone and it's such a warm and welcoming place - there's a reason I came back for a second year!

The food here is good with many choices available each day. While the kitchen could be bigger, the place is excellent value and is right in the heart of campus.

Had an absolutely great time my two years there. The social aspect of it is so much better than any other hall it out ways the choice of a different hall for better food or bedroom size.

It is quite expensive for the general rooms and food (food isn't great quality) however location is brilliant, right in the middle of campus and right by the PO

I didn't choose Rutherford but I couldn't have asked for a better year in a better hall. Rutherford has been the centrepiece in my amazing first year at university. It's great location means you are never too far from anything, it's really sociable and have lots of punch parties and pres in the common room. It's not the biggest or the sportiest or the oldest hall but it is one that you can call home.

Rooms are relatively small but well laid out. Perfect location on campus, I was 5 minutes away from my lectures! Despite the lack of social spaces in the blocks the hall is incredibly social and you get to know people from different blocks in the dining hall during meal times (which can be at inconvenient times!).

Wouldn't have chosen anywhere else to spend my first year of University if I could go back and choose. The catering was amazing and had so many options, and the location was the best thing about it.

Staying in Rutherford made my first year! The catering was really handy especially after 6 o'clock finish lectures! It's so good not having to wash up in the week and their is a variety of food choices. This year we had lots of punch parties in the common room which got everyone very silly and brought the hall together. The hall is in a great location, only 10 mins walk from practically anywhere on campus.
