I visited my friend in the hall and I love the place
Living environment is quite good, but a bit overpriced
Been living there three year next year love childs it’s has its pros and cons but it’s pros are much more and better than cons. Close to main campus, easy access to parking but washing clothes is a bit far especially in the cold
The quiet lifestyle is well respected and made a crucial impact on my success at the university!
The room is just enough for 1 person but would be better if it was a little bigger. The en suite bathroom is great and the shower is a cabin (not wet floor which is amazing). The kitchen is shared with 7 other rooms which may get messy sometimes. I wish there were more social spaces closer to the residential buildings. The social spaces are 7 mins walk away. I wish there were couches in the kitchen.
No matter what you do you will get silverfish, try and block up all the holes in your room as you see them because staff will not help, for what they are the rooms are overpriced, bridges is nicer if you can sacrifice the ensuite. There are lots of parties though and sometimes people are nice. It's just really overpriced.
The wifi connection is so poor
Overpriced as hell, but very good quality
Child’s was a decent halls I enjoyed it
Amazing Halls cannot fault at all
One of the better halls On Campus and right next to park bar (holy grail at uni)
Child’s Hall definitely needs to improve its social activities and events
Most unsociable halls in my opinion especially if you don’t get along with your flat mates. The layout definitely doesn’t help. Rooms are nice though definitely the most modern out of all the halls and includes an en-suite which is convenient in comparison to shared bathrooms at other halls. It’s just a quick 5-10 minute walk to lecture buildings and the on campus co-op so really close to everything. But from my experience I’d definitely go for catered halls as it’s a lot more sociable and you can still cook your own snacks in the small kitchens they provide. Less equipped than self catered kitchens though.
Childs hall is close to the whiteknights lake, making your walks amazing. It’s also very close to central campus, so union and coop are extremely easy to get to. The proximity to park bar is just right allowing easy access to the reception,food and drinks without being too noisy.
The halls were lovely to live in with great space and en suits. However I would of preferred to stay somewhere else as the halls were majority international students who kept to themselves. If you want a comfortable stay close to park bar its great, but if you want to make friends with your flatmates I would recommend other halls.
Child’s hall was the nicest hall I’ve seen out of all the universities I visited, the rooms and social area are so nice and it’s social.
Expensive (£160 a week) but very nice. Really good social stuff organised
Loved living in childs. The jcr and management was amazing.
I'm in a flat with all over seas students that are not freshers, so i have found it very hard to make any friends in my flat, as they all already have things in common. My room is nice but was not very clean when i moved in. The rent is so expensive, especially for students! There is no social space apart from the kitchen but if its filled with people you don't know its very uncomfortable to go in there, a lounge should be available in the hall. The Childs hall wardens are amazing though and can help sort any issues. Overall a good place to live on campus, near to all buildings and nice view. Can be very noisy with many drunk students - but thats uni for you!
Childs Hall is a lovely place to be- lots of space, very close to campus and great views!
Good halls, lovely room and bathroom and lack of social space made it very antisocial
Very poor service provided from upp residetial services they invade your privacy, breach h&s and fire safety regulations and charge very high rents of £159.60 a week value for money no chance!!!
Good value for money. Could be cheaply
Fantastic!!! Great location, a lot of storage space, bins were cleaned daily and kitchen weekly. Parking close by. 40 weeks went by a breeze
Lovely halls, new and pretty modern. Very expensive for what they are though
i did not enjoy childs, the people i lived with were nasty and inconsiderate and very very messy. I paid 45 pounds of JCR fees and they did not do anything extra or organise anything for us. People smoke so close to the buildings and it stinks. Theres no close common area and when the kitchen is super messy you have no where to go so its gets really claustrophobic.
Childs is amazing, great for socialising! The hall quality is also to a great standard, has a lovely double bed and en suite
my review is that i advice people to stay in childs hall because its a quiet area that has a nice view.
Child's hall is great, enough space for everything, and space for socialising or independence. A good step up from living at home. Nice location, perfect distance from everywhere, and great views out the back.
My room was not clean when I arrived. The lift in Quainton is constantly broken. JCR is disorganized
great standard of living with big rooms, comfy beds and a great en suite. Kitchens with modern facilities and plenty of room for all 10 of us!
Very nice, modern halls conveniently located right next to park bar and a 5-10 minute walk to Central Whiteknights Campus. Due to the lack of a common room and the fact that buildings are secluded into separate flat your social experience very much depends on who you get in your flat and the quality of the JCR committee. Overall however,I have thoroughly enjoyed my halls experience and would recommend anyone contemplating staying in Childs
In these hall international residents experience 3 problems. 1 - A lot of drunk people screaming and laughing at 3am in the morning everywhere in the hall, starting from the corridors, finishing by kitchens and garden. 2 - no attempts have been made by the staff to control the situation. It really bothers. They wake up only when you call them at 3-4 o'clock in the morning when you are just tired by noise and disturbance. But I don't want to report every single night! I want to sleep every night without such thoughts. 3- these parties occur 3-4 times a week and it leaves a lot a lot of mess everywhere in the residence: floors, kitchens, lifts, corridors. Cleaner comes only once a week, so it is very dirty other 6 days. Rubbish.
