Coming to Woolton wasn't my first choice however I'm so glad I got it! I've met the most amazing friends, unlike most halls the floors aren't shut off so you meet people from all 3 floors, and also your floor own 15 really well I also made friends with many people from different blocks it has a real community feel. I love a party and coming to Woolton didn't stop that at all, the food has good portions and actually I was pleasantly surprised, great way to meet people and theres always 4 options and sides so plenty of choice. I deffo recommend. My floor has 4 toilets 4 showers and there was rarely even anyone else in there at same time as me.
I have stayed in Woolton Hall in my first year of uni and it has been one of the best halls I could have stayed. The rooms are huge (perfect to do pres or hangouts), the bathrooms are really tidy and big and the fact that it is a catered hall makes it way easier to meet new people. However, it is not a noisy hall, so you get the best of both worlds. Compared to other halls the social scheme is just superior. I made friends really easily both in my flat and from other buildings too. The jcr is pretty active and we did different kinds of parties during the year in a big common area, that also has a pool table and you can play table tennis there too. The only downside of Woolton may be the kitchen, since it’s quite small, but it’s really fun to be there with your friends snuggled up in it and complain about it. Also, the schedule of the meals was not ideal and a bit inconvenient sometimes. Overall it was a great experience and I would recommend it to everyone.
Definitely would recommend Woolton if you want a spacious bedroom! Social Aspect is amazing. With formals going on which accommodations don’t usually do getting dressed up for them was so fun. 14 people on one floor hence you’ll definitely make friends. Shared bathroom wasn’t too bad as there was cleaners. The common room is in a different building which can be annoying but there is pool and ping pong. After having dinner people would go in there too chill and have fun. Catered was definitely helpful always looking forward to dinner. And breakfast is early 7 till 9 but definitely worth it to go! My first year uni experience has been the best due to Woolton met the most amazing people!
Being catered is a blessing in first year. The rooms are big and most have an alright view. The flats are of 16 people however I never had to wait to use toilets/showers. The kitchen was tiny but being a catered hall it wasn’t too much of an issue. The main problem is that the only social spaces are in the building next door. This building is also where the bar, dining room and study rooms are. Having everyone eat together and use the same common room was very social and gave a great sense of community. If you weigh up value for money, socialness and room quality, woolton is one of the best in halls in Fallowfield and definitely the best catered halls.
I would not recommend this university to my greatest enemy. As an MS sufferer, female and black individual, I truly could not have asked for a worse university. It is with my deepest regret that I selected this university. For going on two years now I have been used as a slave by over a dozen schools, doing all the marking, all the planning, friendly to everyone and every child just to be told on the very last day that I have failed, or that after teaching 3 lessons, the students have not progressed. Biggest mistake of my life.
I thought it was great for anyone with a busy course as you can enjoy the cooked food after a busy day. I thought the food was hit and miss sometimes, some meals very freezer food like . However you get big portions and a hot pudding often too. Breakfast was always very good with a wide selection. However you must wake up before 9:30 to get breakfast. I found my room size was much bigger than oakhouse and richmond park. My room also had plenty of storage space and my washing would quickly dry on a washing rack so I never spent money on drying clothes. I thought that sharing a bathroom would bother me but there are never usually more than 2 people in the bathoom at the same time and 3 toilets and 3 showers. I never once had to wait for a shower. I wasnt happy that there was no livingroom/common area on my floor/block which made it difficult to socialize which meant we had to party/drink in the hallway. I would also say that the kitchen is VERY small for a floor of 15 fits only 2 max
Honestly some of the best rooms available, really helps to have your own space that isn't a cupboard (like Oak House). Kitchens are smaller than a toilet cubicle but it's fun to moan about them constantly with your flat. Food is hit or miss but not having to think about cooking all the time is refreshing. Cleaners do a great job but do shout a LOT about bins. Able to mix with more people than in a flat situation due to dinner times and formals. Less crazy crowd but sure you'll find people you like (hopefully). Would recommend.
These halls definitely have some of the biggest rooms available! I really didn't want these halls whenever I first arrived, but being catered actually did save me a good amount of money and the food is very nice! The formals are great fun and there's a good mix of people, the bar is also decent to hang out in. Closest halls to Sainsbury's so can't complain!
The food is pretty bad, it sucks having a tutor in every block who just won't leave you alone, they expect 15 people to cook their lunch and weekend meals in a cabin sized kitchen (I'm not joking I've been on many boats with larger kitchens). But it is pretty and has a good location. If you're someone who wants lots of quiet nights in and doesn't mind cleaning up all the time it's a good choice for you.
The only social spaces are in another building, we were told we can't congregate in corridors, so the warden actually suggested that if we wanted to converse with the whole flat we should leave the building or the campus
as it's small there's a great community feel. nice big rooms, although no in-block common room. kitchen's are more like cupboards but it's something to bond over with your flat mates. the bar essentially acts as the common room- people bring their own drinks when the bar's not open. food's okay, not the best but at least you don't have to cook. nice quiet area so you can go out and party and go back to your quiet room. there are also cats and other wildlife in the area.
Wifi is great- really strong and not had any problems at all. The food is really nice and it is so much better to not have to worry about cooking meals. The location is great- near to all the students but in one corner of the main site so that it is less noisy. The halls are so sociable, with lots of events put on throughout the year and opportunities available and there are lots of people per floor, per block and when you go to eat so you have lots of chances to meet people and make friends.
