Priory hall doesn't look like anything special from the outside and the food catered isn't that great. But, from my experience I found this the best place to begin my uni experience. A minute walk from anywhere on campus and within walking distance to all the clubs, Priory hall is the most sociable place to be. Unlike other halls, you only need a key to get into your room. Your student ID allows you access into the building. This means that you could be on the 3rd floor and walk to your friends room on the 5th floor with no problems. I found the only problem would be the security, if they heard you talking in someones room past 11 they would ask you to leave the room if it wasn't yours. Also, the walls are incredibly thin so if your neighbour is playing music, it is guaranteed that you will hear it. But, as I've said a lot, Priory hall is the best and the food is edible just not enjoyable.

The staff are lovely and very eager and happy to help you with whatever problem you may have. The location is amazing - you roll out of bed and you're in university! The rooms are the perfect size and very clean.

Cold, cold, cold, cold. This is my life in Priory Halls, where they wouldn't turn the heating on (only about 3 hours a day). If you want a nice social experience where everybody gets to know each other this is clearly your choice, as you'd rather stay in the common room than in your freezing room. On the upside the halls are located in a central location, being literally 2 minutes away from every uni building.

It is a great hall for anybody who can afford it. Unfortunately I can't, and expected more from the social life

Priory Hall is a great place to make friends. You will literally know everyone. It is the most social accommodation. However, it is a s**t hole to live in. The rooms are nice but everything else is s**t.
