A great hall in general, the management is a bit tight and the meal pass system is stupid past the first few weeks, as the caterers insist you have this piece of paper with your picture and name on despite knowing you all personally very quickly. Overall good hearty food and a nice experience, not quite the Lawns but definitely a great place to start uni life!!

I was in Thwaite Hall in 2013 so it may have changed a little since, but I can't stress how good it was as an introduction into university life. It is not like 'normal' halls which are set out in flats and blocks; it is a huge building with long corridors with shared kitchens and bathrooms at each end, which are cleaned well every weekday morning. Back lawn is absolutely beautiful for chilling. Tea time was a very sociable experience with plenty of choice, good quality food. Breakfast weekday was simply eggs, croissants and juice, while weekend morning was a good cooked breakfast. It is quite a walk from Uni (I walk fast and it took me 25-30 mins), but there is a regular bus stop directly outside the Halls. Rooms are pretty small but have all you need, the one JCR is awful so I ended up having up to 8 people squashed in my room pre-drinking and playing xbox, but to me this is all part of the fun! I saw the other halls in Hull so I can safely say I am so glad I chose Thwaite!

Sometimes you have idiots who blast music at ungodly hours of a weeknight without any regulation. But the social aspect is good. The rooms itself are small and not appealing in any way.

Thwaite hall is good in the sense that you can make friends with anyone, as the corridors are very open. However, some of the rules are ridiculous such as not being allowed to keep the door open in the kitchen due to poor ventilation as the windows do not open, which means when you're cooking the heat is ridiculous. Also dont take detergent with you to uni as it is a waste of money to buy as you can't use it in the washing machines provided (which there are only 3 of for 190 students- plan your washing time). However, the halls grounds are really nice and there is a fry up on the weekends.

I'm not a student but I certainly felt like one staying over here for a wedding. The price we had to pay for a twin room with no ameneties? £53 a night. Absolutely scandalous.

The warden is awful. Also, the university increase the cost every year, while reducing services such as cleaning, and the halls no longer hold formals.

Lovely setting, often vandalised by the other residents then rarely fixed quickly by the staff. Lovely Steinway grand piano.

Great place to spend first year, made some of my closest friends there. It's always nice not to have to wash up and chilling at dinner time is a great way to socialise, cooked breakfast on a weekend is also a life saver! Rooms are a good size, internet can be temperamental but there are ways around it, highly recommend as first year accommodation.

It has been alright, but hard to socialise with people as there aren't ways to branch out and bring students together as corridors are open to everyone.

The botanic gardens at the back of the halls provide a zone for students to chill out in the summer. The halls had just the right amount of people. Enough to speak to new people towards the end of the year and few enough that you won't feel dwarfed amongst the crowd

Thwaite Hall was a very friendly place to live; it wasn't divided into blocks, so we were able to make friends with anyone in the Halls. The grounds were huge and beautiful (which was a nice surprise, as I didn't know this before moving in!) The food was nice, you always had a choice of meal, and there was dessert and a salad bar, too. While it's closer to the campus than the Lawns are, it was still a little way away- it took 30-40 minutes to walk there, so it was definitely work getting a bus pass for the year to make the journey in 10 minutes. One great thing is that Thwaite has its own library room. While it isn't stocked up with the textbooks for all courses, the library was a great place to do coursework or revise without distractions. It also has a games room, which had two pool tables and a table football set. Overall, its best advantage was how social it was- I got to know a lot of people from Thwaite, while also having enough privacy if I wanted to stay in my room!

It's a beautiful old fashioned halls but social side is pretty poor. Needs updating in the rooms and I had to live next to a boiler for the whole year.
