If you consider yourself as somewhat of a sensitive soul, please do yourself a favorite and pay some extra money for another accommodation. I am an exchange student and first was shook by the accommodation prices in general, so I took the cheapest of course. If someone told me that the £40 i save per week would cost me my sleep, I probably would have chosen differently. I personally can’t agree on the management part, when anything was broken here, or when I wanted to change my room, I always have been helped within one day. But besides that: tiny communal area, people drinking several times a week in almost every flat, no equipment, and I swear I don’t know how I still didn’t develop claustrophobia in these tiny corridors and my prison cell that they call a „room“.
Do yourself a massive favour and put oak house as your first choice. + Good wifi + Thick walls + 1 bathroom per 4 peoole + Social hub of fallowfield + Cheap - Not the prettiest (bring decorations) - Sometimes a tad loud -20 minute bus ride from Main campus, 30 minute from City centre
This accommodation is bangin, it's the cheapest so you have plenty of spare cash to fund the sesh, Tower lot will chat s*** about how it's better up there but when you're stuck on the 13th floor with no lift how you gonna get down? That's what I thought b****. Oak House has max one flight of stairs, not that far to walk up and little damage when you stack it down them. Oak House you have to live and die by the sesh. Got a 9am tomorrow? Have an early night then. But if you're awoken by a knock on the window at 4am get on out there and kick on through.
Avoid it's unclean, badly managed and not secure as advertised. Robberies occur and staff do not deal with the entrances that are unsafe promptly. Poor Internet. No local amenities and 45 minute walk to university sites.
Its very live in oak house, its got the best location, of all, right next to squirrels the pub + everyone goes to oak house because its sick, v nice. Rooms are a bit s*** but nice and cosy. Kitchens are aight. Wanted Richmond Park with the dank en-suites originally and was disappointed with oak house but once you're here you realise richmond is over priced and s*** in comparison
Oak house is good if you wanna be very social but don't believe what other people say about it being too much of a party place there is a time and place. It can get noisy sometimes but for the most part it's okay. There is a quite time enforce during exam times so no worries there. Also it's really what you put into it if you want to be partying all the time and going out you can but at the same you have your space to stay home and chill too. If you are looking for clean and tidy ultra quite place don't come here. If you wanna socialise and bond with flat mates don't mine the noise but like paying cheap rent then this is the place.
One of the most social halls and also one of the cheapest. It's not the most attractive but everyone here loves their first year. It's also not very noisy as everyone always says, so still very easy to concentrate on work.
One of the cheapest halls and is great for the amount you pay! The halls are in flats rather than corridors so it's more difficult to meet other people that live near you, however it is possible. The flats are nice enough for what you're paying and are a good size, so would recommend.
Oak House is the daddy of fallowfield's social life- perfect 1st year experience. Close to Squirrel's Bar, it is the biggest halls in Fallowfield. There's always something happening. Great people. Spontaneous events. Rooms are actually bigger than what you think. Very cosy. The place to be for social activities but don't get me wrong- you can still study well here. Wherever you stay, doing well on your course is down to you not the halls of residence.
I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone unless they have absolutely no money. For £92 a week you are getting a roof over your head and basic utilities. Laundry services cost extra and there is nothing provided in the kitchens. Common areas are small, making it hard to socialise, and the rooms look like prison cells. I've stayed in a hall with bad rooms before, but the management put a lot of effort into making our stay enjoyable. At oak house, the management are unfriendly, rude, and condescending - a big shock as an exchange student far away from home . Essentially all you are getting from this hall is an opportunity to socialise, and nothing more.
If you want an amazing social experience then look no further. Expensive at 90 quid a week but it is the cheapest the university has to offer. Devastated when I got it initially, now would not go anywhere else. The rooms are small, it looks like a prison and you have to share a bathroom but it has got that special something.
