The catering package is pretty bad and definitely not worth the money but is definitely best hall on campus, right next to park bar where you meet loads of people, especially older years and closest to lectures. Big flats mean you are bound to get on with someone in your flat!

Q
What does UP TO 6 PEOPLE SHARING A SHOWER/WC means? Does it means a single shower/WC is shared by 6 people or Shared Bathroom where toilets and showers are arranged into separate lockable cubicles accessible to all residents within the flat.

Very social and the best halls on campus! Only downside is there's no common room so we resort to the corridors!

A great hall with lots of people in one flat so you have many people to socialise with. Bar, washing, post and food outlets outside the front door which are very handy.

Unmissable social experience with maximum friends to meet. if you can put up with with the little rooms, average catered food and no real place to sit down other than the floor or beds in the flats then it is the best halls in reading to make lifetime friends.

Only bad thing is no communal spaces, however this forces you to be social! Great value for money as food is included. Room sizes are good as well.

It is a great social hall that is well kept. There are several bathrooms in each flat and the large groups in each flat makes it more sociable. The kitchens however could be slightly larger as a more social space for a flat of 26 or 14

Prime location - relatively cheap for reading ! However social space is non existent and the food is appalling. Would recommend if you cannot afford the more expensive halls at Reading.

Worst halls of residence at the uni. Not a 'budget' option as the catering allowance doesn't cover 3 meals a day.
