It was quite expensive for what you got, but St pats is most definitely the most social hall, you meet pretty much everyone, and have loads of friends from lots of different courses etc, there's not much in way of social spaces, or there is but they're not on each corridor, the wifi is crap and drops all the time but there's a cable internet? I enjoyed my time in St pats loads, I can't say for the older part, but I hear it's quieter and good for mature/post grad accommodation

Despite the halls themselves looking like Alcatraz, the social aspect is spot on

Unity over the large hall corridors, and our block was the most involved in all the themed nights

Basically St Pats is a s**t hole, but when you live there its your s**thole. you get food so there's no washing up and its easily got the best social life as everyone is a mixture between Danny Dyer and Amy Winehouse. Hardly any common rooms or dining rooms, so some unfortunate is forced to have pre drinks forced upon them every night, and because its St Pats, pre drinks actually happen every night. Sure it looks like a prison but when s**t gets broken maintenance are quick to fix it and the cleaners are proper nice geezers. Internet is proper decent.. Basically St Pats s**ts on everywhere else because its bare jokes.

New court is a great social experience due to the corridor layout however old court is a lot less social due to the seperate blocks and it being a designated quiet area (which most people have not requested)

St. Pat's is one of the furthest halls away from campus, the cleaning is inconsistent. The common room is not frequently used very well apart from for pre-drinks and in old court there are no social spaces for everyone to chill, one of the most annoying things.

One of the oldest halls in reading, they've learnt over the years how to give freshers and mature students the best experience of halls and the social aspects that come with university life. Unlike most modern halls you are not split up into corridors of 6-12, instead you have the entire roam of 200 people to be friends with and socialise with. The catered experience really helps students to have more time for socialising... I mean work... and also is no more expensive than uncatered halls. You'll be cooking for yourself for your entire life after so why not put it off another year!

Definitely what I wanted from my halls experience! Well known for its liveliness, parties and being crazy. Known as the most sociable halls at Reading uni, I felt like part of one big wild family. So easy to meet new people immediately as there are no flat divisions. You'll find a group of people you fit with no matter what because there's such a range all living together! I am definitely going to miss it there in second year, it didn't look much at first but i soon realised its the people that make it great!

Decent social halls but as I previously stated there doesn't seem like there's much to do but drink. I ended up meeting a fair few people though. It's also very expensive, private accommodation is usually 1-2 grand cheaper per year.

Not the most attractive hall on campus, nor the best location BUT the atmosphere makes it an amazing place to live, especially the rivalry with a nearby hall called Wantage.

Catered food is all from frozen packets, not nice. There aren't really any inviting places for everyone to sit and chat except our rooms, but the fact that it's not in flats is brilliant. You can mix with who you want, and not be trapped with people you don't like.

Was so expensive for terrible service. Food was horrendous, I got food poisoning a couple of times. Our warden had no idea how to do his job, rooms were extremely easy to break into, with someone breaking into my locked room while I was sleeping, waking me up, and then leaving again. Internet was also very poor, no good for studying. JCR charged us very high fees at the beginning of the year, then we heard nothing of them for the rest of the year. All UoR halls of residence are now out of my price range as a working class student, with a terrible level of service in return.
