Social Experience - If you were making noise it wasn't allowed, security would be there in seconds to tell people to get out of corridors and to be quiet... Even in Freshers when everyone was getting to know eachother we weren't allowed to socialise out of our rooms. Wifi - Cuts out a lot and not the best coverage around the building Some members of the team are rude and look down on students but then there are fantastic staff members in the dining room to make up for receptions fall down.

I cannot put into words how rude the staff are to the students. You'd think if you're working at a uni halls you'd have some nous about what uni life is like. I genuinely think the staff hate the students. The security guards make complaints at the drop of a hat, social areas are closed for no valid reasons and not one day ago we were accused of grassing up a fellow group of students for nos by the management team in some weird attempt to split up the groups. They have a vendetta against any fun being had by students. If you plan on being anything other than a vegetable when you come here then don't come in the first place; you'll experience a year of mistreatment from a bunch of beige mugs who really shouldn't be running the gaff. They do room inspections for christ sake. What are we five? Do not come here, go have fun somewhere else. If you do plan on coming here, have fun at games night x

First day I walked in and there was literally shit on the walls! I couldn't get any internet from my room until after loads of stress with technical support and even then signal was dreadful. The food i pretty grim (almost killed me on a few occasions no joke). I hope you make friends on your course because Rees is like the duping ground for wetties.

I stayed at Rees Hall as a student and I have to say the experience was horrible. I urge anyone not to stay here. If your looking to meet new people and be social this accommodation is not for you. Most people stay in there rooms along there being barely any social events on. If there are they are a poor attempt at getting people together. Along with there being other issues such as the lifts breaking all the time. If you have halls filled with 250+ students and staff you should have both lifts operating at all times. However, in this case you'd be lucky if one is working. Food is average. For the amount of money your paying for it I would not suggest your getting your moneys worth. With the catering staff being petty having a go at you if you take an extra slice of dessert. Consider that a bit petty considering I'm paying for their salary. I would urge any potential students to avoid these halls because I assure you that your expectations will not be filled. Flat would ideal

The hall management looks down on students and are not very friendly. The staff of the dining room is quite friendly, especially the ladies who always try to make sure that the hungry students get what they need. The quality of the food is not that great, especially the vegetables. They have a lot of desserts, over 7 choices of donuts and other fatty things. Wish they spend more money on proper vegetables and cook them well. The pantries on the floors are comparable with just a plain table and a smallest microwave ever. Every floor is carpeted and they don't clean the carpet very often. It's feels like a prison, because they also claim to do room checks and already assume that we violate their rules. I do not recommend this hall.

Great location, small rooms, average meals and little socialising. Nothing spectacular. Besides the great location and aesthetics (of the exterior) of the building, there's not much else to it. Inside it's a pretty standard university accommodation. Well kept and maintained, useful (and sometimes unpleasant) reception staff, completely average meals that lacked in nutritional value, segregation from other students, tiny communal rooms (that we weren't even allowed in most of the time) and too many doors that needed verification for access. I'd recommend Rees Hall for anyone that doesn't like socialising, isn't particularly hungry most of the time, enjoys being treated like a child, and likes paying too much for things. Other than that, it's not too bad. (If you're not a roadman, an introvert that doesn't need social stimulus, or you don't have rich parents that payed for your degree in a years salary, then Rees Hall is not for you).

Recommended if you don't mind living in a prison. Building needs to be demolished and renovated => Bigger Rooms.. No Other way.

Lovely location. Was not impressed with the food, mainly health wise, hardly any vegetables and almost always chips. Loved the staff and people I lived with!

Great halls to live in. Layout provides the opportunity to meet so many new people. Catering staff and porter staff all very helpful. Rooms of a decent size with ensuite. Great location, right next to the sea.

Great place to live in first year, was catered for so I wasn't dropped in the deep end of individual life. Great building with great facilities, worth the extra rent.
