The only place you should be living. Fantastic location, I can be hungover and roll outta bed and still be on time for lectures! Super social great for parties as it is very easy for flats to mix! We are great friends with the cleaners and Michelle in particular is a legend! Ive seen pretty much all the other accommodations most of them have loads of annoying gates to get in which means shit parties, also a lot of the private providers don't have cleaners which means the flats quickly become pretty grotty. Also Hampden doesn't break the bank, I would strongly recommend to first years with lectures on city campus.

Hampden is amazing would highly recommend if you wanna make friends easy or if you value sleep because you really only have to wake up before a lecture 20 mins before because it’s so close to the city campus buildings. Everyone is friendly and it’s really easy to make friends with people in other flats aswell as your own. The rooms aren’t the best as you can see in the pictures but you get used to it quickly and it’s easier to make it feel cosy. They also heat up quicker if you’re cold and turn on the heating. Would definitely recommend this hall because the social side is great and that can change your experience entirely from speaking to other people who have been in halls where it’s not as social :) the cleaning and hall maintenance staff are great too very friendly

Moving into Hampden halls has to be one of the best decisions I’ve made. Without coming to an open evening and relying solely on photos, understandably I was concerned about the size of the rooms and the social spaces at hampden, but honestly it’s what you make it. My room, noted, is smaller compared to all of the other accommodations at NTU but I’ve made mine so cozy, and it’s bigger than what people make it out to be. If your looking for a crazy social life and a movie experience at uni, hampden is defo gonna be the right choice for you. We’re classed as the most sociable accommodation when you speak to other people in different halls, and frequently get the comment “wish I was in hampden”. I’ve been very lucky to move in next to someone who’s now my bestfriend, and to move Into a flat filled with the best people I now know, which is very similar for all the flats at hampden. Best decision of my life and 100% recommend x

Was very hesitant about this halls in the run up to move in, however I was extremely surprised. Although the rooms are small they are not as small or bad as they look, I managed to make mine cosy and they have plenty of storage. The team who manage the halls are brilliant and extremely friendly.; this also goes for the cleaning staff. In terms of social experience it is amazing. No other halls are quite like it, living in Hampden is almost like living in a little neighbourhood. You can knock on anyones door and ask if they're going out or if they need to go to the shop and I can guarantee you will make friends in many of the flats, not just your own - which after speaking to course mates, no one else in another accommodation can say they have friends in other flats in their halls.

the room is a prison and shower is terrible we have had a guy come up twice to fix it... the heating went off in building when it was -2 outside, they told us it can not be fixed till Monday this was Friday night... washing machines have competently broken.. so you have to do your washing in another building... there are 168 rooms and they get out of us £785473.92 and they can only give us three washing machines and three tumble dryers and you still have to pay for them £2-£2.50 for the washing and £1 for the tumble dryer..... feel ripped off... the night staff are good, wifi is brilliant...

Very good for socialising, probably one of the most social halls as its really like living in a block of flats. Management were good, cleaners were very nice. The rooms were tiny as my hands outstretched could reach from one end to the other, but cosy in my opinion. Internet was okay from what I can remember. Location is great, on the doorstep of NTU.

The building creeks and the pipes keep you up at night, the management is disgusting and will do the bare minimum for you

Great location but low security measures and could do with a refurbishment. However, the social side is fabulous!

World's most over priced and grotty halls. Separate flats keep you isolated.
