The only reason I have given internet four stars out of five is the unreliability of eduroam in my final year, but improvements have been made and UH WiFi is there as a backup. Besides that, my halls experience has been brilliant and I've stayed in halls every year of my course.
I had a poor experience with my halls as I was put into a flat with mostly foreign exchange students, which meant they were leaving within a few months and were not interested in making friends. There was also fights within my flatmates and I barely felt comfortable leaving my room. I moved out by christmas. The room itself was clean and comfortable.
Paid a lot for my accommodation however it was excellent. Questionnaire I was given meant I was put with students with similar interests to me. Hence I met my two best friends in my flat. Campus is very peaceful and beautiful. WiFi is very temperamental however it is Eduroam which is at every university. Rarely used the common room as it was small for the number of students in my block and it was regularly used.
- Disgusting housemates who do not know how to clean a kitchen properly - No social areas - Too far away from the other side of campus - Rooms are reasonable size and I love the on suite. I'm going to miss that. Nice hot shower - Kitchen appliances are good. I would have used the kitchen more if it were clean Other than that its a good hall to be in. First year in Shenley -- not bad overall :o)
