It’s a nice n friendly building with lovely and nice staff. Va Only real note is that I have a wet room as a bathroom which is kinda odd and annoying as now I have to mop my floor to avoid any damp smell. Apart from that it’s pretty chill

Really bad experience in there. Far too expensive for what it is. There are problems almost every week regarding maintenance and nothing is done or done too slowly. I do not recommend this place at all and I will leave as soon as possible.

The receptionists are amazing especially Diedre. They have been very helpful but the students are loud and made the experience worse.

If I were asked to describe Ewen Henderson Court, I would say it is an extremely poorly managed student accommodation, riddled with complex maintenance issues that are only ever repaired when understaffed maintenance teams are chased over a period of several days. Ewen Henderson Court employs unprofessional staff members who consume drugs on site and do nothing to combat criminal activity within the accommodation, such as theft. Members of staff are extremely slow to reply to emails, or fail to reply at all. Rooms come equipped with an array of maintenance problems and when students are offered alternate rooms to use, these too are inadequate. Unite Students withhold knowledge of maintenance problems from students whilst continuing to charge luxury prices and do so under the guise that maintenance support is offered on site. Unite Students are miserly and money-grubbing and fail to offer financial recompense that is nothing short of insulting. Do not stay here.

I’m paying £180 per week for an en-suite, given that it’s London this seems pretty good. All other Goldsmiths accommodations have cleaners and despite paying the same amount, we do not. There’s a common room with a TV that doesn’t work but there is a pool table and vending machines (that do work now, but didn’t when we moved). Positives are that you’re right next to two supermarkets and an overground station so really easy to get into Central. New Cross Gate isn’t the best location in the world however.

This accommodation was my third choice i didn't want to stay here! Stayed here as a kcl student and as I am reaching the end of my first year, I can definitely say living here hasn't been great. My flat was so anti-social! Problems with facilities like rust all over the bathroom floor, parts of the oven not working etc etc. Layout of accommodation makes socialising really really hard, so if you have bad flat mates like me... not great! Furthermore, the company that runs the accommodation, Unite Students began renting out short stay rooms for random people as if it were a hotel! This might not matter to some people but it directly breaches the contract with my uni. New Cross is fine and not too far from central. But PLEASE its definitely worth paying the extra 10/20 quid for something far nicer.

Poorly managed, impossible to work here, and the students (though they seem rarely to study) are generally awful.

Stayed here in 2016 during undergrad at KCL, Easy and often bus and tube access to Strand Campus which I was concerned about. Quite a social hall so making friends was easy :)

Not a good place for student midwives or nurses as they have a fire alarm that constantly goes off in your room each week, meaning if you had a night shift there is not a chance that you will be getting any rest. Alongside this they have staff that will just enter your rooms and building work going on right next door from as early as 7:30 in the morning. The rooms are freezing in the winter and boiling in the summer there's no in between

As international who live as home student flatmate is really a bad idea. They love to party and speak loud as if they rent the whole flat for themselves. Moreover, this student acomodation is not appropriate for postgraduate at all. Management handle a complain for broken equipment quite slow. The best thing in ewen henderson is the price.

It may look like a S***hole when you arrive and don't get me wrong, it is. But the social experience there was much better than the other King's Halls. Because you're in Zone 2 you tend to get a zone 1-2 travel card which forces you to explore London much more than others did. Also, it is much bigger than other King's halls so socialising in other people's kitchens was a very common thing. Overall if you do go here don't be disappointed like I first was, I and everyone I know there loved it.

Not the best halls but socially very good and not too far from Guy's Campus, quite a trek to Strand though. Facilities not really worth the price considering the location as well, and management can be a bit of a mess at times although people who work at reception are nice
