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.

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.

The committee (2015-16) were the main reason I enjoyed my hall experience so much. They were the people that made us freshers passionate about the hall. The wardens were incredibly friendly and helpful, which made me feel very safe.

It's one of the finest halls on campus. Ideally located, good catered food, amazing social experience and pretty good hall service. Better than the surrounding halls. Love it in here.

i gave the common room a bad review because it was extremely plain , value for money was bad because the shower took ages to warm up and when i did it barely had any pressure

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

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.
