I was kicked out during the Covid19 pandemic because I filled out an online survey in SurveyMonkey asking me if I was staying there at the moment. I had gone home because of the pandemic for a few weeks, and when I returned they kicked me out. Apparently the online survey was a completely binding legal document (????) worth more than the contract. Fortunately I did get some of my money back. I would not recommend it, The staff is only there to kick people out, they do that immediately, but if you need a light bulb changed in your room, it could take 3 months to do so.
Unfortunately, the location is the only positive thing about this hall. The noise pollution is horrendous. You can hear everything your neighbors are doing - full conversations, morning alarms, showers and toilets, absolutely everything. In addition to this, the building seems to always be doing some sort of construction project which makes the building extremely loud and often requires entrance to your kitchens and your PERSONAL bedrooms. Cleaning staff, which you pay a premium for, do not clean regularly or well. When I moved in, my room was not cleaned and when they "cleaned" it the next day, there were still someone elses hairs all over the shower floor. Front desk staff are incompetent and cannot assist with any problem. The entire building of 300 residents were unable to use laundry facilities for a week and the front desk staff did not know what to do. For what you pay, the location does not justify the cost. Live somewhere else. You'll thank me later.
The only thing George Kenyon hall has going for it is its location which is close to the library and central campus in general. There is a culture of perennial buck passing in this hall. I'm coming to the close of my masters degree and the support is abysmal. We have been left with no way of washing our clothes (apart from outside means) due to renovations which lasted for around two weeks. Generally, communication is poor. Notices are left up when something goes wrong or student life is impacted, but typically with no explanation that allows sufficient interrogation. For example, for the past two months here I have been woken up at 6-7AM to the sound of drilling due to extensive works outside the hall. Notices read "Thank you for your anticipation of understanding" and when I inquired why wasn't there sufficient notice reception advised that I contact the council, which is odd because it is university related works. GKH doesn't really care about its students,
