Hugh stewart hall has the best location, most people I know only have to walk a few minutes to lectures, the food court for lunch in the portland building (which is delicious) is only a 3 minute walk, you're surrounded by the other catered halls and their bars (which also serve lunch food) and the Hugh stewart bar for pre drinks is cheap and right at your door step. The only downside to all catered halls is the quality of food at dinner... it's not the best. If you're a fussy eater, you'll find yourself having one too many takeaways. But most people find it manageable. I personally have dominos on speed dial. However, I am happy with my choice. Comparing my own experience to what my friends in self-catered halls have said... it's a lot easier to socialise here in Hugh stu, our JCR (people who organise our events) are so much better, and our campus is a lot nicer than those in self-catered who are much further away. If i had to do it all again, I'd still choose Hu Stu.

Definitely the best hall on campus! Only HughStu and Cripps are so central to everything, the hall library is a wonderful place to work and the staff is so friendly. Only the 'single study plus' rooms are in the old part if you're looking for a more traditional feel.

I stayed at Hugh Stewart halls for 3 weeks during the non-term time. Pros: -friendly staff. -closest proximity (relative to other halls) with Hallward library and Portland building. Cons: -bathrooms were mostly unclean. -a lot of rooms on 1 floor. Might be difficult to befriend others. -tiny kitchen size (people to pantry ratio is bad) which is mostly busy anyway. -no storage facilities. -Rooms didn't have proper locks. For e.g. to lock your door, you needed a key to lock it from inside. -Rooms offer basic facilities only; pipes etc are visible in older rooms. -no common room facility. -found a lot of bugs (had to spray insecticide every second day!) -like other halls, a lot of false fire-alarms which are definitely annoying. Final verdict: Go for a hall like Nightingale hall instead! 10000 times better than this.

Awfully designed hall, full of clique's and nowhere to socialise within blocks. Showers are decent though

Location was fantastic, having the cheapest bar was brilliant for socialising, and I loved having the option of formals every week. The setting was beautiful, especially the cut through to Hallward. Being in blocks was great for meeting people and hanging out, with enough of you in a block to find some people you enjoyed spending time with. Made some great friends.

Absolute banger of a hall apart from the Wifi. All the rooms are nice and a decent size and the people are great.

Staff are friendly and the rooms are clean. Having food cooked for you it great but some days are better than others for choice. I lived there in 13/14 and the common room can really do with a total re vamp and the bar is good but only when it is open. They find small ways to rip you off though, be prepared to pay a lot of money to keep your stuff in your room over any holidays!!
