Read Blackfriars Reviews
I absolutely love where I live at halls! Blackfriars is a very newly built halls of residence, meaning it’s very modern and fresh with no mess. There is plenty is space to cook your meals and socialise too with the rest of your flat, the sofas and TV make it so homely too. My room is beautiful and I love the space I have. The room comes with everything you need for uni. I.e. a desk, wardrobe with draws, chair, bedside table, full length mirror... and an amazing radiator for those winter months! The bathroom is lovely and such a perfect size for 1. The shower is amazing and apparently Blackfriars are the only halls to have glass doors on their showers, all the others have a shower curtain! Also, the bathroom light is automatic which is very handy for those 4am trips to the loo! I think the security at Blackfriars is beyond top notch too, I feel very safe where I live and I am already calling it home after 1 month of uni! 5/5 Stars!
Brand new halls. Was not finished when moved in September woke up every morning to machinery as building was still underway through the year until march/April when it was actually finished. WiFi is trash unless you pay the £350 WiFi package. Laundry room always full and super expensive (circuit laundry)
This halls of residence was the foundation of a fantastic first year at uni. Brand new, facilities such as great Wi-Fi and even smart televisions. Loads of space which makes it great for pre drinks and inviting fellow residence into your flat. In the summer picnic tables were put up outside which made the place seem more lively outside of the buildings
