Possibly the worst-run student accommodation facility in England. The staff are incredibly bad at communication and are very inconsistent. The rooms and kitchen are standard yet considerably overpriced. However, the halls are very close to Northwick Park tube station and the Wifi speed is very good. I would not recommend.
From my year here, seriously The worst halls ever, the bathrooms are horrible like a wet room they always smell, had my macbook stolen from the kitchen, staff are useless, wifi always goes off, the hot water always turns off, the sink gets blocked, the value for money is cheap but definitely not worth any of the cost, better off staying at victoria halls or raffles, please stay away from here the most useless accomodation ever.
Decent location. About 15-20 minute walk from a Sainsbury's or Tesco. 25ish minute journey into the centre of London on one line, so that's good. Internet was okay, but would sometimes go out, leaving you no way to upload assignments. Hot water would go off too much, leaving you unable to shower. Everybody I met was kind and sociable. You can drink in the kitchens together, but music needs to be off (or quiet) by 11, otherwise the security will come. Only four bar stools per flat, even though there's six people in a flat, and you can't bring in extra seating. No real area for socialising in the flat, apart from one common room between the entire accommodation, which was okay. Cleaners come into kitchen and do a good job! Value for money rated low as when you pay £162 a week, you don't expect to lose internet, or have a tiny room or even lose hot water for hours on end. And that 11am Friday fire alarm, god... Good people there, but pretty pricey. But what do you expect in London? :)
I had an amazing year living in halls, but I think that is due to the amazing people I lived with. The rooms are tight, but comfortable, and you have the luxury of your own ensure bathroom (however it's tiny and often has mold). The kitchen is a good space, but there is no comfortable seating if you all want to hang out. Cons: fire alarm EVERY Friday at 11am, good morning! Security and cleaning can be very picky! It's tough to keep everything perfectly clean as a student living with 5 others. Not everyone has the time to do their dishes every night. If the kitchens are too messy cleaners are allowed to leave notes, and after a certain number money comes out of your deposit. (Fyi cleaners themselves benefit from this because they are compensated for 'dealing with your mess'). It's a great location considering you only need 5min to et to your lecture if you study at the harrow campus. But it is 20min by tube into London. Despite the cons I had a good time, but be prepared.
(Standard) - the rooms themselves are quite small in comparison to other uni halls I've seen but have the lovely addition of an ensuite shower room These halls aren't too bad they certainly could be worse. 24 hour security - and patrols through the night 24 hour reception Decent sized shared kitchen
