Most helpful review

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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
