Despite the location, I actually really enjoyed living at Paul Kent. As there are less people living in the halls you generally get to know everyone on site through trips on the U5 to uni and also fairly close to both Crescent and Slade. I cannot fault the staff who regularly organise events and free pizza nights, which doesn't happen at other halls and also really friendly. I know most people are disappointed by the location but everyone seems to get used to it. Its defiantly not the end of the world if you get put in Paul Kent

Fairly quiet- we don't have many party flats, and if we do it's just during popular nights out. Room size is decent and the fact that we have en-suite bathrooms is a huge plus- although the bathrooms are literally a wooden container mounted inside the room, looking just like airplane bathrooms. The lighting is quite poor- windows are small and they never fully open. Hall management... The hall manager is a very annoying lady, although the wardens are usually really helpful- I remember that one time I basically sliced half of my finger and the duty warden bandaged my wound. We only have a common room- really good when you are in desperate need for a Snickers or a Coke. Otherwise, it's quiet and almost no one goes in there- it looks like any other regular living room.

The hall wardens and staff are more concerned with the reputation of the halls and have a serious attitude problem - other than that the actual place is quite alright.

Issues take a while to be cleared up, when issues raised usually get an unkind response from the manager, buses aren't always reliable from the location, wifi can be rubbish, had issues with showers and water and the fridge. Maybe not enough space for 9 people.

Not much of a party place, have to be silent by 11pm due to being surrounded by houses with children.

Paul kent hall is a really lovely place to live, I have a non ensuite room and therefore it is cheaper to live and you get a bigger room. You are fairly away from shops but that's not really an issue for anyone and we love living here

Paul Kent is a small accommodation halls in comparison to others like Clive Booth but it is a beautiful setting. The hall staff and wardans and amazing people, extremely friendly and happy to help with anything. Room sizes to vary but are overall a good size with a decent size kitchen in all flats. The one major down side is university buses are few and far between and can often be late, so when staying at Paul Kent it is best to plan for an earlier bus. My experience at Paul Kent halls has overall been an amazing time.
