Popular belief is that these halls are absolutely s***. The truth is that they are very social as the layout is done in the american style of corridors. So either 16 or 24 people per floor with bathrooms inbetween each 8. Of course you can get a s*** block leading to a rubbish experience but this is the same as other halls which are done in flats of around 6. You just need to find people more on your wavelength in another floor/block. I wouldnt live here if you don't have lectures here as getting the bus is a pain. Sharing bathrooms isnt as bad as you may think as they are cleaned every morning. You are also fed breakfast and dinner. The food is good enough for how the small the additional impact on rent is. Rooms are bigger than cheney/clive (which are the main halls) unless you get a room at each end of the block which are the same size as the aforementioned halls. There are 5aside football pitches, 6 tennis courts on site which are freely accessible and a huge field.

Lady Spencer Churchill; the man, the myth, the myth. Finding any life here is always a challenging start for freshers, but once you find the 15 people on campus who leave their rooms at night you can have a good time. Endulge yourself in the residential features such as the abandoned house and empty field, because with no more than 10 fireworks you can rack up complaints in no time. Location is perfect if you're looking for an exciting night life in the Wheatley Cemetery, and you're no more than a quick 30 minute bus away from civilisation. Would recommend to a friend as a joke, not as a hall.

Overpriced accommodation that falls apart constantly. £154 a week is absolutely ridiculous for halls that I didn't even choose. Thanks Twerton for your poor cleaning services and high prices.

Horrific, these halls made me feel so depressed. There were holes in the walls, the locks didn't work, the showers were ridiculously small and mouldy and there was next to no security. They should be knocked down asap!
