Richmond Park is one of the more expensive accommodation choices at the Fallowfield campus, but you get your own en suite and a spacious kitchen and a decent room so it's pretty good value for money. The rooms aren't huge but are a good size and come with a huge desk, chest of draws, wardrobe and shelving - pretty standard for a uni room but way nicer than the prison blocks of OP and oak house. In terms of location Richmond Park is in the busy student area of The Owens Park campus where there is Squirrels bar on campus and theres always loads going on in fallowfield and a huge Sainsburys, a Wetherspoon, Revs, Nando's etc- it's a very sociable area great for students. Richmond Park is pretty good socially but not quite as rowdy as Owens park or Oak house, so if you're looking for a sociable hall but also somewhere where you can have a bit of quiet and work occasionally RP is a solid option.
Although quite expensive, the rooms in Richmond park are a good size and the ensuites are pretty good too so all in all is worth it. The kitchens are great - 2 fridges and loads of shelves with 2 ovens and 8 hob spaces, they also have a large table for socialising which is perfect. The location is great - in fallowfield campus so there is plenty going on socialising wise, close to OP, oak house/ squirrels bar and all the rest, but also chilled enough to be able to get to sleep most of the time so it has a really good balance. Its about a 5 minute walk to the bus stop which takes you to the Uni which is ideal, and has nice courtyards if you're into the scenic stuff. Its self catered but a huge sainsburys about 5 minute walk away as well as tesco metro etc which is super convenient as well as a dominos and kebab king!!Cleaners come about twice a week to clean the kitchen and corridors which is nice. Overall great halls, social but can also sleep and in great location would def recommend
Large and roomy kitchen which is ideal for socialising, however the fridge's are slightly too small for 8 people. The table is nice and big however it would be nice if there were some sort of cushiony chairs or sofa to chill on as a social space. The location is great because it's really social and near to the other halls in Fallowfield but is also a bit separate so that you can do work or just chill out when you feel like it. Wifi is really fast, but better with ethernet cable so you don't have to log in every time.
