While James Owen Court's location may put some people off - roughly a twenty-five minute walk to and from campus everyday - its location in the middle of town makes it ideal for shopping and partying. Its hall management is unfortunately not as well-run as the other halls in Exeter, but its reception is open daily throughout the week for queries. James Owen is certainly one of the cheapest halls in Exeter and this should definitely be taken advantage of, because its large common room areas, kitchens and all en-suite bedrooms mean it is real value for money.

Hall staff were friendly, but the area is not safe. Sidwell Street has a homelessness and drug problem, and as a woman I actually don’t feel safe here at night (none of the women here do, we walk in groups after dark). A nearby alley is known for being a spot where many women have been raped, and evenduring the day we’ve been accosted. I feel for the situation of the homeless as it’s clear the government isn’t taking care of the problem, but that doesn’t change the fact that it is simply not safe. In addition, the acoustics are terrible. You can hear people talking no matter where they are in the building, and the doors constantly slam. The furnishings outdated - the building itself is in need of a renovation. Wifi is not reliable. Not a good experience.

Bad Internet but the rest was OK compared to other ones. The good thing was being in the town center.

Loved living here! Location is off campus but there is a free bus that runs to Uni and also into town. The halls often run great events that are super social and the staff are always so helpful and friendly.

The reception staffs are very friendly. However, the cleaners are so mean. I don't know why they are called cleaners. Their only duty is to ask you to clean the kitchen otherwise will fine you.

No cleaning provided, no proper social areas. Surprisingly good location though, near shops. Rooms are actually pretty nice!

20 minute walk to campus, which means you're a little set apart from other freshers, however you are really close to town so it's good for shopping or getting a job (and for if you're going out in the evening!) Halls are self catered and you are required to clean your own spaces, with the occasional check that you're keeping things tidy

James Owen Court is a very lively place to live, the rooms are homely and the shared space is just the right size.

Probably the best accommodation in Exeter. The closed off courtyard allows us to have a common area outside. There is also a ping pong table which was great fun and such an easy way to meet people.

it was good although I didn't enjoy the being woken up at 3am but that happens with any accommodation so it wasn't all bad.
