As far as I’m aware there wasn’t any social spaces outside the individual flats. Park bar is very close and is a very social space (but not linked with the hall itself). The rooms are the best you’ll find on campus, double bed, en suite etc. It’s a luxury compared to most. It’s expensive but the location and amenities mean they can charge that much.
Highly overpriced but all reading halls are! No social area in flat except kitchen but we've never had a problem and park bar is 2 minutes away. Closest halls to campus, better rooms have views ove playing fields. Mackinder isn't amazing but it's the best you will get - at least out of the park group halls.
I have met many friends from Mackinder and everyone is lovely. Everyone seems to be respectful in regards to noise and you're always welcome over to people's flats even if you don't know them that well! The location is great with it being a five minute walk to the middle of campus where everything is.
