i had a mouldy vent, a slightly dodgy fridge, and there's no oven (only hob and microwave), but apart from that, this is absolutely the best accommodation you can possibly have at chester.

We went during covid, I would say that without covid it’s probably a very good social place, loads of people and groups to choose from so you’re not just stuck with people you don’t get on with. However the common room was shut all year and we had to stay in bubbles of 15 (same people in your corridor) by Jan I’d say 75% of people had left the accom. I was in a bubble my own and was not allowed to socialise with anyone else. Also if your expecting to be allowed to be loud and have parties you are mistaken, because you live close to so many others there will be someone bound to complain to the porters and as you are on campus porters will be there within minutes to give you a warning. Someone actually complained about people playing ping pong on the ping pong table outside of accom because the ball hitting the table was too loud. Apart from that met some lovely people, had a good time in freshers week in accom, you have you’re own toilet and kitchen space which was good.

By Caitlin Youd On 9th June 18 verified Verified student

I loved living in Grosvenor house! It was great in first year to have my own kitchen and bathroom in my room. A lot of the reviews say it is antisocial however I had a completely different experience! Before we all arrived we started a group chat and got to know each other a little bit and then on the first night chilled in the corridoor and got to know each other! From that day on, nearly everyone had their doors open whenever they were in, or we would bring out pillows and sit in the corridoor and chill. We had a hall Christmas dinner and many movie nights! Honestly you just have to put yourself out there on the first night and you will have the best experience! I met some of my best friends in that accommodation

Beautiful halls, but as everything is in your room there isn't much socialising. You're limited to only being allowed into a certain part of your hall too.

The rooms are great- well insulated, a nice comfy bed, massive radiator, excellent cooking facilities, a great bathroom and space is generous too considering that it's student accommodation. That's about where the good points end. Grosvenor is incredibility anti-social and so quiet that you can hear people outside having more fun than you are. I don't know if it's because I'm on a bad floor, but from what I can gather most people in Grosvenor say the same. You usually have to depend on your new friends that you make at uni to get a friendship group going so you can join them. Not to mention the price of Grosvenor- if you stay here, you're probably going to need more than just your student loan to pay for the rent, so be prepared. To conclude, I'd say this accommodation is perfect for those who want an EXTREMELY quiet living space, and all the luxury you can get as a student. Just as long as you're prepared to sacrifice your social life.

Apart from the fact that it's the most expensive hall provided by the uni, everything about it is perfect, can decrease the rent by £10 a week

Grosvenor is great if you're looking to spend a bit more but have a fab room. Each room is En-suite with a queen size bed and kitchenette. The only problem with these halls is the common room is rather small and no one really uses it, meaning it's difficult to meet new people, but we made brownies and knocked on doors to make friends and that seemed to work!

Quite isolating at times however as long as you make the effort to socialise with other people in your block its easily the best place to be in first year
