if you decide to come to this uni, do NOT stay in halls! firstly, the halls are very expensive for what you get- there are constantly issues with the hot water not working. They say it's because only one person can have a shower at any one time. but how does that work when there's 8 of you in a flat who all have 9am classes and all want t shower? next, the cleaners always refuse to cleans everyone's flats unless they are spotless. they won't even mop the floor if theres some washing up to be done. housing at Winchester uni are a massive group of bored workers with nothing to do but go round flats moaning about the mess or dragging student into meetings to get them in trouble. if you stay in halls at Winchester uni they will take the entire student experience away from you! just be clever and go to Southampton instead
Nice halls. Very conveniently located. Get put with a mixed bunch of people so make you friends easily.
Was absolutely unreal had a class time
Burma was an incredible student housing. Best location, right on campus- beautiful rooms and large kitchen, and great en suite.
Great value for money best place to stay on site
The halls are quite nice with large kitchens even if the rooms are quite small. Most of the flats have a great view and any maintenance issues are fixed soon after they are reported
It’s not as good as everyone says it is
I didn’t live in halls but spent most of my time with friends and partners in Burma halls and looked alright.
No common room and very little management only worth the money if you share the room.
WiFi sometimes drops out, in the winter we had huge problems with water and were left without for a few days and were given litre bottles of bottled water. Beds are extremely uncomfortable and rooms are roasting on a hot day (not enough ventilation) due to the windows only opening about 3 inches.
My flat was all I needed, and was well maintained
Quite cut off from others but so close to campus
was v clean and nice but internet was crap and not v much 3G
It’s unreal, ideal location aswell
I personally had a horrendous experience in halls. There is no social or general common room in the building, all you have access to is your personal room and a shared kitchen
Good sized rooms, small kitchen/dining room. Very clean
Apart from issues with fire alarms it was everything you needed
The halls experience was so good, I miss being so close to university. Winchester made moving into halls so much easier and made for a great first year.
Pretty good accommodation but not a lot of kitchen storage space
Perfect location to lectures and other campus facilities. I enjoyed my time staying there.
Great, modern flats and are very open! Cleaner comes in twice a week and maintenance is easy to contact. My block had poor wifi but it may be different elsewhere. Rooms are small but spacious enough and the ensuite is great! The main problem is how often fire alarms occur, but the fan in the kitchen needs to be on when cooking to prevent them.
As a disabled student, I spent three years living in halls. The maintenance team were always available and were quick to fix any problem. The cleaners were all kind and respectful of the students around them.
Burma is the best halls for socialising, and really nice rooms and kitchen living area
Very close to lectures and modern
Needs to be cheaper. Lot of issues with lifts not working and no compensation to anyone
Such great halls but many of the on campus halls at Winchester are equally as great
Private flat in Burma is very good but not for social interaction
Good location, not too loud, good social experience
They are what you would expect for a university. Very close to campus and allow you to enjoy your time at uni in a relaxed and comfortable home away from home.
I didn;t live in halls but there was no option for not filling this in. What I heard was that this was good.
Halls are a bit over priced for the actual content, but so close the campus that you can’t really complain.
Amazing location of halls. Kitchen and rooms are really good sizes. However, for the price it's quite expensive.
Great place to live, so close to your lectures that you can roll out of bed 10 minutes before a lecture starts and you won't be late! The halls are cleaned twice a week but be warned, if you leave lots of dishes on the sides they will not clean anywhere and if like us you do it a few times the cleaners will hold a grudge and not clean your halls if there are just a few things out later in the term (we also caught our cleaners sitting around with a cup of tea when they thought we weren't in!). The lifts have a tendency to break once or twice a term but they are fixed super quickly (the maintenance team is amazing!) and you will have to face the super early fire alarm tests but you would get that anywhere. The kitchen is big enough for all 8 of your flat and the seating means that there is somewhere that you can all hang out together.
Good place. Expensive and not as large as other rooms on site, but definitely worth the money.
Its a good hall but its extreamly over priced.
It doesn't have a homey feel to it. Feels a bit prison like. The common rooms, while practical, are not very nice to sit in. People prefer to sit in the hallway, rather than the kicthen
Living in Burma has been fun, everyone in the flat gets on really well with each other and we socialise with people in the other flats quite often. Only problem is that the fire alarms are really sensitive so in the first semester they were going off really often
All in all one of the best halls around
Cleaned twice a week and very spacious- the best space for pres.
My first semester in Burma has been amazing. The friends I have made in my flat I know I'll be friend with for life. The halls are clean, tidy and well managed, the bedrooms are spacious and the communal area in the kitchen is great for flat parties ;)
Again, the internet is a bit odd and there have been a few mishaps along the way but I am ultimately satisfied with what I am paying for.
Good location and excellent WiFi. Very good view on top floor and cleaned well. Expensive for amount of space in rooms though.
The cleaner will only clean, if it is already clean
Good halls, very modern, well kept, cleaned daily. Well insulated!! Sometimes too hot!
Very lovely rooms, although a little small but the en-suite is excellent. The kitchen is big with plenty of fridge/freezer and cupboard space and the halls are next to your lectures!
Lived here for a year closest to uni can literally roll out of bed! Cleaners are a bit rubbish as they don't clean if it's too messy and don't clean if you have already kept it quite clean ! However really expensive for what you actually get!
Improvement needed for social spaces
Water pressure is Block C is non-existent and the heating was never up to any good standard.
Close to the uni, social, comfortable and is very smart.
Cleaners would only clean if it was already clean
It's a quiet and well kept hall
LOVE THIS PLACE!! except from the firealarms that goes of so often, it´s perfect here!!
Burma Road Student Village is the most expensive student managed accommodation at the University of Winchester. However what you get is brilliant. The kitchen and common area is big and modern and always clean due to the fantastic cleaners that come in every weekday. The room itself has so much space and storage. Regarding the location its brilliant, you can walk to the main campus in less that 2 minutes and town in 10 minutes. Wouldn't have wanted any other accommodation but Burma Road!
Nice, clean halls but it's always noisy eg. from the nursery opposite the block
loved staying here in Burma, even if the fire alarm goes off daily but that's just because of people in other flats burning things, the block B lift has broken down a few times but has been fine since. It's been very sociable as me and my flatmates tend to travel over the flat next to us and hang out so it 's really fun, also being close to the main campus is a great help as the walk is steep but quick :)
Wi-fi intermittently disconnects from time to time and has poor signal range. Halls are priced very expensively (£5325) comapred to the prices of other local universities such as Bournemouth (£4880); considering the basic nature of provisions and lack of a common room outside of the kitchen, it seems a tad expensive. Housing management however is top notch.
I'm in Block E of Burma Road and the rooms are a decent size and the en-suite is adequate for what you need. The kitchen is good and bright. The cleaners do a good job and keep the kitchen clean. My only issue is with the automatic sensor lights in the bathroom, mine keeps going off if I'm in the shower for more than 10 minutes.
It's a fantastic place to live if you make the effort to get to know your neighbours
Really new rooms with really nice feel, on the small side compared to other halls
My first year at uni was amazing and living in Burma did the experience so much more fun!
amazing location, spacious, made some great friends, internet good,
Rooms a bit small, could of been better designed
Flat of girls, so much fun, plenty of space rooms were so good and make you feel right at home
I loved burma! I lived then when it was new so was so nice clean and new! Matinence were really good if anything broke and I met so many amazing people there
Very modern and good value for money
The halls are cleaned twice a week... not very well. The location is the best out of all the university halls (15 mins from town, literally in the middle of campus). Noise is an issue for the middle blocks. There is no social space other than the kitchen but I assume that is normal? In terms of value for money, the room is tiny compared to Queens halls, yet at Burma we pay more.
It's a good place to live if you actually make an attempt to leave your flat and make friends. If you don't like stairs, don't live in Block B as the lift always breaks. Also I hope you like wake up calls as the fire alarm can go off in the middle of the night. Other than that, a great place to live
