Read Exeter Halls Reviews
If you miss the boarding school mentality and you're scared of Northerners, Penny C is the one. Otherwise, choose any other hall, you'll have to live with people who don't have the same abandonment issues as you (being at boarding school can be tough, but bullying those weaker than you can really help you to get through it.) you'll probably have more fun, and the grudge that you have had against Millie since year three will all but disappear. I definitely missed the pleasure of cooking for myself, the food is okay, but after six weeks the two week rotation of chips and curly fries becomes wearing.
Catering was rubbish. The meals were really good, but the serving times were incredibly limited. It discouraged anyone from doing sport, which regularly clashed with meal times. The replacement meal service was difficult to use. I could only eat dinner 2-3 times a week, and the halls were totally unsympathetic. The halls were noisy. The walls were paper thin, so you could hear a lot of what your neighbour was doing. My neighbour would complain at me for waking him up when I set an alarm. There was too much light pollution. The keypads or swipe cards to enter the halls were regularly faulty. The doors slammed. People going into their rooms would regularly wake me up. Drying stuff was impossible. At £164 a week, they were FAR too expensive. An affordable room should be about £130 a week as a top band. This discourages poorer state system students from applying to the University.
