I first moved to iq halls and I didn't like it one bit so I decided to change to whitendale and my social life went up.My fflatmates were dead nice. We all went out together had laughs. They also respected me and did not drink due to my religion. The commin room is small but it allow us all to talk and chill out. Tge location is on canpus and it like 10 mins away from city. Thehall mamanagement is good. Security always on hand if you need them. Definitely worth the money!

Student Review: 3 /5
By On 11th August 18

- the location was very convenient. super close to all of my main buildings and the library, to the point where i could leave five minutes before my lecture and still make it in time. - disappointing room - no convenient storage e.g. most of the storage was high up but there wasn't much room for anything i'd quickly need. - the wardrobe was small & there was no bedside table. very frustrating. - the pin board was so huge that i couldn't even fill it all!! a lot of room for posters and little reminders, which was a pleasant surprise. - the kitchen was TINY. so small and it was often difficult for more than two of us to cook at the same time. - a lot of storage space!! having two refrigerators and an additional freezer was extremely helpful. - the oven looked kind of shady and the door was broken when we arrived, but my flatmate fixed it and it seemed to work. - wifi was extremely on and off, but this didn't seem to be limited to whitendale. - no common room???? why not?????

I loved living in whitendale but it's the people that make it great, it's very basic but what more do you want and the beds are surprisingly comfy! Going your washing is a pain and there's no social area

Not worth 83 pound a week, got a house for 80 pound a week. Although it is a good way to make friends

Overpriced, uncomfortable, and the cleaners only come about twice a term. Such a rip off. Only good things are the fast internet and it is close to town and campus!

You get the basics for every day living. The only downfall is not having a common room/living room where all of could hang out together. Altough a kitchen does a perfect job.
