It would be five stars in value for money but I'm catered and most of the food is average/ below average and there is only one veggie option. It's the most social of the halls (which is the best) and although it isn't the newest/cleanest of places, it means that you can make a bit of a mess of if you break something no one is that fussed. The only really bad point I'd say is that important is that there is no social area so people are forced to sit on the stairs or all squeeze into the kitchen to chat and socialise. Also in the catered blocks there are no ovens only microwaves and fridges.

The wifi disconnects at times but I think that's because there are so many people using it at the same time. All of the halls in oadby are very close to each other so even if you live in an isolated area it's very easy to see friends in different halls

I loved living in Block 8 Beaumont hall. It was really sociable and because it's catered you get to meet even more people in the catering hall. I wish I could live there again and redo my first year.

Staying in Digby Halls, was a good experience at the start i loved it! couldnt fault anything with it, however as the year got on and more drugs got involved and more house parties during exam periods management didnt do a very good job in controlling the situation. AS the accomodation as a whole i loved it! my room was ideal and a good size.

Beaumont hall is in blocks of 22 people (and that is the smallest one). Its basically like a big house unlike small flats in John Foster you are bound to find someone you get on with if not everyone. The atmosphere is fantastic (lots of parties in some blocks and other blocks are quieter) and although catered you have your own small kitchen upstairs and downstairs. Would definitely pick if you want a social living experience

Absolutely love living in block 8 although there's no three network signal and the wifi is poor at best. However the rooms are fairly nice and maintenance problems tend to get sorted out soon enough. Only bad bit is the kitchen!

Over the moon with this accommodation, we've got a pretty big block of 43 people and honestly it's amazing. I know everyone in the block and am friends with them all as well. Only a month and a bit in and we already feel like a family, the layout is great and even though we don't have a social area we make do and socialise on the stairs

The maintenance and the cleaning in the halls (I'm in the old blocks 1 to 5) is fantastic, and really friendly. Furthermore, everybody's speak to people (I mean, you'll always get that one person who never leaves their room) and there's a great sense of community. Location? Out of the way, considering we're in Oadby, but a nice location nonetheless. Common room is just a landing with two tiny leather sofas that can barely fit two people. Internet? Pretty dismal. It's slow at the best of times, and is immensely unreliable in the block common rooms.

So nice, four flats of five with nice social area in each flat only issue is that theres no social space and because digby halls is put with Beaumont so digby is put to the back of thought. Also buses can sometimes be annoying because it gets full at john foster but you can still get on most of the time or get the main buses as its a fivd minute walk. I loved it, everything is new and looks clean compared to other halls I've seen which just look old. Nice little digby community because all the blocks face each other :)

Nice, safe location near big ASDA and other shops. Not that near uni but fine with bus pass. My room was a bit horrible at first, mould on walls, stains all over curtains and so on. We had no common room in our Beaumont block which I think would have improved our halls a lot. Internet access was generally good throughout the year. The block could get a bit gross at times due to the amount of people we had living there, with only two shared kitchens.

Waste of money, too far away from the city in a mundane setting surrounded by over excited teenagers thinking they're adults now they've moved out of mummy and daddies house. Moved out after 4 months to a privately rented accommodation and found it much better, cheaper, and with a definite better location. Don't bother with halls, you'll meet people at uni socialising normally, you don't have to find them by being pushed into houses with them as 80% are a**eholes. Oadby is moribund, the housing assistants are clowns and their ideas of 'fun' or 'entertainment' are just jokes.

It would be five stars in value for money but I'm catered and most of the food is average/ below average and there is only one veggie option. It's the most social of the halls (which is the best) and although it isn't the newest/cleanest of places, it means that you can make a bit of a mess of if you break something no one is that fussed. The only really bad point I'd say is that important is that there is no social area so people are forced to sit on the stairs or all squeeze into the kitchen to chat and socialise. Also in the catered blocks there are no ovens only microwaves and fridges.

I lived in the Beaumont section of Beaumont and digby in the 'new court' so I can't speak for digby or the old court section. The buildings are horrid, the carpet is like Velcro and I was always getting bitten when I sat on it. The bathrooms are communal with one bathroom at either end of the corridor with cubicles in it. In the rooms the paint is peeling off the walls on the positive however the windows are big and the desk space ample. The kitchen is the worst part of the whole place, while it is catered accommodation people obviously want to eat at lunch and if they miss meals. The kitchens at Beumont are completely inadequate with one tiny kitchen between an entire floor of people in some buildings this was 30+ people. In the kitchen there was a sink 2 half size fridges and a microwave. Finally there was no communal space in the new court buildings. Overall it wasn't worth the thousands of pounds spent.

I'm living in Beaumont and it's amazing, if you want the best social life it's where you should stay! The facilities are pretty poor, I'm in the biggest block of Beaumont with 36 people on each floor sharing 1 small kitchen which has 2 fridges a microwave and 2 kettles and then there is 6 toilets and 6 showers with 4 baths, the rooms are well equipped with desk and chair bed, wardrobe bed side table and another chair. There aren't really social areas so most of our pre drinks are on the landing of the stairs or in people's rooms. Which at first seems awful but it's still good. Cleaners visit twice a week and there lovely, clean up all the rubbish left from nights out along with hoovering corridors and cleaning the bathroom and kitchen. There's a large green space outside the block which is great in the summer. Security is good with security cars driving round every now and again. Although living in such a large block may seem daunting there's very little chance you won't make 1 friend!

Hi So I have enjoyed being part of Beaumont. It is nice to go for dinner with everyone and the dining hall is really nice. Also there is a nice communal greenary for the blocks to mix on. However, I was in Block 8 and there are no communal spaces so it can be quite antisocial at times. Especially as there are so many of us, it is hard to get to know everyone.

I live in Beaumont and I'd say that it may not be the nicest looking from the inside but it's cheaper than the others, you've got more grass space to go outside and chill when its sunny. Theres a bus straight to uni just outside and from what I understand and have heard from all my friends even from other accommodation Beaumont and Mary Gee have the best social lives.
