Read Canterbury House Reviews
Overall my experience living in Canterbury House was a positive one. The accommodation is clean and modern. There are good security measures in place which made me feel safe during my stay and I had no problems with the facilities (the wifi rarely went down and we never had any issues with broken appliances). Canterbury house is a fairly quiet halls, making it good for those who may not want to be in a louder, more lively accommodation. The only issues I found were that maintenance issues, such as the front gate and block doors being permanently unlocked/broken, took a long time to be addressed and occurred multiple times throughout the year.
Great size bedrooms with en-suite and shared kitchen. the cleaners are very good and i have had no problems with them during my stay. the internet was off on cation though most of these were due to maintenance and we were informed before it occurred. Access to campus and town s really easy U5 stop right outside the gates. Due to being close to the road and lots of people living here, it can get very loud at times, especially at night. The place itself can get incredibly warm in the summer and can be very difficult to stay in; as well as the water in the apartments are very warm even using the cold tap, these two issues have yet to be completely resolved. The staff are very helpful and do try their best to sort out issues, with most issues being delt with straight away. Communication with the staff is also very good and reply often on the same day. Overall, this is a very good accommodation that for later years is best for cost.
Brand new modern hall opened in Sept 2017. Great size bedrooms and kitchens, I stayed in the house and kitchen space was generous. Internet went down a few times but not too much of an issue. Great location on the Cowley Road with a bus stop right outside. 20 minute walk to Gypsy Lane Campus. Can be a little noisy at night times as smoking area is on the forecourt, wardens and hall staff really helpful and friendly. Laundry room only has 2 washing machines and 2 tumble driers. Really good value for money considering its location and the fact its new. Cleaners really good. Only negative I had a bike stolen whilst I lived here but that isn't so much a hall issue I guess as an Oxford issue! 5/5!
