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

Postgraduates beware- these are not the halls you are looking for. Paper thin walls, minimal cleaning and almost functioning? appliances pretty much sum up my year in this place. You can expect to share a kitchen with up to 9 other people. You can also expect to have very little space for utensils and even less fridge/freezer space. Facilities such as the toilet and bathroom are best described as 'budget'. If you enjoy showers in confined spaces and toilets with hit or miss flush functions, then St George's might be for you. As mentioned at the start, any postgraduate unfortunate enough to have to do a tenure here will be simply lumped at the back part of the halls because 'it's quieter.' I can confirm it's no less quiet than the front part of the halls. While the location to both campuses is good and the internet is fairly good and consistent, this does not excuse the poor quality of these halls. My recommendation? Treat yourself... To better accommodation, elsewhere.

I live in an old block , so its" old" and no lift. Also , the toilet cannot flush properly. But, the room is relatively big , with a large common area.

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.
