Love living in these halls!! So warm and cleaned weekly for a bit of support! The halls have a welcoming environment and areas to suit all kind of person ie- tv areas, ping pong areas, or areas just to sit with mates

Staff unfriendly and have lost packages and come into your room with no warning for “maintenance”. Seemingly nothing done about mixed flat parties during COVID despite fining individuals in the same bubble for entering each other’s rooms. Easy to forget you’re a customer. Rooms are fine however and convenient bus stop and gym onsite. There’s a student bar but hasn’t been open for the 2 years I’ve been here. Won’t be returning again due to the staff.

I’m in a studio flat so I can’t comment on the cleaning as that’s something I don’t have. I don’t believe these halls are very good value for money. It is in the middle of nowhere and takes 40 mins to get to the Headington Campus by the U1 bus and my partner says it sometimes takes him over an hour to get to Wheatley. The WiFi is quite bad at times and sometimes disconnects me whenever I just leave my phone for a minute, whereas the signal is nonexistent inside the halls so you’d need to go outside to make calls and send text messages - that’s annoying especially during the colder and windy days. We moved here fully knowing the distance to Headington and Wheatley campuses, but moved here to be able to live together as a couple where other halls wouldn’t let us. We can’t wait until our contract ends in June so that we can rent our own place closer to our campuses.

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

Some people would prefer a busier campus but I love it up here. Never get woken up by people being noisy, all my friends are nearby, we're all quite close as a block, it's lovely.

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!
