WOULD NOT RECOMMEND. While on paper this accommodation seems fine given its size to price ratio, it is SO LOUD, and the kitchen situation is DREADFUL. You get a double unit kitchen to share among your floor, which shared with up to 17 is much too small. Except, if you're on the ground floor, you also need to go through the social space, which is far too small for ~40 people, some of whom use the kitchen facilities despite not being on their floor. Constant partying up to 3 in the morning with it feeling like the walls are made of paper makes it impossible to sleep or do essays/revision because of the noise from people shouting in the hallway. It is the furthest university accommodation from the site, with some private accommodations being closer than the far side of Westwood. The only redeeming features are the cleaners, the WiFi, and the property management. Would rate a 1 star if there was a total rating system. You are almost certainly better off going to private accommodation.

Pretty much the cheapest accom at around 4.5k, but the facilities are awful. Sharing between 17 people toilet and kitchen, cleaners complained and threatened to fine over mess but what do they expect with 17 people in one unit. Toilets always blocked and so awkward waiting. Rooms are big but not great quality, and WW is miles away from campus.

Westwood has great rooms-so big and with a sink there too to wash your face or brush teeth. Socially this was a rubbish place to be as I felt completely isolated from the rest of campus.

Westwood was honestly the best thing that I never expected to happen! Got put there as my last choice and was so disappointed. But I ended up having the best experience ever! My advice is use the common room to its full advantage! Met some amazing people and don't regret a thing! People complain about what is essentially a 15 minute walk to SU but if you live in leam its a 40 minute bus journey anyway!

Westwood was my 5th choice but I am so glad I got it. The flat layouts mean that you don't get annoyed by other flats around you because you have a floor to your flat and the flats being so large is a huge advantage in terms of having people to socialise with. Sharing the loos was never an issue and it's great value for money. You also have a washing machine in your block which is really handy. The rooms are also some of the largest on campus so you never feel trapped in your room if you don't feel like socialising. The only issue some people had was the distance, but I studied biology and so had the furthest to go and even then it was 25/30 minute walk max and there is a free shuttle bus when you're feeling lazy. Best place on campus to live!

At first I was really disappointed that I got Westwood as it was much further out than all the other accommodation, I had to share for the first 2 weeks due to Warwick accepting too many students and it seemed quite basic. However I am really happy with it now. It is right next to the astros and as a hockey player this is ideal for me. I think it is a very sociable hall to be in as there are 11-18 people per kitchen and 3 kitchens per block and all these people share a common room. The kitchens are a decent size and both the kitchens and the bathrooms have been updated recently so they're quite a good standard for uni accommodation. Also, it is only £100 a week meaning I save about £70 each week compared to the most expensive hall on campus.

Westwood is great! It was actually my last choice accommodation but so so glad I got it, the rooms are biggest on campus, sharing bathrooms is never a problem (never had to wait and they're cleaned every day). Yes it's a little further out but still only a 15 min walk to central campus and I also think this means people are a closer knit group because they all walk together, and if the social events are on central campus, the whole building pre together in the common room and it's just great fun! If no-one fancies going out you can all still chill together (plus you don't get the noise from the club and others that Rootes and other accommodations do). Overall, a great accommodation and don't get down if you end up with Westwood :)

It's a bit of a distance from main campus but you get used to that fairly quickly, because you're out of the way it tends to bring everyone closer. (Everyone I know who lived in Westwood had a big group of close friends because of it). You get used to the issue of sharing a kitchen and bathroom with a lot of people, this is the main thing that worried me about it, but it never really became a problem. It's good value for money and I'm glad I got put here over anywhere else, as much as I wasn't at first. It's no bluebell but for a budget I'd definitely recommend.

Very friendly halls with large bedrooms, modern kitchens and recently refurbished bathrooms. A nice off campus community feel. Would recommend

At first glance it looks like generic student accommodation, however the rooms are spacious, and the toilet/bathroom situation is not all that bad, finally its very affordable! Main positive with living here is that you make tonnes of friends, because there are roughly 21 ish people living on a floor. You will never be lonely, these halls are perfect for socialites!

Huge rooms, nice (shared) bathrooms, a little further away from the other halls but worth it for the extra space!
