Most expensive halls at Hope. People complain it's too far away from town but I like it. Can roll out of bed and into lectures. Regular busses. Plenty of restaurants/shops/cafes nearby. There's two staff (usually 3rd years) that live in halls and it's their job make students feel welcome and help. Their usefulness varies depending on who you have. Cleaners clean areas used by everyone, and drop bin bags into flats. All cleaning within the actual flat is the students' responsibility. This varies with success as people have different definitions of what "clean" looks like. If you're clean, you're likely to find it stressful. If you're messy, you'll stress someone else out. The internet works fab but sometimes doesn't like certain devices. My social experience was bad. I have little in common with my flat. Arguments and dramas feels regular. Most my friends live in other halls on Hope Park. Luck of the draw really. It's noisy! I use earplugs. Hope this helps.
Hated living in these halls in my first year. Internet connection was really bad and the social spaces were tiny. The ensuite was tiny you couldn't swing a towel without hitting all the walls.
Internet team are awful, they block safe things and when you ask them about it they make up stupid excuses!
