Read The Lawns Reviews
While the lawns is good for social access it's distance from the university and poor on site staff performance leave a lot to be desired. It's not available for new students now anyway and there are far better student halls on campus
Although its closing, the lawns has been brilliant for the social side. Nit being separated into a flat of 8 people per floor means you can make friends with the 26 other people living in the block. Although this can lead to issues, on the whole it's a positive. The food on semi catered is basic, repetitive and made purely for bulk purposes, again, don't be ceoliac, I've spent most of the past 2 semesters ill from gluten and nothing has been done.
The WiFi is rubbish and there is no social space. The only place me and my friends have to hang out is the kitchen or our rooms. The actual kitchen and the rooms are small but lovely and practical. The kitchen is cleaned well daily. I love the location as it is in a nice village
I hated been in halls as a freshers, I opted for mix gender accommodation and I was the only female in a block of 10 males. We were semi catered so got 1 meal at dinner provided but there was only a microwave, kettle and fridge in our ‘kitchen’ which meant we couldn’t cook if we wanted to. The place was very outdated and lacked little things such as double glazing. Only upside was the rooms were very spacious with more storage than I expected.
The set up of the halls was perfect for getting to know everyone and having the opportunity to find a group that suited you. With a main building including dining hall, bar and social areas with table tennis and pool tables.
Although it's not the cheapest accommodation available at hull I'm so glad I've stayed here, you're all freshers together, and makes you're first week much easier as you travel with your flat mates to uni making it not as daunting. Another perk is the free bus pass to compensate for you being a bit further from the uni, it saves so much money! I have friends who are in campus accommodation and student houses for first year and they have to pay for all their bus journeys! Generally a fun place to spend first year to live and socialise!!
Very isolated from the halls but perfect to avoid loud parties. Although the rent is reasonable, there is not a communal area available other than the kitchen The kitchen is definitely not big enough to accommodate 6 individuals, small fridge/freezer and not enough cupboards. I prefer living in a bungalow as its quiet but I do think more effort should be made for students to have the opportunity to socialise with those in a block ( lawns party or something)
The cost wise there is cheaper places you could live with are slightly better. Common room and social areas are an area they need to work on. Are common room has a load of junk in and we can't get in it. But they do have a bar to hang out in on the site which is great. For social aspects it's great !! Internet has been touch and go it was bad to start with but they've fixed it and don't seem to be having any problems now
