Unlike many other universities, we were not allowed to have people over after 11pm. You would expect that as young adults they would not set us rules that we did not even have a home. Moreover, our common room was everything but common, as we were only allowed in it if we booked it. I would rather call it a boring room, as it only had chairs, and it could only be used during early hours. Also, there were no events to facilitate the socializing aspect of living in halls. These, and several other issues, made me never be in my halls. Facilities wise, it does have nice rooms, but its legislation weakens this aspect.

Very expensive (6.2k for 38 weeks, it's going to be 6.4k in 2017/18!) Internet wasn't very reliable, but I used ethernet for my console which made it better. I never used the common room, and didn't know we had one for the first month. Cleaning was an issue as students often refused to take out the bins, leaving them until the flat smelled. Otherwise I loved the accomodation, and would choose it again if the above issues were resolved.

The rooms are spacious and well laid out with a large desk to work on, put your speakers on or makeup on, the wardrobe is big but you'll need to fold up a lot of clothes. The en suite is more of a wash room and water spreads easy in there. The kitchens are big and cupboards galore. The cleaner will only clean if the kitchen is clean and will probably sing and hum as she bashes the Hoover into your bedroom door. They don't mind partying as long as you keep the hall tidy and check with hallmates first. Didn't use the common room as you have to sign into it. Housekeeping are lovely staff very friendly. Wifi is brilliant.

The room is lovely and spacious as is the kitchen. The lights in the kitchen can mean that the cupboards get warm sometimes. The cleaner doesn't clean but housekeeping staff are very friendly.

The double bed and ensuite are amazing! I never had any problems living here. It's quite secluded from the rest of campus, which is actually a good thing as it means its quieter, and security are less likely to come down there if you're having a party etc. It's in quite a green area as well, which I liked. The only downside is that there isn't anywhere to socialise except for the kitchen.

Double bed and a big table are decent. Bathroom is a wetroom and sink doesn't flow properly most of the time. Not worth £6.2k. Cleaners do a great job cleaning up. Wifi is slow everywhere in general. Halls is less than 10 minutes away from lectures.

Fire alarm went off too often, and at inconvenient times, security would always be late to come and sort out situation. Maintenance was unsatisfactory. Music could be heard from Medicine

I reported my broken door 3 times and it still isn't fixed. It's a trek to get to lectures in the morning and get home at night. I thought it would be quieter here but you can hear the sports teams yelling 24/7. I have a great set of flatmates though which is probably the only plus.

Brilliant living conditions, overall experience completely depends on your flatmates, sometimes it can feel a bit isolated due to no real communal space 15 min walk from anywhere on campus

It's expensive but you are in Surrey, with a double bed and an en suite so? This pricing can be understood but personally it should be cheaper- there should be car parking too for all!

Loved the year I spent in Wedderburn, had 2 massive flat parties and loads of small ones. Hall is away from the security so very rarely disturbing the fun we had. This hall would have been so much better if it had a social room/area.

A really spacious and lovely sized room with a massive bed (with underbed storage), large corner desk and a great en suite. The social spaces lack slightly as the kitchen can be a tight squeeze for gatherings but every makes do. Usually lots of sociable people and if you are looking for a party you will always be able to find one however, the location makes it ideal for quiet time as being just out of the centre of campus means there is a great deal less noise!

Fantastic rooms, really comfortable double beds with en-suites. It's expensive but you definitely get what you pay for. The staff are very reasonable and won't blame everyone in a flat for one person's untidiness. Overall fantastic, the only issue is the mobile reception but that's because of the location - which is worth it!

Spacious rooms with double beds. Wifi isn't fantastic and the cleaner is rude and comes early and makes loud noises with the hoover against the bedroom doors and wouldn't let me cook when she was in the kitchen. The management team of Wedderburn are really helpful and solve your problems quickly.

Really nice halls, but they're expensive. Wedderburn and Gowar are practically identical to Butler, Tuke and Williamson, but are located further away from the rest of campus (sometimes good, sometimes a literal pain after a long day). The "common room" isn't actually one, it's something you have to book, but there's a nice grassy area between Gowar and Wedderburn where you can sit down.

On the pricey side, but nonetheless you are paying for a good sized room complete with double bed and ensuite. The kitchen is shared between eight flatmates, providing a nice social space and probably the easiest way to make friends once you arrive on campus. The kitchen and communal areas are kept clean (with the exception of of course of the dishes which are your own responsibility) by friendly cleaning staff and to our surprise they also take the rubbish out for you! The slight downside to this hall is that it is further out of the centre of campus compared to halls such as Tuke or Butler but still costs the same price.

At the bottom of campus, both good and bad. Quiet but long walks. However at least it's on campus. expensive, not covered by my loan. Have a cleaner come in every week day and he cleans the kitchen and empties the bin which is really good. Don't even think there is a common room to be honest.

They'd turn the heating off a fair bit to 'fix it' but it was quite welcome really because the majority of the time it felt like the Sahara desert in there. The cleaners didn't really give a s**t but you can deal with it because, for a student, you're living in luxury. Huge beds!!!! Heated bathroom floors!!!!!!!! And an ensuite which doesn't look infested!!!!!!! You're living the dream really.

Great halls! Only downside is the hobs need to be labelled you can get confused as to which dial goes with which hob and that has resulted in a fire for my flat. Apart from that love it. Its so close to the sports centre and the gym. If you do sports it's really well placed.

The halls were expensive for what they were, given the bathroom was not a bathroom, and the bath was communal which is unhygienic. However, it was a lovely location and a nice room.
