Again all the things that would have made this hall great were hindered by the pandemic, the social spaces were restricted to 6 people only and at the beginning when no one knew anyone the food hall was 2 a table which was very awkward. Most bedrooms are big enough to fit more than 6 people in them but there were social distance guards(?) around to maintain the 6 person rule, they also tried to make everyone stay within their own household but when everyone's new and has no subject friends the only friends people will have is from the hall and people aren't going to become friends just because they're close together. Also at one point the hall accidentally took a fair chunk of money off my student card, said they would refund me the next week but never did but that's less the hall's fault and more the finance people.
I enjoyed my stay at Willoughby. It's actually about 172 p/w including food. When we're not catered during Christmas and Easter break, it's 111 p/w. Hence, living in private accommodation is far cheaper. The location is great. If you study humanities, even better as their building is 3-4 mins away by foot although there's no guarantee that all your lectures/tutorials will take place there. Regardless, there are free hopper buses that goes around all campuses (the bus stop is in front of the humanities building.) I agree with other reviews regarding cleanliness. There's a pool table and ps4 in JCR, and are all free. The tv room smells funny but great to watch movies together. Social events inc clubbing events and activities such as making jewelry and truffle chocolate are usually free (excluding clubbing) and fun! Hall management are helpful and very reflective on feedback. They'll help you with anything, so just ask! They're not 24/7 hours reception tho. No problems with wifi.
Amazing, Most staff that you come face to face with are lovely and down to earth, especially my floors cleaner Sue, best person ever!! Look out for Sue if you stay here she is a pure legend! Can't really moan, some of the rules seem ridiculous but tbh they're really fair.
It's great, and everyone gets along really well and the staff are lovely. Food is good most of the time (they have their off days e.g. baked potato theme night). Wish we had social spaces on our corridors- only social spaces are on ground floor and not very big- sofas/social spaces per floor would be a massive improvement. Rooms way nicer than expected for money paid- not cramped and has sinks and armchairs provided.
