Accommodation is decent but I'd say way too expensive for what you get, so take it as a tax for living on campus but if you have DSA, you're eligible for a discount if they see you have a reason. The room and bathroom is a decent size and you get a pretty big desk, along with having a 3/4 size bed. Internet is good but there's no ethernet in the rooms and the desks are bolted to the wall with no where for cable management if you have a desktop. Rooms are cleaned every 2 weeks but only the bathroom.
Clean and modern. Rooms are relatively spacious. Generally, very good. A very pleasant (and short) walk into the heart of the campus. The only caveat is that there’s no bar within these halls, and so, if you fancy a pint, you need to walk to either the Sneyd arms (just up the road), or to lindsay cafe bar (again, a 5 minute walk).
Loves living here, not the most modern but is a nice size room with a huge bathroom, the kitchen is not cramped and there’s places for everyone to hang out
I have not enjoyed living in these halls. It's very loud at night and the facts that the walls and doors are paper thin, and that the noise carries through the vents don't help. The rooms are incredibly overpriced and the social spaces are quite bad (although The Cross is alright). The showers get incredibly annoying, as you need to push the shower head into place each time you turn it on and as it has a "non-touch" system, it turns off every time I wash my hair and accidentally go too close to the sensor - it also turns off by itself randomly and lowers the water temperature. Good sized beds. Halls smell strongly of dust because of old carpet-flooring. I haven't unfortunately enjoyed the company of my annoyingly messy, loud and thoughtless flatmates either, but that's just me. Wifi works very well and the location is nice, as it's not too far nor too close to the central campus.
I had a horrible time living here, the people were very hostile and you felt completely trapped, and the rooms felt like hotel rooms. Despite being en-suite, it was very noisy and the halls and rooms were very dark which was depressing. I would recommend Hawthornes as it is cheaper, and even though you have to share with more people, it feels like more of a homely environment, and not a massive block of flats, but individual blocks.
Very outdated halls of residence. Needs major updates.
Lovely Halls but personally didn't have a good experience with the people I was with. Would be great if the university out you together with people on your course
Holly Cross is the best accommodation on campus! I love how it is one block so it makes it very easy to meet new people!
The overall halls were brilliant, very clean and for accomodation you are given alot of space. The cleaners did a good job, however the management of the halls were shocking.The management were never there, arrogant and patronising when they were plus always tried to avoid doing anything.
Could have done with a bar but good location and nice rooms
find it ridicules that we have to move out over Easter with nowhere to put our stuff and then if we leave anything we get fined.. its stupid.
It's great having an ensuing bathroom, but we have no bar :/
Had an amazing time living in these halls so far. The kitchen's are a great size and a good place to chill with your flatmates. It's close to the centre of campus just a 5 minute walk from most places!
