Pendle both has its advantages and disadvantages. One pro of Pendle was the moving in experience. I found the reps made it very easy to make friends and felt settled in the moment I stepped in the halls. The halls are quite expensive, particularly the superior ensuite, but the quality of the superior ensuite is good. The actual common room/bar area is fairly dated and could do with a refurbishment, but the JCR are very good and put lots of events on, including a live music night every Thursday which is always entertaining.

Good value for money and have a nice sized kitchen and rooms, if you get the ground floor the rooms are larger! Only pitfall is that there is no sitting area (such as sofas) which other colleges have.

Now the above rating for location is for the Pendle superior en suite. This is because the Pendle standard and en suite accommodation are separate and in different locations, with standard being next to the actual college and bar while en suite is closer to Lonsdale and Graduate colleges. Overall I thought the college accommodation was great. Nice big rooms and kitchens (But I lived on the top floor in house 27 crowtrees flat 8 and so the stair were killer!). The bar itself was lack luster. Hardly ever open while other colleges bars were open all the time, Even Cartmels was open for christs sake! BUT the common area on top of the bar was always open till midnight and has a few free arcade games and pool tables which is nice. If your looking for quite accommodation but also like to go out to other bars and have fun then Pendle is the place for you, After all. Captain slow went to Pendle ;D

Affectionately called Pendle 'Ghetto' since it doesn't have ensuites - but offers excellent value for money and nice rooms and kitchen. The block set up lets you meet lots of people and the bar has Pendle Live every week which showcases local live music.

Stayed in the most expensive accommodation on campus, was worth it although a little small. The social area for Pendle is not worth it, they really do need to do something about their bar!

Considering the standard of accommodation and its price... If I was a Fresher again, I wouldn't bother with living on campus. You can get far more for less money in the city accommodation, shared house or private halls like City Block or newly opened Damside.

(Standard accommodation) Shower heads don't come off No social space whatsoever aside from the kitchen. No where to socialise with other people in the building at all. They say there's security but I haven't really seen anyone around?? Too many stairs. It's kept clean and they replace stuff quick if it doesn't work. Location is good. Right next to central. Most lectures and seminars are close.

Cheap, centre of many parties and great management by the staff. Cleaners clean everything but your room and are lovely. Close to George Fox lecture theatre and has a shop within close proximity to the college. It's a very social area.

I'm just going to say AVOID AT ANY COSTS. The rooms have all got old furniture, old sinks. Showers have not got detachable head and sometimes there's no hot water. There's no privacy as they have horrible blinds that not cover the whole window instead of curtains like most colleges and no common rooms like other colleges. Location is also rubbish for what you're paying.

Not much in the way of social sports in the college unless you like bar 'sports' or football. Enjoyed the music in the bar. But the bar is usually dead and the only people in there are the JCR or people playing pool.

Pendle is situated really well with a maximum of an 8 minute walk to my lectures but it is on the edge of the campus so you don't feel hemmed in.Everyone is so friendly and there is a real community spirit.

Ummmm so I've never lived in halls, I rent my own flat but I've heard they're amazing, and been to visit my friend's a few times. Modern, spacious, and a nice range of halls for different personalities depending on if you want to party or study.
