Most helpful review

The best accommodation for post graduate students in terms of value for money. It is cheaper from George Eliot halls but it has an en-suite bathroom. Although it has a smaller room size and storage space but the bigger it is the messier the room gets. Also it is just a 5 minute walk from the Davison Building (which houses the library, student services, Starbucks cafe and study area) across a bridge. Also it is quieter and more peaceful than other halls except Penrose Court of course.

It's quite and clean, just like a resort without swimming pool and golf court. The disadvantage is that it's too far from the hall to the centre of Egham.

Highfield has such a community feel being just off campus that the social opportunities are frequent and you meet so many great people

Very quiet and yet social place, being a bit away from campus makes you not hear all the loud drunk people coming back from partying

I had a f****** great time in highfield, its far enough away from campus that security dont come all the time but close enough to pre and still get to the SU. The only problem I had at highfield were boring flat mates.

You meet so many new people in the halls simply because there aren't many of you in the area and you are separate from the rest of campus making you bond!

Close to lectures, calm area, unfortunately two women from cleaning staff very rude when I needed to put on clothes before letting them into my room announced. Too many people coming and going without warning. Walked into my room once to find a man there at 10.30 am, he was fixing the hinges on my door but all this makes me feel uneasy since I never know when I will get unexpected visitors who claim to have the right to come into my room right away.
