Very nice modern building, views and very quiet. Its also worth the money, as the kitchen and communal spaces are really big, and the rooms and ensuite are a good size . But it's definitely a trek from here to main campus (headington). Another con is that the signal and wifi is absolutely crap, the wifi either cuts off randomly or is very slow. The signal is horrible as your calls are always glitching or lagging , and your phone is always and only going to be at one bar due to the signal. It literally feels like you're in the middle of nowhere. Honestly the accommodation itself is warm and a good place to socialise, but the wifi and signal just ruins it for me.
Actual room is great. Got a studio flat, can't complain. Washer's are horrific. Takes stupidly long to get anywhere by bus since very out of the way. Can't comment on the cleaning since they only clean communal spaces which is something I don't have.
Lovely accommodation, very modern. Plenty of space and storage. Large kitchen as well as living space. Lack of fridge/freezer space. Hall management take a few days to respond to minor maintenance issues such as lightbulb replacement
The location is rubbish. As I lived in a flat with only two other people who were very antisocial I felt as though I was in a prison rather than in halls of residence. You have to get a bus absolutely everywhere. It would take half an hour just to walk up/down to the closest shops and as Westminster hall is up a massive hill, it is impractical to do so. However it is very quiet which may please older students or those who are less interested in socialising. The student union is always empty, there are never any events going on in there and if there are, none of us know about it. The WiFi connection was often quite poor and would drop out, which caused problems towards the deadline weeks. The cleaning service was quite good, although cleaners would often come and it would seem not much had been done. Also they would put any dirty washing up in the sink, on top of clean washing up on the drying racks. If you are looking for somewhere quiet and secluded then this is a good place
I have always felt safe and secure, the kitchen and social space is phenomenal considering that it is catering for six people. All the rooms have their own en-suites, which if there is any problem, is generally fixed quite quickly. Overall I have enjoyed my experience in halls!
By the time i graduate i will have lived here for 3 years! Great hall to live in, nothing wrong with it whatsoever, well connected to city centre for nights out or shopping, great atmosphere on campus and perfect if you love the gym as its a minute walk. Lovely social spaces and kitchen areas in flats, bedrooms and well designed and perfect for every student. Staff are friendly and prompt to respond to any issues or queries you may have. Wouldn't choose anywhere else to live in Oxford.
Not a great location unless your lectures are on Harcourt Hill! As a primary ed student all my lectures were 5 minutes from bed but pretty much anything else you have at least a 20min bus ride for!! The rooms are lovely and the en suite is perfect! The social rooms have TVs, table tennis and pool which is really great!! The kitchens are nice but could possibly do with more fridge/freezer space. Taxi back from a night out costs quite a bit but there are night buses for the main nights out. Beautiful location though, with multiple different walks through fields just behind and the sports centre and gym on site! Shops at the bottom of the hill and close to Aldi as well, except no shops actually on site!
