You cannot get a better location than Hatfield. It is 1/2mins from anything on the Bailey and is a short 5/8 min walk to the library. It is also the closest college to Tesco which in first year is a big bonus. The social scene is brilliant and there is something for everyone. I never had a problem using zoom for my lectures on the university wifi. Hatfield bar is pretty decent and the music facilities are awesome. The only reason that the cleaning is 4 stars is that sometimes the communal spaces get a little untidy during the weekend when the cleaners have a break. Not having a flat lounge was annoying during Covid because only Hatfield students who had done an lft in the last 48 hours could be in the bar/cafe so it was a bit tricky to have friends over if you didn't want them all in your bedroom. Outside of covid times, I would never have found this a problem. Postgrad students and a few lucky students have a different layout though.

You Pay a lot of money for a poor standard of accomadation. There is a large disparity in standard of accomadation across the college despite paying similar prices. That said, very very good location.

Despite it's less than ideal perception within the university, Hatfield is truly something special. The "Hatfield Spirit", while ostensibly excessive at times, fosters an atmosphere of inclusion and general positivity among students, which is not found in many other campuses in the UK, or even the world.
