Read New Hall Reviews
Staff are useless and rude. Smoking in buildings and they don’t respond. Bathroom flooded a few times and has not been fixed. So expensive for what you get. Would not recommend. There are much better halls for the same price
Staff very temperamental (sometimes really nice but often angry and rude). Can hear people upstairs, people walking in the corridors, etc. Uncomfortable mattresses. Cleaning staff refused to clean for us after we had a few pans on the side and complained about us to other flats, because she didn’t like us she also kept accusing us of things. Got charged for a mark on the sofa that was there before we moved in. A lot of fights and constant smell of weed.
New hall is pretty modern with reasonable sized rooms and pretty large kitchens. I'm going to try and come up with some things that other reviews don't mention that I have noticed about new hall while living here. What's good: Despite being single beds they are longer length. The desks are pretty big and curve around the corner. Shower room is nice and easy to keep clean. Kitchens are pretty big and have a large table and a corner sofa which we rearranged to 2 sofas facing each other. The Freshers reps get very involved in their flats, they get the whole block together and made pres really fun (even helped us clean the kitchen in the morning). What's not so good: I'm in the closest block to the point (campus bar) and Its pretty loud til late on Thursday nights. The extractor fan in the kitchen is automatic and quite loud. There is no extractor fan in the bathroom. The doors are not soundproof at all, you can easily hear a quiet conversation through them.
This hall was literally 5 minutes away from most of my lecturers meaning I could leave last minute. All rooms include their own shower and toilet, and the only facility shared is the kitchen. The cleaners are very friendly and try to set up different competitions and other events to support students working together.
New Hall was a great experience. Shame there was not a place where you could get together with other flats, such as a common room. It was nice to have communal areas within the flats to be with housemates. WiFi was shocking would always cut out at vital moments (such as watching the football, oh and revising and doing coursework). Cleaner was lovely and did a fabulous job. The little competitions were great to join in with. The Hall as an overall experience was great.
I got the jackpot with my halls and flat! I love the fact that you got to pick where you wanted to go including the room as I got to think what would be best for me. If there were problems, they were fixed as quickly as possible. I got to live with incredible people not only in the l flat but in the hall block. Apart from the rubbish service and WiFi, living in new hall was the best!
I lived in a studio so it was difficult to make friends within my block but in freshers week I joint in with a different block which helped me make many good friends. The facilities were good but I didn't like paying for washing.
Its on campus so is in an excellent location. The rooms are spacious and modern and there is a large amount of storage available. The communal kitchen has a lot of storage and you will have one shelf in the fridge and the freezer. However, it is quite expensive compared to other options.
New Hall is a lovely place to live. Modern and good sized bedrooms and bathrooms. Personally I got the room knowing I would not have a common room to go to or place to socialise outside of the flat within the accommodation. Just over 5 grand is a lot for what you get. I know there are other accommodation in the city which is better quality and you get a lot more for less, but you have to travel. There are not many washing machines which means you do have to wait but that's not much of an issue. Freshers week you are introduced to everyone within your block and each flat has their own hosting of pre-drinks. You get to meet everyone and the freshers reps are very friendly and also making new friends with everyone. Socially you are able to make very good friends with people in your flat (if you are lucky). Internet can be slow at times but the good old switch on and off again you are right back with it. The upgrading of the wifi has helped a lot in recent months.
It is really spacious and fun place to live with easy access to town and the campus (duh it is on campus). It has nice kitchens and you always feel safe with security and the fob system to enter the buildings. Lovely new accommodation i really enjoy living in.
There is a lack of social spaces except for the shared kitchen/living room area which can be a bit cramped. The management team can be slow to respond to complaints -we complained about wasps 4 months ago and nothing has changed.
