Great self-contained studio accommodation.
Pendle "getto" where i stayed had no lifts so when friends and family came to visit me they either had to struggle up the stairs or I could not welcome them into what was supposed to be my space. Collage welfare team where lovely but I was too scared to ever really use any of the servises. I guess at least the bar had 1 "gender neutral toilet" but it was upstairs and the down stairs toilets got beautiful refurbishments. although the mens in pendle collage bar only had urinals. What if your trans? nah you don't matter, What if you have IBS nah you don't matter. it felt frustrating to have to pay £36 upon starting uni to be part of a collage when I couldn't attend any of the events that where put on due to my servire anxiety.
High quality accom, safe and secure
Everything is great, the best room design i have seen in UK accommodation.
Loved the accommodation although Pendle Bar is not the best. You're close to everywhere else on campus though!
Perfect room, very clean flat. Has everything I need.
I lived in Pendle for my first year and didn't make full use of all of their facilities, but I wish I did! I can't fault their staff and how clean and homely everything is!
got no sofas or anywhere to sit apart from kitchen stools
Best college in my opinion for making friends and being sociable. JCR and SCR do an amazing job. Everyone is super friendly but it is a little bit out of the way from main campus, around 5-10 min walk but not a huge problem!
Really good college but bar needs to be updated and needs more variety of music in socials e.g RnB, etc
No soft furnishings in most communal spaces but otherwise good.
Rooms and showers were brand new this year, good value. Great views from Kitchen Windows as well. My building was all freshers and vry sociable, pre-drinks in different flats and trips into town to Sugar Lounge. pendle bar sports are good too
Very nice accommodation managers and porters you can pop in and chat with at any time. Rooms are very modern and moderately sized
It was great, the bar was right next door, the cleaners came everyday and one of the cheapest halls on campus
Only positive was the WiFi, long walk from lectures, poor social areas ie. no sofas so you couldn’t really socialise there. Very much an isolated experience
Generally a positive area to live just a bit far out on campus
Pendle has been refurbished right before we got here in October. The room is spacious and our cleaner makes our lives a lot easier by taking care of the kitchen and other common areas
We have ants in our kitchen and we cant play football outside. Rest speaks for itself really
Fun people, good social scene. Rooms good enough.
Great space, well maintained and lovely college atmosphere
Pretty good value for money to be honest
Clean and spacious. Amongst other halls. Variety of people.
Pendle good cheap accommodation but far from the main area of activity, thus bar and social spaces can be quiet. Cleaners very friendly and clean kitchens to a great standard. sporty college and thus teams do very well in competitions.
(Standard accommodation) Shower heads don't come off No social space whatsoever aside from the kitchen. No where to socialise with other people in the building at all. They say there's security but I haven't really seen anyone around?? Too many stairs. It's kept clean and they replace stuff quick if it doesn't work. Location is good. Right next to central. Most lectures and seminars are close.
Loved living in Pendle, you get great standard accommodation in a good social location! Everyone knows each other in Pendle 'ghetto', no regrets!
The people in pendle were amazing, but the accomodation and the cost hiked a lot in the 3 years I was there and yet the service and accomodation never improved.
Great social atmosphere and rooms are value for money
Cheap, centre of many parties and great management by the staff. Cleaners clean everything but your room and are lovely. Close to George Fox lecture theatre and has a shop within close proximity to the college. It's a very social area.
I'm just going to say AVOID AT ANY COSTS. The rooms have all got old furniture, old sinks. Showers have not got detachable head and sometimes there's no hot water. There's no privacy as they have horrible blinds that not cover the whole window instead of curtains like most colleges and no common rooms like other colleges. Location is also rubbish for what you're paying.
Really friendly, relaxed college, built so you run into people all the time.
Pendle both has its advantages and disadvantages. One pro of Pendle was the moving in experience. I found the reps made it very easy to make friends and felt settled in the moment I stepped in the halls. The halls are quite expensive, particularly the superior ensuite, but the quality of the superior ensuite is good. The actual common room/bar area is fairly dated and could do with a refurbishment, but the JCR are very good and put lots of events on, including a live music night every Thursday which is always entertaining.
Internet drops out quite a bit, skype calls are a no go during evening hours.
Not much in the way of social sports in the college unless you like bar 'sports' or football. Enjoyed the music in the bar. But the bar is usually dead and the only people in there are the JCR or people playing pool.
I love everything about my college and the campus. Nice people, nice atmosphere, nice experience.
Great experience, although the social areas were never open. The social atmosphere was great though!
i like both ghetto and pendle, i prefer the people that i live with in ghetto than in posh...
Friendly atmosphere - a real community feel
Best college on campus. Greatest group of friends here. Nice people, social people. What more could you want?
Good value for money and have a nice sized kitchen and rooms, if you get the ground floor the rooms are larger! Only pitfall is that there is no sitting area (such as sofas) which other colleges have.
Now the above rating for location is for the Pendle superior en suite. This is because the Pendle standard and en suite accommodation are separate and in different locations, with standard being next to the actual college and bar while en suite is closer to Lonsdale and Graduate colleges. Overall I thought the college accommodation was great. Nice big rooms and kitchens (But I lived on the top floor in house 27 crowtrees flat 8 and so the stair were killer!). The bar itself was lack luster. Hardly ever open while other colleges bars were open all the time, Even Cartmels was open for christs sake! BUT the common area on top of the bar was always open till midnight and has a few free arcade games and pool tables which is nice. If your looking for quite accommodation but also like to go out to other bars and have fun then Pendle is the place for you, After all. Captain slow went to Pendle ;D
Not so good, I'd rather have chosen another college
Great to meat new people but is a bit out the way for most things
Pendle is situated really well with a maximum of an 8 minute walk to my lectures but it is on the edge of the campus so you don't feel hemmed in.Everyone is so friendly and there is a real community spirit.
made 2 of my best friends from these halls this year
Facilities are excellent and the porters are friendly, it's a great space for your first year at university
Amazing freshers week Activities every week Includes something for everyone
Affectionately called Pendle 'Ghetto' since it doesn't have ensuites - but offers excellent value for money and nice rooms and kitchen. The block set up lets you meet lots of people and the bar has Pendle Live every week which showcases local live music.
Stayed in the most expensive accommodation on campus, was worth it although a little small. The social area for Pendle is not worth it, they really do need to do something about their bar!
It's really good if you don't like cleaning the kitchen!
Nice spacious room, when something breaks the porters will arrive within 1-2 days usually to fix it, worth the money and the kitchen is a good space
Considering the standard of accommodation and its price... If I was a Fresher again, I wouldn't bother with living on campus. You can get far more for less money in the city accommodation, shared house or private halls like City Block or newly opened Damside.
