The hall is horrendously overpriced for the quality of the accommodation. The kitchen was disgusting with snails in the windows and mice from the day we moved in and the rooms were tiny compared to other, lower priced halls. In my flat at least all but one of the other rooms were occupied by apparently non-existent people who seemed to never leave there rooms. I eventually ended up having to go on nights out with people either from different flats or from only my course. The only positive aspect of this hall is its location where both city centre and uni were nearby.

don't understand the bad reputation weston hall has. the location is amazing, sure it's overpriced for the quality but uni/arndale/gym/good clubs and other amenities are super close by. flat cleaner is reliable and our bins are taken out every morning, rooms are about average size and mattresses are v cosy. red core is modern n refurbished w induction hobs etc. and new common room layout. there's 24-hour security done by actual professionals, reception is lovely and the halls are very clean. a big downside is that there's no wifi but the intranet is very speedy. you /can/ meet people who are up for the sesh too, my friend transferred here also so she could be with her friends (us). overall good quality for first years esp if you're doing an engineering subject since everything is on your doorstep. justice4weston lol

As someone who has previously been to university and experienced halls of varying quality prior to my stay at Weston, I must say that the reviews are disproportionately harsh. The accomodation has security (cameras and actual security on the premises), 24-hour residents who are actual staff (not 2nd or 3rd year students like many unis get to do the job on the cheap instead), working facilities (lifts, appliances, Internet (although there is no wifi)), halls are always clean and orderly (trash is taken out daily from the communal bins in the flats (no trash lying in corridors, again like many other accomodations)), en-suites, decent location (although you will spend much time walking around to get to shops, there are two bus stands adjacent to the building for the 147 which is free for students), vending machines inside the building, spacious social areas for each flat, large kitchens, etc. I don't know anybody at UoM who isn't envious of my accommodation and theirs are rated higher.

To put it nicely - absolutely horrendous! First off the rooms are small, old and just downright shit. There is no wifi AT ALL in the whole halls. I mean, come on! It's 20-fucking-17, surely by know this is some form of human right removal! The only connection is some very strict, very shit, heavily monitored internet that is always down! The location is alright, but can still be a bit of a walk to the university, but it's an ideal location for the city centre. Maintainence is alright - to some extent - in that once the problems are addressed they are fixed rather quickly. Social life is next to none, the halls are very quiet and nobody likes a sesh. Literally 9/10 people in the halls are foreign students - Chinese to be precise - so unless you're fluent in Mandarin, I wouldn't bother. Within a month of staying there my room got flooded due to a pipe burst and although it was half-heartedly cleaned in that some bloke hoovered it for 5/10 mins, I got NO compensation whatsoever!

The location is basically perfect. Close to most parts of the uni (especially the engineering buildings) and really close to all areas of the city centre. The rooms are a bit small, but they are perfect for first years!

I love my flat, personally, however each flat seems to be very different (as in some are much better than others), ours is great, but then other people are paying the same money as us and have a rubbish common room/ kitchen.

no wifi is absolutely shocking. Many international students therefore the social scene is a bit (very) boring. Location is the only good thing about it.

Highly international, disappointed this wasn't expressed on line as they tended to stick together and make it less social. I'm a first year and put in a flat of 8 with only 2 other first years and being the only UK person in my flat doesn't help me socially to make friends as third year students are gone a year later and already have their friends therefore not very sociable disappointed in the lack of common sense of this matter

Fine if you don't want to go out much but definalty go to fallowfield for a more social experience. Very quiet halls and old, outdated rooms also no wifi! Great location next to factory and fifth though..

A great city centre location with generally really nice residents. Whilst it's not in amongst the busy buzz of Fallowfield or Victoria Campus it's ideally situated right next to a good mix of bars and clubs; factory, fifth and Joshua Brooke's are literally on the doorstep. Most residents are international but the social side of living here is good. Overall, not a bad hall to be living in for first year despite the reasonably high cost.

The common room is so defunct of facilities that no one really goes there. However we are very close to the city and the train stations and in walking distance to the uni. We are also very close the clubs. However this halls is where many of the international students are so it is rather a pick and mix of how good your flat relationship is.

Students should go for private student Accomodation instead. It's cheaper and so much nicer.

Don't even bother unless you like sitting in your room and living with international students who don't clean up after themselves

International and Erasmus students mainly fill the halls. This affected the social experience massively
