Pros: -the best on campus accommodation. rooms are modern (spacious if you go for shared bathroom!) in great quality and look pretty -the best college on east! if you're into nightlife langwith does great events like marmite and lovely college spirit -the college team work so hard and are amazing at what they do- they put on arts/music events weekly and really care about the college (will talk to anyone) -the distance to west campus really didn't matter in terms of going to lectures as free buses run every 10 mins and east is such a pretty campus -greggs <3 Cons -sometimes you can feel a bit detached from west campus as pretty much all of the society stuff is there, as well as other colleges like derwent/james (eg friends over there), it has more events/is bigger in general (if you're close with your flat it probably wont matter but it did a bit for me lol) -pricey accommodation!! but its definitely worth it- most york accommodation is super expensive but langwith is worth it imo
Covid-19: cancelled rent for third term
Langwith has got to be one of the best accommodations in York university however, there are some problems. They write on the York website that the shared bathroom gets cleaned everyday when in fact it only gets cleaned once a week. The other problem with the bathroom is that there is no window, so it can smell and leave odours around. I really like the room space and the study desk. There are plenty of plug sockets near the desk and the bed is comfy. The kitchen is very good with enough Soave for storage and space. You get what you get paid for except the cleaning.
If you are a postgraduate avoid these halls at all costs! From day one we were made to feel unwelcome, when we arrived there was no one to help us with the location of our rooms or even tell us which block we lived in. There wasn't even anyone on reception to give us our key never mind explain where things were on campus. This was shocking as we arrived within the move in times specified by the university! Things only got worse from here, unfortunately we had a lot of issues with other students in our flat (not cleaning, arguments etc). It became so bad that we reported it to the college who initially seemed helpful our assigned tutor arranged a kitchen meeting... which he then didn't show up to. Any emails sent to the college about the deteriorating relations in the flat were not even acknowledged with an email back confirming receipt. When issues were dealt with we were not informed of the outcome which left us feeling as if we were openly being ignored.
Langwith is one of the most welcoming places I've ever been in. Being an international student, I was worried about moving and meeting new people, but everyone in my college is extremely helpful and it did not take long before I started feeling like home.
The sense of community you get in Langwith is unparalleled. There's always a chance to #getinvolved and something going on for langwithians to enjoy. The accommodation itself is beautiful, everything is within reach and this improves the quality of life immensely.
Langwith College is extremely welcoming and friendly, and I'm so glad I'm here. The rooms are modern, with excellent 3/4 beds and brilliant showers! The kitchens are big enough for all of us, but could probably get cleaned a bit more. Apart from that, it's excellent!
Quite expensive compared to what I've known before even if we have free Wifi, cleaning services and a brand new common room. The porters are really nice and are doing a great job. The Glasshouse is a good place to chill and prices are very affordable. If location is a problem for you, think about it before choosing your college.
Langwith accommodation is amazing, very spacious, warm and well looked after! It has the best community spirit and the glasshouse is a brilliant hub with friendly porters and staff! I'm so glad I got Langwith, it is definitely the best college!
LANGWITH TILL I DIE!! I've never been somewhere that makes you feel part of a community so incredibly quickly. Everyone is so friendly, willing to help one another and the atmosphere is second to none. The accommodation itself is incredible, really good quality and definitely great value for money. Wouldn't want to be anywhere else!
Langwith, I believe, is the best college because before you even get to uni, you can't escape the community feel that Langwith oozes. From the first day here you'll be immersed in the college and be chanting 'Langwith till I die' and meaning every word. There's always something going on in Langwith, something to always get involved in. All of the staff are lovely and their doors are always open if you have a problem. There is so much support in this college and it really takes care of its students. Langwith is also home to the only licensed social space on Hes East: The Glasshouse, it's cosy and welcoming and home to free food Thursday's - a big plus in any students eyes. Finally, the accommodation is super super nice. The beds are so so comfy and the rooms are big with plenty of storage. Langwith is a college that can be called home as soon as you set foot on the grounds. I really am Langwith till I die.
Moved in to Langwith 3 weeks ago and I already feel like I'm at home, the college system makes you feel a part of the community and I've never met so many friendly people! Accommodation is fab and the showers are better than mine at home :) Would definitely definitely recommend to anyone
Though I only live 45 minutes away from the University, staying at Langwith makes me not want to go home as often as I should! The atmosphere is great, I really feel like a University Student here, and that's what I came here for, I'd recommend Langwith to anyone thinking of coming to York
