Everyone is jealous if you say you're from Henry Price for a good reason! Being right on campus means you can get up at 8:45 for a 9am, you're close to town, Headingley and Hyde Park. Maintainance has been fine! Things will break over time if they're constantly in use eg. The main light in my room died but it was fixed in a reasonable time and it' not broken since! Reception is only open a few hours a day but you can always pick up your post the next day! The staff are very friendly and good about things eg. If you lock yourself out etc Rooms are a good size. The storage is great! You get two big draws (by big I mean I fit in them) under the bed and room for another, a bedside cabinet, a big wardrobe, space above the wardrobe, draws and shelves by your desk. You are practically en suite but because its technically shared, it gets cleaned occasionally! Kitchen is sick for pres, group study when the libraries are full and just hanging out. As you don't need transport it's great value!
I can't rate this hall highly enough! Sure, it's a bit old, the reception is only open 4 hours a day and you have to share one sink and a kitchen with about 9 people. I've had issues with heaters twice now, but reception happily hand you a temp heater and fix it within 3 days. At the end of the day, this is uni accommodation, so it's never going to be perfect. The location is amazing and trust me, location is one of the most important things - I started the year at Lib Dock and the unreliable busses made it really inconvenient for me to join any socs, or meet up with friends in Headingley. Additionally, the hall is really good value for money to begin with, but being on campus itself means you don't have to spend much on transport. I think that having 9 people in your flat is perfect, because the chances are you'll get on with at least one of them. There's lots of storage space, big wardrobes, and sharing with only one other person is basically an ensuite.
If you want a reception that only opens for 4 hours for a day and only 5 days for a week, this is the right hall for you. They also have terrible terrible maintenance service. My shower hasn't been working properly 2 months now. I've reported this issue properly for several times throughout these two months. 2 maintenance guys came on different occasions to fix the shower many days after I had reported the problem. The shower is still yet to be fixed till now. The Henry Price Reception is even worse. Did I already mention that it opens for 4 hours a day and only 5 days a week??????? Many of my parcels were sent back to the local delivery office because of their inflexible working hours. In case of emergency, I guess you really have to be dying in order for them to get off their bottoms and attend to you. Terrible hall service but good location, very close to Uni. The negatives definitely outweighs the positives.
