Most helpful review

Living in St George's Hall was the best decision I ever made. St George's is very sociable, I made my closest friends there and we knew/were friends with nearly everyone in our block. St George's is in the perfect location; right by the main campus and Sports Park and right by the bus stop into town (it is also walkable to town but the bust is very cheap). Perfect for if you want to work in town or go on nights out there as the bus runs 24/7. The wardens at St George's are so helpful and will help you with anything you need, and the maintenance team will fix any problem quickly for you. Great accommodation for nightlife, but also study and quite spaces if you wish to use them. En-suite rooms are lovely. Would 100% recommend!

Living in halls was such an amazing experience. I made so many of my friends there. The room I had was clean and accommodating enough for me to live happily, and the halls were social enough to ensure that I didn’t spend too much time in my bedroom!

Rooms are a good size. Beds are extremely comfortable and difficult to get out of in the morning. Facilities are good. Kitchens are highly sociable places and good amount of space for storage and in fridges. Bit of a trek to campus but a pleasant walk on a sunny day (need wellies over the sports ground). Close to the sports centre, bus stops and local shops. It is quiet on the whole but St George's makes a good bolt-hole. Staff are lovely.

Decent halls, good room size. If you're lookig to socialize this probably isn't the halls for you - it's really quiet and not much goes on. It's close to the Uni, shops and gym.

Extremely cold and nobody does anything about it no matter how much you complain. Good location, but not worth this much money .

Close to campus so you can get there in 5 min if you take the short cut. Other than that it's a bit mediocre

If you're in a washbasin room the kitchens aren't big enough.

The receptionist lost my parcel. Without reviewing the cctv or paying me back the amount. They just let the case go. SMH.

Really good halls, just the right distance from campus. There isn't much of a social space but large kitchens where everyone hangs out

The shared bathroom accomodation was terrible . Bathroom bins never emptied, toilet water overflowed into the kitchen . Kitchen was tiny and shared between 12 - not enough room or chairs for everyone to use the kitchen at once. Wouldn't recommend if you can afford anything better! But it's the joint cheapest on campus along with wessex

As the cheapest hall, St. George's is still a little pricey at £100 a week, but the bedrooms are larger than I expected and we all have a washbasin each too. In my flat, I share one toilet and one shower with 5 other people, but we are able to use the other two flat's facilities on our floor. We do only have one fridge between 6 of us so I have had to invest in an extra, mini fridge to help us all along. The location is fantastic, 3 minute walk to the gym and the same to the corner shops. Takes about 10 minutes to walk to campus.
