Made it super easy to make friends! Kitchens are cleaned Monday to Friday, all rooms are ensuites and it's super cheap! Even people who stayed in Butler and Tuke etc said they would rather stay in Reid cos it's the same but cheaper, catered (but still a microwave) and there's more people so it's more social!
Very close to everything on campus, the furthest lecture theatres and dining hall only being a ten minute walk away. Good social experience and made lots of friends due to the set up of the block. Only shortfall was the two small kitchens not being a big enough social space for 21 people and the lack of fridge space and cooker, but I guess that is made up for with the discount that you get in the dining halls. Perhaps not as nice an experience as staying in the nicer, more modern self-catered halls but worth it for the price.
Great social atmosphere in the heart of the accommodation side of campus and very conveniently positioned in the middle of the department buildings, dining halls and Egham (especially via the back gate shortcut). A great catered hall!
The hall as a great location, however the cleaning is really bad and their is some issues with the heating and the water of the building ( it is either really really hot or icy!) Their should be another fridge in the kitchen as two fridges for 25 people is not in off. Also even if we do not pay for a self catered kitchen we should be able to bring our own stuff to cook like an electric hob and not be penalized for it ( as it is impossible to eat a the hub or founders everyday given the taste of food and the price and honestly, it is hard to cook only with a microwave. ) Thank you and I hope it will help next resident of the hall
