Thieving bastards on the management. Plenty of problems with the hall and your deposit gets deducted strangely with all sorts of "damage charges" from incidents nobody even knew of. Not sure about other halls, but you're better off staying at outside accommodation since the management is out to take as much of your deposit as possible. Meal plans not worth it. Overpriced food with no nutritional value and it doesn't last you the week unless you only eat 1 meal a day. Lunch is mostly leftovers from breakfast.

Really classic hall. With lots of character and great social life. Has a pub which is great for snake bites and jugs of alcohol

Very spacious, really clean, catered food is alright, but nothing under the line of decency.

If it wasn't for the architecture, I would say this hall would be mediocre if not worse

Very sociable halls, easy to make your way around. Also the fact there is a bar two min walk away from my room means a nice place to hang out and drink. Kitchen was also modern which is surprising given the fact Wantage is an older halls.

I really love staying in Wantage but I'm not sure if I love it because it's such a great hall or because of the people in it. The wifi is super fast and we do have 'Eat At Wantage' and it's a very old building so it has lots of history in it BUT, it's quite a walk from Wantage to School or to Union and the Common room is... almost always empty. The rooms in Old Court are big so you get to be creative but the ones in New Court are quite small and kind of remind me of a walk in closet.

Lots of out dated rules saying where you cannot go even if it makes no sense. Security is terrible. Food is s*** 70% of the time. Other than that though everything else was fantastic.
