Social halls always kept clean, rules should be made clear when applying for halls as this may not suit all. In a prime location, staff are supportive and safe and secure. Each room Is decent sized, has a good layout, an en suite and the flat has huge kitchen space. Bit over priced for students even with all the positives but a good place to live in the first year of university.

My stay at the Mary Newman Hall was short-term. However, it was pleasant. The main advantage of staying at this hall is that it's on campus. This means that you can be where you need to be on campus within 5 mins (gym, laundry, library, etc). Even though you're on campus, Drake Circus and Aramada Shopping Centre are within 10 mins walking distance. Rooms are ensuite but the kitchen is shared (this may be a problem depending on how messy your flatmates are but there is a cleaner that comes in once a week). Some floors can be particularly noisy but again it all depends on where you're placed. The RA's were all really helpful and nice!

Although isn't too bad as I am on campus, the location is amazing, near lectures and the SU and the cleaning is regular and always at an excellent quality, there are some issues. The RA's are nice but don't link the flats well. There have been no events to bond the floors together and as we have no common room, nobody meets each other in the building. This makes these halls not very social.

Have enjoyed it as right on campus, however the wifi is useless (they attempt to fix but never really works). I think you should hope your room is high up as the noise from the SU can get pretty annoying.

What social area. Isn't one apart from the flat but the RA's try with social weekends and events for the whole building to attend if they want to. Cleaners do your kitchen once a week and bins everyday. Just clean your own space really. Overall you're paying for the luxury to roll outta bed and be in lectures in less than 2 minutes because other halls are more luxurious I must admit.

Great location, nice and comfortable rooms, great atmosphere and the big flats are great socially. A lot of rules and regulations and quite expensive.

Very expensive for the value it is, although I do have the smallest room and bathroom. Having a communal room or living space would make these halls a lot more social and better value for money

My room could use a lot of TLC as there is a lot of wear and tear including a hole in the curtains! It rather noisy in my block and overall not good value for money. Since i live in the city i would have been better off living at home! The only good thing is, the bed is very comfy and the wifi is reasonable.

good location as it is on the campus, which is close to the city centre and clubs, but no food shop is really close wheras many other halls have one right on their door stop. The kitchen/communal area is very basic and plain + the wet rooms have no shelving or anything so not really worth the money.
