Read Lucia Foster Welch Reviews
I have just finished living at Lucia Foster Welch and enjoyed my stay. Cleaners did a good job cleaning the flat during week days and I really enjoyed spending Freshers at this halls. You meet a great variety of people so it’s easy to socialise. Only things I would say it would be nice if the common room could be in the same building as the flats as I think it would be used more. Other than that I’ve enjoyed my stay and had little problems. Cleaners can sometimes be loud when coming in in the morning.
The halls weren't very clean...the rooms felt like prison cells.. The corridor was dark. The rooms were poorly ventilated causing damp. If you don't like clubbing and going out at night it's hard to socialise with people... The halls were loud especially when people had been drinking... It felt unsafe to leave my door unlocked when I was in there at night.
Very homely, and due to it basically being a big house, whenever lonely, there's always someone around. Basic but a lot of student accommodation is. Lovely Landlord who's always checking we're okay, (not homesick etc) absolutely perfect location. 10 mins from collegiate, 15 from city. 5 min walk to shops. Downfalls however include not having a washing machine, (and the local launderette is expensive!!) not enough cupboard space in the kitchen which can become very overcrowded. The wifi doesn't reach into bedroom so for work I have to go to uni, and at home I have to use my mobile internet, and a lack of fridge space. Overall, a nice place to live, however, basic. Good for social interaction, however, if you don't click with the housemates, I can imagine it becomes very lonely. bedrooms are very dated, but once personalised, can become lovely. my bed is really comfy and I have a lot of area to work at my desk. good car parking. Made some good friends.
I visited many different student accommodations during my time at Southanpton Solent university and Lucia Foster was by far the best. Being put into flats of 10 gives you the chance to really bond with the people you lived with and 7 of the 9 other people I lived with back in halls i am now living with for the 3rd year.I would suggest choosing halls where you're put into flats. It is also very easy to socialize with other flats if you don't get on with the people you live with. Location is OK, 15 minute walk to uni, bit of a treck to the main nightlife square Bedford place (25 minute walk) but it wasn't the end of the world. We did have a problem with our cleaners during our stay at Lucia Foster where it was found out that they were stealing peoples food and alcohol. But it was quickly sorted out and we were given a ASDA voucher to replace items. There is also no wifi which was a bit of a pain. But internet access to laptops through Ethernet cables. Overall Choose LFW
Better than I expected - good living space with great wifi (and Ethernet). Don't use the common room much as I just hang out with people in our flat. The lift in Hudson House is dodgy though, which sucks. Loads of storage space in the small non-en-suit rooms too.
im a mature student (23) and so far its been a bit hectic with partys and drinks (which there is nothing wrong with). Its very social here and everyone is very friendly but if it is a bit party central at the same time. other halls my be better if you want to relax more.
