It's going to be expensive. You're in Surrey. But, it's a great value for money if you're wanting to go catered as the rent is cheaper than self-catered. Rooms are randomly allocated. Sometimes you can be lucky and get a room with massive amounts of floor space and other times you won't. But even those with 'small' floor space still have plenty of room to chill in. Reid is on campus so is easy to get to other places. Nothing is more than a 5-minute walk away. The campus maintenance team are okay - they'll get the job sorted quickly but don't really have much care for privacy. Pantries are cleaned once a week and they do an okay job - nothing spotless and they won't clean if the pantry is a mess (seems a bit counterproductive to me). They hoover the stairs too but these will often get messy quickly. Pantries are tiny considering there are 11 people to one. And if you're all wanting to party, then fitting 22 people into a tiny space isn't comfortable. Everyone's super friendly though!
clean accommodation and nice stay and near the university which is a big advantage.
Rooms are spacious and pleasant, kitchen can become very grim when used frequently and rather small for 11 people.
Sharing 2 tiny pastries with 22 people can be difficult so social stuff. Very conveniently placed, middle of Hub, SU, Sports hall, short walk to founders
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!
I absolutely loved my time in Reid! I was with amazing people the entire time through and we all adored our time there with each other!
Catered is pretty awful tbh, have to eat within certain timeslots and only get 50% discount, would rather have paid more for self-catered
So much fun but those living next to the kitchen areas will be sleep deprived for their year!
Perfect location on campus, en-suite and cheap!
Generally poor, small kitchen space and cold, clinical feel means that I cannot recommend this hall to potential future residents.
Tied is excellent it offers value for money and have made so many friends for life
It's a really social hall because most of us share the kitchen and we all get to know each other really easily!
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.
The best choice for students in Royal Holloway. It has the perfect location and it is so convenient living there.
Very clean, always maintained. Perfect location- middle of campus
Great place to live. Had a good number of people to make friends with. Shame there was no social space other than the small kitchens.
Crammed, hot and was far away from everything, this year should be better, as the campus store has changed location.
In my experience Reid was really boring and quiet and i felt it was harder to make friends with the people I was living with
good for making friends because there were a lot of people in your block at Reid, however, no ovens meant you had to eat at founders or the hub, not an issue unless it was raining!
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!
not social at all, two small kitchens for 24 quite hard to share space & meet everyone
Just what you'd expect for the price. Not flashy, but not missing anything, except an oven and a freezer, but the discounted food makes up for it.
worst hall ever - yellow water, broken heating not to mention it being ridiculously over priced. Avoid!!
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
