Most helpful review

Been to 3 ‘well known’ student accoms in Reading since I came here in my foundation year, I am now in my 3rd year of Uni. I have to give a shoutout to Kendrick for actually giving a sh*t about students welfare, keeping the communal areas tidy and additionally provide 24/7 security and maintenance on standby… Anyways It’s been so long since I had a good ol’ all day breakfast due to the rising inflation, however Kendrick goes the extra mile to provide breakfast for a week once a month, so yeah it’s a solid 9/10 for me

I’m so surprised this accommodation came first, meaning other accommodations must have been so bad. Don’t waste time or money coming here. The only good thing about it is the location. Everything else is disorganised. Management don’t answer your problems till you literally scold them. The structure of the rooms are so horrible, when I first moved in it stunk so bad and was so dirty I had to clean it myself. There’s been several occasions where they have left students with no hot water to shower. Rooms and bathrooms are so tiny. There’s so much wrong with Kendrick. Go somewhere else

Living at Kendrick Halls for the past three years has been an incredibly positive experience, one that I feel fortunate to have had. From the moment I arrived, I was greeted with a warmth and professionalism that set the tone for my entire stay. All the staff members are very helpful especially Mrs Marilyn Carter which by her willingness to go above and beyond to help with whatever I needed has made my time here not just comfortable but also truly enjoyable.

Areas that the accomodation are in charge of cleaning clean are always 100% clean, they only reason it’s got a low score for me is due to other tenants not keeping the kitchen clean. However, every other aspect of living at Kendrick is lovely. They host unique events in the hub to liven up the social life and to get us connect, which I am extremely grateful for. The rooms are quite cozy and the perfect size to have my own space and not have too much to clean. If there are any issues, the staff ensure they are quick to amend them so we can go about our day without worrying.

Kendrick Halls is a really good off-campus accommodation. Most importantly you get your own bathroom and certainly do not have to worry about the cleanliness of your flatmates when they use theirs. Although you, with your flatmates have to clean your kitchens yourself, it's still a very good accommodation with wonderful customer service. It's about 25 minutes from campus by foot ( which I don't mind) so my Spotify premium doesn't go to waste anyways. All in all an 8/10 accom, not by any fault of kendricks, but some flatmates aren't as clean as others so it's basically a gamble. If you are lucky enough to get clean flatmates, kendrick halls will be amazing. It's also just like 20 minutes from the town centre too, so you got that over on campus students!
