Great location - just a 2 minute walk to the university so can wake up right before lectures. Kitchen is very small for 10 people and gets crowded when everyone is cooking, but rooms are modern and nice

One of few halls residences on campus, 5 minutes from the uni so this is amazing. However, there are no social areas in the halls other than the individual flat kitchens, which are horrendously small, not fit for 10 people crammed in like we had. Wifi is ok, frequently dropped out on mobile devices, though. They habe shared rooms which I did, which although are nicer and bigger, with an ensuite, they should not have shared rooms at all. Students need privacy and their own space for calm if not even for studying.

Silverfish bugs in the rooms and bathrooms- they were not exterminated as promised. Office is only open on 8-10am and 4-7pm on a weekday. Bins get taken out & cleaned every day which is good. Only single beds. Expensive for what it is. Not modern and kitchens are poorly designed.

Although the rooms are adequate size for the cost our block has a kitchen half the size of all other blocks in the accommodation and I do not feel rent is adjusted sufficiently for this. The location is excellent and I understand this is what I am paying for however I feel 9 people require a larger kitchen. The shared en suite is an excellent feature that makes the accommodation affordable in comparison to private en suite accommodation however the strongest feature of Henry Price is the proximity to the city and the university for all student needs including shopping and nightlife. There is a lack of social facilities however possibly due to not many students living there however the staff are friendly and the caretaker is excellent and fixes most problems quickly

On campus, which makes it very convinient and easy to get to lectures. However we have had many problems such as the water not working at all for a weekend and power outages. Also the fire alarms are very sensitive, which was a big issue especially during freshers week .

Very good location and good kitchen facilities. Very social with large flat sizes. Bathrooms are shared between two which can be annoying. Expensive, but not bad in comparison to other halls.

Only self-catered residence on campus. Good because it is on campus, a very short walk to the city centre. Located by hyde park. Some of the blocks have been renovated, though some not. An almost en suite, sharing only with the room next door. Quite a lot of people sharing, with 9 people, though this is good for social experience though it can get loud. Wi fi is not great as it is right on the edge of campus. Only social area is the kitchen. A decent size room with a lot of storage space.
