Langwith is a home from home. The minute I arrived here I felt at home. I've made by best friends here, found out so much about myself and each other through the events in the College, the atmosphere and more. I guarantee you'll be shouting 'I'm Langwith 'til I die' from the back of the bus before the end of Freshers' Week! Langwith love, #LTID!

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 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

All very new and flashy! Good facilities, thick walls (godsend!) and 24/hr porters (you will inevitably get locked out of your halls at 3Am one day). Central student bar with lots of events organised by the college, all free/very cheap. Located on East campus, close to Law/Management/Theatre/Film/computer science. Good bus service/short walk to other campus, but the location is something to consider.

I was so incredibly nervous about coming to University but honestly, Langwith was the best college I could have chosen and I’m so grateful to have lived here. There is such a strong sense of community spirt, the college always has more supporters at sporting events than any others. Incredibly friendly and approachable college tutors whom have helped me out in my time of need. Thank you Langwith for such a fantastic year!

From the minute I arrived on the the pretty Heslington East campus, Langwith felt like my home. It has everything you need in walking distance or just hop on the bus to town. The people in the college are like my family (made friends for life in the first few weeks) and living here made settling into my first year at uni a lot easier. I'll always be Langwith 'til I die!

This year in Langwith has been so nice! Langwith is a top accommodation, with the bus 4 and 44 going to the city centre and Heslington West in a few minutes! You will live among ducks, rabbits, lakes... You almost feel like you live in a small world out of the campus! If you hesitate, do not hesitate any longer, and jut go for it! You won't regret it :)

Had so much fun here in my first year. The atmosphere within the college is unbelievable, with most people getting stuck into college life. Never a shortage of things to do with loads of stuff going on during the day and in the evenings. Worth noting that the other colleges don't get close to the amount of support at sports fixtures with the 'black and yellow army' being ever-present this year.

I lived in Philip Brockbank and I absolutely loved the experience there! Room sizes are suitable and having 3/4 bed and closed shower makes it even better!! The place being in the middle of Heslington East also makes it suitable for both 4 and 44 bus stops! Loved it! and hopefully I will be back on the 3rd year!

From day one, you're made to feel welcome. Everything becomes an occasion in this college - whether it's a free food BBQ or a 3rds football match - the college is out in force armed with food and speakers. There's events happening on a weekly basis from nights out to 'take me out' so you're never at a loss for things to do or people to see.

I can't decide whether it was good value for money... The prices are huge. Social wise it is alright, but there is a sense that if you are not part of the committee then you are an outsider. As for cleaning though it is top notch. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed living here. But for the student experience I could have probably got a better one in cheaper accommodation elsewhere.

Langwith has the best community spirit of any college at York(: From day 1 you feel a part of the family and that continues throughout your time at the best college on campus. Accommodation is so lovely and the fields around are great for running. there's a free shuttle bus to the other campus so you're never too out of the way and the glasshouse is a decent place to chill. the only problem is the lack of a central common room but there's one over at goodricke that can be used or just someone's kitchen. would recommend to anyone looking for the best accommodation on campus(:
