How do you rate St Gabriel's Hall?

Most helpful review

Their rooms are tiny if you live in a flat, with the exception of large en-suite bedrooms. The floor is creaky and the doors are heavy and way too loud. I personally think that there is a need of refurbishment. And for what you pay for, hall food isn't really the best option if you could cook your own meals. It's really close to supermarkets and shops like Tesco, Morrisons, Lidl, and Superdrug. The curry mile, where you can have lots of Indian food, is also a stone's throw away. It's a bit far from the north campus though. (Beware, engineering students!)

Student Review: 2 /5

I had an awful experience here. If you are a first-year student, I'd strongly advise you not to live here. The hall fosters a hostile and unwelcoming environment, and the residents were judgmental of anyone new who moved in. On my first day I was asked straight away if I drank, smoked, took drugs or was going to bring my boyfriend ever?? The freshers week activities were juvenile, and consisted of a catwalk of dresses made of toilet paper, cupcake decorating, and a marshmallow and spaghetti building competition. As a religious hall, you cannot have any male company in the hall without making sure every resident in the corridor knows. On my moving-in day, my dad wasn't even allowed to come upstairs to help me unpack. The experience was so bad I asked to transfer halls at the earliest opportunity, and the warden lost my transfer paperwork. Eventually, I moved to Ashburne which was much better.

This hall might look nice from the outside but trust me, that’s the only nice thing about it. The inside is absolutely tragic. I would guess it’s more than 50 years old and has not been touched ever since !!!! The furniture is absolutely horrific including the fridges, ovens, windows, carpets, and curtains. Everything here seems to be dirty and this whole complex stinks terribly. It is an all girls hall so expect to notify all of your flatmates whenever you will want to have any male guest over. The food is not great, but not that bad either I’d give it like 4/10. Do not expect any miracles for dinner if you want to eat healthy / are a vegetarian or vegan / or if you simply want something good to eat

Too old building, tiny room with risk of leaking from the ceiling. Damaged furniture in rooms, ancient bathrooms. Far too noisy, impossible to sleep. Bad quality food (indigestion). Nobody wants to stay in it as every year first students leave.
