Hamwic is fairly close to uni and the rooms are a somewhat decent size. Shower is awkward to use as it isn't centred (I sometimes have to stand up the wall to actually clean myself) Kitchen is pretty small considering how many people share (for me this is 10) - one fridge and one freezer doesn't seem like enough. Cupboard spacing is also a problem, you have to be one of the first to move in to get a big cupboard which actually fits your food in. Common room is okay. Chill rooms on each floor are great and well-needed. Maintenance was fairly poor - we went a whole week without hot water in our kitchen. Wifi is also pretty poor and can be pricey!!! Can be EXTREMELY loud. Cleaning is exceptional - cleaners are lovely too. Overall, definitely not worth paying over £120 p/week. If you're looking for a quiet halls, try DMA or Emily Davies.

Internet is usually okay. Flatmates are rich, posh and don't see eye to eye with me. Its usually quiet and calm. 25 minute walk from campus. The lift and hallways are filthy, door has broken too so security is at risk. No flat parties.

Great location close to uni and city centre. Major plumbing issues. Have had a few electrical problems. They seem to house all the chavs in this hall, which is annoying when they pull the fire alarm at 3am, 4 times per term.

Very good location but rooms aren't big and quite expensive. En-suite is functional but seems susceptible to leaky plumbing.

This is okay if you find people you fit in with. There is a lot of people who want to make friends but this place is very much like school for clicks. I wouldn't advice it if you don't want to go out every single night drinking.

Very pricey for what you get, sometimes it seems like the cleaners only empty the bins and don't actually clean, the new parcel delivery system sucks (-1 star for management). The common room on each floor is pointless because there is nothing in there. The main one is okay, but always crowded and normally only football on the TV. So -2 stars for common room.
